That wire looks gorgeous and the kitchen looks very Japanese...you in the land of the rising sun??

post #9887 of 11259

excuse the unfinished headphone stand.

from day one bass alone:

 

impact is pretty good. Its better than any other sennheiser I have heard to date in impact though its only a little more than the yamaha in impact and less than it in rumble. 

 

I am learning that impact and rumble are as different as lighting and thunder. It all depends on where it hits. In this case the housing is really solid and keeps it somewhat controlled. 

 

compared to the q40 the bass is almost as tight but this has more bass than both the yamaha and q40. 

 

In the mix the bass is dominant but not super boomy and sloppy. If the q40 made non bass heavy music heavy then these do even more so I think. The bass is a real pleasure to listen to all by itself.

 

I have other issues with this headphone in other places though and it didnt wow me. I will spend more time on it and it may grow on me. I will say that my hopes of being able to use this in the studio to record vocals with have been let down a bit. 

 

this is a bass report though so I will try to leave it at that. I prefer its bass to a lot of headphones I have had. Just not its balance.

I was thinking your hunt had ended. All the Senns I have tried ...every single one was lacking in impact. I can say the same for AKG (that I have tried)

 Yeah Thunder and lightning. The hit (strike) and the rolling thunder (driver following the thunder to spectrum points down under). Fun as hell!! I'm sure these are better balanced than my new can but a huge lightning strike followed by a rolling thunder is a smile inducing event for a basshead. 

Thanks for never being a fanboy. Too many folks refuse to find any fault in something they recently purchased.

 

Looking forward to a full report and where to put these on my wiki:D

yeah me too. I was thinking it had ended as well. 

 

This makes me really understand the q40's appreciation. The bass is dominant in the mix but the the mids are ill effected and it sounds great. That is very rare.

My butt hurt was very high because I only got to hear that beautiful signature for a few minutes before fate dealt me a bad hand. I get the love for the Q40 so I never did a review on this site. I had an unusual event. 

It all led me to here and "here" is a happy place so all things happen for a reason...I'm rationalizing now:D

 

I'm done hunting but my target was supreme sub impact ...that's a very specific animal and yours like most is more complicated.  My simple caveman brain is a weakness (my ears are about to bleed) and a blessing ( I don't have to scour the web hanging on other peoples adjectives and glorifying or bashing.

 

Good luck and happy hunting.

thats all true but the caveman part. If I didnt spend so much on this freaking thing then I would easily be able to understand it. But at 389 i put my hopes where my money was. 

 

Thanks for the luck. Next stop... I dont know

Atleast i know im biased xD

And yes, i would view the signature dj as hi fi low end and the dido d901s as bass cannons(not only do they hit hard stock, the respobd VERY well to eq. My signature djs can only have about the same amount of bass boosted)

This is why I am making a Wiki. 

dido cost 800 bucks and sound beautiful and slam very hard. And also gulp and choke on a lot of amp. No shame there. They are on the list. But they distort. It takes a lot but they distort. Cannons....they are not. Cannons don't distort before your ears do.  40mm drivers seem to fail sooner than 50 or over..physics? I dunno. I'd love a pair of dido ps but I'm a 1 genre' listening caveman.Cannons will do.

 

BTW...your 16 Where you get the cashola? You slinging crack ;)

Post a pic of you holding the sigs and dido with a paper saying hawaiibadboy or it...never...happened :D 

 

EDIT:

I'm j/k.

I miss that and don't. So long as you can get a refund (if that's what you want) then I guess it's all good.  Did somebody's glowing review steer you or is this all on you and what you thought you could do? My biggest mistake was thinking expensive drivers have lots of tweakability.....it seems the opposite in my limited experience

As with Grizzlybeast, I was sure my PORTABLE search had ended, but the 7's were TOO BASSY and imbalanced. Hawaiibadboy, I actually think they would work for you. Seriously.

GrizzlyBeast's are in the FS forums now.

Question: would the Denon C300 be good for running/exercising? From what I'm reading, the sound is exactly what I'm looking for but the fit doesn't seem to satisfy everyone. Besides, it's about time I add an IEM to my headphone collection. smily_headphones1.gif

For anyone interested, here are my measurements for HD6/7/8:

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/699827/sennheiser-hd-6-7-8-dj-appreciation-thread-opinions-reviews-feedback-pics-discussions-etc/360#post_10290002

 

The highs are definitely subdued, by up to 10dB vs something that many would consider "neutral".

 

I seriously appreciate the downwards slope all the way. Couldn't really imagine better curve to have fun without piercing your ears, yet everything still sounds very clear.

+1, I actually can some validity to your statement. A fun dj headphone. I used the HD25 for about 8 years, had a good run. More neutral, mid-bass, borderline sibilant at higher levels. The HD8 is a different flavor. Still accurate, and adds a lot of texture without any "piercing" highs that most DJ's hate.

Horrible...just horrible for exercising or running. You could try superglue and apply to your ears, they "just may" stay in your ears then...otherwise, if you can get over some sharp sibilance, they aren't bad. I saw a groupon deal a few weeks ago for a new pair, $50. Nice deal, probably gone now.
