Overwhelming bass headphones?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

Hey,

I'm looking for some headphones that have rattling bass. I currently own the sony mdr-xb500's, and I would like to kno if there are anymore headphones that have more vibrating bass. I want vibrating, punchy strong bass that rattle and shake the headphones.

Visceral bass simply does not exist in headphones. If you want bass vibrations get a 2.1 speaker setup

I think those you have are already one of the most "bassiest" out there so... if you want something that delivers more... ermm...

You could add an EQ if you want more bass. But the XB500's don't have very quality sound. You might take a look at the Ultrasone Pro 900's. They are remarkably clear and detailed for being basshead headphones. They handle the bass really well with respect to texturing and tightness, so you may find that you're more drawn to its bass quality than the XB500's bass quantity.

The XB500's do rattle, with some heavy EQing you can make em fall off your head!
Or do the Sennheiser HD439 with the bass mod http://www.head-fi.org/t/646251/sennheiser-hd-428-hd-428s-modding-guide-january-2013/0_50

If you can, demo the skullcandy crushers. They are quite literally what you are looking for.

They aren't the best bass headphones, but they'll make you feel like your head is pressed up against the speaker in a club.

They don't sound bad either for the price.

"Good"? Not so much. Decent, yes. They aren't wowing for the price point. Really if you are getting these its because of the vibrating bass effect. The bass actually lacks a bit without that, but on the plus side, that minimizes amount the other frequency ranges will be compromised. The midrange and highs do suffer slightly when the vibration feature is used, but not as badly as I'd have thought.
