Need Help! (un-amplified bass)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

First off, my budget is a Maximum of $300. I am looking for some over-the-ear headphones with good bass, however I would not like to hear the person next to me or them hear my music. I am not going to use an amplifier for these, so they need to be good w/out one. I was pointed towards the Logitech UE 6000, which look pretty awesome, but I do not like the active/passive noise cancelling thing. I just need decent noise cancelling from the earpads or something, not a battery-powered treble reducer. when I said noise cancelling I mean good noise cancelling from the physical earmuffs, not an electronic system

VModa M-100

Sony XB-1000

Ultrasone Pro-900 (MSRP $600 though they usually go for around 300)


All of those are pretty bassy and can be driven from a portable source though the Ultrasones are borderline. 


Good luck.

Music preferences? Off the bat, I'm going to recommend the Sony MDR-1R.

I'd go for the Sony MDR-1R, as I loved it for hip-hop when I tried it at the Sony Store.

Just a question why no amp? a portable amp is quite small and it alows you to run a larger variety of headphones on the go. Anyways try the beyerdynamic dt770 pro 80 ohm with a fiio e7 amp, that will run around 300$, if you still dont want an amp try the 32 ohm model.

The original reason for no amp was it is a hassle, but I might change my mind if it makes a big difference

Also I really want good bass so will an amp make that happen?

The dt770's sound decent with great sub bass extension on there own, but with an amp they really shine, enough sub bass for an earthquake. Im listening to zeds dead's dark side dub through them right now with them hooked up to my e7 dac/amp on my computer and there's plenty of bass. An amp will pretty much help any headphone as long as your source and music files are good.
