...conversely, some of the prices are waaaay lower than you'll find them for (Sony R10 for $180?).

 

Also, I believe Smeggy sold his Thunderpants (umm, his modded headphones I presume, nothing else you may think of) for $500, not $1000+. I may be totally wrong on that one though. Also, when I think of it, there's a "Darth Beyers" missing on that list (also somewhere around $500 IIRC).

Some of the headphones have a price range, especially the customizable ones like the Darth Beyers if I recall correctly.

True, and the basic Darth Beyer (V6) seems to start at $465 including shipping. Source: http://www.headphile.com/page8.html 

 

Still, those were said to be basshead material.

 

Oregonian might shed some more light on them, as I just saw him mentioning in an old thread that he had the V3.

Oh, they were basshead material for sure.  Just sounded like arse.  Seriously, looked good, just could not get them to sound decent but yeah, they could bring deep boomy bass.

O - M -GAWD!!!!!:eek:

 

I thought that was a wind-up joke thread at first, until I clicked on the below link :eek:

White Lotus needs to get his cans outta the trees, like right now!

 

Hope he doesn't use indoor plants or mini trees or something as a can stand that bugs could dwell on that could infiltrate the driver/earpad cavity (do mini trees exist like that?)

 

Man, I'm starting to see ants on my cans - my eyes must be playing tricks on me though as there are no ants where I live - though ants may just prefer STAX 009's? :biggrin:

 

Ants in your cans?

 

S**T just got real :blink:

A number of people have brought this up already, so I've just added this to the OP:

 

Quote:
 ALL PRICES ARE IN MSRP. We cannot monitor the market in every region for pricing.

 

To avoid confusion. 

 

I have the day off work today, so I'll spend some time on the list. To do list:

 

  • Add in "availability" column
  • Add in the remainder of the IEM MSRP pricing
  • Add in Darth Beyers

 

Also, I couldn't find any pricing on the Thunderpants, at all.. Help?

I'm not sure I understand what this means?

 

BTW: Welcome to the club mate, great to have you along!

Since Smeggy doesn't even make the Thunderpants anymore, you should probably just go with what they go for on our FS classifieds. I've seen a few over the last few months ranging from $425-$500, so maybe price them somewhere in between or price them at $500?

Can I fanboy and geek out too? All I have is a camera phone to take pics ( :( ), but here we go with my 2 pride and joys anyways!

 

 

post #489 of 1827

dear basshead club,

 

Please recommend me new headphones!  ~$100-$200 range.

 

Currently i'm rocking cheapo koss pro dj-100 (with m50 pads) but it just doesn't cut it.

 

I've had denon dh700 - I liked them (its been awhile, but I remember wishing the bass extended deeper)

Also had akg tiesto - they were ok but i got rid of them

 

anyway I think I perfer a flat tone with good extension (versus the v-shape)

 

considering denon d600 or logitec ue6000 on closeout - do you think these are worthy upgrades?  maybe m-40 as well.

 

FWIW, no amp yet.

Great work in this thread.  I am glad that WL has brought back the bass head thread, now better than ever.  Here is aomething I have not done in a while, post some pictures of my gear.  Although getting my head around bluetooth was a little tricky.

 

 

I have a new found enthusiasm for my D7000s after recent developments in my acoustics laboratory / bachelor pad:

 

 

I have found this youtube sine sweep video to be the most useful for testing and tuning bass and mid integration.

 

 

When my reference material includes bassotronics on quad 15 inch mid woofers supplemented by dual 12 inch subwoofers any doubt I have of myself not being a basshead is vanquished.  Now my LCD2s seem somewhat bass light in comparison, albeit with less speaker like performance and more direct injection of the electronic signal into the brain like transparent quality.

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.

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

My personal take on the question to compete or contribute with HBB & gelocks wiki is definitely to contribute - talk of going head to head to me is unnecessary BS that causes drama.

I personally contribute to this thread & HBB new thread without prejudice and though some may not appreciate HBB's posting style, one thing I can say about the guy is that he has a shared passion for bass that unites us all.

If you take a look at HBB's current thread you will see just how passionate he is with his break down of the JVC SZ2000, which I guess us his current top runner for king of basshead cans, which he is putting forth his case for this in a very well put together argument, but his enthusiasm for bass as with many members on this thread is infectious.

It's a shame that since his return from a TB, that there has been little contributors to his thread and also that there is two parallel threads running the pretty much same subject that is perceived by some as in competition with each other.

I say let bygones be bygones and unite in the name of BASS and all that sail in her smily_headphones1.gif

The hardest hitting bass headphones I've had, and currently using is the $60 Razer Kraken from Microcenter. With a $30 Auvio amp from radio Shack. Strong vibrating extended bass. Nice sound quality when eq'd properly. These hit so hard when amped they make your teeth chatter. Awesome feeling. Sounds good without amp, but since I've heard them with an amp I couldn't use them without it. Great cans for the price. Currently listening to Aloe Blacc in them and it sounds amazing.
