I have come for what I 'think' is my last headphone purchase....
Anyways, I was wondering how the V6, HM5, and M50 compare. I have the V6 I just want to sidegrade to a phone with a little less bright of a presentation than the v6 and maybe more bass. The V6 tends to come out harsh, a little grainy, and very sibilant to me. I currently own Koss TBSE (ProDJ100's) which are fine. I tried the Sennheiser Amperior yesterday at the apple store and thought it was very sibilant too! Is that weird? Loved the bass on it though.
As someone else described to me before, I guess I'm looking for a can with very good bass and mids, but with highs slightly recessed and not harsh at all.
I listen to mainly electronic (Synthpop, Dance) and a tiny bit of rock.
Thank you for any suggestions/advice you have for me.
EDIT: Leaning towards a basshead can, something similar to the bass of the amperior (a little less), and very nice mids.
I haven't heard the HM5, so I can't comment on that. To me, the V6s sound a little thin in comparison to the M50, although the mids on the M50s are a little more recessed because of the extra bass. Definitely better bass on the M50.
Also, I think that a lot of electronic music has problematic treble. In other words, it's often not the headphone that's causing the sibilance, but the quality of the song's recording. So for me, the detail of the V6s, along with it's brighter sonic signature, makes that more obvious.
