just to get an idea of your tastes. What headphone that you have heard or own has the ideal amount of bass for you. I see that you have the d5k and the ue6000's both of which have large amounts of bass. Does this hp have more than the d5k?
You also just mentioned bass quantity, what about quality?
I've owned quite few headphones but my favorites would be planars such as the LCD 2.2 and HE-500. I'm really enjoying the old Denon line though. The CAL!2 actually has more bass than the D5k, which is surprising to me. Quality wise, the D5K's bass is more controlled and refined. The CAL!2's sound way too thick and boomy in comparison. I found that they both had similar extension in regards to the bass. I didn't think it was fair to compare the two though, given the price of each.
I've been actively comparing them with the UE6000's, they can be had for about $80-$120'ish nowadays. IMO the UE6000's sounded more balanced but also a little dark in passive mode. The bass is slightly emphasized but has nowhere near the amount of bass the CAL!2 has. There's just so much that the UE6000's are better at, especially the price. $99.99 new!
It's not a bad headphone though, it's just not my cup of tea.
