I've been using these pair with my samsung yp-rb which i bought around 3 years ago...(it uses the SoundAlive equalizer if you are curious) i was pretty satisfied with it until recently when I tried the Sennheisers Amperiors with the new I-Pod Touch models at the Apple store, and i was shocked to find the sound quality was vastly superior. (the Amperiors and HD25s are exactly the same sound-wise, correct me if I'm wrong?)
What was most noticeable was that when I was listening to a r&b/hip-hop song, my headphones were actually rumbling/vibrating from the 808/sub-bass, I had no idea my headphones could even reproduce that kind of bass lol. (just like how you would hear from a Beats by Dr.Dre headphones, but mids and highs are so much better on HD25s) After this I was pretty certain my mp3 player needed an upgrade. :P
I mainly listen to a lot of hip-hop and dubstep but also a lot old rock tunes and ballads, so I like having some punchy and strong bass but having great clarity in the mids and highs are just as important for me...does anyone have any suggestions? A couple of months ago I saw the Snazzylabs review of the Rocoo P player and I've had my eyes on it ever since, but there's no way for me to test it, would it really make the improvements I want with my headphones? Or maybe I could get an external amp/dac to use with my samsung such as a Fiio? I'm fairly new to this audophile thing, so pleeaase give me some advice, thank you very much! ;)
PS. I've noticed when I listen to music on my samsungs, kicks will sound very punchy/slammy when I equalize it but basslines will be audible but no power...if I bring the bass up, the basslines will sound full but then the kicks will lose that 'punch', I don't know if I'm making myself clear lol...would this problem be solved if I change/improve my mp3 player?
