First of all: I know that my english is garbage. Sorry.
I know that there are many threads of people looking for bassy headphones. I already checked a lot of them out but I am starting to become really confused right now . I guess I just read to much reviews and comparisons.
These are the headphones I am currently looking at:
- Ultrasone HFI 580
- Audio Technica ATH-M50
- Audio Technica ATH-700MK2
- Beyerdynamic DT 770
- Beyerdynamic DT 990
- V-MODA Crossfade LP
- V-MODA Crossfade LP2
These are the headphones I own or heard:
- AKG 518 DJ
- Shure SRH 750 DJ
- Beats by Dre Pro (sorry to mention them)
And this is why I'm confused:
I will star with the ATH-M50. The ATH-M50 is recommended all around the internet. I added it to my list but it does not really convince me because people say it has bad soundstage. An other headphone would be the ATH-700MK2 but reviewers seem to like the ATH-M50 better. Then I heard about the HFI 580 which was told to be just as good as the ATH-M50 but with better soundstage, which is quite important to me. Later someone said that he used to like the AKG 518 DJ, then bought the HFI 580 and was really disappointed by their bass. So this would mean that the ATH-M50 the ATH-700MK2 and the HFI 580 altogether have not more bass than the AKG 518 DJ?
This would be pretty weird, since I heard someone saying that the Audio Technica ATH-700MK2 "bashes and mashes" the beats pro in every single aspect.
I did not hear a lot of the Beyerdynamic DT 770/990. Only that they REALLY have a lot of bass and some people saying they don't.
The V-MODA Crossfade LP seem to not be admired and the LP2 are not very well known.
What I'd like to know:
- How do the headphones I currently looking at compare to the headphones I know or heard? (mentioned above)
- What headphones are good for me?
What is important to me:
1. Bass of course! (I can not really say what kind of bass I like since I have not a lot of experience, but I think I rather like punchy bass)
4.No too much loose of any other sound quality just to have more bass
I know that "good bass" is a bad term, but a lot of people tend to just say good or bad bass, and that makes it really hard for a nooby guy like me to distinguish the kinds of bass.
I hope someone can make things clear once and for all.
I will be glad about every answer :)
