A question about amp changing sound

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone.

I m new to portable amps and i have a question. An amp basically amplifies the volume without distorting it . I have hippo vb which are basically for bassheads. Is it possible when connected to an amp to make the bass less impactful? I mean can an amp change the sound of hippo vb to produce less bass.

My logic says no because it amplifies the sound of hippo vb and can't change its sound signature. I m referring to amps with no bass boost (pa2v2).

Thanks wink.gif

If you want less bass from your headphones, adding an amplifier is not the way to do it.

 

 

The two best ways to do it are:

1: adding an equalizer (or using the one you may already have), and using it to reduce the bass;

2. getting different headphones which have the amount of bass you like.

yup, in theory a good amp without a "bass boost" should also improve the bass a smidge, and by a smidge I mean giving your headphones better bass
