The paper on the earcup test is a visual demonstration of each respective headphones level of impact - a tactile representation of how the bass of whatever can is tested as it would on the ear and surrounding skin area within the earcup.

I've never heard the ULTRASONE Pro900's but I've sure read a lot of members that own those particular cans remark on their noted bass signature.

It would be great to see the Pro 900's do the paper on earcup test to get an idea of how much bass those cans pack for sure, as they may well enter the top 10 listing as result smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks for the clarification. It's a very interesting criterion you guys have set up. Definitely unique. Good luck in your efforts to find the most massive bass pumping cans. As a basshead, I commend you for your efforts.

Test starts.

At 1:10 paper is switched.. No distortion of drivers apparent. They are not close to it. Small paper is placed. Possible future paper size(??). New bass track coming as well. Possibly next week.

 

Current size is 1/2 A4 sheet of standard printer paper.

Wow, compared to the gods (SZ2000,1000, 77's) the detox is so weak.. And to think I'm not using them anymore because I find them too 'bassy' for half of my music. I really need a pair of 77's now XD

DETOX Pro's are limited by their 40mm drivers.

From what I understand these drivers are pre- tuned near to the max they can give.

The 77x's use a much larger 57mm drivers and that extra 17mm goes a long way.

The SZ2000's, already shown and the SZ1000's, yet to be shown, are full pure bred pedigree basshead monster cans of distinction (release the kraken) with unique engineered Kelton method based architecture of two separate chambers and independent driver.

The only other make and model that can compete with the SZ2000 is IMO, the SONY MDR-XB1000 with its Goliath 70mm drivers moving a lot of air inside their earcups to your ears smily_headphones1.gif

There might be more candidates, Denon 7100 and what with bass artists Velodyne who also have now a headphone, maybe even te most beautifull on the market today, but according to their repuation there should be a fair amount of bass in their headphones

After a night of burning in I can push my cans harder. 100% amp 93% phone. Upper bass boost. I'm going to do a video with these settings. There is no distortion. If this isn't proof of burn in. I don't know what is. It's purely objective. They're are basing so hard that on some frequencies they move on the table

The Denon AH-D600 was on the top 10 list but got replaced with the SONY MDR-XB1000.

Apparently the 600 has a stronger bass impact than it's higher model the 7100, so it's unlikely to be considered, unless any member who owns the 7100 would like to video the paper test and post it up?

Regarding the Velodyne headphones you mention - is it the vTrue model you refer to?

Exactly, but I never did hear them, but me and a couple of friends did buy them as birthday present for our favorite musician

I've got these cans which are certainly bassy and have 50mm drivers - will put up a bass test video of the vTrue's soon smily_headphones1.gif

...and so the tension starts to mount as NWA uploads his new Razor Kraken video....will the return
of the Kraken be a destroyer of bass or a distortion of bewilderment?.....the wait continues fight fans...... biggrin.gif
