so i originally had the xb500. went to the htf600 for a cheaper alternative. even after burn in, the bass is just ehh. i'm looking for more bass. somewhere around 50 bucks. so not up to q40 level yet. any thoughts on the sony v55 or sony zx600? listen to house, trance, rap but also appreciate good sound quality.
htf600 - need more bass!
i just want more bass than the htf... the htf has maybe 30% of the xb500 bass even though people were saying it has unbelievable bass.. are there any options around 50 dollars that definitely have more bass quantity than the htf?
Had the Takstar HD5500 for a few weeks and was mildly underwhelmed... nice sound but quite the "V curve", lacking in midrange presence I like.
Paired these puppies with a Fiio E07k USB DAC / Portable Amp and their potential truly shines...never had such sub-bass extension and clarity in a pair of cans excepting my 10 year old Ultrasone DJ1s!
Pandemic - Really? I have been sitting on the fence about buying the Takstar 5500. I have the Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro80) and can't believe how good they are with electronic music. I also have the FiiO EO7K. I had heard the clarity was really good with the 5500s with excellent sub-bass but was worried about the mid-range. So you're saying the EO7K helps with that?
Yeah most definitely. Based on what I've read about the Pro80 though you may notice less mid-range in comparison? Those are designed to be more "neutral" flat, while HD5500 are designed to drop a bit of upper midrange and boost the highs (see the sound signature graph here, can't upload the pic directly). Truly an awesome set of cans though.
