    Welcome to the Basshead Club !
     The topic of this thread will be on everything basshead related including bassy music, basshead gear, etc.
    Thread OP is currently going under re-construction to separate warm headphones with high bass headphones.

    Warm headphones list:
    Hifiman HE400
    Sennheiser HD650
    High bass headphones list:
    Sony XB300, XB400, XB500, XB600, XB700, XB900, XB1000 and XB series IEMs
    Old thing will be preserved here:
    Heres a list of basshead headphones, the idea of these lists was suggested by SoulSyde.

    ------> An updated version made by Malevolent with a full price list can be found here. <------

    Note: Not all of these headphones are worth their retail price, for example, the Beats Pro are generally thought of as $150 - $200 cans

    Note2: Not all headphones have the same amount of bass emphasise, it is recommended that you use measurements, reviews and listening to determine whether a headphone has enough bass for you

    You could probably count me in. Blame the LCD-2's delicious bass texture.
  3. wind016
    Count me in!
    The best bass combo that I've heard so far is an Ultrasone HFI-580 and a Cowon player. It has all the bass I'd ever want, but I wonder how a ZO would sound like in a home rig.

    im in, Cowon J3 with Hippo VB (planning on getting the IE8)
    can't stand bright headphones
  5. Parall3l


    Agree with you on that [​IMG] dark and bassy is how I like it [​IMG]

    Definitely in.
    Head-fi needs a Group thingie... fo srs. 
    My basshead cans are Senns HD438. Modded, dampened, friggin amazing for dub. 
  7. sulkoudai
    lol, how cool would it be if there was a profile picture that says we're this group, like a gang tattoo......
    ....just being immature....
  8. Nick01
    I think I'm a basshead (a moderate one) [​IMG]
    I sold all my bass light cans such as: Beyer T5p, AKG K701 & K702 & K501 & K271, Audio Technica AD1000 & A2000x.
    I recently sold my Ultrasone pro750 because it sounds funny to my ears, but I do acknowledge its bass.
    Right now I have the following that I would consider headphones with very good bass: Edition 8, JVC DX1000, Grado GS1000i, Grado RS1 with flat pads. All 4 completely different flavors of bass.
  9. Parall3l


    Interesting idea, something like putting the picture of a subwoofer driver in the corner of every basshead's profile picture would be epic.
  10. koolkat
    Or better yet, a custom title underneath our usernames.
    Basshead Certified or Team Basshead, etc. 
  11. Parall3l


    Something like BASSHEADUS SUPREMUS would be cool as well [​IMG]

    That idea is actually brilliant. I'll put a mini treble clef at the corner of my dp someday. [​IMG] Reminded me of gamers with clan tags. 
  13. sulkoudai


    we definitely need to do that, with a link to this thread like the OP
  14. sulkoudai
    then we should rename this thread to 'The Basshead Club'
    lol, then someones gonna make a 'The Treble-head(?) Club' and there's gonna be 'club fights' everyday on head fi
    johnny2762 and ookic like this.
  15. Parall3l


    It's done. Personally I like the name basshead club better than my original title. I'll work on an official club symbol or something like that when I'm free [​IMG]
