    I'm still hesitating between getting a Shanling M1 or the AK 100 MK2 to use it with the Mojo as a transport. Which one should you suggest if anyone of you have one or both of them. Thansk

    works great as desktop.  you know a better dac anywhere near the money, let me know.  i think the only thing that is going to beat mojo's output is hugo 2.

    ODAC + O2 looks like excellent value.

    Bass headphones? 
     
    There were also Pro900 from Ultrasone which everyone seemingly enjoyed as basshead headphones (?)

    Extreme basshead headphones with the goal of getting ultimate bass impact via EQ, amplification, and pad swaps.
     
    That JVC is #1 in that thread. (Ultrasone isn't even in the ranking.)

    Mojo wont make the JVC pound, Best bass headphone is the B&W P9 plus it has top notch Treble and soundstage.

    The extreme bass impact comes primarily from EQ, particularly bass boosts. (And using different pads.)
     
    All the electronics need to do is amplify it cleanly without distortion. The JVC has an impedance of 16 ohms and sensitivity of 108 dB/mW. That's extremely easy to drive. You do need much more power than usual when you boost the bass to extreme levels, but even then, the Mojo is faaaar more than sufficient for that.
     
    Read the thread I linked to in the post above. The JVC beat everything else they've compared it to for bass impact capability. (After EQ.) There's no way the headphone you mentioned could come close in that respect.
     
    Obviously you can equalize the other frequencies too. There's no point buying this one without using EQ.
     
    Anyone who wants to read more about the headphones can do so here.

    I had it, so I experienced it. The P9 is a lot a lot better. They also talk a lot about modding the jvc to get the bass.

    Did you boost the bass to extreme levels with EQ? That's the entire context of all this.
     
  11. jmills8
    Ofcourse, but theres more than the bass issue.

    Okay, but just to be clear, I am not talking about overall sound quality; I am talking about which headphones are capable of the hardest-hitting bass impact. I already have an HD 800 for audiophile-level sound quality. And, as I mentioned, you can equalize any headphone to tweak its frequency response. This is a fairly common practice even for the upper frequencies in basshead headphones.

    most deepest and hard hitting bass is the B&W P9. It has more bass than the JVC.
