Ultrasone HFI 780s or V-Moda Crossfades?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Which would you guys recommend? Ultrasone HFI 780s, or V-Moda Crossfades? I was also about to put Beats Studio, but they are not worth the money and I heard that there are better options for that price (such as the 780s). I just recently heard about the Crossfades, and they definitely look hot especially how it's almost a hundred bucks cheaper.

These are the things that go in order of priority:

1) Clarity

I am crazy about audio quality. It's like whenever I listen to music on Youtube, I HAVE to put the video to 480p or 720p. I just love music and I truly do feel it.

2) Bass Response

Not the most important thing, but I listen to a lot of trance and sometimes dubstep so a great amount of bass would be great, just not overpowering so I can clearly hear the highs, lows, and mids.

3) Comfort

Also not the most important thing. I mean I've tried some Sony Super Bass Headphones and the Dres and man whenever I feel the earcups OhhHHhhHh. Still, I am just using a $15 pair of Skullcandies and my ears do get sore, so I don't really mind the comfort as long as it isn't any worse.

4) Looks

Not very important. I think it's cool to have a nice pair of headphones to look at, but I don't ever plan of putting headphones into my daily fashion anyways.

Main uses:

- Definitely for trance (mainly uplifiting trance like Above & Beyond, Suncatcher, etc). I have to listen to it everyday and I don't think these Skullcandies would really bring the true feel of the music.
- For monitoring. Of course with my love of trance, I got to DJ it, so I do plan to use them for DJing. 

So which would you guys recommend? Thanks.

Crossfades may have serious construction problems. Read up on their durability over time.
