Best Headphones For Dubstep and Trap : Under $165 - Page 49

post #721 of 736
The ws99 with the bass boosted is just... I don't even know how to explain it ! Think of an earthquake and you'll be a little closer biggrin.gif

Heh heh. The bass is much more controlled than the dt770s and the mid bass is greater on the ws99 so there is much more impact.

Don't have enough bass wah???? These things have about the same amount as the dt770 except the don't go into the mids. I said the dt770s have too much bass because the headphones simply aren't capable of pulling it off. I promise you there's enough bass, with more bass than the mdr 1r, and fidelio l1.
bolth of thos dont have a lot of bass lol

+1
I boosted the subbass (+2@200 hz, 0@100 hz, +6@80hz and +12@50hz) and it sounds really amazing with tiesto's elements of life.
Though normally i just have the subbass boosted to+6.

Mkay, so unamped and un-EQ'ed, the WS99 deliver great sound quality and deliver massive bass. Amirite?

post #727 of 736
Yes. Enough for hip hop, dub, etc. No question. Amp it and you get even more bass. This is the only headphone I can actually normally not use eq. I'm usually boosting the bass and highs on other cans but these work nicely.

For rock, I boost the highs.

Mkay, so the WS99's are definitely on my list...

I'd say the Ultrasones or DT770.

Just wondering, have you heard the WS99's?

post #731 of 736

I got a pair of m50s recently, and I make trap (beats, not the edm). I can say they are fantastic; however, I haven't tried the sony's as I am looking for all around flatness with a bass that can still boom, and the m50s get the job done for me.

Everyone here will hate me for this but....I would recommend these. I have a pair because I thought "what the hell, its only $100" (link to them on amazon here) and I was /very/ surprised. Although I will admit the company has issues with quality control (you might get a bust pair and have to send them back and get new ones (but amazon makes this easy)) these things have been great! I am a dubstep guy myself and I also mix occasionally  and these are the absolute best I've heard yet. The bass in them is unbelievable (mainly due to the fact that one of the two speakers in each ear is in a bandpass box) and they aren't "muddy". They reproduce cleanly and sharply but with massive low end power.

 

These aren't conventional audiophile headphones but they are my headphones of choice and I /won't/ be changing any time soon.

I borrowed a friends M50s for about a week and I cant see how anyone wears them for longer than an hour.  To me they were almost as uncomfortable as the Sennheiser HD280s (and those are a torture device).  I -wanted- to take the M50s off after about an hour of listening.  My ears were also wet with sweat.  Sound-wise they were pretty nice though.

The WS99 IMO is superior to the M50 and DT770.

The m50's are extremely comfortable imo, and I have huge ears.
