    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    Ah yes you're right its the Zenith I'll be looking at. The 14mm driver seems to perform very well for our needs.

    Another vote for the FutureSonics G10. I drive them with my Fiio E18 DAC/Amp and they hit hard and extend VERY low! Absolutely love the sub-bass extension, rumble and texture on them! Very good for deep house and DnB. I also love their signature as they have a smooth treble presentation so can...

    As a basshead and lover of the Carbo Basso's I'd like to see how the new Basso's compare.

    Hi guys I recently purchased the Futuresonics G10 over a month ago so I've had some time to burn them in and listen extensively. Had to purchase them from US as they're not available from the UK. All I can say is WOW! The sound signature is right up my street; the sub-bass is amazing, it rumbles...

    They look interesting....sound sig that is non-fatiguing and sub-bass heavy. Although I wonder just how hard and deep the 6.5mm woofer can hit. The housing look quite large/heavy though

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    I have the G10 on my wishlist too. It fits my preferred sound signature of flat mids and highs with elevated sub-bass. Apparently they work well when amped too, but I'd love for someone on this thread to share their experience with the G10 amped and un-amped to give an idea of how much power...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    The N3 looks very tempting as I'm after a huge subbass but smooth mids and treble signature too. My previous IEM were Carbo Basso which had great subbass, however they suffered from housing rattle when the bass was amplified. And then my right hand side earpiece has started to cutout. I'm...

    Fender FXA2 versus Future Sonics G10

    So just an update. I've spoken to Luckbad as he has experience of both iems. He says that they have a very similar signature of elevated sub-bass and smooth elsewhere. The main differences are in the fit and the cables. The G10 are smaller and can be worn cable up or down. The FXA2 can only be...

    Zero Audio - ZH-DX200 Carbo Tenore | ZH-DX210 Carbo Basso (Carbon & Aluminium IEM) thread

    I guess too much power for too long time. I do like me some bass so I'm always after iem/headphones/speakers that have good sub-bass that can be driven hard. I knew it was blown because every time a bass note is played it doesn't sound the same as before and the same as left-hand earpiece. It...

    Zero Audio - ZH-DX200 Carbo Tenore | ZH-DX210 Carbo Basso (Carbon & Aluminium IEM) thread

    So after 1.5 years of solid service my Carbo Basso's have given up on me. The right hand side is cutting out and also sounds like the driver is blown. I do listen to a lot of heavy sub-bass music such as that found in DnB, deep house and hip-hop. Can anyone suggest an upgrade for these? I...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    Can anyone do a comparison between Fender FXA2 and Futuresonics G10 please? Both of these seem to have the dark, sub-bass heavy, smooth treble sound sig that I'm after. I'm especially after sub-bass quality and quantity and how well they react to amping; are they able to handle lots of power...

    Fender IEM (Aurisonics) Impressions, Reviews & Discussions Thread

    Cheers mate! And finally can you or anyone else compare the FXA2 to the Futuresonics G10? They seem to have the same sound sig at a similar price point. I'm really torn between these two and my wallet will only let me buy one

    Rose Technology Discussion & Impressions Thread

    Thanks I suppose thats to be expected with a vented dynamic driver.   I may just bite the bullet as effortless sub-bass is what I'm after. I hope they pair well with the Fiio E18 and not make the high's sibilant.   For comparison I wonder how the reputable ASG2.5 stack up? Anyone able to...

    Zero Audio - ZH-DX200 Carbo Tenore | ZH-DX210 Carbo Basso (Carbon & Aluminium IEM) thread

      Okay I've probably got around 70-80 hours on these, dont really get much listening time due to busy work.   They definitiely have tightened up a little bit, but only marginally. They're still a little loose for what I would prefer, and I would consider myself a basshead who likes a bit of...

    Aurisonics ASG-2.5 Review by mark2410

    Great review, an enjoyable read. I guess Ear-subs are a better description for these than earphones!     I wonder if the dynamic-only ASG-B have better isolation than these as they dont have a tuning port/vent?   Of course you will lose some of the good mids and treble you mentioned about...

    Zero Audio - ZH-DX200 Carbo Tenore | ZH-DX210 Carbo Basso (Carbon & Aluminium IEM) thread

    Finally got the Carbo Basso's and they are a great pair especially for those on a budget. Paid around £25 in total including tenso fees and shipping and they really do extend deep and can pack a large punch.   They do have sloppier/slower bass than I would prefer but then I have listened to...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

      I also like to test a headphone/earphone's potential, or headroom, with bass.   I have a pair of Klipsch X10 which were pretty good with bass impact and sub-bass quality, they dont blow your head off but will respond to EQ fairly well. However they will distort very easily when pushed with...

    SONY XBA-A1AP Review

    Can anyone comment on the isolation and leakage of the A1 and A2 please?   I prefer deep, big bass but I dont want to disturb others or be disturbed too much when on the train.   As I understand the A1 is fully enclosed whereas the A2 has a vent but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Sony XBA-A2 need help/opinion

      Can you describe the bass response of the A2 in a bit more detail please? Specifically is it more sub-bass oriented or more mid-bass oriented? Or is it just a linear response all the way down to wherever they roll-off?   I listen to a lot of hip hop as well but also EDM with deep bass; so...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

      Thanks mate. These are definitely on my radar as I read one of the reviews about a week ago and yes they do seem to fit the bill for us quality-seeking-bassheads.   But they're a bit pricey so I would have to save up (and go without food/drink lol!) for a while. I hope the Bassos will keep...

    Great thread! Thanks HBB for making it for us bassheads (and non-bassheads too!)   I am a basshead myself but I value sub-bass a lot more than mid-bass due to my music tastes of DnB, Hip Hop, Deep House and others. I dont particularly like V-shaped sigs due to the fact that I'm very sensitive...

    TTPOD T1-E Impressions thread

    Not sure how they will compare to the likes of your JVC Basshead cans but they do respond well to EQing and a bit of amping.   A word of warning though, I too am in the same boat in that when the mood takes me I'll turn on a bass boost EQ and flip the bass boost switch on my E18. I did this...
