Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Pranksters prank called a dude and recorded his voice as he warns them not to call his "house no more" and part of the prank the guy mentions he ain't just got off the banana boat - pranksters then use this guys voice (dubbed angry black guy) to make up a soundboard to then prank others which is what this video is of - though they overuse the "banana boat" sound bite - lol.

What can I say, these are definitely bass monsters just like their SZ2000 brother. That Beats track... damn, it re-arranged my face and I think I'm still cross-eyed...

Regarding overall sound sig, good news is that they DO sound warm overall but a bit more "tamed" than the SZ2000 (as I remember them). Vocals are less in your face as well. So I can say that up to this point, I prefer these more than the SZ2000 BUT... lack of clarity still kills me!!! 

 

These were a few of my impressions in my home set-up for the SZ2000 a year ago:

JVC definitely has the BIGGER more rounded Bass, definitely a few more dBs in the bass section (sub/mid-bass), also everything is more "in your face" on the JVCs (probably due to lower impedance and me trying to match them volumes lol), yes, even the mids... BUT the lack of clarity borders on "budget/mid-fi" to me (i.e. mids less clear than AT M50s, Shure 840s, etc. ... only on head-fi those two are "budget" cans LOL). 

(this above was me comparing them to my basshead faves Ultrasone Sig DJs mostly)

 

Now, the SZ1000 seem to do a BIT better with that regard but I'd definitely like them to be cleaner.

And this is actually not obvious on bassy tracks or genres like Reggaeton, Hip-hop, etc. but load up some metalcore or straight up rock and I definitely start missing the "bite", the guitar "crunch", etc. Which is kind of weird since the headphone I use the most (MrSpeakers Alpha Dogs) are warm as well but they definitely have clearer mids specifically.

 

Anyway, for a basshead (true basshead) these are definitely a great pick.

 

Personally I would still pick Monster N-Pulse headphones (similar price range?!) over these IF you are not looking for an "Extreme" experience.

Thanks for the thoughts gelocks!:beerchug:

 For bass bombing I love my 2000 but the 1000 are more comfy and the bass a tad less overwhelming unless I asked it to come forward. Where the 2000 just punches you in the face the 1000 kinda walks up and shakes your hand....then punches you in the face.:D

 

Throw some HM5 pads on em' go against your policy and play with the eq. I know a buncha folks with high end cans that love the dark smokey club with big amps pumping out a Funkadelic set on stage vibe these give...for $130.

do the hm5 pads give m better sound and in what way? i mean on the 2000

Hawaii (and anyone else who might have knowledge in this area),

 

How do you feel about the JVC HA-XM30X? And how does it compare to say, the SZ2000, or the MR77X?

Hey W.L.

 

The HA-XM30X is the Japanese # for the 77. I always say 77 because most folks in America or outside might get confused. I actually own a HA-XM30X

 

 

 

http://http://www3.jvckenwood.com/accessory/headphone/portable/ha-xm30x/

 

 

It's a poor mans sz2000. Plastic construction poor poor isolation but if amped it is an awesome 57mm driver suited well for Hip-Hop/EDM and other bass-centric music. Very poor mids that improve with eq but would turn an Audiophile off.

 

The SZ2000 have a +4dB ability at 45Hz and are more robust sounding due to the hard cup/driver housing.  The Sz2000 dig below audible with authority while the 77 (30x) just get down there (28ish Hz)

 

However, with a 10 minute mod they hit almost as hard as the sz2000 on 40,50,60,70Hz notes

 

This is a sick amount of air being moved...it's amazing. For it's price I rec it all day!! For folks sensitive about multi-genre' ability and mids I'd not rec it. I love these cans. I loved em' so much I just bought a 2nd pair in-case I blow my others:D $60 bucks.......money well spent (for a basshead)

 

post #704 of 8463

Awesome! (Also, a great reply, cheers!)

 

Which would you recommend if EQ wasn't a factor?

 

I think I remember you saying a while ago, you didn't love the sz2000 when it wasn't EQ'd?

40mm drivers

If you still think they are not so different from 50mm you need to get the **** off my lawn!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monster/Beats by Dre Studio 1.0

 

 

 

SMS DJ PRO

 

 

 

I heard the Ultrasone Pro 900 today and the Perfect Sound dido today and was "A" "B" testing them against the sz1000 and the contrast was extraordinary.  Keep in mind that the Pro 900 are bass legends and I actually bought into that myself. Heard these before and liked them a lot. Got used to 55 and 57mm drivers as my defaults 

 

Played the Beats Bass track and distorted the legend and the other king of 40mm drivers (dido) immediately. 

 

Turned off the e12 boost and all was well with both cans. The e12 boost is low and the Beats bass track low spike is in almost the same location and it was too much when combined.

This says nothing about the cans but a lot about the spec limit of 40mm drivers.

 

For higher bass like 75,80-120Hz they excel to a head punching point but with sub-bass they fail. So...they fail.

 

This thread is for 50mm and up. I knew that....now I KNOW that.

 

 

I dunno...make a special kids division for the 40mm drivers to play in??
