Probably be some ridiculously powerful driver... Like the equivalent of the 1.5 Tesla on the AKG k812... And probably would be like 70mm for a subwoofer and 40mm for the middle and treble.

 

There is a "safe listening level" barrier.  It's a legal one and it's strict in the E.U. I believe?

I think the safe listening threshold has already been reached.  If they built an efficient 70mm sub and 40mm driver it would be able to damage your ears too easily. Buncha kids with no hearing....maybe the Chinese make one as a proxy attack on our youth and America's future by making us all deaf:p

That would be the Japanese, remember the XB 1000... then the "floods" in there Tawianese factories... I reckon the chinese created them to steal the XB 1000 Tech, so they can perfect the 70mm driver and launch an attack on American Youth... but Hawaii's already in japan so what does he care lol but bro... we got to do a collection of some kind so we can get those Sz on tour here in the states

I thought the E.U. law only effected power output limitations on audio players? Might be wrong here though... Plus... Yes. The japs already created the sz2000, 77x's, xb1000... Smart cars (to steal our masculinity. tongue.gif)

Yea that's their pay back for us westerners... create the most epic deafening headphones, and the most awesome video games. Then never allow us to enjoy either for years after the release

persona 5... Which is coming out next year... For ps3... In the U.S.... Which, I actually think its around the same time as its release in Japan? And if I remember correctly, the ps4 isn't even released in Japan yet, but its released in other countries. (because they wanted to wait until they perfect it. The only reason it was released in other countries before it was ready is to compete with the Xbox one. I feel bad for everyone who bought a ps4 in the first few months of release. They had many problems and defects. Same with Xbox one... Will they ever release a system only when its ready?) alright, sorry. Back to moar bass.

That is terrible in Europe with these laws restricting output volume.  Being not able to bypass the volume limiter would be a bummer for me.  I have never used the volume limiter in any of them as they are ridiculously limiting for the odd occassion when I wanna live dangerously.  Seeing how low in volume those limiters are, maybe my ears are already shot, so maybe it is a good babysitting law?  :confused:

 

 

 

I dont think so.  :cool:

its kind of stupid, though it doesn't apply to amplifiers I think.

Disagreed. You guys get localizations of awesome games long before we do (Xenoblade Chronicles, Bravely Default)...

It only applies on kits that have a dap with headphones. Those kits are limited to 90 db. If you buy more efficient headphones, you get more db anyways. My new Sony F886 has a new iteration of this limit. It only provides a message that I might want to not go any louder, but does not block me from doing so. But we can all use amps as we are bassheads, it's better anyways.

This shows the DAP volume at 34 (reasonable to say the least) I got another vid showing the whole flat eq BBE+10 M3B +9 Unless he is gonna show you something...anything. You should take EVERYTHING he says with a grain of salt. Reality.....it sucks for some folks apparently?.......but it's still reality:D

 

If your talking about me, you should maybe know the whole conversation before you rush to judgment on what transpired .  The SZ can move air, no doubt. I never said otherwise.

 

Discord mentioned beats and I said I actually I never even heard them/gave them a chance, if I want good bass response I turn to the Denons I own. He proceeded to give me a lecture about the SZ (a can I also own) and I replied I prefer the Denon's bass texture, layering, and overall sound to the SZ. I am sorry if it offended you or him, but we were talking about headphones  and not subwoofers. I can post a video of my  Sundown Nightshade from when I was kid if you want to see some air move:wink:.(wish I could go back)

 

The "reality" is I can say what I prefer, we all hear different, and he should take everything he has yet to hear with a grain of salt.

 

Again, I have no business on this thread, so forgive the intrusion, but there are two sides to every disagreement.

That was polite.

 

 

We all like what we like. It's not my topic and lets end it here with an aknowledgement of your right to an opinion and that you articulated that right well. I don't feel bad. This is about headbands with speakers.<<<<<Not a big deal really.

Thanks for being polite and not spamming the thread I honestly appreciate that.:beerchug:

Holy **** that's loud. And slams hard. Impact hard. But....toning out.

Gonna cover a hole and tone it down....

 

I thought my amp was at regular slam level by surprise and it was 1/2 way to that point.

Clear diff. 

 

Back to modding...

Hi, I know HBB already settled his matter with you, but there's just one little thing I can't allow to slide--can you provide us a picture of your SZ2000 together with your Denons? In this thread, we don't easily believe people's claims to ownership/audition. This isn't a personal affront, just standard procedure and general courtesy. We actually want to find a can that can objectively slam harder than the SZ. (By objective I mean low frequency SPL measurement/comparative estimate, which should be straightforward.) Of course one can cite another person's claims, given that that person is a credible source (e.g. Dischord quoting HBB).

 

The reality is, one of the main reasons this thread was created is to focus on objectivity. This is easily accomplished because, as I said, measuring SPL is straightforward. It is a common miscomprehension that we only care about bass SPL and nothing else; if there was an acceptable, cheaper way to measure frequency response than using a KEMAR dummy head, we would adopt it. Otherwise, there is nothing that would distinguish us from the meaningless communication between incompatible languages exhibited elsewhere. (In defense of subjective reviews, they can be useful in different contexts; for example--using Daniel Kahneman's technique in objectively measuring subjectivity--if there is a significant number of reviews say 100, you can derive a "subjective scale" from the terms used by a reviewer, and adjust those scales to a general one.) (Also, since we are staunch proponents of EQ, we generally don't give that high a premium to stock frequency response unless the headphones don't respond that well to EQ e.g. some headphones change FRs drastically with volume.)

 

To everyone else: HI GUYS! Been busy with moving, and had troubles building my new PC. I ended up spending $1K total for a new PC I don't really need just because I wanted to try Gigabyte's motherboard with replaceable op-amps. Add to that a new laptop purchase, so I'm temporarily out of the headphone game. I'd dropped by many times and wanted to like so many things especially HBB's Japan thread which has grown in legend, and welcome new happy owners of the SZ (the fanbase is growing!). It's sad to say this, but I'm happy to be back to concentrating on discovering new music instead of the gears.
