Vmoda Crossfade LP or Beats by Dre Pro?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm considering between the two headphones, I don't know which has better sound quality. Since the Beats is more expensive, it doesn't mean it delivers good sound quality, I think we just pay more for the brand and style. Can you help me to evaluate the sound quality of the two? I'm very into bass quality. Thanks a lot

This actually directly compares the two, along with some others

EDIT: Sorry, wrong model... But still, this should give you a good idea of what they sound like.
also, http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/433318/shootout-76-portable-headphones-reviewed-pioneer-se-mj5-ultrasone-hfi-15g-added-04-07 reviews the Beats Studio as well

In the end, why not get something like the Sennheiser HD25? Or the ATH-M50s? Or the Shure SRH750? (I can go on if you like...)

if you like "heavy" bass....I tried out the Audio Technica Pro700 gold edition at a shop recently versus the Beats Pro.  The AT-Pro700 sounded just as heavy but had nicer-sounding bass.  If the gold color is too much, they sell the normal black version.  Some people might still like the Beats Pro because of the design.  The metallic look + good-looking earpads do attract.

You should consider between 2 others.... just about any 2 others really.

Maybe the guy likes the aesthetics (god forbid) of those two particular phones, regardless of how bad they sound or how overpriced they are.

the beats pros are not that bad actually, how many of you have actually tried them? its true they are over priced but i still think they are worth at least $250 for what you get, personally i would look at the shure srh750dj, better sound for a better price, and it looks good. if you insist on those 2 i think the beats pros are ok, though keep in mind they sound muddy, and distort at high volumes. maybe they just need more power but i highly doubt that.

Cool with me bro, I didn't call him stupid or anything, so place your outrage elsewhere. May he have the asthetics that he seeks. He was asking for opinions, I stand by mine.

 

The money he is potentially willing to spend on the Beats Pro (which unlike many, I have owned and and familiar with), could be spent elsewhere in terms of sound quality and asthetics, but as you are clearly well aware, it's all very subjective now isn't it?

 

As far as those 2 in particular go... the Beats Pro sounded much better to me. However neither is worth the asking price, by a long shot.

 

Is that better Jerg?

I have once tried both in a headphone store, the Crossfade is not comfortable for wearing long time (my head is quite big indeed). They sounds worse than the Beats Pro (with both amped). If its direct driven, each have their own signature, though none are of my taste. I better go for the AT-ESW9 or ES10 which pleases my eyes and my ears with the same budget

Guys, what about sony xb1000? The Beats pro and the vmoda are overpriced.
post #12 of 23

Agreed with the XB1000 for bass. Ultrasones are also a good bet if you want something more versatile.

So xb1000 and pro 900, which one has better sound quality and comfortability? I dont mind the design
post #14 of 23

Pro900 for the quality, considered to have the best bass.

i thought the xb1000 was better, it's so surprising that the xb1000 is a lot cheaper than the Beats Pro but it brings better sound quality than the Beats Pro
