How is the bass of the Creative Aurvana Live! in your opinion? - Page 2

post #16 of 89

I have put on some Shure pads on mine CAL's. The fitting is not perfect but the sound is extremely good for a headphone in this price range. The bass become much more natural, and that affects the mid's in a positive way. I have them properly amped thou, but I guess the improvement would be there unamped as well. I'm curious what the CAL would sound like with optimal pads!

And how do they sound stock and right out of the box and with a lot of burn in in your opinion?

OK, so is it pointless to pursue a 'neutral' sounding headphones, or are there any examples at the OP's price point?

I think you should try Sony V6,which most of the ppl use for studio monitoring. I have not yet encountered with them though.

I want to buy the CAL!, but there is one thing about them that I don't understand. People are saying they have coloured sound, but how are they coloured? How do you notice it? Also, how is the sub-bass of them?

Here you can find useful information about frequency responses of many headphones.

 

http://www.innerfidelity.com/headphone-data-sheet-downloads

 

or

 

http://www.headphone.com/buildAGraph.php

 

I prefer innerfidelity's data sheets, but the other website has a nice frequency response comparator.

 

Greetings!

I see that they're fairly balanced, only the highs are a bit rolled off. Is this true?

Those headroom graphs are really awesome. A very nice starting point.

 

OP: I recommend the jvc harx 700. I own them, and have now taken the time to burn them in (nearly 100 hours). They are quite neutral overall, with a hint of a bass bump. They are very affordable at under $40. After you burn them in, I think you will like them quite a bit.

How are their details, clarity and instrument separation? Also, which cans did you own before?
