It's probably because he's banned from this thread because of his activities/behavior from the basshead thread. 

 

I thought he was done with head-fi when his BFF got banned?

So is this just "basshead" or "audiophile basshead"? The two feel different. If it's just basshead stuff, lemme put a post I had in the other one here:

 

********

I gave the Skullcandy Crushers a shot.

In a word: NOPE

In more words: I cannot believe this product exists. To my ears, there's a pipeline when it comes to judging the bassiness of a headphone. First is depth, then power, then quality. If it can't hit the low notes, it doesn't matter how great it sounds or how loud it gets. If it sounds weak, quality is pointless. So usually when testing a bass headphone, I pull up Gucci Mane - Traphouse 3. It has a huge, incredibly low bassline, and tells me right off the bat if it gets low and loud, then I can use others to judge quality.

So I fire it up on the Crushers, ready to have my head shook. The track begins, and... nothin'. The kick drums hit VERY hard, but the bassline itself was AWOL. There was a faint echo of the bass, but that was it. The song should absolutely RUMBLE, and the Crushers did nothing, even with the slider all the way up.

Very disappointed.

********

 

For audiophile bass purposes, though, I kinda approach it differently.

Speaking of EQ apps, Noozxoide Pro Rewire is a great app that provides unbelievable amounts of bass boost. Recommended to all bassheads. Also has a couple of neat features like enhancing fake soundstage effects, EQ, etc..

You can add the bassy Sennheiser IE60 to the list...

Ah. I unfortunately have no control over this.

Either/or. I would prefer to be all-inclusive, for all kinds of headphone bass :D

 

So what's the deal with the Crushers? Are they special/different to the rest of the Skullcandy lineup?

Added, cheers! This is a product I'm pretty keen on listening to. Is this the one with multiple drivers?

Also, I've added "BASSHEAD CLUB PART II" into the title of the thread.

 

Is everyone OK with this?

The Crushers have a subwoofer in them and some kinda driver that actually makes the earcups themselves vibrate mechanically instead of just reproducing the tone. Unfortunately there seems to be a WICKED cutoff at like 50Hz which renders them useless.

 

The PH6 is indeed the big can with the dynamic/armature dual setup. Just glorious things.

I think this thread is just called "audiophile basshead" to stop it from being locked like the old thread. :tongue:

I've never seen armatures in a full-size setup before.

 

Any idea where the crossovers sit? Is the dynamic driver just for bass?

If you add any test music on here I think you should add Winside Reapers. This dubstep will push your cans to the breaking point if they're not strong.

I usually use this tune to test bass, along with several others, and test tones. But the higher bitrate version would be far better than a youtube quality one.

 

(warning, obnoxious hip-hop tune incoming)

 

Celph titled ft Oktober - So Cold

Oh HELL yes. That's a GREAT tune for bass. One of my faves. This is another great one.

Diesel product. My favorite bass headphone (and headphone period, actually). 

Also, put me in the "no EQ club". I don't even use boost. I have my M100s and PH6 going into a Vamp Verza and that's it. 

Wait, we actually have that sort of thing? It's weird since having "EQ" and "no EQ" clubs would essentially be segregating each other. Then again, purists love to separate themselves from those who do use EQ, so I guess that wouldn't be a bad thing.

Right?
