Increasing bass for W4R

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

Just got a pair of W4R. However, coming from ATH M50, I find the bass lacking in W4R. Is there any ways I can increase the bass? I'm using star tip. The foam tip seems to increase the bass, but for comfort, I'll prefer the star tip, Any advice?

Perhaps EQ or a copper cable?

Getting an amp could solve your problem. Trying finding those with a bass boost circuit.

Yeah, a cheap option is the Fiio E6.

Jds labs c5 or c421 will do the trick

Thanks guys for the suggestion. If I were to get a DAP instead of amp, what will be the suggestion? I read quite abit on the Fiio X3 and Ibasso DX50, but am not sure if it will pair well with W4R. After researching C5, it seems like bass boost is the only solution?

Dx50 is excellent for the price

Are you saying that the only options the c 5 has is the bass boost.

well a dedicated amp with bass boost circuitry IMO would be better than just a dap. 

 

i personally never found any dap to add the ''excitment'' you are talking about. IMO it takes cables and interconnects and amps and dacs and then the w4r REALLY comes alive. and while i know thats not realistic for most people to spend 2500+ on equipment plus iem.....the w4r are completely capable 

 

the w4r is more of a reference in ear monitor. it doesnt do anything wrong, yet doesnt emphasize on any one particular frequency spectrum.

 

you have to also understand it will never be a basshead headphone, not even with a bass boost. i would learn the difference between quality bass and quantity bass....imo the w4r is in the lower side of middle.
