Bass heavy over the head Headphone

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,

 

Maybe I'm asking the impossible here but here it goes. These are the main features I want for over the ear headphone:

 

1. In-line control for volume and track, I don't need mic just the volume and track control

2. Bass heavy, I mostly listen to rap so want that booming effect

3. Closed back, prefer if there is no sound leakage

 

I'll be willing to spend up-to $275 if I can get all the feature above. I was looking at crossfade LP but not sure about heavy the bass. If anyone can suggest other closed cans with what I am looking for, it would be really appreciate it.   thanks

I have the M-Audio Q40 and i like the bass on it. According to others though the Ultrasone Pro 900 is bassy as well. Another option is V-Moda m-100, again i havent tried it myself. these headphones have both the quantity an the quality bass. 

 

If you want just bass look into sony xb series...

I would also check out the ATH-M50's (140).

 

I wanted the same thing and they sounded better to me or on Par with the V-Moda 100 (299).  The give is you won't get the inline sound control.

thanks. i will look into M50. I have a couple of xb but they have in-line control that's the problem. I was thinking V-Mod crossfade LP.

i don't know for you but i own a pair of m100 and compared it with my friend's m50 which was much more burned in than mine. the bass is more presence in m100 and the detail is better overall. mid does sound a bit more muddy on my m100 but on vocal-focused songs it is pretty on par with m50

 I think you're right on.  Just not sure that it is enough of a difference to be worth twice the price.

I would suggest the V-Moda M100, they're great for Hip Hop and have minimal sound leakage.. Also the ATH M50s are excellent cans, although they leak a lot more sound (unless you listen to music at 40% volume) 

 

I own a pair of DT 770s, they're not as bass heavy, but they're very 'clean' sounding (with a proper amp).

 

Hope this helps! And remember you can always purchase through Amazon and return them if you're not satisfied.

new suggestion : b&w p7, excellent bass response and better in clarity department compared to m100

I'll throw in another vote for the ATH-M50. Great sound, good tight accurate bass. And at just $150... it's a no brainer. M100s are $300!!! Plus soundprofessionals.com sells them with a detachable cable, and I believe they sell a remote cable for them as well. If not, you could just buy one on eBay.

In case the ATH M50's are on your list, saw this pretty sweet deal on a red pair:

99 bucks

Anyone heard the Audio Technica ATH700PRO MK2? I've heard they have more bass than the M50.
