I don't know about the CitiScape Downtowns, but everyone who listens to them mentions how good they sound and they're a well-known bassy headphone.
Yeah, most people I know that have the Krakens can't stand to listen to them unless they're eq'd. I haven't tried the top of the line Sennheiser but I have heard all of the ones they carry in store. I have tried the ones you mentioned , and they were not to my liking. I like darker sounding headphones. Too bright and flat for my taste. But I do know people that like those. You like what you like. I have nothing against. Everyone has different taste on what they think there music should sound like. With all headphones there will be people that love them and people that hate them.

I use double sided tape (thick) with the cover left on one side so it's like dampening material in thickness. I do not use just regular tape. Not for final mod anyway.

Haven't heard any of those, but they look interesting.

I was gunning for you to get the Wang because they could be returned.

The more you know....the more you know.

Now we have somebody (you) who can speak directly to how they fail to measure up. For me it was the lack of amping because of the amp on board already.

You know them better than most now.

That's a good thing.

 

I just spent 3 hours with 3 cans I will never buy...probably but I wanna know. 

Knowledge is power.:D

 

 

The part I bolded.

 

If everyone would remember that this place would be much funner than it already is.

I used to try and stuff my opinion down throats....why?...I dunno?

I grew outta that.

I enjoy myself much more now.

1 is going on the list and replacing one on the list now

1 is little bro of the 2000 and it has a bigger bass....:blink:

1 is so similar to the 1500 but needs negative eq to get to where the A&H go without fancy eq tricks.

Thanks Hawaii. I also feel that way. It's not good to force your opinion on people. If they don't like it they don't like it. not everyone can like what you like. I agree this would be a much better place if people thought that way.

That's odd. The cheaper ones have more bass? Kind of reminds of something similar with my Sonys'. The cheep MDR V55 have more bass than the full size X10.

A problem I had with the Fanny Wang's is that they aren't compatible with the built in amp /boom sound. Decreased the volume of the headphones. I had turned it off, eq it flat, and reduce the bass to prevent it from distorting. For some reason even though those had a built-in in amp, the Krakens are a lot louder without an amp. The FWs were unusable if their amp is turned off.

Well it's noteworthy that my JVC 55 had one vent and my 77 had none but it became clear that 2 open across from each other and a pole vent sealed gave the loudest deepest bass.

Your Kracken are the first I have seen open and bingo. No pole vent and 2 open vents.

 

That close proximity on the Kracken would seem to limit amp headroom just a tad but the 2 open vents is matching my trial and error stuff. For deep loud bass on a 50mm driver for sure and a 57mm the airing of the rear diaphragm is a huge plus.

Your Kracks were already put together with a mind to big bass.

That's cool.

They preform pretty well with an amp too. It is able to handle the one I had at full volume with no distortion. They can't handle much bass boosting though. Bass boost on amp can make them distort slightly at full volume. They don't really need any bass boost though. Any more bass in these would be too much.

The e12 low boost is the final killer for many cans. They can jold out until that low boost is thrown on top of everything. It happens again and again to cheap cans and expensive cans.

@Hawaiibadboy I'd love to try the Razer Tiamat 7.1. It has 10 drivers in it.

10 small drivers are, based on reviews, somewhat inferior to 2 full-size 49 or 50mm drivers. Then again, I would like to see the true 7.1 surround sound in action, though. But assuming these sound like the Tiamat 2.2s, I wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot pole. They just sound really bad, especially at the price you have to pay for them. The Krakens are just as bad, but they're cheaper, so yeah.

Having tried a few of their headphones and headsets before, I could say that they aren't really made for bassheads. They're probably just made for the general public who like to play games and don't know any better. IMHO that is what Razer's aim is.
