Honestly maybe you want to see if you can stand its poor comfort. It's like putting clips on your ears though I have yet tried the big bowl pads of the gs1k and ps1k

I think the most used word in this thread is M-100.

I was actually going to post of the exact opposite of this. I have been reading almost every post like from 2 month back to help with my headphone search. It is not that often mentioned, but I don't complain because for an average consumer the price is nevertheless slightly steep. In fact, IMO, for an on the go, bring it everywhere and drop anyhow type of cans this is like the best of the best other than maybe the sig DJ and pro and Ed.8 which prices are astronimical for most lol

Maybe I'ts just me. My eyes scan every post for M-100 or Signature DJ.

Usually, when people come in here asking for some advice it's usually the M-100 if their funds support it. If not, then pro700mk2 or q-40. That's the way I've been seeing it.

I tried out the gs1000 and the rs1, and I found the rs1 more comfortable. The gs1000 has rougher foam material for an over ear, while the on-ear rs1 has a more tolerable foam. Both are pretty uncomfortable, though, since the foam likes to scratch your ears a bit. Their bass performance is very poor too, since the earpads don't seal around your ears at all.

 

Anyways, why hasn't anyone been recommending the V-Sonic GR07 Bass Edition? I've seen a few posts of people choosing it over the FXZ200 and the XBA-4/40.

Nah, it's probably the XB500. ph34r.gif

 

But yes, the M-100 is definitely one of the poster boys for the basshead club. It's got a pretty decent overall package - excellent bass, good overall sound, and great build.

Never heard them, but people have said that they can be sibilant. It's nothing a quick eq can't fix, though. As far as bass performance goes (quantity/quality), it's probably a toss up between the two. Don't quote me on it, though.

They are comparable regarding bass with the PRO700MK2 and I prefer the Q40's more neutral signature compared to the dark MK2.

I'm more concerned about comfort since both headphones have detachable cables.  I can't stand my DJ1 for more than two hours before they hurt both of my ears.

The Q40 is definitely more comfortable than the stock PRO700MK2, but you can purchase ATH-M50 pads for about $20 which will fit and are a significant improvement in comfort, although there is still a fair amount of clamping force.

The pro's headband is aluminum inside, so you can bend the crap out of it if you want.
