Bass Headphones

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I'm looking into getting a pair of headphones for someone as a gift. I have Beyer T70s ( which I love), but the intended recipient thinks they are too light on the bass side. I'm not really up on whats available on the bass line, but am looking for a closed can, around the same price point or lower than the T70, thats of similar quality but with a bit more of a bass element.

 

So far I've been thinking Ultrasone Pro900 or AKG K550. I want to give them something that will satisfy their bass requirements, but will still open the door for them to the high quality separation and clarity that I get out of my T70s.

 

Any other suggestions or am I looking along the right line with those 2?

 

cheers,

Short and simple. Go with the Ultrasones. They have a lot of bass without overpowering everything else. The K550's really don't have as much bass, but I found them to be more bass heavy than say my Q701's, but even they are called bass light by people.

Hey,

thanks for the reply. Would the Pro900s need to be used with an amp out of an iPod/iphone or mac, or is there enough power in these devices to drive them on their own?

I'd suggest at least a small amp (FiiO E6 comes to mind) but I found that several Ultrasones can be driven through an iPod just fine.

Ultrasone high end models benefit GREATLY from amping, i would recommend getting one.

I would suggest you go for BeatsPro ($399) or value for performance headphones such as ATH-M50 ($120) or ATH-Pro700MK2 ($170).

The Denon D2000, D5000 are nice and bassy too.

You know I'm not a big Can user, Denon being my favorite. But years ago a buddy gave me a pair of Beyer 770 80ohms and the Bass those pumped out was like a sub right on your ears.  POWER BASS!!!   insane really!!!

The denon 2000's are also good, i think they use the same drivers as the 5000's
