Bloated by definition means too much. Yes the bass and overall presentation of the HE6 is the speaker like headphone. But based on definition the HD800 has more of it.
I too love the HE6. But if you have to mKe a choice of definition who here feels the HE 6 has more than the HD800 ?

You ask that question in a HD800 thread? :rolleyes:

 

Bloated bass tends to linger or exaggerate, so it would sound sloppy and without definition or not being controlled -  the opposite of tight.  ie..  Having too much decay when not suppose to.  Neither the HD800 nor the HE6 has this.

As I get your point try this. If you connected the hd800 and HE6 and compared them in a A/B with same song . There would have to be one with more and one with less . So either one is thin or one is think. Pick witch you like it.

Just because one has more than there other - does not make the one that has less thin or the one that has more thick.:cool:

 

Yes,  I've A/B them many, many of times.  I've owned them both for a few a few years now.

Both the HE-6 and HD800 have some of the tightest and thumping bass I've heard out of so-called "bright" headphones. Hands down, they walk over everyone else, IMO. I used to own the HE-6 and I still have the HD800 but I won't discount getting the HE-6 again, only if I have ONE amp to rule them both..

HE-6's have a fuller bass than the HD800's, the LCD's I have heard/owned are even fuller, but I would not call any of them as bloated.

They all have tight and well controlled bass to me, although the LCD's can seem a bit congested in the bass due to their restricted sound stage.

post #10763 of 24360
Ok you guys do not like bloated . Then stringer or speaker. And for the record one that I stronger if with a bass he's very tune becomes bloated. But as most here disagree I am agree with you guys. I am not trying to make any points or observations that we all have not done for ourselves .

I read in a review that, the HD800's bass is "one notey", i have listened to them in the past and i dissagree.

Disagree here as well. More nonsense has been spewed about the HD-800 than any other HP.

Both the HE-6 and HD-800 feature great bass if you power them correctly, and if the recording sampled has quality bass.

The least one-note out there, actually.

This.

 

The HD800 has the most articulated, defined and accurate bass I've heard out of a headphone.  The polar opposite of one note.

Yes, great word. Cant even stand my LCD2 after buying the HD800s. They sound so clouded after hearing the glory of the HD800s. Would love to try out the HE 6 one day when the wallet permits.

This is how I feel about the he-500 after listening to the hd800. Will the he-6 fare better? I'm probably going to sell my he-500 b/c it's not worth putting up with how heavy it is.

Maybe the he-6 is worth it?

Link to the review i mentioned before:
http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/comparing-world-class-headphones-0

I quote:

"Bass Texture - Good texture and extension. Slightly "one note" sounding relative to the planar magnetic cans.

Bass Slam - Dynamics are good on these, but the slightly one-note sound and lack of bass extension has these falling a bit short relative to the planar magnetics"
