you know I'm going to do this but, have you SPL matched each one, the two videos are not recorded in the same volume so I assume the XB playback was quieter than the SZ2000, and if it was quiter than ofc it had less bass, it was outputting less spl
that said you need to start doing spl levels for your tests, you can afford a semi cheap SPL metet, other wise the validity of your tests stand in question.
you know I'm going to do this but,
Takes 15 minutes bruh....anytime you're ready
This thread is displaying a form of low frequency response using some powerhouses in the Headphone arena. SPL meter is not going to give you the golden ring. If you wanna know what cans will make your skull vibrate you're in the right place. If you wanna talk about SPL make a thread and use your meter. (everybody gotta buy a meter?....you just need a 1/2 an A4 for this test) Better than that is to upload just one video. Worth 10 times more than word like "validity" and validity is up to the viewer. CB,Newwave, I and other testers are not going to blow our cans to validate anything....sorry.
Easy to critique a mousetrap design. Even easier to take a vid of your cans using this tests parameters and you push the gain as far as you are comfortable with.
I ain't mad but...c'mon.....validity?
They were and are calling stuff like Q40 "cannons" on this site without any kind of effort to show it.
Bring it on bro!!
