I think it was just a figure of speech ^____^

I know, I know...

Anyway, I thought I'd add something to the list. However, this pair is only for consideration, and so you don't need to add it...if you're a purist.
This pair is the Razer Kraken.

I know a lot of people say "stay away from Razer" but I just thought this'd be a good pair for gaming. It does its job, but doesn't sound that good when you're listening to music. They sound really bloated thanks to a massive hump around 400-500 Hz. Everything else is just muffled thanks to that.

But I went forward and applied EQ on it, and wow. It was just a simple bass reduction where the problem was at, but I didn't expect the potential the Krakens had. Applying a -4 dB reduction like so...



...I was able to get a great sound signature. The sub bass was phenomenal to my ears (mostly because I haven't heard bass that went that low). It had great rumble and a strong kick, though it felt a little flabby. The mids lacked some clarity and presence, while the highs needed more crisp and sparkle. Of course, considering you've already EQ'd them, it's nothing to complain about. All in all, the Kraken has a power inside of it...something which has yet to be released. I'd like to see if someone modded these out of boredom or something.

I'll always try my best to not discriminate based on brand, mate!

 

Let's have a closer look.

 

 

Frequency Response: 20 – 20,000 Hz
Impedance: 32 Ω at 1kHz
Sensitivity (@1kHz, 1V/Pa): 110 ± 4dB at 1 kHz Max
Input Power: 50 mW
Drivers: 40 mm, with Neodymium Magnets
Inner Ear Cup Diameter: 50 mm / 1.97”
Cable Length: 1.3 m / 4.27 ft plus 2m / 6.6 ft splitter adapter
Approximate Weight: 293 g / 0.65 lbs
Connector: Analog 3.5 mm combined jack (headphone and mic)

 

To be honest? On paper it doesn't look so bad. And they look pretty comfortable, too. I've never really tried gaming headsets before.

 

Dat headband.

I know some of you probably don't like her, but she's one of my absolute favorites and has been for a long time, and some of her tracks really are bassy and messy:

 

 

Good for testing bass.

She's definitely creating a splash in recent months.

 

Maybe this "just post music when you feel the need" is better than having huge lists of music in the OP? Seems to be working so far..

 

Also guys, just so you know, if you disagree with anything in the lists in the OP, feel free to bring it up, we can discuss it.

Probably, because him and Hawaii are the one's who got the other thread locked. 

 

I mean every post of his and Hawaii's were about the JVC's, AKG 240's, and the E12. He responded to every post, and basically made that thread off-topic central. 

 

 

Look at how nice this thread is now without them.

Subbed, I just hope this thread stays a little more on track than the last one.

 

Should be receiving the Perfect Sound Didos d901 over the weekend to perform a review.

They're supposed to be really bass heavy.

I've heard the Didos are kinda THE audiophile basshead can. Definitely curious what the verdict is.

They are VERY heavy bass, much like the Sennheiser HDJ 8's and 7's.  Better in my mind but comfort is not great and fit is slightly weird.  Because of those two factors I personally don't rank them very highly, especially compared to D7000 or TH900.  Just my opinion of course.  They certainly don't lack bass...........

Welcome! 

 

Also, I'm pretty interested in those. I wonder how they will respond to EQ? 

 

 

I know looks are subjective, but I think I'm digging the look of these.. I wonder how they are for comfort?

Was there another PerfectSound product that had balanced armature drivers as well? Or did I just dream that?

I like the styling of these cans too - they look like a chrome version of beats pro cool.gif

From my specific experience,
comfort is terrible. There is little movement in the earcups and the earpads, although they have the depth that it looks like they have, have very minimal padding. Maybe a centimeter to 2 centimeters of actual padding from memory. Very stiff.

I had tried eqing both positive and negative, and bringing the bass louder and quieter. It seems the bass really doesnt effect the rest of the sound frequency that much on these... with a +12 db bass boost, the mids arent effected nearly as much as you would think, and were still clearly audible. Reducing the bass did little to nothing for the rest of the spectrum.
