What are the best headphones for Dubstep.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have been making dubstep lately and cant really feel the bass and other audio. So I considered getting new headphones and I cant find good ones. I don't care what style but the audio has to have good bass and be able to hit the high notes too. I am willing to pay any amount. (but not like $1000)

Cheers,Carson

Denon D7000 if you can find them? ;) (haven't heard them myself, but I had a modded D2000 that was essentially a D5000, and the bass and highs were very good (mids slightly recessed though, but I don't think that would be essential with dubstep?)) Maybe a Hifiman (also haven't heard them myself, but heard they have nice bass)?

Heya,

 

Depends on what you really want to hear. Some people listen for the wub. Some just like the style in general.

 

Suggestions:

 

M-Audio Q40 with Fiio E10. The reason is, the hardware bass enhancement is excellent. Add a software EQ bump in subbass of 1 or 2 more db and you're set.

 

Denon D5000 with Fiio E10. The drop is incredible.

 

Very best,

I'd agree with MalVeauX but also add, depending on where you intend to use them:

- Audio-Technica ATH-M50
- Bose QC15
- Ultrasone PRO2900

The Ultrasone are the best sounding imho (but lack any isolation and are not meant for mobile use - you can plug them into your iPod or whatever no problem, they just don't block out outside noise), the Bose are best for areas you want isolation, and the Audio-Technicas have competent sub-bass performance and are fairly comfortable imho (they're "bassy" to me - this is more to other people who are likely to tell me/you that they're not basshead cans, they aren't, I just don't like tons of impact all the time), they also cost a lot less than basically anything but the Q40.

I'm using QC 15, and the bass isn't really that good.. but the NC is perfected

 

 

Maybe try the studios? I've tried those too, but I don't like the static noise that they make sometimes. the static noise is normal because it shows that the NC is working, but i dont like it. 

 

 

But my friend has told me that the Ultrasone Pro 900 is like the puffiest and pillow-like headphones that have the deepest bass he has ever experienced. I personally have never tried the Ultrasone Pro 900's, but from the reviews and stories I have read and heard, they are probably the comfiest and have the best bass. I would go with that or maybe Beats Studios. Orrrr you can try buying the Beats Mixrs, which are for DJ-ing and are comfortable. (except that they are a bit tight at first)
