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

    Reposting my mod of a Bi-amped JVC SZ1K headphone in this thread. Original headband broke and retrofitted Audeze headband. The cheapo Rolls crossover works nicely. RSA F35 for midbass and up. RSA SR71B for the subs. Using the tiny DDhifi Dac. Another cool way to enjoy this beast headphone. You...

    D7 Sidewinder....Initial impressions

    Ah crap, I wrote it wrong. Stock chip is WM8740 and I swapped out to WM8741. Bought the chip from Digikey.

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Well the stock cable does have 4 conductors, so you can reterminate the stock connector. I have done this to my SZ2K, to a 3.5mm TRRS. The stock cable on the SZ2K is silver plated and it's good stuff, which is why I didn't bother swapping that cable out.

    With me stuck at home, I finally completed the Bi-amped JVC SZ1K headphone. Original headband broke and retrofitted Audeze headband. The cheapo Rolls crossover works nicely. RSA F35 for midbass and up. RSA SR71B for the subs. Using the tiny DDhifi Dac. Another cool way to enjoy this beast...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    The fiio will work, but not to the Basshead levels that the SZ2K is capable off. Don't get me wrong, it will be plenty loud. But after applying Basshead EQ, the Fiio will show it's weakness in the lower frequency department. This Basshead requires at least double the power of what the K5 is...

    Introducing the LCD-i3

    A single conductor has resistance and capacitance. And then there is the fact of the actual conductor material. Slap a bunch conductors together randomly and you'll hear a sound difference. Do it properly and you won't hear a difference. Add shielding and you mess up the lower frequencies...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    For my basshead tendencies, I reterminated the stock cable to 4 pin mini xlr and got rid of the stock mmcx connectors. Also got to rid of the heatshrink used as an earhook.

    FiiO AM3D-FiiO Releases the THX AAA Powered Headphone Amplifier Module AM3D

    I use it for movie watching too and to me sounds a bit better vs the AM3B. I use the Sony ex800st or the Ibasso IT01 for movies.

    Yes the IT01 can do basshead levels with EQ.

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

    Planar drivers don't behave like dynamic drivers in the subbass department. You can make the earpads vibrate with them though. My 400i Hifiman and Audeze can go deep in the subbass region with EQ and power. The Hifiman requires more EQ to get there vs the Audeze. My SZ 2K is still king of...

    Even without EQ, you still need an amp for proper bass. That is unless you go with IEM's.
