I don't even think audeze gives satisfying bass if you're looking for something with more than the 560 (maybe lcd-x).  Look for closed cans like TH900 or Z7 etc.

yeaaaa... if you are looking for a bass-boosted flagship, there aren't that many options. bassy flagships would be the ultrasone sig dj, fostex th900, lcd-2 pre-fazor, and lcd-xc. the new z7 appears to be bassy too. note the pm-1/2 are warmer than the he-560, so even that would probably be a better direction for more bass quantity. honestly though for bass-heavy headphones, just sticking with a solid $300ish closed portable would probably have more bass quantity than flagship headphones that are generally tuned for a more neutral-orientated sound signature.

 

the he-560 and he-400i are tuned towards a neutral sound signature.

Could someone explain the baffle issue. If and so this is a issue. Do the newly ordered ones come fixed?

there is no issue. there are some models with plastic and some models with metal. unlikely to have a significant sonic impact.

Try the Yamaha Pro 500. It has a very balanced presentation with a slight bass emphasis. The bass hits hard, is pretty clean with good extension and doesn't affect the mids at all. Soundstage is on par with the HE-400's with good imaging.

Sorry for replying so late, but yes, they should be the same (from what I've read, because I actually don't have any of the older HifiMan headphones).

I would consider the ZMF x Vibro as an option for the option of a bit of bass boost and slam. It does really well in this aspect, and is a very musical, detailed, and most of all enjoyable headphone. It has a bass port you can unplug up to three or close all three which adds and reduces bass

Here's a website with a bunch of test tones to build a response curve:

Try the website and see what your hearing curve comes out to be? Here is mine (-78dB seems to be how quiet my environment really is...):

 

 

So I guess it doesn't have the same spike as the equal-loudness contour after all, but that just shows how sensitive I am to that 8-10KHz region. I can almost hear it as well as 1-1.5K, and I can't hear 400Hz that well at all.

 

Here is mine:

 

 

Surprized by the 30 Khz & 16 Hkz, both -14 and -54 db sounded really louder than my 1 Khz, maybe because I'm young(er)? (25y). On the other hand, I surely couldn't go below at 8 Khz than that compared to 1 Khz.

The only open headphones I would try would be the old HE400 for more bass but honestly you will probably be better off with a pair of $300ish closed headphones w a vshaped sound sig like the ultrasone pro900 or vmoda m100 for more bass quantity. refer to the basshead club for more suggestions but there is really no need to spend more than $300ish on a pair of bassy headphones.

Thanks a lot for the clarification! (the other ones too).

 

I actually would like less bass on the HD-650, I prefer the HD-600 on that.
