I am very happy with how these sound. An improvement overall from the AKG181s I was using. Very clean sound, proper bass, and clean mids. From the headphone hunt I've began last year, I am happy with these. I'll be keeping these for a long time.

just curious eugguy, have you tried the beats pro or something along those lines? and what do you think about them?

 

it's funny because you keep saying not enough bass for all these headphones that are supposed to be bass-heavy, and everyone always says the beats has way too much bass... so by that logic, that should be a match made in heaven!! =)

I tested them at bestbuy a while ago. I'm glad you like the beats, but not my flavor boy.. I like good quality sound and don't have 15 year old ears.

The s500s have beat out all the other headphones I've tried so far.

lol love your condescending tone. very cute.

 

i don't think there's anything wrong w/ the beats. they are just extremely bass heavy & very expensive for the build/sound quality. and from the way you were describing what you wanted, it sounded like something you would enjoy.

 

i just found it really funny that you spent the whole thread saying everyone's bass-heavy headphones don't have enough bass, and end up getting a random cheap (but good value) headphones that aren't really bass-oriented headphones. just goes to show everyone does hear differently I guess.

 

glad you found your perfect pair!! :)

lol... It seems to me a lot of times audiophile scene gets really silly and overly judgemental. The fact is that everyone hears differently & wants different things, so it makes sense that people are looking for different things. I feel like it would be much nicer community if people were more focused on finding the sound that you enjoy, rather than bashing/hating on things you don't like.

 
Considering how much money some people throw down for very subtle slight changes in sound signature, I don't think that complaining about over-priced really seems to make sense in the audiophile community unless the OP mentions a budget. Saying there are better options for the money makes sense, but surprisingly OP didn't appreciate the sound quality of the much high-ender basshead headphones that were suggested. Complaining about too much bass for the Beats makes sense, but this guy said everything he tried didn't have enough bass. Hence, the suggestion lol.
 
If you are trying to emulate really boomy, club-like bass, I personally don't think the headphones he picked is a very good choice, but I guess that is what makes things interesting. Of course, there's no reason for me to call him an idiot, just because he hears differently and doesn't appreciate the same sound signature/quality that other people do.

hahaha... don't be meanie! throwing out random insults/assumptions to people you've never met is not very nice.

 

I guess it's hard to get a sense of tone on the internet, but I didn't mean my comments as an insult. I was noting that it is SILLY that people would get angry & insult other people based on their headphone suggestions/preferences. It is actually kinda "cute" that you got offended by my comments, since it shows that you kinda care about what I said :) heh. (and helped me illustrated my point lol)

 

So, I am sorry if I offended you by suggesting the Beats or when I noted that your final headphone pick aren't really considered very bassy or "flagship/high-end SQ" by most people. Don't worry, your headphone choice does not reflect upon your personality (which I am sure is much nicer in reallife b/c the internet brings out the troll in all of us lol) or your "audiophileness" or whatever. It just legit goes to show that everyone has different ears & different sound signature preferences.

 

I am just glad you were able to try all those different headphones & finally find your ideal sound! :) that is the audiophile dream.

 

 

...Just one tiny suggestion: I hope that in the future, you do not jump into resorting to personal attacks or insults when someone disagrees with you. It only reflects badly on yourself...

Well the JVCs still pack entry lvl/medium basshead quantities, about 7dB bass boost measured in the FR graphs which is more than M50 or about the same/slightly more than a DT770 Pro (a lot more midbass, slightly less subbass). It's also a very good headphone for the price and may offer something worth several times more the cost in terms of having at least this kind of bass quantity, in fact there probably doesn't exist anything better in terms of at least 7dB+ bass and better SQ for this price.
