Most bass heavy cans possible?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I want the most bass heavy cans I can find...BUT I want tight, accurate bass...NOT boomy or muddy. I would also like clear highs and warm mids. Any recommendations? I've heard the Sony XB series, and I'm not a fan of the sound so don't recommend those please. Thanks.

Try the Ultrasone Pro 900.

Dont know any other heavy bass headphones besodes these, where Quality is also a point.

Do they need much to push them? I will be listening via my LG G2 phone and my HP laptop with the Beats audio. No amp.

Tbh, i dont really know.. i think i never read anything about them needing a "special strong" amp. I think, they might work well.

As for the Laptop, an external DAC/Amp will ALWAYS be worth it for such expensive headphones. At least something like Fiio E10 i would get for them. Laptops tend to have abit... very low output power, and not sooo good soundchips.

Also check out M-Audio Q40 ....

You can't have accurate bass yet be bass-heavy at the same time.  Planars like LCD2 and HE-400 get the closest to that, but they're still on the accurate side to many bassheads.

Beyerdynamic DT770 are bassy yet accurate. IMHO.

To each-his-own but I owned the DT770/80ohm for a while.  One of the worst headphones I've ever heard.  The bass sounded very boomy and one-notey to me.

 

To the OP...Closed cans are certainly what you should be focusing on.  The best closed cans I've ever spent time with are the Dennon AH-D7000 (sadly no longer in production). The bass on those was very tactile and powerful but still accurate. They were the closest thing I've heard in headphones to a good floor-standing speaker from the perspective of FR (closed always fall short on soundstage).  

 

I've had no experience with them but from all I've read the aforementioned Ultrasones would be on my short list of cans to try to listen to before pulling the trigger.

Audio Technic ATH PRO700 Mk 2. These are bad boys when properly amped. Maybe consider a cheap headphone amp too like a fiio E6.

I had the Pro700, and took them back because they were very uncomfortable. I did't even have time to break them in.

Probably the most bass heavy phones I have in my stash are the Denon AH-D5000's.

Denon D600? Yamaha pro 500? Sony XB920?
