Slow news day eh...
The v6s don't have a low frequency roll off. Quite the opposite. They sound decently balanced until something triggers the sub-bass then they're bothersomely bassy (to me).   They are a great bargain at the price but the sudden boominess at very low freq is probably why I won't end up keeping them long term.
  If by record vocals you mean listen to themselves while singing (tracking), they can use absolutely any closed-back headphones for that. In fact, you might use something with stupidly exaggerated bass on purpose to make the singer think they sound better than they do and get them into it... Or patch them into a signal wet with lots of EQ/reverb that isn't actually going into the recording side.   In summary:   Most artists do not mix their own music. In fact, almost...
  The M50s are $112 on Amazon and the M40s are $49.81 so that's a $2.81 discount heh. Not a bad price but definitely not "Free M40s".
Nothing super flat under $100.   You could get the NVX XPT100/Brainwavz HM5 for $100 for a while (one on preorder, one with a coupon code) but I'm not sure now. Mine were quite flat sounding but also conjested/nasal sounding. Still worth it for the $100 deal. They are the same headphone with different logos and earpads.   Other than that the SRH440 might be your best bet.   I have the KRK 8400s at the moment and I wouldn't use the word flat... They're...
Still think it's strange how the same company that makes the SRH840 and SM58 and is often criticized for making things too heavy-duty and military-grade came out with the 940s which seem to disintegrate within weeks of ownership. Maybe they took the criticism a tad too seriously.
  Yes, and that is why the best looking headphones are gigantic "Step, aside, I'm wearing headphones, PRO headphones" types. Just like the coolest sunglasses are big "Step aside, I'm the guy in sunglasses" aviators and the coolest machine guns are those with lots rails/vents/pointy stuff all over them. If you take something inherently dorky and flaunt it then it magically turns cool.   "Sleek gadgets" are for the timid.
If you're listening to bass so loud that your vision is literally blurring then you are permanently damaging your hearing. Despite not sounding as painful as loud, piercing treble, it actually causes hearing damage as or more easily (perceived volume vs actual SPL). I know pro audio people who were having "fun" with bass and a couple days after the ringing calmed down had a severe throat infection + permanent hearing loss.   No offense meant, but that's basically the...

As bad as Beats are, they seem like a pretty perfect match for the compressed monotone bumph bumph music Dr. Dre produces... It wouldn't surprise me if he actually does use them.   When I say I Beats are unlistenable for someone looking for headphones for opera and jazz fusion in a leather chair after work with some bubbly, my opinion is probably valid, but come on...  BUMPH BUMPHHH  pimps/hos/etc is a whole different story.   *Sits at a traffic light when a...
