They probably only shipped the item on the next day

Cool, but WTF - don't be so sure of yourself as to what's going to do what or position - lol - even if you turned out to be correct - nobody likes a party pooper/spoiler foiler - as has been shown by the top ten class of headcans - anything can happen and from unexpected makes and models biggrin.gifwink.gif

But looking forward to your mystery can video for sure - the suspense is killing me cool.gif

I am currently looking for a good sound card for the EQ and a few new amps and after that will buy some more headphones and the amps that are out these days are amazing.

I've not heard the rha950i, but from your brief impression, they sound worth a look indeed, maybe you shouldn't have sold them with that kind of performance? Would you rate them as Kraken killers?

Sounds like you are on a spending spree bro - happy hunting, I hope you bring some fresh bass killers back here to show them off - bass hunters that bring back new big game kills are always for the win smily_headphones1.gif

I don't know where you ordered your item from but I usually use ebay and that kinda of stuff happens a lot. I buy an item and they say it takes 3-5 working days to arrive. Most of the time I buy my items on mondays so I'm able recieve them by the end of the week.

 

Well doing some math, If I order something on monday and it takes 3-5 working days to arrive, the delivery estimate should be "Thursday-Monday" but what actually happens is the delivery estimate gets delayed by a day (to Friday-Tuesday) because the seller only ships my item on the next day that I bought the item. :(

 

This happens a lot of time, happened to me when I ordered my SZ's from Amazon or when I ordered some cables from ebay.

 

 

I'm guessing the delivery window on your case only started when the seller dispatched your item, and what probably happened was that the seller only sent your item 1 day after you bought the item like it happens to me most of the time

*edit* Oh, I'll be pairing the sz1000 with the magni/modi, I'm curious to see how its going to sound. I haven't read anyone else try this combo out yet. 

 Yeah buddy!! youtube channel ftw!!!:D

 

You have seen you may wanna consider a pad change and you need amp and a low end tweakability down to 20/30Hz if possible

Maybe they got lucky. Looks like a crap shoot of housing size,driver fastening etc. Or they are geniuses ;)

I will be at my PC tonight (maybe... work work work) and I'll try to mess with the D5000s. Question: which non/less-crappy EQ do you guys use in Windows? Do you use Foobar + xxxx_Equalizer, or do you use another media player and built-in EQ? etc.

 

 

Missed it cuz everyone thought twice and put the future and quality of the thread over personal feelings which belong in PM as the site states and everyone knows but forgot. This is in a "spoiler" cuz it's got nothing to do with bass. 

I am very proud nobody has any quotes from then. It was mild compared to what happens in other threads and it was washed away by the users themselves. Yes I am quite quite  proud.:p

 

As for Ownership.....I think the weight is on me as the thread starter to keep it on the path that it was created to follow. So yeah. And with cb being the power behind it all we take dual ownership with some dubs thrown in there;)

 

 

116 pages

1700 comments

4 months of improving lists with vids and replicate able settings that are shared

And now a group that clearly will put the thread health over their own feelings.....man I feel better than ever.

 

LET ME BOLD SOMETHING TOO

 

A new owner of the SZ just joined us and he came from Youtube to here and signed up, and is in a good thread. No back bitting to wade through to find bass talk. 

I know you in as much as one can via an internet forum. I know you want the ******** at a minimum and adhering to rules and being productive at a maximum.

cb and I are  right there with ya.

@gelocks

 I know a great way via ipad.

 

With windows, sourceforge has a great eq app that works with 64 bit windows and 32bit if you dig a bit.

Good to hear your D600's rattle your head with this combination evil_smiley.gif


Perhaps you could download the below bass test mix for your bass/paper video? very_evil_smiley.gif

I've already done a bass/paper test for the hd8 DJ and will be adding them to the 40mm fight club tournament along with many others wink.gif

Good call on the XB500's - any owners who would like to make a bass/paper test video, would be greatly appreciated for sure and being younger bro to the XB700 I understand their relevance - what size drivers do the XB500's use? smily_headphones1.gif

Hey cb3723,

Sure , I was thinking about doing your test. I will scour this thread to find the instructions. I don't think my D600s will be in the tournament, as they are 53mm drivers.

I'm thinking there may be another visual way to test bass. Possible using smoke in jar. I may experiment.

Anyhow, yes the D600 plus the C5d, I was still thinking about this later today. The type of bass they were generating, usually you need dedicated subwoofer.

Here is a link to some info of the C5Ds specs and testing.


Here is the +6db curve from the bass boost. It's like they designed this amp not just for reference sound but for extreme bass heads. It's actually good for many neutral headphones to give them a boost, but it really rounds out the signal for EQd bass.

1/2 of an A4 piece of paper 

Positioned over pad in a manner that matches the headphones hinge configuration.

 

There are over 100 videos here

post #1734 of 2323

well, I've tried Hawaiibadboy and your paper tests. I'm just going to bow my D600s out of the competition. :(

 

Didn't get the paper to jump, or flutter. I think the Extreme Bass cans must be on another level of bass. Which is cool, because now I'm at least interested especially in the JVCs.


Any how, the perceived and felt bass from the AH-D600 is pretty good. No slouch. but perhaps not extreme bass head cans either.

 

I think other head-fiers should be interested in this thread, even if they don't consider themselves bassheads. Especially those that have never really felt really good sub-bass or impactful bass on a massive speaker stack or a car system, or experienced genres of music where this is an essential element of the music. To experience this, even if you don't necessarily like the music, gives perspective for the full sonic range, and an appreciation for how sound can be reproduced.

 

It also becomes a reference when recommending headphones to others. What exactly do they enjoy? How much is bass a component? If they really want this serious bass, point them here. 

 

Having boosted my D600s, and experienced heavier bass, its a nice contrast going back to their 'normal' setting which I used to consider bass heavy. It now seems 'balanced'. Putting on my HD25 or HD650 after that, they seem 'light'. It all depends on the music though, and what it is mastered for. Big difference listening to something like Tipper or Rachmaninoff - ideally two different headphones - though if you only could only have one, I'm sure some headphones could perform good for both (perhaps the D600 would fit into this category).

 

For you extreme bassheads, which is the best performing basshead can, without EQ, that also is good in other technical aspects (definition, soundstage, separation)?

Great post.

I had those d600 on my 2nd version of this list

The bass was better than other Denon when i tested em' side by side with identical tracks and settings and I put it on the list to the surprise of quite a few. The transfer onto the skull

 

 

Back of skull is lacking of jelly (flesh) but some cans will vibe the jelly forward and down the neck. The d600 lost out here but honestly...was Denon ever aiming at the lunatic fringe of the bass niche':p

 

I listen to my Akai when I rock 70's stuff or 80's metal 90's grunge but having hammers in the collection is nice. This thread is just a constant evaluation of the extreme edge.

Your thoughts are always welcome.

We have built a fine little extreme community that has benefits for all headphone listeners.

 

You are part of that community now....whether you like it or not;)

Is there a way to compare planar headphones to the ones on the list? I would assume they don't move around as much so less air coming out.

 Good question

 

The paper test is reflecting 2 events.

 

1. the air pressure change in the area between the driver and the ear.

2. The low frequency created by the driver and turned into energy by vibrating/resonating the surrounding area and that energy making it through the pad and onto the face/head.

 

The Planar might have issue with #1 but #2 should be fine as a 35Hz note is a 35Hz note regardless of the driver type.

You might have some new headphones to try out. I saw Sony was coming out with a new MDR-z series. The MDR-Z7 has 70mm sub and 50mm for everything else
