I have been listening to my M-Audio Q40s for about 2 weeks and they are almost amazing. I say almost because there is significant sibilance with certain tracks, even after burning in, particularly newer recordings with female vocals like Ellie Goulding and Mya. The mids and highs on these are awesome- close to neutral, clean and fairly detailed for the price ($120). The reason I am posting here is that I LOVE their bass- awesome punch and depth that feels controlled and never bleeds into the mids. These headphones are the best multipurpose cans I ever heard- excellent with every genre- rock, pop, hip hop, even soft rock. My question is this...can anyone recommend a headphone with a similar sound signature, killer bass AND that isn't sibilant?
I have even tried EQ'ing the treble down and it didn't eliminate the problem. I'm wondering if there is anything like that currently on the market or should I take a deep breath and wait to audition the Sennheiser Amperior and VModa M100 when they are released?
