Here is what I set out to do: buy the best closed cans for under $100. I found the V6's at a local store (Fry's) for $79. When I put them on I was astonished at how much I loved them. They were driven easily from a portable, sounded even better through my home system, and had great bass extension. I then purchased the Sennheiser 280's from amazon, but it took while for them to arrive. So I was really loving the V6's and pretty sure I would return the 280's. Then the 280's arrived and my initial thought was that the V6's were better because the 280's did not have the bass that the V6's had and they were harder to drive from a pcdp. I was all set to return the 280's when I started hearing the great soundstage that the 280's have. Now I am torn between the bass extension and punch that the V6's offer (with no soundstage) versus the 280's mote transparent sound and greater soundstage. I really do like them both, but I can only keep one. If you were my headphone therapist what would you suggest I do?
