But considering the cheaper price tag and IMO better sub-bass rumble, VB I would take first. I didn't like the Atrio design, it's plastic and feels like something you win in a kinda surprise egg. So VB would be my choice, plus it has the changeable bass ports, so if you decide one day you don't to be basshead that week you can tone bass down. VB reminded me of two little mini air compressors pumping air in my ears, at high volumes they would begin trying to shake their way out of my ear canals (seriously when amped the earpieces would shake). cool.gif I bruised my eardrum one evening abusing them. redface.gif
Pay less, get more, makes sense to me.

VB has much better sub bass, and almost zero bleed, absolutely unbelievable IEM for basshead...IF just in case that the bass is not loud enough still, I would recommend the following

  1. Go to the doctor and get your ears checked out...or
  2. Buy yourself Digizoid Zo, paired with Hippo VB should be a bass nirvana for you L3000.gif

The Hippo VB is a bassheads dream and if they don't have enough for you then you must have hearing damage.  They also are a good IEM in other areas as well with nice detail good highs and a good over all soundstage.

Most bass volume goes very definitely to the TFTA earphones. I have never heard them, admittedly, but it seems very obvious from all reviews that they outclass just about everything out there in terms of bass volume.

JVC Fx101. Pure basshead IEM. I can feel the bass all the way to my chest.

Sony XB90EX!!!! May be the best bass I've heard from any IEM.

Most of the cheaper bass-centric IEM's boost upper bass (50-100hz) to make it seem like they have a lot of bass. The VB has ample bass, but it has response down into the mid/lower 20Hz range but doesn't bleed into the midrange like others and isn't boosted like crazy in the upper bass region. Best sounding bass and lowest bass response I've heard in an IEM. I found that the 2-dot bass ports had the best sound as well.

For the absolute MOST midbass I would suggest the TFTA 1XB as well. The most midbass possible in an iem without further amping or eqing or using the digizoid ZO2.

Hippo VB gives you 3 plates to tune the bass, the 'low' bass plate gives you ample mid-bass, the 'medium' bass plate gives you an awesome sub-bass, with no absolutely no bleed whatsoever, the 'high' bass plate gives you both mid-bass AND sub-bass, and all that for about $75

It depends on what they listen too, sub-bass are good for hiphop & RnB, whereas mid-bass are good for EDM

2 dot plates all the way! I had the best results with those. Amping with something like E11 was great fun with Hippo VB, although there was still tons of sub-bass with my Sony MP3 player. Using E11 was like feeding the monster. (gives you alot of power in a small convenient portable package) I remember some of the sub-bass rumble was totally insane. They go low and hold decay, you actually feel da bass. 100% car sub woofer style!

Sub woofer for an in ear solution for sure.! Might pick another pair up just for kicks. BOOM!

Thank you everybody for all of your extremely helpful posts, but I have decided to go with the Hippo VB's due to their bass ports. 
I still have yet to buy them and wanted to know the difference between Jaben.net and Jaben.com, .net offering a GoVibe Mini DAC

So once again I'd like to thank everybody for their contributions to this thread.

If anyone has information on the difference between those sites, it would be fantastic help, and any information on the GoVibe Mini DAC would also come in handy.

Thanks!

Way to go mate, I am sure that you won't be dissapointed...

 

Let us know what you think about Hippo VB once purchased - all Jaben's site are the same I think, AFAIK the online store is accessible through jaben.net

Hate to say this, but it's the truth-- if you want bass, Beats Tour will thump your head off.  Not much nuance, but if it's bass you seek...

Haha, I remember the beats tours I had, the bass was pretty good granted. tongue.gif Not $200 AUS good though. I was pretty impressed with the sub-bass though. lol.

Now, you better leave, before people come running with the anti beats pitch forks! lol wink.gif
