The Basshead Club - Page 662  

post #9916 of 11259

Okay, this old man has gone through youtube and checked out EDM, Drum and Bass and Dubstep...are there any other subgenres I've missed?  Of those three categories, I definitely a absolute preference for Dubstep.  Drum and Bass is more of a chill type sound and EDM is what they play in today's nightclubs.  But I definitely connect with the "kill yourself in a high speed car accident like James Dean" type sound in Dubstep.  Dubstep, I can train in the gym with, it will take me there.

 

Old man rant time...

 

I feel sorry for today's youth, because the generation previous has ruined it for the youth of today imposing all these rules and regulations on your natural tendencies to be free and wild.  You can't start a bonfire on the beach...or even drink alcohol openly at the beach...not that I was able to either...but parking was definitely free in Bondi Beach during the 90s...hot cars, hot girls, street racing and burnouts on the main strip - on a Wednesday night after school - it was packed.  Go there today on a Saturday night and it is empty...there is not a single dance floor on the main strip. 

 

You wanna dance, to get girls.  You can't dance to get girls in all the genres above, the sound does not allow you to move in the correct manner, does not allow you to get close and personal - it's a solo affair moving to any of the music above, you dance, but you dance by yourself, without being allowed to hold a girl...what do I mean?  I mean this:

 

 

Or even this:

 

 

You wonder why being 'friend zoned' is such a big issue today...it was never an issue since world war 2 ended.  Not your fault, it is my generations fault. I apologise to all the youth of today for the prevalent narcissism of my generation and the generation before me that has resulted in the isolation of  today's youth.  I apologise for us constantly blaming you guys for our problems. End Rant.

Those are actually another viable option. GR07BE may be up your alley too. With workout IEMS, you just want to make sure you don't get anything that's too expensive and is too valuable. (But price and value are relative to each individual.) You are adding sweat, motion, machinery, torsion...into a workout. There are so many more variables to add than just sitting home on your couch and listening.

How does the UE 6000 compare to Q40 and other bass heavy headphones?

 

I have the UE 6000 and find the overall sound pleasing, they don't hit hard IMO. But, I only have an e11 to push them with. The UE 6000 works well with my ipod using the built so called noise cancelling, sounds more like level 2 on my e11. I guess I got a good set, the sound is even, good isolation, no hissing like my past Sony noise cancelling phones. I'm happy at $80, I can use them at work where it gets very loud with air presses and compressors running.

 

I've been mostly an IEM user, my old CX301 $30 ear buds have bass quanity although sloppy, but they lack every where else. So I also ordered the Yamaha EPH-100 hopefully also a warm bass heavy choice. I hope they can fit under my motorcycle helmet too. The C300's look like home use only to me, isolation is very important in my case. Looks like the C300 Denons are fairly shallow? No double flange tips?

Are the IE 80s any good? I'm thinking about getting a pair as my portable earphones, but don't know whether I should get them.

 

I can get a brand new pair for 150 GBP - is that a good price?

Please make sure that it is no fake. IE8/80s have been faked a lot. I checked before I got mine.

They're a replacement - the guy bought some IE800 while waiting for them so he doesn't need them now.

Lol. Hawaii's two favorite cans are both JVC. SZ2000(I want these SO MUCH), and HA-MR77X's. I could tell straight away that he didn't outright say JVC so he didn't sound biased... Its ok to like products made by a certain company as long as you like them more than the competition. (notice how I didn't say they are better. I too, really love JVC, but I won't claim they are the best for everyone.)

My view - have had the Q40 for over a year and after getting it dialed in with non-stock pads and a V-Moda cable, it's a sound signature I liken to the Denon line.  Had the UE6000 for a week and sold them as I was in search of the ultimate portable can.  Started with M100, Beats Studio (early model), Sennheiser HDJ7 and then tried UE6000.  All are gone.  I'm staying with the Q40 since I don't run any more due to a neck issue but for outside yardwork and stuff like that the Q40 fits the bill. 

 

The UE6000 disappointed me as I thought it was going to be very good for portable use but the sound sig just didn't do it for me.

LOL!!!

Well, no one said this type of music is for "dancing to get girls"... I Think?!?!

If you want to dance, that's what merengue, salsa, etc. is for!!! Just listen to Orquesta Macabeo, El Gran Combo, Marc Anthony, Victor Manuelle, etc. etc. Of course, there's always some "danceable" pop tracks to either get crazy or just plain slow-dance... so... ;-)

The reason I haven't just settled on the Q40 is isolation, already have cans that leak too much. I was hoping the UE 6000 had more impact, but its plenty bass heavy and it doesn't drown out the mids. I guess I want to rattle my jaw a bit, maybe a JVC is in my future.

 

I'm not living alone now, so my 15" Velodyne sub gets used mostly for movies. I guess I'm a basshead, I have subwoofers in my bedroom and my office and my work shop. But, the people around me only listen to country, that gets boring after a while. I listen to almost everything depending on the mood. I'll crank up some electronic or heavy pop in the shop sometimes till I get too many complaints.... I work with my semi-retired father and he hates everything but country, at least he likes it loud. :)

The Q40 is a closed back headphone though, it should provide good isolation.

JVC IS NICE MASSAGE.

I wish it had good isolation, I guess you could call it moderate. Don't have Q40's right now for a direct comparison though, but I don't remember them being very isolating, maybe 12 db or so. I think they hit harder with the e11, but its hard to say. The 6000's are still new. I work in very loud environments in my shop or even on my farm tractor, so I can tell right away how they isolate. When I'm operating my open deck tractor pulling soil implements I'm stuck using IEMs because that diesel roar gets old after a few hours and you need around 30db of isolation, even then you still here the engine clearly. I compare my phones to 22db triple flange ear plugs as a reference. I also use 32db foam plugs, but they are almost too much, can't talk to people around me.

 

In the shop the UE 6000 aren't bad, they give good bass with good isolation. But, the noise my shop puts out is major, with double ear protection you can still feel each press cycle in your ears when running thick material. If the Q40 had UE 6000 isolation I would be happy though, I can't expect 32 db isolation from over ears, the only ones I have tried that provide plenty isolation are the ety IEMs with the triple flanges, but the bass is almost zero IMO. The UE's are burning in some, they sound better with use, I've been using them the most today. I've been switching back and forth to my IEMs, so I can tell they have loosened up a bit. Makes my CX301's sound really bad. :)

 

I'm glad I found something with strong bass and isolation, I guess I should be satisfied. Always want more though. Being able to quickly pull off the over ears is nice when you need to talk to a customer or answer the land line. Otherwise I would stick to IEM types.

I just turn it all the way up and feel bass on my head.. I hear nothing when those are blarin'. XD.
post #9930 of 11259

I like it loud too within reason, but distortion sucks so I can't crack the volume up all the way. I was pleasantly surprised that the UE 6000 has a good rumble with no amp and its plenty loud. When you work in a noisy place the volume can't over come the racket though, well I guess it will eventually when you go deaf or hear constant ringing. :wink_face:

 

So far, I've kept me hearing by using ear protection over the years. I can still hear very well, my friends have lost their hearing mostly due to riding motorcycles with no ear protection for many years. I was forced to wear hearing protection at work, I'm glad they have those rules. My father lost much of his hearing working without any hearing protection on construction sites.
