The Best Bass Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club") - Page 63

post #931 of 2252
Okay, so I now have my amp, a Fiio E17. Do I go with the SZ1000's or the 2000's? Keep in mind, the 2000's are $100 more here in Canada.

Lower all the 5 sliders from 497Hz to 16k to flat (zero) 

Raise the 62 to the max and lower 32 to zero then slowly raise 32 step by step and listen to the track while you do that.

The sz are fine flat in the mid and highs

Listen while you adjust.

SONY MDR-XB1000
Cut in half sheet of fresh out the pack A4 printer paper used

No tape used - paper placed over left earcup with right ear cup holding/sealing
Test Conditions


Source:Cowon DAP ,Flat eq, BBE+8 MACH3BASS +9 playing YouTube Wiz Khalifa's "On My Level" track


Amp: FiioE12 with bass boost switch on
Recommend:
Play video on full screen to check paper vibrations with fullest detail


Notes: The XB1000 big oversize 70mm drivers push some serious bass air transferred onto the paper causing at times very tight intense vibrations and what is also noticeable is that virtually the entire mass of the paper vibrates with exception of the back top left of the sheet, compared to some cans tested that only vibrate a quarter of the paper sheet - but I guess this is to be expected with the XB1000 due to the size of drivers pounding out a huge wave of bass air pressure. To experience this head pummelling bass is a whole heap of fun with the only downsides been any tooth fillings coming loose, dizziness and/or possible brain damage if prolonged use is applied - lol biggrin.gif

The other thing I was also really considering that looks very promising is this oldie, but goodie. It's a vintage classic and what little information there is on it says that it is pretty much akin to strapping subs to your ears in terms of air moved. The drivers are cone based speaker sets that measure in at 3.5in (that's 89mm!). So, if we are really trying to find the best bass canons I think I'm going to try to nab one up on eBay to test out (they aren't very expensive at all). I can't really imagine 89mm drivers to not be amazing. I'll report back when I have them. 

No worries, amp is clipping.

 

+ The video was a troll towards the Head-Fi member DisCHORD. He kept asking and begging for me to put up a video of the mad dogs, so yeah, that's what I did. In the most crappy way possible ^.^. The vid wasn't really ment to see the day of light. But it looks like some people don't feel like asking permission to steal my video's.

Man I knew these were coming:D

 

It likes the jeteffects....all the bass cans seem strut their stuff on that setting.

70mm...c'mon man.....that's crazy!!!

 

When you consider...and I do....how much pad that is traveling up and still fluttering the paper. Serious badass. I wish they would throw another 70mm into a bass can instead of that open back one Sony puts the left over 70mm drivers in.

 

I'm getting me one of these.

So Y U No do a Alpha Dogs bass/paper test done to the best of your ability rather than make a sour grapes post of back tracking claiming to troll DisCHORD?

If you are prepared to do a "troll" video, then surely you are prepared to do a bass/paper test video?

I'm calling BS on the above entire quoted post rolleyes.gif

kilspeed - lighten up - your Alpha Dogs Fail video gave a lot of lols biggrin.gif

In fact just thinking about it starts me off giggling - I'm gonna watch it again right now wink.gif

Wish I had a pair of Alpha Dogs, but I've got a pair of Mad Dogs. You've probably LOLled to hard to be able to read the title.

Planar's are not able to make these 'paper test video's'. You own an LCD-X, you should know that.

You may call BS whenever you like, not that I actually care.

They gave a lot of LOLs? Great, I'm happy to make people laugh :)

Sure, watch it again, just link to my YT channel and take it off yours.

Just by checking your photos you've posted of the headphone superstores you have available to you in Japan, I don't doubt you can still pick up a pair of the XB-1000's up and at a decent price.

Here's what Amazon UK currently have a Japan import USED pair listed at, current as of today!

I didn't bother reading past your first sentence as you are clearly crying like a small child - please regain your composure and return with dignity at a later time wink.gif

Uhm.. CB..? WTF? What's wrong with you man, you aren't you.

How am I crying like a small child..? I'm just saying that it's great that people are having a laugh, that's what it's intended for.

I think you get me wrong, I'm not mad or 'crying' O.o? All I didn't like was that you took my video without asking me first. I just can't stand stuff like that sorry.

edit: can you grant permission for the extreme bass club YT channel to host your video?
