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,:rolleyes:

 

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!!:D

I feel a ripple in the force.... (predict another video down the road for these) They look real good BTW...some humming bird flutter action right there especially around the 2:00 when you ....settled down.:p

HaHa biggrin.gif - I think I was too flustered by the time I got it eventually set up due to the insane clamping force on them (they are intended for club DJ use so hard clamp for noise isolation) and ended up wobbling around with video like a loon - lol

Tried it again but too frustrating so did the SZ1000 which was strange ish in as much most of the air that was moving was coming out the back right hand side from video position which is very noticeable.

Yeah, I was really surprised at how well the Vibes did but I think it's down to a very good seal from pad to paper - took seconds to set up - everything sat perfectly - angle of top cup, bottom cup level, pads seem to keep paper even across bottom pad - and boom - paper started bouncing with bass! biggrin.gif

Have you noticed that the Vibe BLACKDEATH is identical to the NuMark Electrowave in build?

I'd say these two cans are produced by same OEM, just branded differently according to each brand holder?

Well now I feel all smart and stuff:D

 

 

 

 

I put the stamp on those back on the 1st.

 

They hammer pretty good. I actually have listened to the Black Death but it was White and blue with velour like pads...and......hammered so they got the tag.

 

Vendors can dress em any way they like but I'm gonna find em.:deadhorse:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And about that base. Cheers for a job well done!!
