What to get for Extreme Isolation, Extreme Comfort, Extreme Sub Bass? - Page 2

post #16 of 37

I really can't recommend buying Bose headphones.

 

But YMMV.

i decided to be done. the denons come closest to what i am seaching for. decent subbass, soundstage isolation and comfort packed in a lightweight portable. will stop searching now, as all my other headphones do not get any listening time anymore. i will stay with these for a good while:

 

Open: K701

Closed: D1100

IEM: Mh1c

 

man, never thought this journey would ever end. finally i am quite happy.

The Denons' do have those qualities, and the K701's are a nice counterpoint to them.

 

 

Edited for clarity.

while the denons are nice, i am still reaching for more. meanwhile i tried the dt770 and they have less bass, than denon and q40. so i will have to give the m100 a try, right?

i need deeper stomach pounding bass, are only iems out there that can fit my bill?

Denon D2000/D5000 if you can find them at a nice/attractive price (but the treble on the D2000 is harsher...). They are very comfortable and deliver a lot of bass/sub-bass.

 

Q40 you already have...

 

V-Modas M100s DO deliver massive amount of controlled bass and actually they isolate 'Ok' but THEY ARE NOT comfortable... (at least not to my ears! :-()

 

Ultrasone Signature DJs. Have NOT tried these, but if they are bassier than my Ultrasone Signature Pro (which to me, they do apply a very decent amount of sub-bass!) then you will be good.

 

Of course, you can always look into the Sony XB line...

 

Regarding the DT770, I had the 80 Pro version (32 Ohm I believe) and although comfortable, I didn't really like them that much. (i.e. I prefer the Q40s over it even though they are not as comfy). But, as always, YMMV and you might actually like them.

the denons do not isolate so well. actually i tried my old philips shl8800 cheapo plastic toy and it is astonishing how well they are able to rumble. more so than the other phones i mentioned.

Well, there you go! Guess you found your headphones then! :-p

today i bought the philips downtown out of curiosity. they are not bassy at all. i think i will return them tomorrow and buy the xb700.

returned the xb700, as they do not isolate at all. sounded pretty similar to the d1100. i narrowed it now to

 

xb800

v55

k619

bose ae2

 

any other suggestions?

The Bose AE2 have very little bass, and I wouldn't even call them "neutral" in that regard. I put them up on eBay 10 minutes after unpacking them. They're nothing like the QC15, which I like a lot.

comparing their frequency graphs with the denon d1100 they seam to have nearly as much bass.

The Philips Uptown is extremely comfortable, pretty good isolation and has more bass than the the Philips Downtown.

post #29 of 37

Did you get to try:

 

Audio Technica pro 700 mk2

AIAIAI TMA-1

 

?

They are supposedly "bassy" but I haven't tried them nor don't know if they are more mid-bass than sub-bass...
