UE6000 NC off:


UE6000 NC on:



I quite like the look of UE6000 NC on. 
One of the few headphones which measures great with NC active. On the paper it looks like UE6000 NC on > MDR-V55 > UE6000 NC off.

OP has been updated to include IEMs - a huge thank-you to thatBeats guy for fetching the MSRP of those!

 

What's the next step? Do we make a bass-headphones buying guide article for Head-fi?

 

These lists are powerful!

Yeah, they are quite competent as headphones. I've said it before, but I think I prefer the UE6000 over the D2000. Especially with NC on, for that bass. The D2000's are quite open sounding in comparison.

Whoah, like as a PDF? That'd be... insane... and cool.

A couple more nominations for the list:

 

HiSoundAudio PAA-1 Pro, a $49 earbud full of BASS and V signature.

 

JVC KENWOOD HA-FX850, my next IEM purchase.  Unsure of real MSRP as I have seen $399.99, $420 and $529 :blink:

Hmm...IIRC, user Hawaiibadboy already started a wiki article on over-ear headphones here: http://www.head-fi.org/a/the-best-bass-headphones-a-head-fi-wiki

Then again, I think that, considering the might of the Bass Lounge (with all of you awesome guys around), I think we could do better and make a more comprehensive article. 

 

Long story short, I say go for it! :D

I kinda like that wiki article because of the categories and descriptions.

Yeah, putting the Pro 900 in the HiFi section? No Denon D2000? The XB700's are in the "expensive" column of the Bassy Headphones list (the MSRP problem inversed?

LOL. I agree; I didn't notice that until you pointed that out. Heh, like I said, I think the Audiophile Bass Lounge could do better than that. Right, guys? ;)

Ok I never heard any Ultrasone or Denon so I didn't know they weren't hi-fi. But where is the list of expensive headphones?

I have to crank the FiiO up to 80% with the Logitechs versus 60% with the V55s. Treble extension is better too and they aren't far behind in the midrange or soundstage either. It's a pity as the UE6000s were supposed to be my main pair. They are much more comfy and look the part but they're relegated to playing second fiddle.

 

Might need to listen to the V55s again! For some reason I don't remember them being bassy!!

Maybe I'm confusing them with some other Sony's?!!?

Yeah, we could probably modify that one.

Well according to Blinxat's reply to my post on "Incredible I Feel", the last thing the MDR V55s needed was more bass. I actually bump up the bass a notch on my FiiO E07k with the Sonys but two notches with the Logitechs.

I think it's great as is. Maybe we should discuss the possibility of the basshead club making some contributions? It's up to you, of course.

 

RE: everyone else saying we should "compete" against the fantastic wiki that gelocks and HBB have created:

Warning: off-topic rant ahead (Click to show)

We are not in the business of competing, or bullying - we are better people than that. 

 

We just do what we can, and if people appreciate it, then we can be happy, and cherish the fact that we created something people enjoy. 

 

I'm not doing the Basshead club to compete, or be "better" than anyone/anything else - I just really enjoy bassy headphones, I love the headphone bass community, and I want to contribute to the Head-fi community in general.

 

If people want to take offence to that - they are doing so under their own interpretations. 

 

I don't come to Head-fi to grief people, or make people unhappy - I just come to discuss headphones, and chat to mates.

 

:beerchug:

 

If I told you guys some examples of reactions people have had to me making this thread, you actually wouldn't believe me. 

post #449 of 1833
Finally I can re-join the bass head club. "Certain people" aren't allowed so I'm definitely back. HEY GUYS! 😊

I have to recommend you check out the corecool v2. Popular choice is hippo vb (didn't impress me personally, but then again I had no amp back then).
