Biggest bass response in ear

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Guys,

I have scoured the internet trying to find the hardest hitting ear bud. I have owned the v mods bass freq and they were the best. They recently broke. No price point, willing to pay for the best. I want the hardest hitting. Figured you guys know the answer. Thanks

the v moda vibe duos are very bass heavy imo. i equate them to it sounding like you have a subwoofer in your ear. wats ur budget

I think the Monster Turbine may fit your needs.

Try the SE846. With the low pass filter the bass response is state of the art in IEMs.

I agree with spook76. The SE846's have a great deep subwoofer bass, unlike any I have ever heard. If you add an amp with bass-boost and EQ the lower frequencies up a couple dB's, you end up with 12 inch subs strapped to your ears....

those are a good choice too, i found them to be heavy though as they are metal

I don't have and I haven't heard the Shure SE846 nor the Sennheiser IE800.

Are you looking for universal fit or custom or either?

Of the universal IEMs that I have, I really like the JVC FX800.  probably more than the AT CKS1000 and JVC FX200.

RedGiant's Ossicle has good bass, IMHO.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't want to sound pompous with money isn't a issue. I utilize ear phones daily. I can justify the price. I am leaning toward the Shures you guys recommended. The only thing I don't like is it a purchase made in blind faith. I would love to sample them prior to such a large purchase. Thanks again. I knew I could depend on this forum.

It is not very bassy. It has a neutral bass response, so like the bass is even with the rest of the sound range.

In addition to the SE846 which emphasizes the sub bass (sub woofer) the JH-16 freq phase should also be considered for mid bass emphasis or the JH Roxanne with the bass boost module.

Yamaha EPH-50 are really bassy, bassiest headphones I've ever owned definitely. They have an extreme V-shaped sound signature. Their bass is far more powerful than Yamaha EPH-100's wich are on the warm side and have great bass and sub bass. I didn't like EPH-50 and I've sold them to a friend of mine (A basshead for sure). He loves them.

 

If you want to give them a try, they are pretty inexpensive and provide powerful bass. (Not great sound quality to my ears)

Update: I bought some cheap ear buds to tide me over till I get something better. I bought the radius bass 2. All hype. The v-moda bass freq destroy theses. You also have to raise the volume to get equal results as well.

This is a temp till I get one of your suggestions.

I am in the same boat.  I am leaning toward buying a pair of 846s but if I do, it will be on blind faith, really.  My impressions about the 846s are based on what everybody else says about them and the problem with that is obvious - everyone's idea of what music should sound like is so different, still, the deluge of feedback for the 846s is overwhelming.  I don't doubt for a minute that they sound fantastic, not at all. My question  is "do they sound the way I want them to?", and, "is the way they sound worth the money to me".  Make no mistake, they are expensive but since I listen to music 4-8 hours a day, I can justify the purchase price....provided they are everything I want them to be.

 

In the case of the 846s, I think the verdict in on them and they have taken their place at the top of the IEM hierarchy.
