DT-770 Pro 80hms crappy bass - Page 2

post #16 of 38

When i was running my 770/80's just straight they had plenty of bass, no matter the positioning on my head. Now im running them through an e7 (bass setting 3 for dubstep) and eq'ing them. They have enough sub-bass to cause a small earthquake on my ears. If you want a good test song for sub-bass i would suggest ephixa-some wobbles lots of sub-bass, when eq'ed with this song i actually feel a bass pressure around my ears.

Pardon my diversion of the thread, but how can you eq if your using the DAC on a PC? It is my understanding this bypasses the audio digital to analog portion of the PC.

 

Thanks!

It will bypass the eq on your sound card software, but not any eq on whatever media player you are using.

Can anyone suggest anymore cans with bass that dont surpass $179.99 because that's how much I paid for the DT-770.

 

Its because your using them with a GS3, it probably doesn't have enough power to drive them. I tried them on my phone just for kicks and the sounded like crap. Try them in your computer and you'll hear the difference

Loud is one thing, but its not everything. they can be loud and still sound bad because of not enough power. 

 

Alot of things can be said about the DT770 80s, lacking in bass is definitely not one of them. Its either a bad set or the source, Im leaning to the source.

Depends on the song played.

If the 770's don't have enough bass, you're best off getting a sub. It has the most bass I've experienced without being bloated. If you want more bass from it, just eq everything else down, that's essentially what you'll get from any pair that has more than the 770's.

Wrong graph pal, that's the "earphones" / IEMs which typically have such curves. The Beats have 9~10dB bass boost, the bassiest cans have ~15dB boost. DT770 has ~7dB boost. But what's more important to note is also where it's centered. DT770 have very deep bass focus, much deeper, more rumbly but softer sounding bass than Beats while Beats have very punchy & impactful bass due to the strong midbass.

 

The OP should try an XB800. :)

Have they got the black Beyer DT990 pads? The reason I ask is that I changed my worn out pads and put the DT990 ones on. The result was no bass and very edgy sounding. Stupidly, I'd already thrown the 770 pads out so couldn't swap them back.

 

I wonder whether the DT990 pads are a different density because my DT770 now lets external sounds in as well. I've order some real DT770 pads to check for this!!

Relative to the Beats, the DT 770 does lack in bass quantity. That's why you're underwhelmed, but I bet if you burned them in, you'd prefer the bass of the DT 770. And it's as RPGWiZaRD said; the bass emphasis on them is mainly in the sub-bass region. You may want to try the DT 990. The bass emphasis on those is in the mid-bass region. Note that they're open-back.

Download Poweramp to this S3 and increase bass tone, it makes a heck of difference, I believe you can get more than you want with those cans, even without an amp, easily... Beats may have more bass out-of-the-box, but they have less EQ potential, meaning overall they aren't exactly able to produce more of it ... And if you really only care about bass, decrease  mids as well  in EQ tab and you will get subwoofers on your ears. biggrin.gif

DT770 especially can benefit by a boost at 125Hz as that's what they lack, they have plenty down at 50Hz or so though.

post #27 of 38

65Hz and less, this is where real bass lives. L3000.gif

Why do IEMS typically have curves like that?

Bass is aprox 0 - 250Hz range, rest is about taste. :P I bet many people here doesn't even know they enjoy midbass and think it's the subbass when it isn't. And in most bass beats it's both midbass and subbass combined as alone subbass doesn't give the feeling of much impact, especially in headphones. I personally prefer balanced subbass & midbass presence when the bass peak is centered roughly around 80Hz, then you get the best impact.

Well, certainly, you cant get much of a 30Hz, but combined with 60Hz it really gives big earthquake on bassy headphones wink.gif

Boosted 100Hz<  on many (bass capable) headphones gives this muddy shadow of lows, which destroys clarity.
