Best basshead headphones?

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 

I'm not an audiophile buy any means. I love bass. Currently i have the vmoda crossfade lp but im selling them because they have too little bass. I would like a headphone that preferably doesn't leak and has a TON of bass. I want the sub-bass and can someone please recommend an amp too. I wil be using an itouch. Thank you.

The Vomda LPs have loads of bass. The only cans that have more would be the XB500 or 700. For sub bass you want either the XB1000 or a Denon D2000/5000/7000

I agree with Tangster, the XB1000 will blow your head away with all the bass lol. There is also the Audio Technica ATH-Pro700 MK2 that have plenty of controlled bass.

how about an amp? I was thinking about the cmoybb v2.3   Are they any good? also the digizoid z02. For the amp, I want it to have the punch witch the xb1000 and mk2 are lacking.

Also do the xb1000 leak and do they have sound isolation?

The Xb1000 dont have the best noise isolation...they do leak a bit from how big the pads are. They dont really need an amp to power them, but if you want to get one id get the FiiO E17 portable amp.

Also the e17 isnt portable. i need a PORTABLE one.

E17 is most definitely portable...I commute with mine everyday

^^ Not really sure, depends on how loud your listening to them. I suppose at 50% volume on your..Iphone...it would be about 10-20% leakage. And yeah the E17's are excellent for portable use.
