Well, I just destroyed another pair.
They were half-way decent, too. I'm afraid to venture past the USD$100 range if I'm only going to destroy those, too. Maybe my DSP settings are too high.
Could be but on a good set it will be physically painful to have a bunch of bass pumping... you think your brain is going to blow out of your eye sockets!
The sennheisers I have go down to 5hz and hooked to my Denon HT reciever you literally cant handle it hurts so dam bad after 5 minutes you are ready to scream!
It also feels really weird like your head is in a microwave or something besides the pounding from the bass your head feels like it gets hot LOLz
I'm talking REALLY loud... loud enough that someone in the same room cannot carry on a normal conversation with another person the sound leaking from the phones is that loud even across a room!!!
