This x 100000000. Couldn't agree more.

 

And DJs being the new rockstars of the game.. Well, lets just say, that fact alone keeps people like me in business.

 

The kids are all about CDJs these days for live performance, turntables are somewhat becoming uncommon. 

 

Not rare, but uncommon. CDJs are the norm.

In the scene, Hardstyle, that I follow, pretty much all events and most producers use Pioneer CDJs... the bigger models with lots of knobs n stuff than those seen in this pic though.

TH900 and D7000 (Lawton modded) is to me the epitome of what I call "audiophile basshead" cans.  Have them both and they are incredible fed right.   As are the D5000, D2000, TH600 and to me the D600.  The last four I list are just a step below the first two.  All the Denons thump with the right motivation (aka an amp in this parlance and vintage speaker amps specifically to me). 


I currently have the HFI-580 as my bass can and i'm looking to upgrade to something better, would you say the Pro 900 is a better sounding HFI-580?

Depends if you enjoy V-shape sound or not. The Pro900 also has heavily boosted highs that sound a bit unrealistic.

Can someone please list the effects on sound (and comfort) of the Alpha pads on the Q40's versus the stock pads?
I'm debating whether to buy them, but $60 for pads seems too much confused_face.gif

I've never heard the 580 and don't comment on phones I haven't heard.

As RPG said, some people don't like the highs of the Pro900, and hear them as screechy. Many do not, nor do I. Read the Pro900 appreciation thread, as there are a lot of positive stuff by owners. If you're sensitive to treble may want to buy them from a source you can return them to if you don't like them.

I got A.D.H.D.....don't mind me

Accuracy questionable....still not a bad way to spend a few minutes:D 

post #9773 of 11259
Hmm... Why do the 55's have a thick foam thing on the headband, but they didn't bother with the 77's, despite the higher price... Weird.

So guys, as I knew it would happen..the moment I started testing more headphones the addiction kicked in!

So now that I got a few, I am looking for the next one to try.
Of my current ones, the MDR-X10 gets the most of usage for sure. I tried the AT M50 from a coworker but the bass is just not there unless I crank my phone and E17 to max levels of bass which is just too much "tampering" for me. With the X10 I dont need anywhere near that just adjusting the mids and highs more.
Still I am sure there are better cans out there so I have been looking at the next pair to try in this order due to price or reviews:

Please note I will be using the FiiO E18 for this NOT the E17 as I prefer the E18. The E17 I used with the M50 above just to try get more bass from it.


#1 Beyerdynamic custom one pro:
The fact that you can change the bass so easily got my interest! Not sure how drastic the change is and how the mids and highs are compared to my X10 though.

#2 Denon 600 Just read about this today and they seem to be pretty impressive. It sucks not having stores near that carry any decent stuff. Even then, displays are usually lame unless you can connect your own source.

 

#3 Beyerdynamic DT770  I read the mids are not that good so not too sure about this one.

#4
audio technica pro 700 mk2

Any opinions are welcome!
Thanks

Oh, and since monster and Dre split, monster has actually made some of the best sounding headphones I've heard. Those Monster N-Tunes at stores?... Those are actually REALLY nice. I'd say they are better than the newer and older beats pro, studio, etc. My friend has a pair, and they are fun to use. They shake quite a bit with the E11... There's a bit more bass than treble, but its not bloated. Its actually really pleasant, head thumping bass. I was skeptical of them, knowing how Dre and monster teamed up to create overpriced fashion statements... But then I tried them. I said wow. Might want to check out some of the newer monster headphones. All of them have a futuristic, Sci fi badass look to them. And not ugly Sci fi either. COOL, with sound to match.

Also try the M-Audio Q40 as they are a staple of this thread. The AH-D600 is pretty good but they are also absolutely gigantic so do not buy it if you have an issue with that. The DT770 has too much of a V-shaped sound signature for me although it is supremely comfortable, but I am somewhat of a rare bass-head in that I do not like V-shaped sound signatures in general.

Are the X10's metal, or plastic?
post #9778 of 11259
Wow. Those denon ah d600's look really nice!... Plus they aren't THAT big. Although they are a lot bigger than most are accustomed to. I mean, a lot of people think that my 55's are gigantic. I guess they kinda are.

I have quite a few Denons right now, and I like their headphones. I think the D600 would do you well. Although, I bet most headphones will have less bass than the X10. Just be prepared for that.

 

But yeah, out of those I'd go with D600, or Pro 700 mk II. Just my couple of cents.

Oh yes I forgot aobut the Q40s. For some reason I never really gave them much thought. Thanks

They are a combination of plastic and metal on different sections. They feel pretty well done and what I like is that the seal on your ears very good so I dont ever feel that I have to push them against my ears for the full sound.

I dont really mind the size as long as I get the sound so at least I am fine with that. :) They are more expensive than the others though the only catch for me.

Well, luckily between the X-Clarity audio enhancement features of my Xperia Z Ultra and the FiiO E18 I still have a good reserve of Bass to use that I dont need with the X10 so as long as they are bassy, even if not like the X10, I will be fine. If the bass goes lower and more refined that is a plus. Not that I have complaints about the X10 in that regard.

Thanks!
