If it's just bass quantity you're after, you're better off with the m-100. If you value sound quality, listen to a wide variety of music and want something that plays it with warmth and authority - you should take a look at the sz2000.

Personally I'm happy the JVC isn't another one trick bass pony. I enjoy my m100 when I'm in a party sort of mood and just want to play loud with some trance/dubstep/rap, but for everything else I rather put on the sz2000.
... Jeez. Look at these posts from 2013... People were saying the m-100's hit harder... Then HBB comes on, and with his godly equalizer unlocked their full potential. Ati, you must not use eq or you wouldn't even be saying these things. Go find another thread. We don't appreciate your opinions. We appreciate facts and evidence. If you can't provide that to us to back up your words, then... Sorry. We will have to disregard what you've said until proof is given to us.

Hey dude.

Got it. Never tried those nor the Numark (or whatever they are called) brand. And again, were you bass boosting/equalizing both (i.e. same set-up?). I guess that would be the main difference. 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 :p (and I don't use EQ nor Bass Boosts ;))

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 :p --> Delivery attempted - June 18, 2014 1:12:00 PM

Important...please read.

 

Yesterday was a horrible experience. I used to act like that. I'm ashamed. Putting up with that stuff is really stressful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyday I wake up I am hoping to see a video in a post. Showing their stuff with the clearly and easily imitated criteria.

Showing a new can

Showing we were incorrect or too quick to judge.

Does anyone think that @cb3723  or I really care if another can flutters a piece of paper more?? I might go check those cans and....buy them.

Has anyone thanked cb or myself gelocks or NewWaveaudio for taking our time to try and do something besides talk? I can think of 2 posters out of 1000's

Have you ever seen the XB1000, XB700, Sgnature Dj, Dx700, sz2000, sz1000, 700mk2, Beats DETOX etc all in the same place trying to do the same thing in the same thread? Ever send a PM to cb to say thanks? He's a treasure to this site. Tons of cans and loves them all. I'm blessed to have crossed his path. If you're a basshead you are blessed too. You will not see this anywhere else.

 

You're welcome.

Thank you to

for contributing

 

gelocks is old school but he showed a classic can than many have never seen. Thank you bro!! Newwaveaudio...I was thinking "cool story bro" about the Razor Kraken and saw the vid and realized it does thump.

 

The power of video:D

 

Let's talk bass. Let's see bass.

Haha alright, this thread has piqued my interest. I'll try out the JVC HA MR77X. Is the cheapest place to find these for US customers just eBay? Also would be nice if the driver to these cans were available openly for order without having to actually buy the full assembly. At under $60 I feel like I should at least try out what the "extreme bass" is about if I'm really a self proclaimed basshead.

I was wondering if the JVC HA-SZ2000 would be suited for dubstep, and just bass music? i'm not really sure how to describe the genre, the songs basically have a bassline, and random noises, clips thrown in. Many people just call the songs a bunch of noise, but for some reason, they really get my jollies off.

 

Here are two examples  

 

https://soundcloud.com/ar-the-bushmaster/ar-qwweqeqw

 

and

 

https://soundcloud.com/detzkyuk/dtzky-billy-boss-free

 

These are my playlists, the first and last of which are the music i'm interested in the SZ2000 because of.

 

https://soundcloud.com/user184579369/sets

 

I don't think i care whether or not my skull rattles, i more care about the sound, and the bass being as heavy and juicy, insert other descriptors, as possible. Do you still recommend a pad swap on the SZ2000's? If so, what pads do i get, and what is the cheapest way to aquire new pads?

 

I read the first 6 pages of this thread, but i'm unsure about how your results can benefit my specific needs.

 

I hope this made sense, and you can help me out.

 

Thank you so much!

Marcello

 

I think the SZ2000's will do fine (and thanks for introducing me to this kind of music, I love discovering new stuff :) ).

 

So, HBB, when will the SZ2000 be tested with the Beats track? I can't wait to see that ^.^

In my opinion these are the biggest punching cans under $100 stock. The mids are poor. For Hip Hop they are fine but I don't rec anything else

 

 

I did a very simple mod. 

I can explain step by step if you like.

 

 

And now they do this...

 

 

If you're a basshead this is nutz and you know it.

If your not a basshead in the headphone arena and come from car audio like I did...let me tell ya...these are nutz.

Is this a safe listening level for my long term hearing??<<<<You will be pondering that. I lose my hearing for a little bit with these wallet friendly bass

 

EDIT:

The HAMR77X

http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HAMR77X-Headphones-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B00C1TBYBC

and the HA-MR77X are different cans. Get the ones with the dash "-" ma

http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HA-MR77X-Xtreme-Xplosives-Headphones/dp/B00F34JP7W

 

These are just fun cans. You like tons of good un distorted head bumping bass...these got that. They got no mids

(kinda because the bass is eating them alive. ...knda hard to discern 400Hz when 45Hz is assaulting you) If that's not your thing at all stick with the nice Sone's:D

Ultrasone Signature DJ


Approx half of a sheet of fresh out the pack A4 printer paper used


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

Test Conditions



Source: iPod Touch with EQ set to bass boost, playing YouTube Wiz Khalifa's "On My Level" track



Amp: FiioE17 with bass EQ to max setting 10 and 12dB gain

Recommend:

Play video on full screen to check paper vibrations with fullest detail

Thoughts: Sig DJ's produce a consistent low to mid paper vibration.



 
Sony MDR XB700


Approx half of a sheet of fresh out the pack A4 printer paper used

Test Conditions



Source: iPod Touch with EQ set to bass boost, playing YouTube Wiz Khalifa's "On My Level" track



Amp: FiioE17 with bass EQ to max setting 10 and 6dB gain

Recommend:

Play video on full screen to check paper vibrations with fullest detail


















Both cans owned by @cb3723

 The Signature DJ's are by far my personal favourite bass can in terms of sound quality, soundstage and amazing controlled punchy defined bass that is simply a revelation to experience with the plus of these cans performing without any amplifier to an astonishing level - I usually just plug and play direct to my iPad, but TBH you would kinda expect this for the price they come in at - they ain't cheap, but I think they're worth every penny - an audiophile bass can with pedigree in every aspect - from sound to build - these cans excel in virtually every dept.

When it comes to the purpose of bass slam, like all cans featured here, they need bass EQ, and as is shown in the videos, the Sig Pro's don't deliver the amount of slam as the more basic and less refined XB700's which are a great can in their own right and price point - a lot of owners prefer the XB700 over their big bro XB1000 which I can understand though personally prefer big bros 70mm drivers - pretty special IMO.

So, in regards to the winner of the Sig DJ's Vs the XB700's regarding bass slam - it's got to go to the XB700 - it may be a blunt bass slam instrument compared to it's refined competitor, but sometimes when the criteria is focused on one particular attribute (bass slam), detail, separation and refinement can't assist and have to bow out with dignity still very much intact.



ULTRASONE Sig DJ YOU LOSE!!
