Yes. They can.

 

My $300 system can produce more bone-rattling bass than my $1400 IEM setup or $700 headphone setup.

 

The Pyle amp is the weakest point in my chain, if you get a better amp with bass adjusting knob, you'll be even better off.

The artist mixes the music to his/her tastes on what they think is the best, so naturally, the best headphone is one with flat response to recreate the mix perfectly. You're looking for extremely exaggerated bass which THE ARTIST SIMPLY DIDN'T INTEND ON EXISTING. You're distorting the music, mutilating it.

 

The urbeats = old ibeats. I had them. I loved them at first. Moved up the chain because others are simply better. You can look at my profile for everything I once had.

 

Once again, the M100 DOES NOT HAVE RECESSED BASS. They are slightly boosted, so you're actually getting more bass than what the artist intends you to hear. I think you have problem with artists not adding enough bass to their songs, and not what headphones you are using.

 

No offense, you have quite poor judgement of music. It's the lyrics, the melody, the progression, and the dynamics that matter. Not just BOOM BOOM BOOM BASS BASS BASS.

 

This stuff drives me crazy. Music is subjective. Just because the artist intended it to be balanced in a given way doesn't mean we're obligated to listen to it that way. It also depends on what you listen to. 

 

The M100s have boosted bass. It's not as crazy as some headphones (Monster NTunes, Sony X05/X10), but it's boosted, and it's GOOD bass thanks to the dual diaphragm drivers. But to suggest that someone is "wrong" for wanting to color the music one way or another is basically claiming that every single music producer is flawless. That no one has EVER produced an album badly EVER.

 

Are you willing to say that? That every album ever created was perfectly executed from a production standpoint? That you have never heard an album in your entire life that was produced badly, or produced in a way you didn't like?

 

To answer the question: yes, the e11 will work, and it will work VERY well. If you want more bass, click the switch to level 1 and enjoy.

Thank you for your support in my music preference. I am borrowing my friend's ZO2 amp to see if I like it. If not, the E11 is my next choice.

Tell us what you think of it. I have the e11 but I have a feeling the ZO series is better.

I definitely will!

I can pretty much guaranty that, unless they have an equalizer adjustment, those amps will not increase the bass from your headphones at all. Let me know if that turns out to be right.

Might wanna look into what the e11 and ZO2 are, LOL.

the z02 has a bass boost, so that's just playing with the equalizer settings. I don't think the e11 has a bass boost or equalizer adjustment though. I don't think it will make a difference. let me know how it turns out.

Leave this thread.

Edit: the zo2 IS a bass booster with an amp added in as an afterthought. The e11 has two levels of bass boost available.

No offense, I'd expect someone with nice gear like you to be at least somewhat knowledgeable in the most popular entry level amps out there, or be competent enough to do a Google search.

you've got a good point, but I still believe op is taking it too far.

Calm down Mr. Chow you're angry at everyone in this thread. My statement was based on the fact that I have tried amps and they do nothing but boost the volume or act as an equalizer boosting some frequencies at the expense of others. They're scams unless you have an unusually weak headphone jack or you've lost hearing (in which case they simply act as essentially a hearing aid). From a sound science perspective, you can just download an equalizer app, boost the 60hz setting up 15 db, leave the 230 hz setting alone, move the other  mid/high frequencies down around 10 db (play with it) and turn up the volume to compensate and you'll get basically the same thing.
 
But he would be better off just buying a more bassy headphone in the first place, like beats. Your speakers/headphones are more important than an equalizer. That's why people buy subwoofers rather than use bass boosts/equalizers to "turn" their regular speakers into a subwoofer.

Don't worry about the bass vs non bass war, your probass side won that (in terms of sales and dollars I mean)

See, you're all saying "just get beats". No, I don't want beats. They break SUPER easily. Meaning I either have to pay full price ($300) for a pair of cans only worth $150, or find them online for $150 at the risk that they'll break in a month. I had a friend who broke 6 pairs in a year. Also, the sound quality is garbage. And they're made of the cheapest plastic you can find. I don't want beats. I like the V-MODA's, I just want a little more bass. Hopefully this ZO2 solves the problem. I guess we'll see. Worst case scenario, I have to return the V-MODA's and get something along the Sony XB line. I have a 60 day test run with the V-MODA's because I bought them from their actual website. Considering I ordered them a week ago, I still have about 7 weeks left.

I thought beats made a new version that was more durable and that it was also powered and had noise cancellation or something. Anyway check them all out then write reviews of the products on headfi.

They did. The beats pro. Unfortunately, the pros have much less bass than their other models, with the same ol' beats quality mids and highs (AKA garbage). So They'd be worse than what I have now.
