Headphones that produce bass similar to a 8in sub?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

OK, not literally a 8in woofer but something very bassy. Sometimes I want a ton of bass especially when I listen to electronic music or a song with some very low end lows. 

 

Preferably closed-back headphones. 

 

Would the Beyerdynamic 770 250ohms be a good candidate?

Possibly. An 8" sub comparison doesn't tell much about your expectations. Sub build/design, room size where a sub is used, and (sometimes) distance from the listening position all greatly affect sub performance, and 8" subs are not too great at filling a larger room with bass anyway.

The DT770s does have good bass emphasis and good bass SQ for the price. Also, if you use EQ, you could always crank the bass a little more, just like turning up the gain (volume) on a sub smily_headphones1.gif

The DT770 250 ohms do typically need an amp or other device designed for higher impedance headphones. What devices (make/model) will you be plugging them into?

Thanks, I spent awhile searching Google for bass heavy headphones and never once came across this.

I will be getting a Schiit Asgard 2, but those tubes on the Valhalla 2 are so beautiful, I really can't decide.

Not Cheap $250...actually kinda cheap (has mids) and a 55mm Kelton Method sub-woofer.
