Headphones and Subwoofers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So after a relaxing night watching the Rugby and NBA I found myself listening to music in my room and moved from the speakers to headphones. I turned my power amp off but accidently left the pre amp on which has a Zu Untertone sub connected. I then put on my LCD2's and started listening to some music on low volume. I then crank the volume and notice I can feel the bass like I have my speakers on. Sounds pretty amazing on some bass heavy music, apart from defeating the purpose of going to headphones as people were trying to sleep I can see myself giving this a go tomorrow when people are NOT asleep.

 

Anyone else explore this combination of  headphones and sub?

No because at that point I just as well might as well use speakers.  Like you said, it defeats the purpose of headphones.

Trust me I understand that, I was just curious as to others experience with this novelty.

Tried something similar but on another level. I often use my pair of EPH-100 with my Beyerdynamic COPs. I get the mids and highs of the yamahas (which are better than the COPs imo), the bass shake of the COPs on my ears/jaw and the amazing isolation.

I have always wanted to do it with k701s. As maybe you could get more bass and still retain the sound stage.


Sold my sub a couple of years ago, but when I buy a new sub it will be one of the first things I try.biggrin.gif

Consider the paper as analogues to your cheek.

 

1. Regular A4 printer paper cut slightly lager than pads

2. Pin one side with opposing pad or object. Allow other 3 sides to remain un-obstructed

3. Play this
