I just grabbed a newish pair of HD600s for $260 CAD and I have to say, they just lack big time on BASS. AMAZING MIDS and MID-HIGHS....I mean some of the sounds I'm hearing are leaving me awestruck....but the low end is really thin, and I was contemplatig getting AKG 702s for monitoring but thought they would be way too bass thin...but these 600s are bass thin lol. These HD600s will be good for monitoring and mixing imo, but not for listening enjoyment if you are a bBASSHEAD...which I apparently know I am now that I've used these. I actully rad the group consensus on all the forums was that the 600s are good on the bass, I would say they are true to the bass, they arent veiled at all. I have my sound driver on the max POWERFUL setting that kicks thae bass on any speaker or ****ty heaphone, but on the 600s it is sooooooo NOT emphasizing any bass.
With all this being said, I know I will use these cans for mixing at least for the mids , but If I want to listen to TRANCE which is my bag, then I need more BASSSSS.
Please recommend me some cans that sound as awesome as the HDs on the mids and also kick on the bass....with out an amp, I feel like if I had these 600s amped, they would be even awesomer...except only on the mids, the loudness would improve but not the spectrum of the lows.....or maybe they would be more emphasiozed all through the spectrum which would incrase the bass, but not atypically to the rest of the spectrum which is what i want... recommend something please anyone...I'm asking the BASSSheads, not hip hop bass or DNB bass ne essarily, but I need a good full thudding kick drum bass and these 600s DO NOT PROVIDE THAT.
