NO

Not really a fan of "brown" headphones. Also the Velodynes seem way bigger than the M100's. But if they sound good I guess that's what really matters.

 

I was almost sure to make the DT770-80 my next official basshead cans, but now I'm leaning more and more towards the M100. Hopefully by the time I decide to buy it the price has gone down a bit....at least $225-$250.

IMO, M-100 is superior to VTrue and every Beyer I have heard.  In fact, the more headphones I audition, the more I appreciate how special the M-100 is.  Perfect sonic balance to my ears.

The more I listen to these headphones, the more I like them. These headphones remind me of the LCD-2's that I've heard, especially in the midrange.

Hey Craigster did you
Get around to testing the ZO in high gain with the headphone out jack?

First impressions out of the box (my first impressions usually don't change much after extensive evaluation)

 

Portability:  They are heavy and bulky, plus they do not fold.  My M-100 feels feather light after wearing the VTrue.  Their weight feels comparable to Beats Pro.  Build quality is top shelf- solid aluminum and plush leather.  Since they were fresh off the UPS truck, the thick metal was very cold.  I had to search for plastic on this headphone and it is only around the dual cable inputs.  Cables are high quality cloth and seem relatively tangle-free.  Despite size and weight, they are reasonably comfortable.  They are very cool looking in person and feel luxurious.  VTrue is driven reasonably well from my Iphone and responds well to amping.

 

Sound:  These are clearly basshead cans.  Bass rivals my M-100 in terms of quantity and quality, maybe even a little more punch with VTrue without being boomy.  Mids are detailed and are also comparable to M-100 and UE6000. Mids also seem more forward. Highs are noticeably rolled off compared to the M-100 and even slightly compared to the UE6000, but not as dark as something like the Aiaiai TMA-1 or some of the Pioneer DJ headphones.  I would say these are excellent sounding headphones, but I need more time with them to determine if they are for me.  I consider my M-100s to be my go-to, multi-genre audiophile headphone even though they have been categorized as basshead cans.  I am actually looking for a secondary quality basshead can and will see if these meet my needs over the next few weeks.   If you are looking for a basshead can with deep, tight bass, good midrange detail and don't mind rolled off highs, you may want to check them out.  If I had to compare them to another headphone sonically, I would say they are a classy, improved ATH-PRO700MK2.  These have a luxurious feel that you don't experience with synthetic materials and Velodyne didn't skimp on the build quality.

 

700

 

Thanks Craig, I was really interested in this.

I did and still much prefer double amping with my E11.

Alright after hearing this I think I am going to get the Fiio X3. It has the E17 amping chip in it so I hope it pairs well when using the HO to ZO

ATH-PRO700MK2 with the ZO2, any comments?

I listened one more time to the M50, i was fascinated ... Some songs really show its true bass power... And others just have sensed bass, maybe not ear punching bass but really beautiful and i call it really controlled. I will buying these for sure :-) Thanks for the help Craigster !

They're a great set of entry level cans for sure. The M50 is a jack of all trades, master of none.

Thanks, I hear the XB 1000 is SLIGHTY better in the highs, although the highs are sibilant on the XB sadly

hahah, with teh fickle S-logic and uber brightness... I see why ppl spend $300 to buy those... then another $xx +hours to mod out the terrible of it lol

 

Still hoping to grab a DT 990 soon! 

post #3780 of 11204

any particular reason why the audio technica a900x isnt on either lists of basshead cans? i ask because im looking at headphones to get in the (probably distant) future and these are pretty high on the list to consider, whereas they arent even mentioned in this thread... ive read reviews claiming these are 2nd only to the denon d2k for sub bass...is it because no one has tried them?
