Lol at trying to do a hall of fame though. Trying to do that would make this thread end up like the previous one that was locked, (no don't put that in the HoF, the bass doesn't make my ears bleed, and I can hear the other frequencies too well)

For the guys planning on importing the sz2k keep in mind shipping is going to be around $35 or so. That's what kept me from getting them when they released.

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. 

So...what do we do now? :D

BRING ON THE BASS!!!

 

:L3000:

 

I think making an HoF list will be very highly debated, knowing how people's ears and bass thresholds vary wildly from person to person. Of course, lots of you guys are "true" bassheads, so, averaging impressions, maybe you guys could make some sort of consensus on a headphones on whether it should be added to the HoF or not?

I second the consensus. We could take a vote, maybe do a poll for each tier and whichever can gets the most votes in each tier goes in the HoF?

Okay, little update on the Price List (probably the last...so far :p):
After a lot of searching, I think I found the prices on the last of the headphones without 'em:

 

JVC

FXZ200

$345?

JVC

FXZ100

$250?

Panasonic

HJE900

$250

Phiaton

PS20

$150

Sony

XB series

$70, $80, $120

TFTA

2200 2V1

$48?

 

Of course, they're mostly just estimates taken from websites, but the TFTA was simply too hard to find, so I had to look to Amazon (ended up in Amazon.de for the price). Well, finally I could relax. :p

 

Also, I was thinking if we could add a fifth column to this list, with the header Classification onto it. I think that, with the help of the Bass Headphones Wiki, we could classify all of the headphones, whether it's simply bassy, bloated, or a bass cannon. We could, if we replce the Classification column, just take opinions from all of the people here and make a consensus, like for the HoF.

Are you using MSRP prices or "street" prices?

MSRP prices are the best way to add prices to the list, because street prices wildly fluctuate (and as Coq de Combat said, they fluctuate more than his emotions, and he's supposed to be bipolar). So yes, I'm using MSRP prices.

Don't remember if this has been discussed, but should we add a disclaimer next to headphones that tell the reader whether or not they have been discontinued?

I don't think so, but I do think it is a good idea. And maybe, also discontinued but still currently available (at least until they aren't) such as the Signature DJ.

Sadly, I found more than a few on the list that have been discontinued. Maybe a way to mark them is a good idea?

 

Thanks for the list updates thatBeatsguy, I'll get onto that later today, or tomorrow.

 

I also like the idea of a classification! 

post #463 of 1827
Maybe ranking based on availability would be better for clarity.

Availability is a tough one.. I can't get many JVC cans in my area, but I think they are easier to get in other regions..

 

(Or did you mean availability as in "still in production"?)

 

I guess having another column with "Discontinued" would be the easiest way. Discontinued cans can be marked on the list with "yes".

post #465 of 1827

I am not sure what others are thinking, but I meant that there is a difference between discontinued and no longer available for purchase as a new product and discontinued but still available for purchase as a new product.

If all I saw was discontinued without any other info, I would assume that means I cannot buy it anymore, which would be disappointing if that is something I were interested in.
