Headphones for a bass player - Page 2

post #16 of 28

Am not the most experienced here, but I'd say the mad dog should do bass very good and linear, especially with some EQ. There are probably a lot of other very good choices.

 

There must be other t50rp modders in europe as well. Isn't mayflowerelectronics UK based?

yes, the MD is that good. It is a little bulky but very comfortable. Removable cable but will need a decent amp.

Dt880 and hd600 are open. The shures are bass shy as I remember.
The ultrasone is just not very neutral, nor is the m50.

I think you'd like the Custom One Pro as it has a bass boost function that kind of works, besides being well-built and comfortable enough.

I think we are getting somewhere now.

What about ohm rating? I do not have a specific amplifier to use with them so these will be used with a mark bass combo that has a headphone plug. I also want to use them with my PC.

i think i have cut down from the initial list to these two:

 

SENNHEISER HD-6 MIX
 

BEYERDYNAMIC CUSTOM ONE PRO
 

From the youtube reviews of the custom one pro i would probably really like them but i was not able to find reviews on the hd6 mix anywhere. 

 

what do you know about them?

post #25 of 28

I know nothing about the sennies. Personally, I found the COP decent. It has plenty of bass, though it doesn't dig that low in the bass as I remember and the COP isn't exactly made for monitoring and professional use. It might do you good anyway.

I am sure I will like the custom one pro. But I am asking about the sennheiser because I also like them but they are very recent, I want to buy the best I can. Might open another topic to compare both.

Shure SRH 840 have a warm sounding, they seem to be very good allrounders.

Shrue SRH 940 are pretty neutral. Its rare for closed cans to be that neutral, so thats worth a shot.

Custom One Pro can be a good choice. Easy to drive, build like a tank, Bass slider might also be very helpful, depending if you want more or less bass.

The AKG 2xx series... i personally dont find that attractive. I would more likely try the K550.

Sony MDR1 should also be pretty neutral/natural.

 

Like i said, NOONE would be able to tell you "buy xxxx, thats the best for you and for your price", since noone knows what you will like.

You should better chose 2-4 headphones, and just try them out. The less you can try, the more i would start with the CoP, so with the slider you have pretty much 4 headphones in one, so thats a good start to find out, how much bass you like/want.
