Get the Cayin C5 or the Fiio E12. The E10/E17 dont really cut it.

OK but would a schiit magni 2 would be an upgrade over the fiio e12 or cayin c5

You won't get the bass boost switch, so you'll have to figure out how to get more EQ. It's got plenty of power at least.

Does anyone have cayin c5 FR curves / ranges for bass boost?

I was wondering if the oppo ha-2 would be a good option for this?

Give you a bump:)

 

I had a brief demo with it but it seemed less powerful than the e18 which is just barely enough to slam the SZ.

My experience was brief though so maybe another owner can help you.

so what would be your picks then?

Fiio e18 has a bit more power but lower quality DAC.

iDSD micro is powerful and great DAC(s) but big

Chord Mojo is powerful excellent DAC but expensive

 

Depends on what you want and need

Good song for infra bass and vocals 

 

Don't hesitate to press play and discover :)

Thank you all for a wonderful thread. And especially to hawaiibadboy who seems to be very active here. 

Living in Denmark, it has been irritatingly difficult to find any of all the things you recommend in this thread. 

So last night i finally decided to order the HA-SZ2000 headphones from Japan (Ebay) and a MODI 2 Uber from the schiit-website.

 

I was not looking for a mobile AMP, and the modi 2 uber sounded like it could do the job.

Since i don't understand ANY of the technical jargon in here, im not sure if its a little overkill with that modi 2 uber, but i was afraid to buy anything "smaller", in case it would not be good enough for the headphones.

 

After I had used all my money on those two items, i realized i might still need a DAC (im only gonna be listening through my desktop PC).

I also realized that i actually already have what i think is a DAC : Sound Blaster X-FI HD.

 

But is that worth anything? or is too lousy for those bass-headphones?

 

I can't hear the difference between 64 bit and lossless on my Sennheisser HD 555 headphones, so it might not be relevant at all.

My goal is to blow my head off with a lot of bass.

Somebody around here used a schiit and an SZ. Maybe they will give an opinion.

 

HM5 pads might be a good idea and 55x if you just like bass,Hip Hop music

Hi guys, first post here.

 

I've been watching this thread for a little while and finally decided to jump on a pair of sz2000s on eBay. I bought a C5 to accompany it as well as a pair of HM5 pads to complete the setup. I'm using the cans with the C5's bass boost switch on and a basic bass iTunes equalizer right now andddddd...

 

I'm a little underwhelmed.

 

My most recent headphones were a pair of Sony XB500s (a solid pair of headphones, but I'm looking for more bass) and I've also got a home setup consisting of two Rokit 5s and a Polk PSW10 sub. I wouldn't consider myself an audiophile, but I do enjoy bass-heavy setups.

 

I catch a good amount of bass on the sz2000s when I crank the volume, but I'd rather keep the overall volume down while maximizing my bass as much as possible (which I haven't figured out how to do). I have to really put the volume up there to get a nice thump going.

 

Any advice/suggestions? Am I doing something wrong?

 

Thanks in advance!

Cut eq to the floor and raise the sub bass only.

 

This will just quiet the original sound sig and give headroom for bass without ripping your ears off

Are you talking iPhone? Have a look at Neutron MP. This versatile music player includes a 10 band parametric EQ, fully configurable.Easy to achieve the bass bosst that you want.

It could be your source. I have the same problem when I use my pc paired with the c5.

I also see this when paired with my phone and the volume is too high. I keep the volume on my phone at 50%. The main advantage is you can get the amp above the level where there's an imbalance, and secondly it feels like there's a lot more power behind the bass when the cayin is above 4 on the volume dial. (Disclaimer: it could be placebo but that's what my ears hear/feel)
