Yeah I'm a total noob to "higher performance" headphones and this forum. But I am in love with everything bass. Before I bought these M-Audio Q40s I did a ton of research on them, but that doesnt make me any less of a noob in my knowledge of how to use them.
Mainly I want -massive- bass production from these things. Just for a bit of backround, I started my career in headphones with a purchase of some MDR-XB500s at best buy (awesome, but i never really pushed their limits like I'm interested in here). They recently broke under extended waranty so I was able to put that cash towards this pair! I would have picked up more XB500s, but you know... discontinued and all that.
Anyways, I listen to quite a bit of dubstep right now and the ear massage makes it that much more enjoyable. I'm using Voodoo sound on my nexus s along with PowerAmp to equalize.
This is probably the noobest question of all time, but what causes the static with high db bass? Is it a lack of power to the... er... cans? Poor track quality? Phone hardware or headphone hardware limits? And most importantly, can I get rid of the static and really maximize the bass output on these headphones? Or is the point where i hear static the limit of the Q40s?
Thanks for your patience with my probably stupid questions! And I did try to search for this stuff before starting a thread, but I really had no idea what to call this static so I didnt really find anything relevant.
