Best Bass Headphones for under 200$ - Page 2

post #16 of 28
Bass is heavily reliant on acoustic properties and "Seal" of the headphone. This is one of the big reasons the Sony headphones have big, huge pads.

Taking "looks" into account.. for a good, bassy headphone.... it's honestly extremely hard to think of a good one for less than $200...
The V-Moda M100s sound like what you would want.. but cost more than what you're willing to spend.

IEMS would honestly be best.... Monster Turbine Pro Coppers would fit all your requirements... except for being IEMs.
Decent mids and highs, amazing bass, good looks, extremely efficient and works with iphone directly, and under $200.

Sony MDR-XB500 has everything except looks... Lol

But monster turbine pro coppers will sound much better than the XB500s and still have amazing bass.

+1. You get all of my yes. 

   The bass on these things is visceral. Powerful, punchy, booming, and it isn't muddy. This is an IEM that is worth recommending. But with a budget like yours? Look away unless you plan to buy used.

Thanks for the tip! The only reason I don't want IEM's is because I usually lose them LOL... But I'll check em out and decide if I either want to buy the XB500's or the IEM's...

Understandable. Lol
The Turbines come with a very nice pouch, though. So that might help. And their shiny-ness makes you want to take better care of them....
At least that's how it is with me.

Another headphone you may want to check out is the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro.  I have a pair and really enjoy them.  I haven't compared them head to head with any other headphones except my Klipsch Image One's.  I am sure there are other headphones out there with better soundstage, imaging, mid-range, highs, or "accurate" bass, but they are enjoyable for my tastes.  I am looking to compliment them with a more audiophile style headphone, but I really enjoy the full bass sound.

 

My 2 cents :)

Do you know any EQ app for the iPhone that can Bass Boost all the sounds(Not just the Music App)? And also do you know any Equalizers that are small and portable, since that would probably produce more bass?

All EQ apps have to play music from them that I know of

I'd go with the Z02 if bass is really important or a Sony player like I said, and I don't like that the E06 wont do USB audio. The E06 (I own) has 2 bass boost, a little boost and holy mid and high reducing muddy mess. Something like the the E07k or the E17 have 5 way up or down bass and treble boost's but they get a little muddy on the 4 and 5 setting's but better than the E06. For you though I think the Z02 would be the best it is made to boost bass.

If bought from a authorized retailer they have a free replacement one time if you lost them

Not to be a negative Nancy but I didn't really like the XB500's my friend got a pair and at higher volumes they seemed to distort and they were muddy sounding, yes they had a lot of bass but I would prefer impactful slightly one noted bass over the XB500's super deep boomy bass and extremely recessed mid's and high's. I'd go for the Pro700 MKII, M100/LP2 or IEM's.
