Are there any neutral closed cans with good punchy bass?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I have a hard time to find the closed cans that I'm looking for. My budget is up to 200$ but if it is possible I would like to keep it to 100$.

 

I want a headphone for recording so I need it to be neutral, but I don't want to lose the bass since I found out that most neutral headphone have a weak bass.

 

Please help me :(

Soundmagic HP150 is fairly netural with a slight bit of bass and treble emphasis:



Very good headphone for the money smily_headphones1.gif

I like the bass quality of the ath m50x, but is a bit muddy, and I want something neutral :(

I heard about the NAD being good, but how is the bass compare to M50X? I'm taking it into account but it is hard in here to look for NAD since I live in Indonesia and I cannot buy online.

I have the ATH-M50. HP150 has less bass emphasis, better bass, treble, and midrange SQ, and better imagining and soundstage in comparison to the M50.

DT770? I have the Pro 80 and they have some enormous and extremely well extended bass, although it might tend to be a bit much for your taste. Mids are flat but recessed since the bass and upper treble alike are boosted. It's not cheap though but I like mine.

 

The M50x is pretty flat, but it has no soundstage, comfort is lacking, bass is a bit muddy the way it is presented, and there is some slight presence coloration in the mids around 2k.

what about the 250 and 32 ohm? I read the thread about the differences but I cannot get the point about them :(

The 80 is the most laid back from what I've read. The 32 is easy to drive but lacks in terms of refined sound. I bought the 80 because I wanted something fun but easygoing on the sibilance for my office programming job while being isolating. They're perfect for that. If you have an amp the 250 is better but will probably have less bass than the 80 and be hotter on the treble. You can listen to the 32 in terms of sound signature at least, at https://soundcloud.com/sonic-sense-pro-audio/sets/headphones-test

It's quite a v shaped can but all Beyers to my ears have very flat mids. The treble and bass quantities and soundstage is what varies the most between the 770 880 and 990. I own an 880 250 and 770 80.

Also to note: "neutral" headphones might sound like their bass is weak to you but that is because most consumer headphones have boosted bass. Maybe you just prefer boosted bass.

As much as I like the Beyers, I think the Sound Magic HP 100 is going to in the end be the better purchase for you my friend! A little easier to drive and carry around, not to mention it's a touch cheaper. THOUGH I will say the Beyers are more comfy and a little tougher
