I have been on the search for some portable headphones with thumping and vibrating bass for sometime. I recently sent back some 400 dollar Ultrasone Pro 900 and now they are priced at 550 don't i feel stupid, could've copped those on ebay and pocketed the 150 dollars. :D any way I feel like the Pro 900 were good with an amp but the bass wasn't really driving. So I sent the amp back too. Next up the Beyerdynamic custom one pros. The bass seems to blanket the sound on these and they are 16 ohm so they actually have a little bit of power un amped. But just that small amount of bass led to a rattle so back they go. I just feel like I am getting ripped off. I have a pair of dt770 pro 80 ohm and they have almost zero thump or force in the bass. even with an amp they just sound terrible, so maybe the e12 isn't the best amp but I feel like I am awash in the midst of a nightmare. someone give me some subwoofers I can strap to my head!! please!! The weird thing is I am completely satisfied with my 100 dollar razer barracuda 5.1 with dedicated bass driver. they are gaming headphones yes, but I have yet to find any cans that can come close to the thick and thumping bass these headphones give me. only problem with them is they're not portable, and they're not about to work with my macbook. I just feel like I'm making this music and I can't even get a good idea of what my bass is doing. I can Hear it, but I can't feel it. I'm willing to spend the money but I just feel like everything is a crap shoot, u just don't know until you try it. Please don't tell me I need to buy the LCD-XC's to feel my bass. thats the last thing i want to hear. lol.
Thanks in advance, indopler
