Dist... Ort.. Ion? What is this "Distortion" you speak of? Here in the land of JVC that doesn't exist.

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... ;-)

 

But there's a difference...back then it was mainstream, music at the clubs for the youth involved music that got bodies together in an embrace...mainstream club music now (not sure if clubbing is mainstream anymore either) is a very isolated affair the last time I went...it slowly and surely headed that way.  The clubs of old varied the tempo of the music to take into account energy expended and time required for energy to recuperate, now it NEVER slows down..it stays at the same energy level - requiring lots of Red Bulls or whatever stimulants are needed - stimulation required to dance all by yourself.  A typical teenager in the 90s never had to go to niche clubs for this music that promotes embrace...it was every club, everywhere.  Can you see how this changes things, when something is mainstream or niche?

 

If clubbing is not about dancing than why club?  If dancing is not for getting girls, then why dance?  Without the sense of touch...getting girls becomes virtually impossible.  Can't emphasis the sense of touch enough, for this reason alone.

 

When I play music at parties...the millennials initially think how uncool - this old timer music.  But when I get between the legs of a woman with my right thigh and our hips move with the rhythm....they think differently and they go along and have a great time - the best time, because I am the best host.  Not blaming the youth, it's our fault, we didn't show you how - we were too busy pretending to be busy to impress other aspirationals like ourselves.

If I remember the stock pads are shallow?

I made that face because you cant really say that a headphone should isolate well because its closed. Also that is relative nah mean. It all depends on what the persons intentions are and isolation needs demand.

 

so yes and no a hp will or will not isolate because its closed. 

 

you are right though fam, the pads are shallow but again that wont fully determine isolation. I have yet to figure it out. on what makes for good isolation or not.

I got a pair of SMS Pro DJ and they sound nice and all  but the real leather ear pads are like putting ear plugs in my ear. They are truly passive NOISE CANCELING. I cannot hear anything. When they die I can use em for ear protection when I go back to car audio. Thick soft leather and memory foam....good stuff...too bad the driver is 40mm and it serves no real purpose in my life:(

Q40 are semi open btw. (For the earlier conversation)

This has some heavy bass notes. I don't normally listen to rap, but I listen to this for the bass. EQ'd on my D2k in iTunes it's awesome through my Fiio E12 with bass boost on.

It got very small sized openings at the back, I think if I remember correctly 6 holes in total in each cup, grouped 3 and 3 in two different locations, the upper corners where that "grille" starts (they are about 1 millimeter max in diameter and impossible to notice unless opening them up which I did once), if you put your ear next to the outer cup you will also hear some nice bass action going on thanks to the bass ports.

But the isolation is still pretty much average, probably 11~12dBr or the alike, M100 is also for example ~12dBr which I see as the average for closed. A few closed headphones got like 15~17dBr but there's also headphones such as Denon/Fostex which are technically also closed but only 7dBr so yea 12dBr is fairly average.

Some heavy hitting hip hop songs. EQ that bass up and enjoy!

I was not pleased when I realized the e12 had a bass "switch"

Then I heard it and fell in love. They nailed it. For my Hip Hop listening they nailed that setting. I'm a big fan now. I throw Cowon BBE and Mach3bass at my default setting but that "switch" on the e12 makes a very very huge difference for me

Ok my groupon Denon AH-C300 just came. No problem with fitment. Sub bass extension is noticeably deeper than my CKS77, and impact is stronger too. I don't think I've ever heard so much bass from an IEM. More bass than my XB500 in fact. EDM sound amazing. Jazz, and classical... not so much :p

post #9943 of 11259

I love IEM bass.

post #9944 of 11259
IEM bass actually serves a purpose as well because if there is some bass presence it can help mask some outside noise in public places.

Meh. I prefer full sized cans that shake your head, not just ear canal.
