Looking for more bass for work

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I currently run some Senn PX 200 IIi headphones directly off my iPhone for work.  I'm looking for something with a little better overall sound quality, especially deeper bass.  I will note however, that I want neutral bass, just more extension.  I don't have the luxury of an office so two caveats.  1) I don't want anything huge for work.  I don't want to look like an airport employee and 2) I had been eyeing sealed phones due to the potential for sound leakage. 

 

Budget is up to $350 but if I need an amp, I was going to pick up a Schiit Magni, so if an amp will be required, the budget for the phone would fall.

 

I should add that I was looking at the HD 598 but am worried that it is an open can.  I don't need isolation, I'm worried about bugging other people.  Also have looked at Ultrasone and Audiotechnica

UE6000 is great for bass, without drowning everything else out. No sound leakage and they isolate well. They are a nice dark sounding portable headphone and they look good.

 

Also, I tested it with my Lyr and they "woke up". I imagine the effect would be similar with the Magni, as they are easy to drive. My little Zo gives them a real kick in the ass.

Just hook up a subwoofer and let your colleagues rock out with you lol. The KEF M500 has amazing bass extension; in fact it has an almost completely flat frequency response from 20hz right up to 20k. Just don't expect boosted bass. For more a bit more of a midbass hump you can always go for Sennheiser Momentum, Audio-Technica WS99, or V-Moda M-100 for even more bass.
