JVC HA-S500 or V-Moda Crossafde LP?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I've been looking at some portables recently for working out and jogging. I needed something bassy with rolled off/unfatiguing highs. After some research those are some options:
Crossafde LP
HA S500

Will the jvc's have enough bass for me? (Kind of a bass head)
And more importantly, which will be better in terms of portability and durability.

Any other recommendations will be appreciated.

Note: I also looked into the xb500 since they suit my needs (sound wise) but they're big and bulky therefore not portable.

Never heard the LPs, but the S500s got really good extended highs that is not fatiguing and their sub bass does pretty deep along with a good amount of mid bass that doesn't bleed much into the mids or highs. Nothing on them sounds recessed but they have more emphasis on the lows and highs that's for sure.

 

If you are not on a budget, you should check out the ATH WS99s. A true audiophile basshead can done right without a doubt. The bass is so deep, clean and solid that it can literally rattle the ear cups like this... L3000.gif without affecting the mids or highs. I would say these are a total upgrade to the S500s and then some esp. for the bass quantity.

 

Hope this helps. The S500s should sound much more musical and more balanced that the LPs from what i have read. Those LPs seems to be just a one trick pony, with it's crazy bassy dark sound signature.

Well, the ws99's look sexy. Seriously good looking, im going to look into it further.

I was also recently looking at the V-Moda M80, i know theyre not that bassy, but fron what i read theyre built like tanks and sound awesome. Any thoughts on them?

Thanks

The M-80 is soild, and you should get a bass amp and it will be perfect.

I guess my FiiO E11 will do the job with the Bass Boost adjustments.

Thanks.

Thanks, if I did make a shield design I'd have a hard time deciding between whether to write my name or draw an emblem smily_headphones1.gif

Why not do both, make the emblem now, then order another set later.  However, make sure you use the PSD template for 100% accurate sizing (use GIMP if you don't have PhotoShop).  I made the mistake by just sending them my logo in a jpg and end up looking smaller than I would like.  V80 will look great with their red shields as I did with mine M-100 in shadow.

That's actually a pretty good plan!
