It maybe sound strange but only pair of devices there i can see difference between dac + phone and colorfly was audio technica, other devices like beyerdynamic 990 pro, philips x1, Shure SRH1440 doesn't change the game, little bit but not wow. So, waiting for xb.


e17 220mW @32

 

e12 880mW @32

 

e17 is not enough raw power for super hard bass. 

 

Colorfly has a 60Hz slider on eq? anything lower? 30Hz??

 Eq is what?

So anyone tested out kingston hyperx cloud ?

 

It is getting amazing reviews and the price is only 100$ !!! 2 sets of pads (velur and memory), aluminium build, 60ohm 53mm drivers.

 

Do they deliver bass ? that is the question.

 

I also want to know how is the cable ? Is the dangling mic jack a big problem? and does the cable feels sturdy enough, as it is NOT detachable

I think you'd have better luck asking someone that bought it from amazon or something or maybe they're big on gaming forums.

If that's what you want I'd recommend them if you have the budget, it's ortho bass. The lows aren't emphasized unless the track is mixed for the lows to be above everything else. Orthos generally have good bass extension, so there's many choices but they don't start cheap. No bloom, no noise, for an audiophile that would be the way to go. So basically, this is the wrong thread for that. If you want bass impact or what you can call physical impact, then closed is the only way. That thread posted above me would be a good one for you.

Planars cannot push as much air as dynamics can, so I'd prefer a dynamic.

I want ridiculous bass slam without bloom or noise. Essentially this would mean an audiophile headphone with excellent bass extension and minor to median low end emphasis.

 

Does this exist?

On the Top 10 list here you will find the Fostex TH900 and TH600.  But since you hated the TH600, you probably would not like the TH900.  Go to this thread where you may find what you're looking for.  http://www.head-fi.org/t/715697/the-audiophile-bass-lounge-basshead-club-part-ii

Yeah no, the Fostex cans are too uneven and distorted. Thanks though.

What exactly do you mean by too uneven and distorted? I don't think you're going to get a clearer and more refined set of dynamic headphones that have the physical capability to push about as much air as the SZ2000/XB1000 etc.

The even order bass distortion is too high, making it syrupy, thick, and overbearing. The unevenness I'm referring to is the midbass hump, which is a very noticeable and common coloration that makes things sound boomy.

 

I already have one that hits harder than the THx00 without the coloration and distortion, but as most people here could understand, I want moar.

Hmm interesting. Ok. I personally think the D7000s have one of the cleanest and hardest hitting bass I've ever heard. The TH600/TH900 have the bass a bit cleaned up, but I guess you like a different type of bass than those cans produce. I am unsure if anything really can honestly sound "less boomy" other than high end planars which you also said you're not a fan of due to lack of air movement.

If anyone that knows this thread had 'moar'  with or without coloration and could back it up, a video demonstration would be shown here as the THx00 already rank high.

 

What headphone are you referring to btw or are they already known here? I'm intrigued, could be beneficial to the thread. So, it can't be an orthodynamic, not any of dynamic headphones on here, it's interesting since I've yet to hear physically impactful bass vibrations but with a transparent setting from any headphone. I'd say just get whatever else is the same type of headphone you're using and I'd like to know what you've got as I'm also interested in transparent but hard hitting bass.

Yes.

Low frequency acoustic energy can cause things to move. Car audio is the macro and this here in this thread is the micro

 

Thankfully this thread was built around two folks with the exact same hardware on the exact same settings playing the exact same track and displaying the same thing.

 

The exact settings of all configs are shared. Cowon ,Sony, iPad. Videos are just confirmation since arguing with a vid is kinda crazy.

If there are a set that hit harder I'd love to know the cans and the settings and the amp/hardware since there is NO WAY a set without an amp and eq pump is gonna hit harder so the sharing is important.

 

I get PM's almost every single day about bass cans and I'd be really appreciative as would the viewing public if this info was shared.

 

The Yamaha Pro 500 went from a claim to a confirm in less than 30 minutes.  And has never come under dispute.

 

 

 

Just like that...took minutes

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Textures and all that stuff is for the other thread.

Hardest hits are for right here.

 

The wiz track cycles through a 30 and 40.50Hz hit constantly and is a well known often seen track. 1/2 an A4 ...it's too easy not to do

 

 

 

 

New cans for the list....kinda excited over here!!:D
