The  55x-s have such hard hitting bass with good clarity when paired with the e6. I can't imagine the bass the HAsz2000 produces.

I was wearing Beats when I heard the 55x and saw the price...and heard the bass again.....like I said it was the start of my journey.....the list...the videos the hunt.

 

It all started with those cans. I got flamed...they blew out...but they started all this.

a thread with 220,000 views

 A YT channel with 100,000 views

 

 

Began around the day I took this pic.

 

Enjoy.

It's a drug.....the bass

 

You're gonna need more someday...enjoy the journey

Finally had a chance to listen to my th900... So far I'm loving them, unamped. Can't wait to listen on my amp.

I love Spring Break, Just modded the xx77's. Wow, The entire inside was covered in dynamat including a ring around the driver.  Cushion stuffing inside the dynamatted cups.  I added a foam insert from my bike helmet under the headband, again dynamat made it stick.  This is now a very resolving and detailed headphone that rattles the skull.

One thing that I have noticed in my exploration of headphone guts.  The wires they use are incredibly thin.  It just makes no sense in spending tons of money on cables when that same signal passes through such tiny and cheap conductors. 

Just ordered the ma900 based on an excellent you tube review done by our Cornish.

Cool!

Folks get out as much as they put in. Like life...

The way wires are soldered to the driver...the # of individual wires is scarily few.  I would pref a glob of solder on a chunk of wire greeting me when I open cups but it's always a delicate little thing:mad:

 

The ma900 are 8-$900 sounding 70mm, bass lens having beauties. They blow my mind. It's like a little secret that HD800 owners keep to themselves since I know of several that own both. The HD are $1,500ish (in Japan)  It is the perfect "ying" to a bassheads "yang"

Only 700 mW max input I think so treat em' gently. So light you'll forget they are on your head.

 

Awesome stuff. Enjoy!!

They hit very nice.

I'd get the ws99

D600 cost more sound a bit better but will not transfer bass to the head as well because of the comfy pads.

In most any other thread the D600 gets the rec but this is about bass kick




Thanks hhb. I like the sound signature of ws99 but i dont think they have enough juice to rattle brain like sz2000. Ws99 seem sturdy enough, will last long if you never sit on them. I got a good deal on sony mdr1r under 80* bucks on ebay. They have some good reviews. In the end Jvc's offer some sick bass, not diggin it for a while until they release sz3000 lol.

Just want to say thank you to HBB for creating this thread and for those that helped point me towards fostex. My first headphones, over ears since being a kid. My god, do I love these things. I was finally able to get a good listen in yesterday, by myself at my office... Wow. Unreal. I thought my IEMS sounded amazing... Now I don't want to wear IEMS anymore!!!

So I am toying with adding a portable amp to my stack. I have 2 daps I use, AK240 and fiio x3. Both sound incredible, X3 seems to do just fine but I love my gadgets. Seems like Cayin is the way to go. Anyone compare the CT to the e12a? Both have bass boosts... I was thinking of even the more powerful e12 too... Or any other suggestion. Budget is not as much of a concern as being portable. Hugo or something of that size is counter productive.

Also, I love the sound I don't want it to get muddied up. I love bass, as much as possible without it interfering or bleeding.

Glad your happy!

 

 

 

 

Hard not to be with the TH:biggrin:

 

The Cayin C5 is the way to go. e12 is congested by comparison. It is a wonderful amp (C5). It is not basshead but we can use and enjoy it. It should fit very well if a portable amp is the way you want to go
