Headset with alot of bass

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I really feel confused on getting a new headset. I've tried the Sennheiser 598 and Sennheiser 580, both i feel lack ALOT in the bass department. That said, it can be just me who is used to "gamer headsets" so keep that in mind. I read a review saying the Sennheiser 580's are bass heavy which i really dont understand. It has very neutral sound in my opinion. 


So what are my options for a headset with alot of bass. I see that many say that Beyer Dynamic DT770 have alot of bass but im scared thats just another "Audiophile" claim like the 580's beeing bass heavy. If i do some equalizing on the 580's they sound a bit ok on the bass department, but would love more deep bass that kinda vibrates your ear :)

The 770s are definitely bassier than the 580s, so they'd be a good option.  I have a pair of Denon D600s that I really like, and they're definitely not neutral; they're bassier, but in a good way, which doesn't detract from the clarity and detail.  I got them for $250 refurbished here:


They're even cheaper now than when I bought them, and IMO a very good deal at that price.

But consider trying the B&W P7. The bass on both the B&W P5 and P7 is pretty strong.

Played around with the equalizer a bit and the 580's did actually give a good punch. But ill definetely check out the 770's and B&W.

DT-770 or maybe Ultrasone HFI-580 / DJ-1 would probably satisfy. I just want to point out though that you might be used to the bloated sound most gaming headsets sport now, but give some time to a more natural sounding headphone and you might change your mind. I can understand you find the bass lacking in the HD598 though. The DT-770 or Ultrasones are still probably going to have less bass than your average gaming headset, but it will be much cleaner and accurate. You still get a good "punch" though if that's what you're after.

Whatever you do, don't try the AD700! Way too much bass! Anyone who uses that loves bloated bass and non existent treble.

By my estimates it has 25% more bass than the Denon D1100.

I'd highly recommend the B&W P7 if you want a rich and deep bass, that is at the same time not drowning out the rest of the sound spectrum. Very tight and controlled, yet goes very deep when a song asks for it and will stay away when a song doesn't ask for it :)
