This is true. Being a bass player, I always seem to look for quality of bass, way before quantity. In fact, I'm usually turning the 'bass' knob down on stereos, like in the car. But I have seen a few people who think more bass is better bass.

For a quarter of the price of Solos :)

Back on topic, how about this little bit from Jays? What does this even mean as a whole?

 

1000

Yet again, this is vague enough to be passable. Perhaps the "voice spectrum" refers to frequency response, or in the case that it refers to the human voice they could mean Barry Manilow's.

Seriously has anyone here heard the AKG K181DJ??
Its a very good headphone with exceptional bass performance.
(I'm still curious as to why it's so underrated.... They sound better then the HD25's IMO)

 

Just saw this. I have a pair sitting beside me. I've been meaning to do a review of it for a while since its price really has tanked recently and should get more attention. I think it does bass, and really everything really weirdly. I can really only listen to them in "Small Club" mode because "Large Club" awkwardly enhances the low bass a lot. It manages to not mangle the rest of the sound, but it sounds especially weird. The midrange is honky too, especially when I compare it to the K271. I definitely don't think they surpass the HD25, but I do think they're a pretty good value at the price they're at now. I like them more than the M50's of which I'm convinced I'm cursed to using messed up pairs. I just don't see any of the merits people talk about.

 

But anyway, I wish that a company--any company--would be able to create a combination of looks, sound, price, and marketing. I've been endorsing California Headphones because they have the first two kind of right. They could sound better, but they look really nice in person. Denon's new headphones might have fit the bill, but they decided to price them outrageously and probably wouldn't market them.

LOL, That just makes no sense!

Wouldn't V-Moda fit the bill for that?

The price/sound ratio still could be better, and the looks are controversial.

post #310 of 436

Forgot about V-Moda for some reason. I can't really speak for them either way because I've only tried the Crossfades and was disappointed, but I actually haven't seen them in any store other than Costco. Maybe the M100's will show up in more electronics stores? I know Best Buy is finally ramping up their headphone choices by adding Pioneer, AiAiAi, Sennheiser, AT, and AKG headphones.

Well I guess that's true for the Crossfades, but the M-80 has pretty excellent price/sound ratio if you ask me.  Looks are always controversial though - I personally don't even like how the Beats look.  I guess the V-Modas will probably have ever-so-slightly less mass appeal though.

I've heard both the Crossfade LP and M-80, They're quite good considering the "looks" and customization.

Too bad their version of ramping up still panders to double Bs and truly high-end headphones tend to be relegated to the Pro Audio section where no headphone shopper except the already in-the-know ever ventures.

So true.

Different Best Buys have weird layouts. A few of the ones by me have pro audio close to the other audio stuff. It's weird, but convenient.
