The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club") - Page 65

post #961 of 8075

I have had alot of top headphones now and the jvc comes out the best. Not just by a little. BY A MILE. These cans blow everything away in the bass compartment, it's just ridiculous. 

Denon d600

ultrasone pro 900

Beats pro

Beats Mixr (i kept these one too)

JVC HA 55x (kept these one for the pad change)

JVC SZ2000 (the kings)

 

I've you want bass go with the jvc. I dont think anything else can touch these. And the overall sound quality is really good!! the bass doesnt bleed into the rest of the sound. Vocals also come through really good even though the bass is thundering in the background

Man, I'm sorry to hear that - I thought you'd found your answer in the Pro 900's, but never mind schiit happens smily_headphones1.gif

Sig DJ's are calling you methinks wink.gif - oh, and apparently the rumours of them being discontinued is not the case - so get saving - the Sig DJ's have 50mm drivers compared to the Pro 900's 40mm tongue.gif

I too was hoping that the Pro 900's were the right pick but sadly no :( I may have to give the Sig DJ's a chance, hopefully they will be the all a rounder ive been looking for.  And since I love my bass also I may look into the SZ2000's if they'll give my old XB700's a run for their money. :L3000:

Thank you.  Yourself and PocketSmiley have encouraged me to go with the 1000's.  A basshead's cans that can play smooth and easy, or hard and heavy.  Off to Amazon now. :dt880smile:

Like chalk and cheese.

JVC SZ2000 are like a Nissan Skyline GTR




Whereas the Sig DJ are like a Mercedes Mclaren





The SZ2000 EQ a harder bass slam, but the Sig DJ controls the bass into a punchy defined texture that doesn't encroach into the mids and highs, giving a true basshead audiophile refined sound that actually sounds nearly as good plugged directly into source DAP without any amp than with.

But if you're looking for a harder bass slam than your SZ2000's in the Sig DJ's, you won't find it.

I will get around to doing a new Sig DJ bass/paper test using Cowon settings paired with Fiio E17 shortly, but here's a video I did using iPod Touch with Fiio E17 amp not too long ago.

I think I know the sound you are talking of that cuts in now and then - I had these EQ to the extreme and maybe a tad too much to cause occasional rattle of driver confused_face.gif

But don't worry - no harm was done smily_headphones1.gif

SHOCKER! - Sig DJ's respond poorly to bass/paper test!

ULTRASONE Signature DJ
Cut in half sheet of fresh out the pack A4 printer paper used

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


Source:Cowon DAP ,Flat eq, BBE+8 MACH3BASS +9 playing YouTube Wiz Khalifa's "On My Level" track


Amp: FiioE12 with bass boost switch on

Notes: after nearly an hour of trying to find a sweet spot for the paper to rest, the above was the best I could get!

Is it the S-Logic with offset drivers at cause?

Cans aren't damaged in any way, so I've no idea why the bass/paper test just doesn't seem to work anywhere near other cans including smaller 40mm driver types? This is the only can not to respond stronger to Cowon + E12 set up and is no different from original iPod touch + E17 test...

Principle: Dynamic / Closed
Impedance: 32 Ohm
Driver: 50 mm Mylar
Magnet: NdFeB
Frequency range: 5 - 32.000 Hz
SPL: 115 dB

WHAT?
THE?
FUGG?

Cheesy PR videos like above aside - the Sig DJ's are exceptionally good - but are an anomaly to the bass/paper test - something just doesn't equate here, an X-File....

...can science come up with an answer, or is this an omen that precedes armageddon, the end of the world?

The end is nigh, 50mm drivers may not save our souls?

I'm off to sit down with a bottle of Jack Daniels until someone can provide an explanation to this abomination - the world just doesn't make sense anymore...why?....why?...

S-LOGIC™ does not only create a Natural Surround Sound sensation, it simultaneously allows a reduction of sound pressure levels to the eardrum by up to 40% (3 - 4 dB). This can reduce the risk of hearing damage while ensuring hours of fatigue-free listening.

 It's in the design for your listening safety. I always thought these hit nicely in the upper bass region. Sub bass less so.  I took them off the list once (despite being the sexiest cans ever) because they struggled holding the lowest notes. I think the 50mm (which is small too);) is being intentionally tamed for the listeners benefit?

 

They still look supreme and sound delicious and...AND...they care about you're hearing....that's a lot of *win.

 

 

I smell a Ultrasone being stared down by A Black death........."you're in my spot bro":veryevil:

 

 

 

 

*Paper test not included in the win

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

O.K.,

That guy just flat out creeps me out  Aryan member? Illuminati? 

The 2nd dudes hand motion are odd...maybe I think too much.....I'm kinda scared of ultrasone now:frown:

 

New World Order....brought to you by      THAT GUY!!!

I knew that...

...*COUGH*...kinda....redface.gif

This is the guy that creeps out the most - his arms look like their being moved by the blonde illuminati dude from above with strings like a puppeteer, then he packs him back into a suitcase and in basement of ULTRASONE factory for when he's needed again biggrin.gif

Apart from illuminati guy and living in a suitcase his only other buddy is this guy below v biggrin.gif who coincidentally also works at ULTRASONE factory making S-Logic drivers tongue.gif


Maybe ULTRASONE should ditch their in-house creepy dudes PR videos and use a more down to earth type like below? biggrin.gif
