Apples to oranges.
Pretty much- it's definitely heavy! I don't think anyone would say "not enough bass" except for maybe Hawaiibadboy- impact probably won't be adequate enough for him until the excursion makes his vision blur
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
Weird question, but how big are your ears?
i rock the ue6000 with EQ set to V shape. e11 set to 1 and active/passive i mix up depending on the song. below is a few songs that give me a bass boner at the moment.
Bass Cannon - Flux Pavillion
Basshead - Bassnectar
Sail(unlimted gravity remix) - AWOL nation
I wear medium tips that comes standard for most IEMs.
-I am also not wearing the stabilizers that came with it. I didn't like the way they feel in my ear. The normal seal does fine, I just got back from the gym (weights/elliptical) it didn't get loose on me.
-Recessed mids vs CKS77
-Sub bass extension is really noticeable. I love the fact that I can get that rumble feeling I really like from sub bass with the volume at much lower than my other headphones.
-Bass quality is very high and tight, but quantity is a little more than I optimally like. I prefer the M100's signature.
I am keeping these, they are hella fun and great for the music I listen to. Mainly deep house, tech house, trance.
Yep, the 6000 has lots of bass with my e11, with certain songs you don't want to switch them on, but they are pretty tight playing EDM. Mine are sounding better with use, they seem to be getting deeper. Definitely Q40 like and they actually have decent isolation. I like how they don't leak music out, pretty good for sharing an office too.
Best closed backs i've heard are my current cans the Ultrasone Pro 900's. Best portable i've heard is the AKG Q460 which i thought had great bass considering how small they are. For open backed cans the best i've heard would be either the Ultrasone Pro 2900 or AKG Q701. I found the Q701 surprising, although its bass light normally i was quite amazed at how it responded when i eq'd the bass up, literally rattling my brain! The Pro 2900's are the best i've heard with a flat eq.
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.
not to be an impertinent youth, but whats all this about the young generation doing things wrong? whats all this about it being your generations fault? except violence, there are never any victims - only volunteers. if generation A created a problem, its entirely generation Bs fault for accepting it. just because you find todays club music to set the wrong vibe, doesnt mean it does. just like music changes and evolves, so do the people listening to it. and if someone doesnt know how to pick up the girls its his own fault - not the musics. "friend zone" is a ridiculous notion created imho by people who are too shy to be direct with women.
i agree that today going to a club isnt necessarily about dancing or music, and what it is about can sometimes make it a little hard to communicate with strangers (i think you know what i mean?), but thats not the case for everyone... i know plenty of people who go dancing in order to dance with girls and meet new people, same as i know plenty of people who go to clubs in order to do things that we dont discuss on head-fi. to each his own i say, clubbing isnt meant to be anything, its meant for whatever purpose you give it, be it girls, just dancing, a night out with the boys, chemical intake - whatever...
when i was about 16 i came to an understanding - EVERYTHING is my own fault. i never blame anyone for my problems. if mum and dad (i.e the older generation) didnt prepare me for something, i prepare myself. if i find something hard to handle, i try again. blaming the older generation for things is just refusing to take responsibility. saying that your generation is to blame for todays problems is cutting the young generation way too much slack.
just my humble 2 cents...
lol, thats so unfair! big ups mate, i wish i had the funds for those. i wonder, are you planning on giving the shure 1540 a try? and one more question if i may, how much better are the d7k than the d5k in your opinion?
