Nice taste of music thumb.gif Never thought that I would come across these names here, let alone by someone based in Canada. In my office setup I use the Shure SE846's iem's, and if I need to let of some steam I play tracks like these biggrin.gif

@WhiteWulfe, wow, that is some serious comparison work there biggrin.gif . Can see a lot of crossovers with my library thumb.gif . eg KMFDM, old Linkin Park, Pendulum, Rammstein, Combichrist and Grendel.

Going back through some of my aggrotech (all using lossless files) on the HD650s now and I think I need a bigger, fuller amp to fill in that bass smile.gif . The HD650s seem to excel at anything acoustic, orchestral or anything sampled. So far a lot of electronic stuff can come off sounding a little off on the FiiO but its possible that the original music was simply mastered for a different type of headphone smile.gif . I've come across plenty of music that just sounds better on floorstanding speakers and subwoofer to provide that physical thump that EDM needs wink.gif .
Lots of text! (Click to show)
This observation definitely applies to Harsh Generation but seems a little less so for their later album Timewave Zero (you can get their stuff from Infacted Records on Bandcamp lossless thumb.gif ). Timewave Zero feels like it was mastered very differently compared to Harsh Generation and sounds nicer on my current setup. Its a very different track for them, but Deep Waters seems to shine brightest in terms of sound quality right now.

For something very different coming from Combichrist give Bottle of Pain (Mass Edit) a shot (be careful with volume as it starts with a bang), the instrument samples sound the best I've heard so far compared to my other headphones/speakers. The title track on What the **** is Wrong With You People? really needs more bass to round it out (as I expected). The clarity of everything else happening is great, just needs more "oomph" but this is one I normally listen to on the big speakers. The track They on the album Making Monsters is probably the best sounding on the HD650s that album as there is a lot of openness of sound during the chorus that sounds great . Just put on All Pain Is Gone from Today We Are All Demons and the driving beat is great but everything seems to get congested in the chorus if I'm too enthusiastic with the volume dial (there's a lot happening in there)... I think this is the DAC/amp but will need other equipment to confirm wink.gif .

KMFDM sounded just fine though I suspect this could be the product of Metropolis Records remastering efforts smile.gif (checkout out their Bandcamp page, they have a lot) . Of course I threw Anarchy and Megalomaniac in there for testing biggrin.gif .

Rammstein's Engel feels like there should be more bass in there (can check later on the subwoofer) but no issues with instruments getting lost or muddy, everything was very clear and spaced nicely. Same observations applied to Du Hast.

Straight up DnB seems to fair a little better with the current pairing when playing B-Complex's Beautiful Lies and London Electricity's Just One Second (Apex Remix) from Sick Music: Volume 1.

Thanks for prompting me to go back to some music that I haven't played again in a while smile.gif .

All of this reminds me... it'd be nice if my Valhalla hadn't died on me (twice now - once silently and the other in a spectacular flash after self replacing the dead resistor) so I could get that bass back biggrin.gif . Tempted to get a FiiO E9i or another more powerful amp in the interim (Bottlehead Crack is still my proposed endgame headamp).

You should try a decent iem or ciem with this bass heavy music. I got two floorstanders each with two bass drivers and 2 12" subs (peerless xxls drivers). With the Shure SE846's I do not have the idea that I am missing out on the low end, it is like you have a subwoofer in your head biggrin.gif

I haven't had a lot of experience with IEMs beyond basic Skullcandy, Apple Earpods and simple Sennheisers. I know the Z reviews guy on youtube is keen to expand into IEMs for VR.

The iem's do block the sound around you very good, so it would make VR a more immersive experience. I have a Oculus DK2 at work but so far only tried it with normal headphones.

Check out Noble and JHAudio for some great high end IEMs. Also belive it or not UltimateEars(the Bluetooth Speaker guys) makes some great IEMs on their Pro side.

While the Noble K10 and JHAudio Roxanne/Angie are more than most will want to spend even their less expensive balanced armature IEMs sound great. Though the bass comes alive in their higher end products.

I believe you're correct tongue.gif. I fully plan to join that club some day biggrin.gif.

I feel the same about my Triple.fi 10s. I still have yet to find a full-sized headphone with that sound signature. It'd truly be perfect in a full-sized 'phone for me. I think the Stax are very close in that aspect for me.
