Would I be crazy to buy these when I already joined the fostex th-x00 drop. These seem to be more base heavy but frequency starts at 10 instead of 5.. Iv also got the beyerdynamic 1350.. So I consider these as a good way of dealing with the bass heavy part of my music collection?
The TH-x00 are the sweetspot for bass cans, these aren't even close.
I'm in both drops. I see them as very complementary to each other. The AKG will fill in the places where I'm not bringing the Fostex. The Fostex with it's hard wired cord, and gorgeous but easily damaged wood, will be relegated to the listening chair.
These are pretty much neutral. Some bass but just enough to not sound boring. If you're after bass, these are NOT it..... If you want bass-heavy headphones you should go with the TH900, or even a set of the cans from the Audeze LCD series. There's a whole list of bass-heavy cans here: http://www.head-fi.org/a/the-best-bass-headphones-a-head-fi-wiki
There also closed and cost twice as much m8...
They are twice as much, but if people are looking for the bass, these do have some. The TH-X00 are semi open, but the warmth and the soundstage are just fun. I got some of the very first k7xxs and they are nice, the enhanced bass is nice, but comparing it to the DT880/990, even x2s for the same price there's no comparison for bass. I'm just saying, people shouldn't look for these to have bass impact if that's what they're looking for when it's "increased bass response."
