The Best Bass Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club") - Page 46

post #676 of 1498
This may be interest to any bassheads in the UK smily_headphones1.gif (screenshot from AMAZON UK)


From what I can gather these are the same can as the Vibe Black Death cans, just with different color scheme and obviously branding, though the NuMark's appear to have a velour type material on earcups rather than Vibes pleather.

But the NuMarks coming in at this price is pretty awesome bass for your buck with their 50mm drivers cool.gif

I'll be giving my impressions when my Electrowaves land shortly wink.gif

Some drivers/headphones are just "tuned" to sound a certain way. For example, I DO believe that the bass of the Monster N-Pulse's came out stronger than that of the SZ2000 initially (no EQ, playing straight from player and no bass boost. It wasn't until @gikigill
 said that these were monsters when EQ'ed that I tried them and concurred. I STILL didn't like the overall sound signature so I got rid of them tongue.gif (and I don't use EQ nor Bass Boosts wink.gif)


Similar to what I just wrote above, the M100 can indeed hit but they have a limit, a limit that HBB quickly discovers with his set-up because of all his settings. You have to understand that not everyone uses Cowon effects + bass boost + extra amp to drive headphones to ear shattering and skull vibrating levels! I don't doubt that the M100 give the impression of slamming harder than the SZ2000s (and yes, I also had the M100s) but again, this was all with no EQ, no bass boosts, etc. Most of these can sound harder-hitting than the SZ2000s straight from a source because their drivers are already tuned AND very important, these mentioned cans LACK the overall warmth veil that the SZ2000s have.

Having said that, I can't wait to get the SZ1000s tongue.gif --> Delivery attempted - June 18, 2014 1:12:00 PM
w00t!!
It seems it's already in my local USPS post office so I'll try to pick it up Friday! tongue.gif

Definitely looking forward to your first impressions bro! smily_headphones1.gif

This is NOT safe listening level.

 

I listened to these on this volume and it's all bass. A lot of bass. Like in a car with several subs type simulation.

The 77x flutter the paper more because the pads can be almost closed forcing the air through a smaller opening. But the force on these is epic and if the cup swivel design was the same as the 77 it would eat their lunch.

 

However....you're ******* with your hearing with this ****.

 

Bravo to whoever made this Beats bass test track:beerchug:

No words.. So epic.

It's funny because the only time I become a bass head is when I'm half tanked. Which at that point my hearing is messed up due to the drinks. (damn you scotch) but when I'm drinking all I want is deep slamming bass. That is the only reason I bought the XB700 back at release and to this day it still kicks ass as long as I EQ it a bit. :P

 

The rest of the time when I'm clear headed (most of the time actually) I dislike heavy bass cans.

Man it really put the work on my ear drums. Serious long term hearing loss potential. It gives me short term (10 seconds ish now)

I don't know why, but I laughed for like 5 minutes at this... smily_headphones1.gif hehe. Alcohol does some weird things to some people.
basshead.gif well, goodnight guys. Its 1:54 AM here, and I'm starting to doze off after listening to music and playing farcry for like 10 hours straight... Hope to see some interesting posts when I wake up.

I'm such a burnout.

I normally go basshead but when buzzed slip into Pink Floyd and stuff. Some Zep, Grand funk Railroad, Cream, Blind Faith..

I wish I had a store that had them for demo anywhere close to me, just so I could try it.

 

Seems like you enjoyed the Beats track, good find huh ^.^

From this point (1:24)...puts the drivers to work...the weak drivers go to driver heaven:p

Hah, I just tried my Mad Dogs from 1:24 (laptop 50% volume, FiiO E11 100% volume + EQ2 setting [which I think gives +10dB bass]) on a friend that doesn't understand why I spend so much. At first he declined but I said "Dude, just listen to it for a few seconds".

First he was like this: d-.-b

Then the part came in and he went to dO.Ob, saying "Wow this is sick man".

Now I just need to get an ALO RXmkII which I probably will at the end of september, and see the true power of these beauty's.

Did someone put here:

Somic 489 (great subboofer bass, with nice mids, recessed treble, and large soundstage), IMO definitly better than the Sony XBxyz they try to imitate

Somic 463 - not a bass monster, but hass a nice bass impact, and it really  nicelly accepts bass boost through equalization

Takstars HD5500 have some (at least for me) some more bass than necessary, while generally being clean

Boooooom

 

 

It really is an abusive bass track. That mean flutter part is raising the stage at 20Hz and below and centered on 30 for just a bit 

The bass "chorus" is mainly 33ish 42ish and 53ish Hz. It just cycles between those three and go nuts at the flutter part.

 

 

 

Ghetto science warning

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If ya know ..ya know. If ya don't...very simple explanation of simple stuff.

Like a poor man's Michio Kaku explaining Time travel....no way you can't understand it:D (just the Hz explanation...rest is car audio)

 

A Mylar or other material driver diaphragm can more easily handle 1000 cycles or 10,000 than it can 20 cycles. Why? Extension, motion, in-efficiency of an object being extended via energy (sine wave) dealing with external air pressure and other forces including any minor defects or imperfections in the molded diaphragm material itself.

 

Distortion of drivers in headphones at 60Hz + can be a lot of things that are not the driver. However most failures in the sub bass region are the driver.

 

 

That pic above is a super zoom I took of the part of the diaphragm that is glued to the driver housing. A defect there can be exposed or formed by stress...like any other joint or connecting point between 2 items...it is the weakest part.

 

 

Another (poor) zoom of mine showing the voice coil which can tap the magnet/backplate of the driver assembly. It is often the source of distortion that is driver related. If it is just turn down the amp. If it's because of the event in the first pic your driver is ****ed

 

 

 

Pic below not mine
