Wanted to give my two cents after reading about you guys talking about the M100s handling loudness, overall tonality, bass rumble. I don't know if it's been brought up a few times already but coming from a DJ perspective, I am thoroughly impressed by how these things retain their sound through a set of earplugs (or VModa's Faders, specifically). The XL earpads wobble a hilariously fun amount when cranked up that loud, but the frequency response is as fun as ever; an E11...
bumping, reduced a lot of the clutter from earlier. Not 100% set on the Urbanites right now, some reviews give the impression that they do well on the low end, but not as much as desired for tracks with more involved low ends (liquid dubstep, hard trance, etc.). V-Moda M-100s are coming to mind as an alternative.
Looking to get something for daily listening, the Urbanite XL's have currently caught my eye but I'm looking for advice from other people perhaps more in tune with what's on the market right now :S. I listen to primarily electronic music, deliberately looking for a bassy, v-curvey sound with good soundstaging, something fun to listen to.   I used a HD25-1-II for awhile for DJ'ing and some Yamaha EPH-100s were my daily drivers for awhile. They were somewhat neutral, which...
Been awhile since I popped up here, and also been awhile since I bought a headphone. I've been using a pair of Sennheiser HD25-1-II's and Yamaha EPH-100s, more so the HD-25s since my listening habits have practically revolved around DJ'ing. It's taken me until now to realize that I should be having more "fun" listening to my music off the decks though, and that the HD25s in all honesty aren't good for that!   I'm looking for something around $100, ideally under $80 or...
@Tr1ppy, I think I'm talking about an elevated sub bass region. I don't have a good collection of headphones to really reference from, so I'm not too sure if that's what I'm describing, but comparing this with the EPH-100 it pronounces things below 100Hz or so much more.   For anyone else reading, to clarify, these aren't exactly the clearest IEM's I've heard. I'm tempted to say they sound a little bit muffled, but that's probably because the yamahas have a slight bump...
I've been running my DJE-1500s for a week or so now, and I am very pleased with them, to my surprise. The sound is, not what I expected to put it simply. I was expecting it to replace my aging EPH-100, while being my new active DJ headphone/monitor. I'm hanging up my pair of HD25's for this, the noise isolation and relative clarity of an in-ear monitor just makes more sense to me heh.   I'm running mine with some eartips I pulled off an inexpensive meelectronics bud. I...
bump   I've been interested in the SE315s actually. I've heard that the Shure's are a bit lacking in the bass end though, vs something like the TF10s. However, I'm also phasing out my HD25-1 II's which had a technical sound to them, i.e. not particularly bassy, but they would tell you if a track was bassy or not. Are the SE315's kind of technical in that respect?   Will keep them in mind, I'm deliberating from a DJ standpoint on whether I want a slightly bassy...
edit:: Took the jump on a set of DJE-1500s after deliberating for a bit. dweavers description made them sound too much like my EPH-100s too pass up heh.   I just lost one of the eartips to my aged Yamaha EPH-100s, but it was about time to replace them anyhow. Keeping it economical, staying under $200. I'm looking for something I'd use for casual listening. My old ones had a really nice 3D soundstage, and I'm looking for something that will do the same, if not...
Hi all,   I have a pair of yammy EPH-100's that are beginning to get old, and I might be looking for another portable IEM to replace their duty. I also do some DJ'ing on the side, so these might see use there sometimes too; the EPH-100s were suitable enough for that job actually.   I haven't kept up to date on the latest IEMs, so while I dig around, I was wondering whether anyone could help point me in the right direction on the way? My ears have been trained by now to...
I need to get a new pair of headphones for DJ'ing and general listening. I'm currently using a Monoprice 8323 headphone for DJ'ing and the nonexistent soundstage is really starting to irk me. I've seen people recommending the Senn HD 25-1 II's wholeheartedly, just wanted to see what other people had to say here!   Max I'm willing to spend is $200, preferably below. Sound wise, I'm looking for something with a strong low end and does well with vocals; decent soundstage is...
