I did it the opposite way and it sucked, I fail.
 


Yeah it's never wise to glue pads together. LoL Unless your mod is finalized/ set in stone but still i would never use glue..... rolleyes.gif You can still stuff the stock pads if you cut open the driver cover fabric of those HM5 pads. haha It will look ugly cuz you will see the stock pads but hey you gotta do whatcha gotta do.

Ugh... Every popular kind.

Please, go open up even a skrillex song in a frequency response chart. Dubstep is treble heavy.

Just please... This is so silly having to deal with this when all it takes is a single spectrum analysis of a dubstep song to know its true.

 

Plus, remember I am a musician. I don't enjoy music the way most people do. Overly prominent bass gets in the way of the notes and production.

I way prefer the sound of the stocks now, I don't even think I want to change it anymore. Lol rolleyes.gif
 

 

Daleb, Like I said before.
 

There's plenty of genre's that don't emphasize on bass. Minimal dubstep, Chillstep, There's a lot in the 'dubstep' side of things. Just try looking around.

Skrillex is like the worst example you could have chosen lol

It's barely even dubstep, it's like pop/bigbeat.

Try playing some Delta Heavy or Flux Pavilion stuff.

The drop of this isn't treble focused to you? Like I said, old school dubstep isn't the same That IS bass focused.

Here, look at the frequency response chart of that song:

 


I hit right on the kick drum there biggrin.gif  But, as you can see, there is tons of treble and mids. especially compared to the average rock song or pop song.

 

Here is my type of dubstep, though:

I just really don't get how the drop isn't treble focus to you guys. confused.gif

I really don't think you understand. I MAKE this stuff XD I've listened to all these genres. I know how they work! If this was bass focused, I would know. Heck, I have WAY more bass then the average published song. Most dubstep artists turn the bass DOWN because they know most people will bass boost their music while listening to dubstep.

 

Plus, like I said, you can't analyze a song (which is the only way I know how to listen to music) with boosted bass. How are you going to pick out the chord progression/EQ settings/ compressors/every-other-production-thing if you're sitting there with only bass?

 

Thinking about it, I thought Dubstep was bass only before I start producing it, too, actually. But jeez, its not bass at all. It just feels that way.

Lol,

That music is bass heavy please don't try to convince me otherwise.

The entire time BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM, yeah okay, no bass (shakes head)
 

 

One cup mario music, two cups bass, dash of drop and you have what you just posted.

...

Please learn what the equal loudness contour is...

I guess if science won't convince you... I guess I don't have much to say :/

 

Anyways, these headphones. A+.

Hi daleb,

Making music doesn't equate you as being well versed with it a hundred percent of the time.
Skrillex is barely dubstep, it had been discussed thoroughly and mostly accepted as bro-step, and some other genre/sub genre there is. His music and the popular so called 'dubstep' music you guys listen to are radio friendly, so they do not focus on low rumbles as much as dubstep.

Listen to Burial with maybe an Audio Technica ATH-AD700 (bass shy headphones), without the lower end, the music will lose its context.

I don't mind people misunderstanding, but I have low tolerance with people who preach what is wrong.

Since you love Skrillex, listen to his new song Leaving. Dubstep doesn't have seizure inducing 'drops', and a fair bunch of his fans were confused with the song and asking "Where is the dubstep." and "Where is the drop."

Yes the spectrum analyzer is a handy tool, but its worthless if you're taking sample from the wrong sample group. Stop calling it dubstep and the confusion will be over.

I don't like skrillex at all. I'm just using what is popular.

Also, I'm just as bothered by you calling it "brostep" as you are bothered by me calling dubstep. Ugh, that was painful.

 

There is "old school dubstep" Which is what everyone here keeps thinking I'm talking about. Then there is modern dubstep, which you so insultingly call "brostep". That wasn't nice at all frown.gif

post #6610 of 8108

Let's get back on topic, This talk about dubstep isn't needed.
 

 

I can actually wear these headphones for a couple of hours now, They really don't bother my ears if i position them perfectly.

post #6611 of 8108

Me too! Its crazy how comfortable these can become with good positioning and letting the pads break in. Its been really fun taking these where ever I need to go, they always keep me entertained.

 

Edit: So I was listening to the song "Light a fire in your smouldering heart! (instrumental)". The saxophone during the chorus is amazing on these. Once it finally uploads to dropbox I'll get it on here (why it won't load I don't know).


Edit2: Here!

You guys should listen to some fast beats through these, namely trance music.

There is some good stuff here:

I can't tell whether you liked it or hated it XD

What gets me is that the original just doesn't capture the beauty of the melody line. The singer didn't do that great of a job, honestly.

And then the American version uses an electric guitar. Its good, but its still not a saxophone.

You could say I'm literally addicted to the bass on these things...

I don't even like electro for the most part but I find myself just loving the **** out of certain songs right now.
