S500 w/AT Pleater + Fiio E11 EQ1 bass boost = PERFECT.
the EQ1 bass boost brings back the bass body of s500 while using AT Pleather.
I really like the bass boost from my JDS C421 amp with my s500's, really clean and punchy!
I ordered a pair of Senn HD 25-1 II pads for them on amazon also.
He did reply to you so yeah lol
I agree with him, S500 is pretty much the best for Trance you can get under $200.
Sorry I'm Italian and I do not understand English well ...
I currently have the cal + FiiO e10 ... if I buy the s500 what we gain in terms of bass, mid and high? Especially low interest me ...
Are so different from cal? Have more bass for k518?
should I buy the s500?
I don't know about the K518, but the S500's are definitely NOT lacking in the bass department
I'm a little undecided on an Italian forum ... some say that they have more details cal and lower than the jvc 400 ... what is the truth
But the 500 has more bass to cal?
bass of s500 is much faster than call. i would not say, that it has more midbass, than the akg, but reaches much deeper, down to about 25 hz. resolution, and imaging is really good, and can easily compare with 150 eur phones.
Hey fanheads ,
Anyone directly compared the bass on S500/S600 to XB500s? Is it comparable on flat EQ?
andreamang, add a bit of a salt to the answers, they are one-sided (you know where you are asking this, look again at the title...), but the thing is, CAL is not good at sound isolation and background noise (outdoors) basically kills the bass.
