But, seriously, anyone who says these are bass light simply has to blame either their source or the recordings that they're listening to.
I decided to listen to the Vicious Delicious album, and I think that it definitely confirms what I said earlier about what these headphones staying true to recordings. On the album, there's a lot of mixing between light and heavy/impactful bass, and the latter hits quite hard. It's just not that crazily overbearing (for lack of a better word; it's late) bass that something that the VSD1S has. And, again, this is with the stock cable and no amp.
Edit: Honestly, I'm ridiculously eager to hear what these sound like amped, as well as my B3s. And, I'll be most definitely interested in the te-05 if what mochill says about them as compared to the 90s ends up holding true.
I am still going to blame the headphones.
Sure, a source can help bring the bass output of these beauts, but you forgot the biggest factor of a headphone user.
Our sound preference. And the fit of these headphones in particular, as me and doctor have problems with the fit sometimes.
I enjoy good bass quality and enough bass quantity. I want a bit more bass quantity than my es700s. The martins almost reach the quantity of the es70ps, which to me, is enough. However, it is bass light Imo when the bass levels are a bit less or at the es700s level.
The re700s have more than the es700s in bass quality and quantity for nd to be satisfied. The quality of the martins are also better than es700s.
Cable source is the only thing I care about, I'm not spending money on an amp or dac at the moment.
The martins are still badass, especially in comparison to the rest of my gear.
But to me, the re700s are just as good as the martins in some ways, and quantity of bass Is one factor.
Sfw saved my martins life with that beats cable. I'm ordering it on monday.
Also, I know that the recording depends on the quantity, but again, my preference gets in the way of enjoying the martins to the fullest.Edited by vlenbo - 2/14/14 at 12:27pm
