Don't know, but I know the Fiio E17 definitely can drive a fun level and maybe to an extreme level - it will drive your Pro700mk2's also.

It is the Audio Technica Pro700mk2's you're getting isn't it, or Pro500mk2?

You do realise that these are DJ headphones (500 & 700 series) with a clamping force strong enough to extract juice from lemons?

Even melons, if you have a big head...biggrin.gif

Are you going to do a bass paper test video also?

I know I had a lot of fun making my test viddy with these cans...wink.gif

Actually, I got contacted by the Amazon reseller, saying he can't find them for the price quoted, and wanted to charge me $30 more.  Not impressed, I cancelled that order, and went to the local store, and picked up the HA-MR55x's.  Not sure how I feel about them though.  The highs are really veiled.  Do they come out more with proper amping, or is this the way they perform?  I'm waiting for my next paycheque, and I'll buy an amp, just not sure which one yet though.  The E11, E12, or the E17.  Still deciding.

Watch the vid.(s)

 

 

This is the rig.

 

 

It's no big deal.

 

The days of saying can "A" is a cannon are over. That's why this thread thrives and other bass ones do not. People wanna see something. They can get opinions anywhere.

 

My videos are not opinions they are demonstrations. If you'd like to demonstrate the bass impact of a Q40 or ANY other can please feel free. 

 

Show us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the EXTREME Bass thread folks....c'mon....

Sorry to keep pimping the Fiio E17, but I own it so can recommend it - I don't know how the MR55x's will respond to amping, but generally most cans sound improves by varying degree when amp is used, and the E17 has treble control which may help cans veiled highs that you mention.

Bro, have you considered this : JVC SZ1000 + Fiio E17?

This combo will blow your head clean off your shoulders.

I'd recommend if you went for the above, first track to play - Wiz Khalifa - On my level with bass on E17 set to maximum bass setting 10, crank the volume up and wait for it.

When you regain consciousness you can do it all over again wink.gif

Just a thought.....smily_headphones1.gif

To people who have the SZ2000, how loud can it get at its best? Are they basically as loud as small portable bluetooth speakers just strapped to your head with 55mm dedicated bass drivers? I think I might just save to get these instead of the 77X since $200 isn't really a lot anyway and reading some of the previous pages on this thread, there seems to be a general consensus that the SZ2000 is just superior in pretty much every way (except price) to the 77X.

According to HBB, they go up to 126 Decibel without distortion. That's EXTREMELY loud and will cause hearing damage within 30 minutes I think. It's slightly louder than a rock concert, and you should always wear earplugs to a rock concert..

Heya,

 

I measured both the SZ and the 77X for bass SPL and the SZ reached 125dB with no distortion, while the 77X reached 109dB before distortion (the 77X was able to touch 110dB in the measurement video, but I wasn't paying attention lol). You can see the posts here and here. My RadioShack digital sound meter maxes out at 126dB, and in my subsequent measurement the SZ was able to touch 126dB easily, so I bought a new SPL meter that can read up to 130dB.

 

How loud is 125dB-126dB bass? A quick YouTube search for "125dB bass SPL" yields the following videos:

 

 

 

 

The subwoofers above don't even reach 124dB, even after placing the meter just inches away. So, do you have portable bluetooth speakers in mind that are better than the above subwoofers?

 

 

JVC HA-SZ2000 maximum bass SPL before distortion:

 

 

 

JVC HA-MR77X maximum bass SPL before distortion:

 

 

 

Read the original post for the measurement details.

 

The IASCA (an official SPL competition authority) has the RTA/SPL certification that requires at least 130dB from your choice track among the official IASCA reference CD. I have that CD, and some tracks are easier for the SZ to drive than the test track I used, so with my new meter I can check if the SZ can hit 130dB and get officially certified by the IASCA (a world first in headphones!).

Cool video, but I was waiting for the segment that explained how to set up Pro700mk2 cans for a successful paper/bass test - guess that's in your next video biggrin.gif

My Cowon iaudio 10 arrived yesterday and my Fiio E12 the day before that, so I've got exact gear as you now for more accurate comparison videos - I'll be starting making these as soon as I figure out how the Cowon works and stop generally messing about smily_headphones1.gif

Can you remind me of what settings you have your Cowon and E12 at during test videos and we're using the beats bass track now?

I competed in IASCA events for 6 years and 1 year this was a test track

 

 

 My best was 131.1 using 2 15" subs getting 1000 watts each via seperate mono amps.

 

 

This is an official track. I still have this CD:D

 

Awesome work!!

HBB's the best marketing exec JVC have ever had that they never employed biggrin.gif

You'd think JVC could show a little appreciation for HBB's considerable efforts - anybody know of a valid email address for JVC HQ marketing dept or anything that could elicit a possible response?

Hey check these videos out - the bass breaks car windscreens!
