I’m looking for closed back bass heavy headphones under 400$. Most headphones I try either lack bass or they have enough bass but they sound horrible (beats). I’m looking for something that sounds really nice and has a lot of bass (I listen to edm, pop, rap). What would your recommendations be? Excited to hear from you!
Posted in the other thread but check out the v- moda crosfade m-100 masters.
Audioquest Nightowl, Used Denon D2000/5000, occasionally used EMU Teak or Fostex THX00 Mahogany. Meze 99 Noir, Final Sonorous VI, JVC SW01, Sony Z7M2, used Argon.
I would recommend trying the, Meze 99 classic’s I personally love my pair. Not only do I think they have great bass but also sound amazing not to mention they sound good with an amp however even plugged into a phone music sounds great. They definitely don’t require an amp to shine.
Am considering getting some 99 Classics too
Was also looking at the Fostex 610 but I can’t find much info about it
Can’t say enough about the bassy ness of the headphones mentioned here.
To throw another option out there DT 770 [Closed] and DT880’s [Semi open] with a pad swap to elite velours is bass cannon stuff.
Thank you all for amazing recommendations, I’m currently leaning towards Crossfade M-100 Masters but I did hear they can get a little uncomfortable.
Would you recommend I go for Meze 99 Neos instead? I heard they have more bass than the classics and have a more “fun” sound. I love my krk rokits and I’m looking for similar sounding headphones.
I’d say the original vanilla meze 99 is fun enough already
Yeah looking at the frequency response curve (which I know, you can’t rely on but it does tel you a lot) seems a little bloated in the bass. And if I read on meze’s own page it’s the classics but with an unhealthy scoop of bass on top
Bit overkill imo
I have the original V-Moda M-100. They are uncomfortable with the original pads, but the masters pads are definitely better. When I used similar pads to the masters on my M-100, I remember them being comfortable. I think the only complaint and not sure if they changed this over the years was the pads got a bit warm. I haven’t tried the Meze 99 Classic/Neos, but from what people have said, both M-100 or Meze are potentially good options. It really depends on how you like to hear your bass.
Honestly I’m kind of a basshead so I’ll take as much bass as I can get without sounding too muddy. Apparently Neos have more bass so I’m leaning towards them.
I’m choosing between Denon AH-D5200 (360eu) and Fostex TH-610 (500eu). Do you think these will satisfy my basshead needs? Should I save up and go for TH-610s or is the difference not worth it. Which one of these has more bass?
5200 will, and it has more bass than 610
I just got my DT 770 250 do you think the bass difference is substantial enough? The pads would cost me 50eu.
Yes beyers are some of most sensitive to pad swaps of any headphone
