Headphones with THE biggest bass - Page 2

Thread Starter 

After reading what few reviews there are on them, I am seriously considering the AKG K267 by Tiesto. If I do end up getting them, I will be sure to post impressions in this thread.

If I were you I'd get the dt770 with a zo2. I actually plan on doing that soon.

yeah, but most people say that they are seriously uncomfortable, which was the main gripe I had with my M80s

If you're looking for big bass, these will not satisfy you whatsoever. They're actually somewhat thin when it comes to bass unless you put them up on the highest setting.

If it's possible, try and audition the JVC HP-DX1000s.

Best bass I've heard from any headphones. Ever.

If you really do "Luv Your BASS" then I'd go with the Q40 or the Vmoda M-100. I have the Q40 here myself and it's got GOBS of Bass, but it's kind of "in your head" and the highs are rolled off a bit. The Vmoda is supposed to be a deeper better sounding Q40. The Signature DJ is *probably* the ultimate audiophile basshead 'phone, but you pay for it. wink.gif

 For what it's worth, I had the AKG K167s and the bass/mid-bass on it was so weak I returned them after about 3 days. I don't know if the K267s are a lot different, but I don't think they are. 

 

Don't do it. I wish I had bought an ATH-M50 or a HFI-580 instead. If bass is what you want, I would keep away from the Tiesto cans.

Those do look promising, but $850 is waaaay more than I'm willing to spend

Yeah, the Signature DJ are probably going to be the result of a summer teaching swim lessons at the Y. Until then, I'm thinking between the lines of M100 and XB1000

You can replace the pads with M50 pads (They are either $5 or $10 each) Or Beyerdynamic DT250 pads. I think it was the "Battle of the Entry-Level Rivals" thread where Crinacle did it succesfully. Also reducing the clamping force is easy, I stretched my 580's out over a square tissue box (long way) overnight and it helped a ton.

"Take two subwoofers straight to the head"

It's towards the bottom of the OP.

For what it's worth, before I lost my mind and ordered the Signature DJ, I was all set to buy the M-100s. I think bang for the buck it's pretty hard to beat. I haven't heard them yet myself, but if it really is a more refined Q40 then it's probably pretty darn good. Try asking around in the "Basshead Thread" too. Those guys are really into it there and they might be able to outline the differences between the XB1000s and M100s for you.

On second thought, I might just keep the M80s until I have the cash for the Ultrasone Signature DJ and a decent portable amp (because there's no way that a FiiO E6 out of an iPhone 5 playing 320kbs MP3s will do justice to $1200 cans)

Happily, they aren't quite that expensive. You are probably looking at the Signature Pros. The Signature DJ's cost 300 bucks less and have larger drivers for improved Bass response. I paid $999.00 at BH Photo.

Yeah, I was looking at the SDJ on amazon, where they cost $1184. BH seems to have a better deal for them at just under a grand. Btw, any portable amp recommendations for this headphone?
