At the moment I have Sennheiser HD 598 and a creative titanium HD card. I want to know is there anything I can add to improve the sound and maybe bass etc?

What's wrong with the bass? Are you looking for deeper bass? Better-controlled bass? More, louder bass? All of the above?post #3 of 611/21/12 at 6:39pmQuote:
I would try using EQ: http://www.head-fi.org/a/how-to-equalize-your-headphones-a-tutorialpost #4 of 611/21/12 at 7:07pmQuote:
If you wanted more bass, you should have gotten a different headphone.
Not to be negative, but that headphone simply won't get very bassy. The only thing you can do at this point is equalization, and only a little at that. Research equalization here.
Very best,post #5 of 611/21/12 at 7:17pmQuote:
The HD598 is a very good headphone. If you run a sine sweep test, the subbass on the HD598 is pretty representative of what it sounds like in real life. Problem is that due to headphone design, you won't be able to feel the bass. The Denons are your best bet if you want to feel subbass. Use the money on new headphones, not amp/ dac, as the improvements offered by an amp/ dac are very subtle.
The D2000 is, from what others claim, a very good headphone if you can properly equalize it. Without an equalizer, the HD598 simply has far superior midrange and treble.post #6 of 611/23/12 at 3:48pmThread Starter
