Suggest me some headphones with good bass that can vibrate and shake your head? - Page 2

post #16 of 51

If you want head shaking bass I would consider a speaker system.

 

But if you want some bass two bass heavy phones I know of are the Beyerdynamic DT770 or DT990. Or XB1000

A headphone that shakes and vibrates your head and makes your eyes blurry?

 

On Bourbon street in New Orleans, I heard a jazz-rock band with speakers which produced massive bass and sub-sonic energy. It doesn't make your eyes blurry, it incapacitates you like a stun grenade.

 

You want an 18" or 21" subwoofer, not headphones.

Totally agree. With headphones you'll only get your ears hurting.

 

The only thing that has ever managed to - literally - shake my eyes is my car subwoofer (Alpine Type R 500 watts RMS in ported encolsure, tuned to 40hz).

 

Cranking the noise up is really REALLY bad for your hearing though... Sure, it's fun as hell, but I strongly advice you use earplugs / earmuffs if you do so.

My suggestion would be to get something like HE400 or LCD2, use an amp with hardware bass EQ (crank that to max), and then add software EQ on top of that, maximize it without introducing clipping. That would simulate the closest "skull-buzzing/rattling" effect that good subwoofers can have.

 

Typical dynamic drivers can pump out bass but it won't have the tactility that good planars have.

I took a ride with a car-audio fanatic. He had two 15" JL Audio woofers in his trunk and some bass-freak CD sampler. When those woofers kicked in, it felt like my heart stopped.

XB1000 For The Win!!!

I'm glad you've cleared that up, because from what I've read about peoples thoughts on them (XB1000), they performed better than the 700, and I found it difficult to believe too. The ear is the best measurement tool.

The only time I managed to get "blurry vision" and feeling a bit nausea as a result, not joking, was with Sony XB500 + digiZoid ZO set to the max bass level while listening to Three 6 Mafia - Late Nite Tip. This is probably as bassy as it gets, well OK if one digiZoid ZO doesn't provide you enough then get TWO of them and doubleamp them which I've also tested since I happen to have the different ZO versions and the bass if doing so is only limited by the headphone driver's physical abilities to pump bass, it starts distort/clip horribly sooner or later based on what the headphone driver can handle.

If you're listening to bass so loud that your vision is literally blurring then you are permanently damaging your hearing. Despite not sounding as painful as loud, piercing treble, it actually causes hearing damage as or more easily (perceived volume vs actual SPL). I know pro audio people who were having "fun" with bass and a couple days after the ringing calmed down had a severe throat infection + permanent hearing loss.

 

No offense meant, but that's basically the audio equivalent of huffing spray paint for kicks. No headphones will do that at normal volume levels.

 

If you just like the physical vibrations then maybe listen to them next to an actual subwoofer?... Or just sit in a vibrating massage chair? Or ride a flintstones bicycle with stone wheels and no suspension over a giant cheese grater? I don't know.

Ok, that made me audibly laugh at work...  I have no idea how loudly because I have my Pro700MK2s on but people are looking at me now...

Around 20hz my headphones start to vibrate enough it tickles. They aren't the bassiest either.

 

Alternative: Go to Cape Canaveral in Florida and stand by the rockets.

 

 

I don't think any headphone is that bassy to the point it blurs your vision and if there was a headphone that did that it can't be good for you.

I assumed the OP was sort of joking with hyperbole when talking about the effects. Going from 40mm to 70mm is not really the solution you need an order of magnitude increase over 40mm.

 

I have the Pro700MKIIANV and are quite happy with them.

Sony XB 500 for sure but after a while it got annoying but if bass is what you want go for it and not a bad price

For sheer quantity of bass, the Denon AH-D1100 tops most of the headphones mentioned so far. Though I prefer the clean, deep punchiness of the Pro700MKII.
