IDEA! Subwoofer+Amp Leather Jacket. Gives the simulated feel and experience of a subwoofer and amplifies any headphone while plugged through the jacket. Also very fashionable.

Quite a novel idea. Hilarious too, but not in a bad way. Maybe in a bad way if it had built-in speakers activated by putting your hands in the air. Micheal Bay would LOVE this jacket.

If Val were to do that, I would be disappointed. You can get a pair of GE vibration headphones for $15 that are probably from the same OEM as the Skullcandy Skullcrushers.

 

For those looking for subwoofer-like bass: AKG K1000 + Subwoofer tuned at around 50 Hz or wherever the bass rolls off on the K1000s and voila.

the closest I've heard to a subwoofer in headphones though, was my sony xb500 with ZO2 at max. too much bass IMO at that point as they can't do much else to begin with. 

I didn't mean the amount of air movement... I thought that would have been a no brainer.... sub woofers offer powerful deep and textured bass, the lp2 only moves air and doesn't provide much else, the M50 imo has powerful bass you cant feel, and not because it moves a lot of air. It also provides great texture ^^. 

I didn't think anyone would actually believe I meant the literal physical movement of the sub woofer, I was talking about the characteristics of sub woofer bass. Sub woofer offer good quality bass the only reason you feel it is because it is so big.....

as you can see I said BUT, which means I wasn't talking about the same thing ^^

I paid $80 for my LP1s, great deal I think.

lol I hope that is sarcasm because they don't have vibrators 

and yeah I think for 80 bucks from newegg for the Lp1's was a stellar deal since for a lot of people that's cheap enough to have for just one type of music ^^

Hard to imagine better bass punch and texture than the M-Audio Q40, particularly for the price.  Do Ultrasones really have superior bass to the Q40?  How does bass on the LP2 compare to the Q40?  Please note I am using portably with a headphone amp, so Denon's and other high end cans are out of the mix for me (also because of cost).  I am holding out hope that the M100 will be the ultimate headphone will provide audiophile caliber mids and highs along with powerful and precise bass.

I am an aging virgin who avoids wearing headphones in public so I won't look silly in the eyes of women. Can the M100 help me to feel more comfident in public and have better success with women?

No.  But if you transfer a small series of 14 payments of $500 to my bank account I can refer you to a headphone that does not only that but also cures erectile dysfunction!  ;)

I believe the Beats by Dre does this. It's proven science. Monster says so.

Our LPs and even LP2s shake quite a bit and in the hand naturally. As a matter of fact Funkagenda and Manufactured Superstars told me they sometimes mix tracks by "feeling" the headphone pulse.  Those vibrating motors are gimmicks!  BUT we do have a model named "VIBRATO"

For sure. I was definitely referring to the motors, please don't do that lol. I can understand the "feeling". Although my M-80s don't have as much bass as the LP2s (from the short listen I had with them), they're so punchy and liquid in the mids that I can feel synths in trance, and breaths and "P's" in vocal pieces.

Yup, the M-80s don't shake, but the bass is rich yet precise.  I do admit sometimes I like the "shaking" when I listen to long underground mixes and DJ, even if I didn't DJ I'd still use a LP/LP2 just for those moments.  Especially at the price they went for when we cleared out some stock of LP.

I thought M100 would bring best of both worlds? ;p OK well I don't expect M100 to be equally bassy as LP/LP2 and frankly I wouldn't want that either as I think it's impossible to get a very good overall sound quality especially midrange detail for such bass quantities but right in-between M80 @ LP2 would be rather perfect to me or in terms of decibels, ~9dB (peak) boost if I concider M80 to be about 5dB boost (comparable to Audio Technica M50, what I'd call entry lvl basshead material) and LPs about 15dB (heavy basshead material).

Yeah, I saw that.  It makes me wonder if V-Moda will release a mixamp-style DAC for consoles and PC...

You might not care about how your head looks in public, but some of us do. I think there's less irony in your post than you intended.
