The chick at 3:11 is so damn sexy with that bandana. Not sure why but the way she swangs her arms is hot!!!
^comment way down the list of all the lmao YT comments.
^I concur, makes me want to get up and dance/’swang’ my arms too!(look like a fool doing so>the Caucasian shirtless guy>rapper Mike Epps) for some reason, that overweight blk rapper reminds me of the Beastie Boys vocality??: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Z25qJZ1K8Q
I’m reliving my teenage years. If I was in high-school, I’d probably find this most appealing, but with Apple earbuds, you can see my TR eq settings, need full boost on that sub-bass to get the real effect of the low, low buzz, and also near full max volume, sounds ‘petite’ @50%. In the less exhausted/less expensive blk/Hispanic ‘hoods around Los Angeles urban areas(prob in suburban wht hoods also) you still hear/see those buzzing/annoying/tinny trunks vibrating in older rundown cars from the poorly installed subwoofer extravaganzas. Older minivan w/20-something Asian guys, used to drive around, and around, and around 6blks of my hood trying advertise their sm penises I guess w/their earthshaking bassmobile, what else they trying to impress for?
^u could be smoked out on this one w/o suffering ear damage, or more healthy vaped/vaked?
My True-Fi settings on this work quite well. https://flic.kr/p/2huk6dF
I used this wave generator to test my hearing range, best I’ve found, allows for very precise adjustment:
, since others would indicate I hear even less, and earphones are not capable of extended FR…with volume full on max, which you can’t exactly EQ for, I go to 13,100khz treble (12khz barely hit on other tests, very quiet…yet I still hear mosquitos like a death warning when they buzz near my ears…I have the smell of top grade Kobe beef blood to them, they will go to me in a room of people like no other)
Can Apple’s earbuds really go down to 20hz or slightly less, barely hearable with max volume? Or is that just all harmonic distortion, as another headphone test claims???
Remembering the good ‘ol days of the 2000s (raves were popular in illegal warehouses in LA’s dwtn area bck in the 90s) when I knew this Korean-Amer female who loved dancing @clubs, was a DJ/Trance radio lover, I recalled the monotonous bass beat. Almost forgot that, but now…if I were vaked on cannabis for my severe PTSD from watching both my beloved hero/angle mom die suffering at the hands of piss poor healthcare delivery system(not trying to get political), was excruciating for my father to see as he was also dying slower from metastatic prostate cancer, then watching him suffer in different ways, my sheer exhaustion both mentally/physically trying to save the both of them over 2+yrs…ugh, will never get over that completely bc it’s very likely the same will happen to me & you. But I digress, vaked + trance, didn’t think of that….I’ll try that, lower vol. + monotonous sub-bass may just be the ticket to get to sleep, when I can’t stop thinking about end-of-life suffering/endless misery/memories/flashbacks.
Regular ‘electronic’ as opposed to pure trance-like: Not too bad, I can listen for a short while
So does that define me as a basshead, and if you can EQ the hell out of many DD (maybe some subwoofer BA’s like Legend X…though those supposedly already have plenty…have’nt read about that particular track with LX^Trunk Go Bang). Can most earphones/headphones be called ‘basshead’ if they EQ well to that, or do they manifestly have to be excessively bass heavy un-EQ’d to the point of being very unbalanced where the bass overwhelms upper frequencies, or what some would call ‘over the top’? My limited experience with Stax Lamda’s in the late 80s/early 90s? was that Dire Straits track Brothers in Arms CD, 1st major DDD recording if only to DAT, had a very pleasing deep low bass line. But that was after I heard that song in a sound room for an car audio installation store that had a wall of 8 12” subwoofers giving a real physical sensation, wicked stuff!
I am perhaps not ‘audiophile’, I’m the keeper of the faith in low-fi resolution audio, stuff you can’t get anywhere else but youtube & the like.
I read that crinacle & antdriod r supposedly bass centric guys, but what do they listen to, probably not what I’d call ‘basshead’ tracks by my standards. Which I why I don’t’ really have a good idea, what a ‘basshead’ is…seems as wide a topic as there are musical genre :_(
And then come all the arguments about which headphone is a ‘basshead’ or great sub-bass…thinking Audeze LCDi3’s I heard, which must have been a faulty pair, being demo’d…but wait, others where listening to the same pair & got completely different hearing than mine, how is that possible, did someone before me blow out the planar drivers, both of them? But they got really loud with Hugo2, just sounded lousy…poor seal I was getting, I don’t think so. Guess I need to go back in a 6mo or so, and listen again…confused/mystified?
Listening to Spotify: Pure Trance Radio Podcast with Solarstone <cannabis & that monotonous beat will put just about anyone into a comatose state J
Was mentioned in a head-fi thread for electronic: deadmau5, ‘here’s the drop’ album-listened on Spotify. More in line with deeper sub-bass, but still that ‘trance’ like sound puts me to sleep if I keep the volume down + cannabis. For that type of music you need to be a in club @high volume w/flashing lights & dancing to the sounds to get it, + high on ecstasy/and or life.
But if I wanted that kind of ‘energy’, and the ‘drop’ , my go to is Sabrina Boys remix…that buzzing crazy bass, without the spacy club sound :0
Not sure if there’s a lot of distortion in the recording, but I can’t play this track on Apple’s buds at louder volume bc the bass just breaks up from distortion, can’t polish a turd even with True-Fi, whereas Bose QC30’s do well on this one, no EQ required as they are V sig to being with. No soup for you, no basshead for me w/Apple’s buds L.
Was mentioned as a favorite of someone here: Sigur Rós - The Rains of Castamere (Game of Thrones Season 4)
Pacing just too slow for me(same for that award winning series), I need more energy…and too many high-pitched female singers in Sigur Ros songs, might as well listen to Bjork.
When I want to be in relaxed state, no bass…I need strings, Asian themed, guess you can find hi-res of this,
But not this one-does not exist Not for the faint of heart, resolving cans, really poor sound/static @beginning, but oh that ehru, pierces my soul, completely different from watching the ending credits of the Last Emperior.
When I want a slower paced track + angelic voice female singer, I always go to this, perhaps the DVD has higher res mp3? Can only find 192 kbit/sec from 2005 Korean Drama I watched on MBC Los Angeles, best K-drama I’ve seen, better than any US TV programming, outstanding writing, might still be avai from MBC via DVD(English subtitles but no guarantee, probably worse than fanbased translations), but MBC is vigorous in copywrite. Only avail to view via net, with fanbase English subtitles- from servers in IP rights ‘free’ China.
OST- A Man and a Woman (Secret lovers)- Kwon Oh KyungDong hwa sok eh suh
hmm, can’t get underscore to take in this post, rt after OST- should be OST-_A so link doesn’t post up correctly.
^As typical of K-drama, tearjerker, tends to put me in tears though, miss my angel/hero…last two words sung in Korean: “good bye” Seems to sound better on the download, than streamed? I like some of the other tracks on the OST, but they left out the one brief/truncated rap song(takeoff of DiNiro’s famous taxi driver mirror scene: ‘you talking to me, wtf r you talking to’) somewhere in this typical 20 episode series that I don’t have the patience to try and watch all the way though, since not all epi are available via one server in China, vids repeatedly stall out…arrgh, , damn it> I got’s to know!
True-Fi ‘studio’ correction reduces clarity of her voice, drops brightness, must be that 8k spike in FR graph? Must turn off TF on this track.
More pacing &punchy ~50-60hz bass? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_yBUfMGvzc
Deorro - Five Hours (Static Video) [LE7ELS
If I need N. Euro female, I’ll take the singer on Alan Walker + shuffle dancers, bass is over the top(Elements really blew it on Walker’s ‘Alone’) boomy, but I still like it…or maybe just for the view of shuffle dancers?
You want a track for rumble, real deal rumble? Find me another version of this adapted quadrophonic that sounds better, I searched and found versions on YT, none sound as good as this one, FLAC/high-res?> point me to it!
old-school hip-hop that makes you want to get up and dance?
^ still Dre instrumental also excellent.
Very low fi, including video resolution, pre-digital, but I love this one, always makes me smile, better than the orig by the beach boys: Sign post ahead, to the sunshine zone. All about musicality to me- without that, no smiles, no need for DSD/high res.

For timbre on cymbals, I go to Alex Van Halen on Jump, when he stops them by grabbing them. Clean bass drums, must have TF on max bass boost, @3:03 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwYN7mTi6HM
Deep bass beat+ sax, works for me : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TToLgW7zuc
