I'd go for the Soundmagic PL11- even if their SQ is not as high as the HD381's. Why? They are more durable and easier to wear.

I have heard all the models from your list, except of SM ES18 and Superlux HD381F.

Still, I like a lot the HD381B.

And yes, the 381 has greater bass impact, but the same time is little agressive, while the 381B is more mellow, but also has good bass impact.

381F is good overall. More fun and engaging than 381B.

381B is thinner in that its more distant and laid-back and resolves bass quicker which is what I prefer for metal tracks for those quick double/triple hit attacks

381 is the opposite in that its thicker, closer and slower, to me its nice for simple vocal tracks like smooth jazz, and can get intimate presentation, and although bass is huge but it's sloppy and loose, and becuz the presentation is closed up it would get congested on complicated tracks

So for the 381 series the which is better the 381B or 381F which would u prefer?

or the 381F is much better eh? coz i listen to different kinds of genres like dubstep or classic but i like more metal.

 

does the 381F have good bass?

I've had the HD381F for a couple of weeks now and I'm over the moon with them.  Great bang for buck.
