Headphones for extreme Bass (Dubstep,Electro)

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hello

I'm looking for some top-tier bass headphones. And by this i mean one's with extreme bass, kind of banging bass. Something that can make my head shake. Currently I'm using gaming AKG GHS-1, i find the bass quite good, but still not enough. 

Which headphones would you recommend me? Also price should not exceed 500$. Also I prefer some lighter headphones, that can be used outside home ^^. Also gonna be using Digizoid ZO2 amp.

So close. I would've said PRO900, but then you'd have to buy second hand.

Those are professional ones. What about non-professional? Sennheiser doesn't come up with anything? Or maybe AKG? I'l check if there is a store anywhere near to listen to those Ultrasone, and I'm not sure if second hand will sound as good as new ones :P.

If you truely want head shaking bass, get a speaker system, a headphone can only be so bassy compared to a good speaker system. Headphones usually make you hear the bass more then feel it.

You should go check out the basshead forum, anyways look into beyerdynamic dt770 pro 80's, Hifiman He 400, Denon D2k (discontinued so you might have to look around) But really go ask on the basshead forum in the members lounge you will probably get your best answer there.

Thanks guys for your help.

I' think I'll try beyerdynamic dt770 pro 80's PRO900. But what about dt 770 pro 250? Are they any different? Considering bass of course.

 

 

And what with the cheaper headphones? Also with amazing bass. Sony MDR-XB600-40mm, are they good? Or any AKGs  or Sennheisers? (I prefer those with good design ^^)

The DT770 250ohm are slightly more neutral than the 80ohm version, not to mention, harder to drive. They aren't exactly portable, either.

The Sony XB series has some pretty crazy bass but, IMO, this is the only thing they do well.

The most powerfull loud bass I ever heard were on the. Dr.Dre specific model and i forgot the model now but they had such powerful bass output from iPhone with very loud volume levels. V-Moda M80 has tight punchy dynamic bass and it suits almost all genres but great with eclectronic dubstep genres music and overall improve with AMPs help, with ZO2 it will sound powerful bass monster. The other headphones like Pro900, Denon D600 are pretty good for bassheads.

The most bass heavy headphones in my collection are

v. moda M80

Ultrsone HFI780

M Audio M40

 

these are in order, but I would think you would have any issues with any of the 3.  they all have more bass that my XB700

 

you did not ask, but I find a portable amp with a line out used with my ipod keeps the bass tight and clear.  Without the amp the bass gets muddy.

The 80 ohm model of the dt770's is known to be the bassiest.

Why second hand for the Pro 900? A new one is far under his budget. He could get a pretty good portable amp with it and still be under budget.

Hmm that crossfade m80 have a very nice design. But they are hard to find in my country. 

I'll check dt770 80's for sure ( My friend has 250's and i found they didn't have enough bass, even less than my akg, so i was wondering if 80's are like that).

And those Ultrasone HI780 i find at quite resonable price, they are cheaper than Pro 900, comparably to sonys, so ill check them for sure. 

 

So to sum up I'll be trying:

Ultrasone HI780

Beyerdynamic dt770 80's

(If i find) crossfade m80

Sony XB600

 

What from these three are best form your experience?

I've got M-Audio Q-40's, Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro LE32ohm, Sony XB700's and Sony XB500's as my top 4 basshead phones.

 

Q-40's are my favorite.  Slight mod is a length of 1/2" rope under the stock ear cushion. 

 

These are all driven the same way - E-11 from a LOD connector from iPhone 4 or 5, then into ZO set on high gain with highest red contour.

 

You WILL love the bass with this setup if you are after thumping bass.  Any of those phones I have do it really well with my amps.

Thats what i think about Beyer Dynamic headphones, theybare not that bassy and M80, Pro900 are much bassier than DT770. They willbe realy bassheavy withbZO2 and Pro900 has nice feature of surround soujnd and you may like better because it spread soundstage out of head.
