What's the big deal?
That has to be on some folks mind.
I chose 4 cans that crippled under my default settings to show what the big deal is for me.
That red box is an area where these and virtually all drivers lost control. It is a ridiculous slope but it is what I am using.
This is not the SPL/V chart it's just the drivers freq response slope.
The Mach3Bass is on +8 (as is the BBE...+8)
The eq sliders are flat. The Mach3bass is pushing the curve but I am not manually. That is flat
This signal heads to the Fiio e12 and it's beautiful bass switch
The e12 is an amazingly priced little piece of work. I hated a bass "switch" but they ******* NAILED it.
On every can...every single one. The red box is the approximate area of distortion/failure/audible anomaly occurred.
One my second listen I realized the Pro 900 wasn't distorting as much as refusing to continue. It does not respond to ridiculous instructions.
It hits hard in the late sub early mids but won't go as low. The Th900 displayed a wobble and it was shut down quick. I'm not paying for the abuse of a beautiful can.
I love these because that bump which is an approximation is the edge of listening. I suffer bouts of zzzzzmmmmmm's for a while after more than 20 minutes of listening to bass that loud.
This is what no other cans do and why should they? Oh..I dunno?...cuz they claim to be Bass cans?
I'm coming into the chart 10-20 Hz highly elevated and I get rumble and low bass nausea. The sub 20Hz isn't audible but the energy being sent to the drivers is still going until they respond no more. Your ears lose touch with the note before the driver does. You can feel that.
I might touch the eq someday and see if I can get these to play nice with other genre'..I see no reason they can't but many why they should.
You need to change the cups. It's total ********. JVC has no excuse to put a grill on your ******* earlobe. I think gelocks would have heard a different signature with a cup change and I respect his knowledge a lot but why should anyone have to change anything? I hated the Q40 for the ******* cord and now I'm altering this cans default design. It's ******** but it is what it is.
A ******* cannon.
If I toned down the Mach3Bass on some cans they would be better but I thought I shouldn't have to. Eventually I didn't. I found these by accident. I never saw the thread about these on here and was never told...I'm a basshead to the core...I was never told to try these
