Wouldn't that be for the hardest hitting headphones?

 

:confused: 

 

EDIT: I'm still toying with the idea of a basshead "Hall of fame".

Oops case of 'didn't read the question properly,' my bad!

 

In that case:

  1. Beats (any one take your pick)
  2. Sol Republic (any one take your pick)
  3. UrbanEars (any one take your pick)

 

Going out on a whim and guessing which ones based on how often they're being talked about by the people around me.

Ultrasone Pro900's come to mind.  Q40's are very popular as well due to their cost.  Denon D2000 is another very popular choice.  M-100 is as well tho I never liked them and tried two different times.

Has anyone here heard the JVC FX850 IEMs ? Currently reading about them and they seem to be impressive.. Many say that they're bass is reference quality, and some even claim it's the best dynamic IEM they've heard.

It's funny you should say that, because I should be picking up a pair of JVC FX700s soon. They're not the 850s, but they share the same lineage, and their sound sigs are similar from what I've heard. I'll post here with impressions.

Worth auditioning them both for you to get your answer - just remember that adding third party mods is going to bump your outlay up, but don't fret because there are very credible contenders out there that also pack serious audio punches without TH900 wallet crunches..,

... if you want something wth more pronounced bass with general more warmth of sound, then I'd recommend you audition the sublime JVC HP-DX1000 wink.gif which is roughly TH600 money or slightly just under. You lose a little of the detail offered by the FOSTEX duo, but you gain a warmer, more fun audiophile sound that doesn't need any mods to address any bass impact deficit.

Nonetheless all three of these cans are stellar in there own rights smily_headphones1.gif

The DX1000 is an underrated headphone because JVC never merketed this thing outside of Japan.  The bass levels from memory was about Denon level, the treble energy is less than the Denons, the one thing that annoys me the most about Denon cans is the treble.  The tail if cymbals dominate the attack...unnaturally splashy cymbals losing the full bronze tone and body that cymbals exhibit.  Mids are more like HD650/LCD2 than Denon.  I would pick it over my own Denons.

Also throwing this out there:

 

New Digizoid Zo will possibly cost $250.

 

Thoughts?

From the Digizoid Facebook page a few hours ago:

 

Quote:
 the ZO3 is quite an advancement over the ZO2 model. ZO3 has a full color OLED screen where each bass, treble, and volume setting is set by number (precise adjustment).The audio components were all specially selected and tested to be the best available audiophile grade (ultra low noise suppression etc.). Plus the ZO3 has (now patented) Full Spectrum SmartVektor technology. 32 settings for both the bass and treble providing 1024 different sound profiles. Theres a lot more. As you know, over a years worth of development.

 

EDIT: I've invited Digizoid to come and discuss the new product with us bassheads here. Lets cross our fingers and see if we can get some Q&A!
