got the XS yesterday and very impressed with the sound. Isolation is great, but leakage is a bit more than I'd like. Best sounding V-Moda headphone to date imo, but of course, that's my opinion.
Really on the fence about these..........I want to love them sooooooooo bad because of the custom shields and durability. But V-Moda's whole line of headphones have a really bad, closed in soundstage when I compare them to others in that price range and below. Is the XS an improvement there or pretty much the same soundstage as the M-100?
Marshall Major FX 50 sounds better than the M-100 for half the price. Better soundstage to my ears than the M-100, Absolutely brilliant sounding headphone.
Momentums have a better soundstage than the M-100's. M-100's have more highs and can also get a bit harsh at high volumes, but have more punch for your harder genres. I don't really like the Momentums for rock and rap to be honest, but someone else may feel differently.     I don't think of either as an all-rounder type of headphone; M-100 when you want to bang and Momentum when you want it smooth. 
You do NOT need a DAC. The Galaxy Note 2 sounds HORRIBLE coming out the box. I heard no clarity and instrument separation at all. I looked around the net and found these settings helped tremendously:          Of course you can make changes as you see fit, and the E11 will work fine, but if you don't use these settings or something similar your phone will sound terrible.
Marshall Monitor has a great soundstage for a closed back headphone and will leak almost nothing. They also have great extremely clean bass:    http://www.amazon.com/Marshall-04090800-Monitor-Over-The-Ear-Headphones/dp/B00D3ITOHG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375011140&sr=8-1&keywords=marshall+monitor+headphones
 I would say Lynx Hilo or Prism Lyra. Both have pro quality D/A though so it may be overkill, but they are the best sound quality you're going to get. 
   That's always been my pet peeve about the Sennheisers-595, 600, 650........the soundstage has always let me down. 
  I have the Schiit Magni and Modi and both drive the HE-500's easily. However, I'm using a European Objective 2 power supply so maybe that's helping. The HE-400 has an even lower impedance (35 ohms) than the HE-500 (38 ohms) so I think you'll be ok with it. They are both (Magni and Modi) very powerful.     The HE-500 is so much better than the Sennheiser HD600 that I don't think they belong in the same discussion, but maybe because I've had so many pairs of 600's...
    The Mixrs are my go-to DJ headphones but for extended listening I find them very harsh in the highs and mids. If they're not for professional use I wouldn't recommend them.
