Best Ear-gear for Thunderous Bass?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Supppp,

As they title states, I need the best piece of ear gear, whether it be earphones, headphones or whatever WITH the BEST bass. I don't care about ergonomics, aesthetics, extra features or anything else of that sort. Bass is no. 1 on my priority list! One constraint is my budget which will be between $70-$80 USD(let's keep it low guys). I am not an audiophile, but from my current experience with music, in ear earphones are the best bang for your buck when it comes to bass and I have seen some models such as the Klipsch Image S4 and the Sony XBA-C10IP. However, there may be some headphones with better bass capabilities so I would appreciate your help!

I completely disagree with your premise. IEMs do not provide the same level of bass as full-size headphones. Basshead thread are everywhere on head-fi, but here's the primary:

But what do you recommend?

Problem is, can you find XB500s these days for under $80? After they got discontinued the price has gone up over $100 (at least on Amazon).

 

You could look at the XB800?

Unfortunately, both of them are above my price range. However on the BassHead thread, someone recommended me an ath cks77x. What do you think about that?
