    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Awesome, glad you tried them out. That equalizer looks very nice!   I have multiple EQ presets for my SZ2K's, that just happens to be my most used. But even with those settings I can get the SZ's to maximum impact level while listening, but I do like to listen very loud at times which was why...

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

    A quick paper test vid I just did with my Mahogany TH-X00's. As you can see in the video, they are absolutely murdering the paper! I'm heavily boosting the sub bass via EQ, and driving them from my iFi iDSD on Turbo. I really think a lot of the bass is lost in transfer to the head from their...

    Here is a picture of my main EQ preset I use with my SZ2000's. I have many different presets, but I use this the most as it sounds best with my favorite genres of music (hip-hop/EDM). This preset also generates maximum impact, and pairs nicely with my iFi iDSD. What you don't see is that I have...

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

    I agree 100%, comfort with close to maximum bass is ideal. Which was why I bought the HM5 pads for the 700's in the first place over the M50x pads.   For me, I don't see myself pad rolling my 700's very often. That's the main reason I have the 55x pads on my SZ2K's instead of the HM5's. I use...

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

    I'm tempted to try the HM5 sheepskins I just bought and installed on my 700mk2's, on my SZ2K's. If it wasn't such a major pain in the a** to install them on the 700's, I already would have tried them on the SZ's. I picked up a used set of 55x's off amazon at the same time I ordered my SZ's to...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    I understand that many people may possibly like that change in signature, but I'm a full tilt basshead at heart so I like all the bass quantity I can get. I'm probably one of the few TH-X00 owners that would actually prefer MORE bass quantity than they already have out of the box. I realize...

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

    So my ATH Pro 700mk2's arrived today, along with the HM5 pads. Initial impressions are good, cans hit nice and hard without a doubt. Surprisingly they are able to take A LOT of power, they eat turbo on my iDSD no problem. Granted I do have my preamp turned way down on my EQ since I am boosting...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Every time I read about people swapping pads on their TH-X00's, I'm thankful for the fact that the stock pads fit me well. Sounds like nearly all the pads out there that will fit them seem to change the sound signature a decent amount. I really love they way they sound out of the box, so I guess...

    Audioquest sells the Dragontail, which is designed for the DF to connect to an android smartphone.

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    I own the SZ2K's along with a Dragonfly and can tell you the DF will NOT power the 2K's to pounding bass levels. Like vapman stated, you will need a more powerful amp to power them with. Something like the Fiio E12 or Cayin C5 will work extremely well paired with your Dragonfly. I paired my DF...

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

    Okay, after a full night of research I've narrowed my portable set down to either the ATH Pro 700 mk2 or Monster Npulse DJ. I may also pick up a pair of xb90ex IEM's to save the wear and tear on my 7550's. Anyone here heard both the 700mk2 and Monster Npulse DJ's? Since I'll be using these in...

    Bass cans?

    Another suggestion for the Fostex TH-X00, great headphone for the price. Has awesome low end, and respectable sound stage for a "closed" back. Technically they are semi open, which is why they have decent stage. I'm a basshead that still likes the rest of the frequency spectrum, and the TH-X00's...

    IEM with extended bass, low distortion, neutral signature (XBA-A3?)

    Highly recommend the Sony MDR 7550. Some reviewers have claimed it's treble is rolled off, but I find it very flat across the spectrum. Has excellent sub bass extension, and fantastic smooth mids along with solid treble. They are not super expensive, so it's worth a try IMO. They are my favorite...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    So am I pushing them too hard when they get warm like that, or is a little warmth okay? Just want to make sure I don't damage my precious 7550's, they are my favorite IEM.    And I have you to thank HBB for helping me discover them, thanks again for all the amazing work you do for the...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    Quick question for those of you with 7550/800ST, do you notice the IEM's getting warm in your ear with the vents taped when being cranked at full tilt? I ask because mine get pretty damn warm, and just wanted to see if that was common. I'm assuming it's because they are designed to be fully...

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

      Awesome info, thank you very much. How bout the mids and highs, are they very similar? I'm assuming they will still need some EQ work to get them sounding their best, which isn't a problem for me. And lastly, what about DEEP sub bass? My 2K's are the best I've ever heard in that aspect, do...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

      Agreed. I have 6 EQ presets for my SZ2K's, double the number of the next closest pair lol. But that is also due to the SZ's taking EQ like no other headphone I have heard. You can truly tune these via EQ to sound much better if you put in the time and effort to do so.    With that being...

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

    I know there is a specific thread for both headphones and it's probably been addressed in here before, but for those of you that own or have heard both SZ1K and SZ2K what are the main differences?    I already own and love the SZ2K, but the reason I am asking is I am interested in buying the...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    The SZ2K's love power, the E5 doesn't have enough to push them to their maximum impact levels. If you are looking for strictly an amp to power them to their max, have a look at the iFi iCAN SE. It is not a portable solution, but one of the best options for at home thump. Personally I have the...

    Best Set for Judging EDM Tracks? DT 880 vs 990 vs Others? Echo Audiofire 4 as a DAC/AMP?

    I've found "bright" is Beyerdynamic's signature sound. Most, if not all, of their headphones are very bright. My DT990's are the brightest pair of headphones I have ever heard. Not a big fan of listening to them at extreme volumes, as they can become tiring very quickly. But the "bright"...

    JVC HA-SZ2000/1000 Impressions Thread

    Well I have both the Fiio E12 and an iFi iDSD and can tell you the SZ2K's are such monsters that they eat up the extra power from the iDSD on Turbo without issue. They absolutely hit harder from the iDSD compared to using the E12. Obviously I EQ for proper basshead needs, but that was testing...
