flat(ish) headphones with good sub/bass??? suggestions? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

I actually liked the m-100's sound, but in a similar way to liking Bose sound... I don't want to live there!  but i can find it enjoyable.  I do looooooove bass!  ...but like i said, I'm hoping for something similar to sitting in the studio, listening back through monitors (with the sub on) -

 

thievesarmy, can you give me any kinda feedback on the bass response on the 545's?

Anyways I think the dt770 would work for you although its kinda bright. Also the k550 but it may not be bassy enough for you.

well I'm not a pro or the most experienced, but I was pretty impressed w/ the bass when I first got them. I also recently got the X1's which have fantastic bass, and I'd say the K545's are close to those. I listened to the frequency response samples on http://www.audiocheck.net/soundtests_headphones.php with them and was VERY impressed w/ the bass test, and that was straight out of a MBP with no external DAC or Amp. Overall I REALLY dig them - they were originally a gift for my gf, but she didn't like the fit w/ her glasses. Was gonna send them back until I listened to them - they were too good to return.

thanks again for all the responses.  I really appreciate the help!

 

...so I recently ended up getting the Momentums - they sound great, they look cool, they're light weight, BUT - as many others have stated, they get really uncomfortable due to the small cups.  something about it hurts my right ear within an hour of wearing.  really, really unfortunate since otherwise, they are super comfortable!  the leather on the cups with the memory foam feels great and they are fairly light.  they have the potential to be the kind of headphones you forget you are wearing, but with a serious flaw on the small cups.  ...also, they don't fold in any way at all.  I recently flew with them and had to keep them around my neck since I didn't feel good about putting them in my backpack.  

 

...so then I stumbled upon a pair of Bowers and Wilkins P7's for a good price (used) - great looking, seriously well built, classy, BUT - a little "clampy" and somewhat heavy.  not as comfortable as I'd like, but no specific issue like on the Momentums -maybe a keeper, but I'm not so sure yet.  

 

both sound fantastic.  Maybe the P7's are a little better to my taste.  good bass, great sound stage - aside from the comfort, I had a few moments (with both) in which I forgot I was listening through headphones and not my monitors WITH the subwoofer on.  that's a great sign.  

 

I ruled out the 545's since they don't seem too portable and I've read that they lack bass a bit.  I'd still like to try them, but I can't seem to find a place to do so.

 

...anyhow, my search (somewhat) continues....
