I personally believe one needs to put effort into any can Ti make each song sound good. Sure plug and play can work with many but if you listen to the same song over and over and tinker with eq it makes it better IMO

so many on here get a can. Hate it. Return in. Wouldn't it be tragic if THAT can was the ONE. IMAGINE how many people looked the other way on sz cause of Z review. I almost did. Whew! Thank GOD for that extreme bass thread

If anyone can prove to me there's a better headphone in the world world for this song, or loud & deep dancehall in general, let me know..... I don't believe one exists ;)

I totally went into my fancy JVC box, took the sz1k out , and jammed to that.

If anyone on here has a pair of SZ2Ks and is thinking about attending the New York spring meetup this June, then I have a big request: please, please, please bring a pair so I can test them out with my extreme EQ presets in Rockbox! My local hi-fi shop doesn't carry these, so I haven't had a chance to sample them. I can make my M-100s sound absolutely top-notch in terms of both overall sound quality and sub-bass with any type of music, using DiscoProJoe's Rockbox EQ Presets and my Cayin C5.

 

I'm curious to hear what the SZ2Ks can do, and am eager to see how good I can make them sound with my stuff.

 

In the meantime, enjoy the pics below! I found them on this page on Taobao. Maybe she can bring a pair to the meetup.  :D

My old avatar

 

 

 

Look familiar? ;)

 

I am close enough to NYC that I should attend but I don't feel like travelling from Boston to NY when last time I went to NYC, my car (along with an entire street) got "relocated" by a film company who "forgot" to put their signs up saying they had to film there.

 

About 2 days later, 1/4 of which were spent with NYC police, they eventually found my (and all the other) cars scattered a dozen blocks away. I didn't have to pay a dime for parking because of it, which was nice, and the stolen car report was 3/4 finished when one cop on patrol found them... that was a ridiculous vacation

 

So if someone wants to fly me out or pay for my garage space I'll go :rolleyes: 

 

(Edit: PS I don't know what chilly's edit said but something tells me I agree? :D)

I do miss your old avatar, it stuck out. I thought at first it was a camel head or something. It looked distorted. Maybe its my eyes. Maybe its my brain, from what yall mentioning up there. I'm just about to turn 30 and my memory is fuzzy, quite dysfunctional :p, and did is ay confused?

 

This hobby helps!

I have a thing for Japanese woman, and she is just gorgeous lol. I'd absolutely love to be at her station while she shows off her cans. ;) JVC, SZ, don't matter to me, just show thee

post #3670 of 3952
They always seem to pick small heads to try on the massive cans to make them look intimidating. The sz it's heavy as hell lol poor lady

I think she's Chinese, and she looks Chinese. Taobao is the Chinese version of eBay, and the background of those photos she's in has simplified Chinese characters, which are the standard language in mainland China.

 

She's gorgeous from the neck up, but from the neck down, she certainly could gain a few pounds. I have a thing for strong Chinese women!

I've been looking for a set of dedicated bass cannons to offset my more accurate, monitor headphones. I bought a set of JBL Synchros S700s from a guy on here ($80), and they've got decently solid bass with an EQ and the AudioQuest Dragonfly 1.2 that I keep at my desk at work. The JBLs are great headphones with an EQ, and they can definitely shake, especially bassy parts, but I'm still craving more bass.

 

I bought a set of Audio-Technica PRO700MK2s because all the reviews raved about how insane the bass was, but I was disappointed, the JBLs hit much harder (especially with the active EQ mode on), and have much more defined mids as well.

 

Do you guys thing these would be a solid enough upgrade from my JBLs? Mostly listen to metal, so I'm looking for hard hitting bass that still maintains high detail and doesn't muddy out the low-mids like so many "bassy" headphones do. 

 

I'm thinking I might need a better amp for my desk at work as well. Any and all opinions and suggestions are welcome!

Yes they would be and you'll find the 2000's are more dynamic and have better imaging if you listen at louder levels. 

 

Hmm, never heard of those JBL's but how are you amping the PRO700mk2's? If you are running them straight out of the Dragonfly that's why the PRO700 are so disappointing to you. Those bad boys are gonna need an amp and the SZ's even more so. The JVC SZ1000 -might- be okay if you refuse to add an amp to the path but if you're not going to add an amp to the path you won't get the most out of the PRO700 or either SZ. Don't even think about the SZ2000 out of the dragonfly unamped....

You're right, should probably pick up an amp first then and give the PRO700s another chance. At work all I've got is the Dragonfly, but somehow the JBLs hit surprisingly hard with just the Dragonfly and an EQ -- much more solidly than the PRO700s with the same setup.

 

Here are the JBLs: https://www.amazon.com/JBL-Synchros-S700-Over-Ear-Headphones/dp/B00FF9FI26

Heck try amping the JBLs too. For all we know, they might have a spot in the extreme basshead thread - where the pro700s are listed as one of the hardest slammers!

 

I have never seen so much as a mention of these JBLs before so if they have killer bass that's good to know. However I do know everything on the basshead top 10 list is being run through at least 1  very powerful amp. Something like a Cayin c5 should do...
