JVC vs Monster Ncredible N-Pulse... Unamped... Monster is surprising me! Next week is going to be great! wink.gif


P.S. I find bass overall even more powerful than the JVCs!

I purchased the Monster Credible N-Pulse headphones. They pound pretty hard! The Sony MA 900 headphones I have start to distort at about 80% volume level when listening to certain hip-hop/rap songs without touching the EQ. No issue's pushing the Monster's to max volume. I'm using the Creative ZXR to push my cans.

 

I'm curious as to how the JVC HA-SZ2000 fair vs the Monster Ncredible N-Pulse. My JVC HX900's were great even though the mids and highs weren't of the greatest quality. Did the job though.

^ Makes one wonder how loud some ppl listen really, with my Q40 I think ZxR in low gain got very loud already at like 35% volume already. O_o

I usually turn the volume knob to about 50-60 percent max. I was only testing the headphones to see when they would give in. During games, I usually have the knob turned to about 30-40 percent.

Did a quick comparison between the sz2000 and the hifiman he-500, and what I found is that instrument seperation is better on the he-500, the he-500 has an overall more neutral presentation compared to the warm sound of the sz2000, you're getting more micro details from the he-500 and it has less bass than the sz2000. The easiest way to describe the difference between the two is that the he-500's are like some very correct stand-mounted "hifi" speakers with 6,5" drivers, while the sz2000's are some big vintage floorstanding speakers with 12" drivers who're all about giving a warm comfortable sound.

 

The only complaint I have about the sz2000 is that the pads should have been bigger.

Search for btg audio on Google, they can replace the cable on any headphones/earphones.

wth the monster ncredible npulse has more bass than these jvc sz1000's what a joke I thought these were the ultimate bass head headphone I was going to buy these but might just by the monsters instead now.

Just because it has more bass doesn't necessarily mean its a better bass head headphone....

Source? I've yet to see any comments on SZ1000 besides a japanese site so would be welcomed ;)

The JVC sz2000 isn't, in my opinion, a "basshead" headphone. It has great bass, but it just plays with authority rather than the typical bloated BOOM-BOOM-BOOM bass you get in sony's xb-series or the v-moda m-100. If it's just bass quantity you're after, you're better off with the m-100. If you value sound quality, listen to a wide variety of music and want something that plays it with warmth and authority - you should take a look at the sz2000.

 

Personally I'm happy the JVC isn't another one trick bass pony. I enjoy my m100 when I'm in a party sort of mood and just want to play loud with some trance/dubstep/rap, but for everything else I rather put on the sz2000.

As you mention thenorwegian, these are much clearer and smoother sounding after burnin.

 

My pair has had about 300 hours of burnin with the drivers being pounded and it sings very cleanly and openly with a huge soundstage for a closed can.

 

A tweak of the bass boost/EQ though can still bring the beast out if you please biggrin.gif

It's better to have a neutral-ish headphone with great sound quality and non-distorting bass, because you can then use EQ to turn it into a bass monster, or anything else, if you wish. If you have a bass monster with mediocre sound quality, you have a mediocre headphone no matter what you do with it.

Trust me a neutral headphone won't get me the bass I crave with any EQing. I crave like 7dB minimum boosted bass and then further boosting with ZO's amp to get satisfied (this works better than headphone with 15dB bass boost + no ZO from my experiences).

What contour level do you have your ZO at? I guess I'm not as much of a basshead as you are... for me 8-10db total is enough for outdoor/commuting use, and for normal listening in quiet environments (i.e. indoors) I only need a small boost, maybe 5-6db.
