There is absolutely NO bass on these. The highs and mids are definitely pristine. But the lows are non/existent.
The bass on these are neutral, but if your ears are tuned to Beats, I guess these could be considered as bass light. For many people, myself included, there is plenty of bass on these.
These have very good bass when compared to other open-back headphones. But you need a good amp for the bass to be good
Go buy some Beats bud. LUL.
Run them from a headphone amp. If still absolutely no bass, then get your ears checked. There might be a medical problem.
If u go check innerfidelity's HD 650 measurement these have a massive impedance swing in the 500 ohm range in the lower frequencies, in short, these need lots of amp power to sound their best.
Historically Open Back dynamic Headphones pretty much all have a massive roll off in the lower bass. As being mentioned, proper amplification will help but it is a compromise a lot of people accept. Planar headphones reproduce low bass better in general but need even more amplification. Those are classic in term of tonality but they are also old tech somehow. The Elex is an open Back dynamic driver and do much better in reproducing content under 100 Hz. You have to pay considerably more for them tough but you might save a bit on the amp, they are much easier to drive them to their potential. @Jackula No they are not neutral in the bass, they are rolled off FR graphs don't lie!
If FR is your reference, no headphones in the world have a perfectly neutral bass. FYI power doesn't guarantee more bass quantity, but in general it does give better bass control.
Hi, I agree with you, and of course there is more to what the FR Graph says, but still, The HD-6xx are about 10 dB down at 30 Hz (that's the lowest note on a piano) and about 7 dB down at 40 Hz (the lowest note on a Bass Guitar) That is music right there, I'm not only talking of sub bass. No headphones are perfectly neutral and that is not what we necessarily are after but some certainly do better under 100 Hz! Its not to diss the 6xx they are amazing headphones. I own and love them, but saying they are Neutral when it comes to bass is misguiding. No offence to you I hope
Correct they are not bass boosted or bass cannons which many are used coming from non audiophile cans like beats or bose stuff.. these scale up with high quality amps especially OTL or SET tube amps
Give them time... try them for a few months with a decent amp and then go back to your bass heavy cans...u may have different opinion. I have alot of headphones, amps and dacs and by no means do these have NO bass as you say. Best to say IMO these have no bass ;)
