So far I liked all the iems i gotten from hisoundaudio...popo is bassy without being floppy!
The pro900 is very hardy...and looks good on the head.
..... figured that... but it's a player with an amp included in it, so it does what the e17 does, i think, if not, what doesn't it do that the e17 does? again, is it worth paying the difference.
well every dap has an internal amp... dont know how good the amp is on the player though since i dont own it. you will probably need an external amp if you are going for high quality sound
Since you guys are talking about amps and the OP would like bass, go check out JDS labs. They have the cMoybb (BB for bass-boost) and the C421 (also with bass boost). Hit up John and ask him about the bass and what your looking for. He can customize the gain for your cans and give you quite the wub wub.
Hello, i don't like the looks of this cmoybb :P i know it's a lto cheaper but it looks also cheap quality like it would break fast...
sorry, im pretty new here, are you telling me i should send a pm to "john" here in the forum if i would go for one of these 2 models?
Hello, that choice has already been made some posts ago, i'm now looking for a portable amp. but thanks for your input anyways, it confirms the good choice :)
I mean its just made out of a altoids tin, trust me, they are build VERY well. John has never had a cMoy that he built fail on him.
Anyway, the c421 is a very solid amp, but since it costs so much I'd be careful with it anyway.
i have the fiio e17 and its good for being a portable amp, i recommend it
Hello agan, i had to make a cut in my budget so i will go for the beyerdynamic 770 pro after all and for the fiio e17.
now i got the choice between 80ohm and 250 ohm , i think the 250 will be better quality but will be less louder right, but i gues it will be loud enough with the fiio e17, knowing that i like to listen very loudly to my music.
edit: lol **** this no, i'm gonna wait till next month and buy the ultrasone ^^ argh.. i really hate this bose headset.. it sounds really awful.
Hey again, i have one more question about the ultraosne pro 900, about the cable, i've read somewhere that the cable is not replaceable, is this true? it looks replaceable when you look at the pictures though... i just got scared by reading this somewhere....
I would recommend M-Audio Q40 + FiiO E17. For those genres I think you find the highs a little disturbing on PRO900 especially if you like to crank the volume which isn't good for your hearing anyway. Q40 have the perfect amount of highs and mids for hardstyle in my ears, I'm a great fan of hardstyle and Q40 has some of the best strong but good quality bass around too like PRO900 but the high frequencies are more reasonable on Q40. Also the mids are more forward on Q40 vs PRO900 and the E17 has treble (and bass) control in case you'd want more highs for Q40.
PRO900 works quite nice for more silent music level listening, as it has a good amount bass and clarity at low vol, the Q40 you can listen at a little higher level without feeling any discomfort. I didn't like PRO900 personally as I found Q40 much more "engaging" to listen to, I got the feeling of wanting to dance a lot easier on them. ^^
Hello rpgwizard, ok thanks, but i think i'll go for the pro 900 anyways because i'm starting to listen more and more to other kinds of music (piano music, reggae..) so i gues i need these high highs too. also the looks of the pro 900 is just stunning. the looks of the m-audio is comparable to the beyerdynamics, it's a studio headphone. but i will take the fiio e17 ;)
but you are making it harder for me to choose the pro900 now by saying all this... :D especially becuase of this freaking price difference between both.... but i found a audiophile's music shop in my town, i will go and take a look soon.
