I find the same to be true with the XBA-30, but I'm sure you've tried a variety of tips on your XBA-30 already. I've found that wider bore tips produce better sound for me (currently using Auvio tips, but the TF10 ones are an improvement over stock as well).

 

The TripleFi tips are my favorite on the XBA-30s too. I am just loving these tips in general. They do a great job of unleashing the bass and taming the highs.

Damn, this thread just exploded. I stopped reading at around page 150 and now we're at 577 pages! So, uh, what did I miss? Are the FX40's and FX101's still the $20 giant killers, or is dsnuts hyping something new now? I know about the higher end stuff like the WS99 and FX200, but what about the cheapos?

Most talk that I know if has been the MH1Cs if you're looking for something good in that price range. Personally, I can't recommend them if you're not going to be using a DAC or amp. They have a good sound, but not very much volume and they scale magnificently. My favorite cheap phones at the moment are the FX40s. You could always get the S500s, they're not quite as cheap, but so worth the price.

I owned FX40, just sold em yesterday.

Great sound and value, just not my taste. Too aggressive.

What's the best value for a basshead, MH1C, FX101, or R1? I like massive sub-bass with neutral mids and highs.

I promise that they weren't fully burnt it. They were WAY too sharp for me when I purchased them, I almost gave them away. I started burning them with DnB at very high volumes for a while and it's made a very noticeable difference. With a ton of burn in they will actually sound pretty smooth.

Haven't heard the R1s but the MH1C has great bass albeit a tad slow, and has great sparkly mids with crazy smooth highs. It doesn't have massive subs but good enough. It's wayyy more refined than the FX101s but the 101s have a slight edge on the sub bass, but has pretty bright/ harsh highs and sibilance. To me they are more "natural" sounding since their sonic presentation is more linear, while the MH1Cs have a more 3D, more fined tuned presentation. But no doubt i would pick the MH1Cs over the FX101s anytime any day.

I don't know anything about the R1, but the MH1C is WAY better than the JVCs. It's got a monsterous amount of bass especially with an amp.
