I am currently using either my skullcandy ink'd (old version) or sony mdr-zx300. I have also bought a Fiio E11 with L9 cable for my ipod classic.

 

Im looking for something that sounds awesome but i also need good sound isolation and low sound leakage, as i have people that work within 3~5' from me who I dont want to disturb.

 

I've been reading a few reviews on here and I think Im headed toward the V-moda M100. I don't have a huge budget (considering that cans can go $1000 and up) but the V-moda M100 are as expensive as I'm going.


Perfect, go for the M-100- great bass for rap and hip hop; good range for rock; excellent vocal presentation for soft rock.  They are the best basshead all arounder you will find in your price range with decent isolation.  I own the $1,000 headphones you mention and the M-100 is a very respectable backup for those at 1/3 the cost.

Some of the reviews point to its strong, but not terribly overwhelming bass.

 

I have heard a lot of bass heavy cans, from the Sony XB series, to JVC's XX cans, to all of the Beats headphones, and even headphones like the Skullcandy Skullcrusher. It'll be very intriguing to find a headphone that delivers anything beyond what the heaviest hitters can, and yet maintain a semblance of audio fidelity.

Indeed, the XB 700 has no feidelity only bass... I'm decding on selling them [as my eBay sale fell through, had to refund... buyer was though he got a xb 1000... didn't want to fight with some one who can't read english -.-]  so I have them once again... they are all bass, but I'm sure with some EQ they might have some fedility!

Does anyone know when the extra large pads for the M100 will be released? I posted this question here as the M100 is a bass monster, lol.

JVC HA-M5X for the price it's hard to beat but seem to need a lot of power to operate, any amp suggestion?

I have the Sony MDR-ZX300 Red, I just find that they have a lack of bass and distortion a lot when you try to give more power. Is it just me or it's normal.

Thank you

Daniel

That is normal for those, get a set of XB500's they will take all the Bass you can throw at them.

Hello, I am looking for headphones with good bass, deep, extended, with the TmID not annoying. it is important that the sound is warm, dynamic and enveloping.

I connect the headphones to my old mp3 player, the Creative Zen.

I've already tried the AKG K518 but I did not like, with the volume up, volume was still low, and low were not enough.


To the sound that I seek, what do you think of the Sony V55, Sony XB500, and Jvc ha-s500?

Hey guys, i currently have the ultrasone hfi 580, and im thinking about getting the pro 900. right now i'm stuck between that and the vmoda m100, with a used d600 also crossing my mind. 

 

I'm hoping there are some experienced bassheads who can help me out? Thanks guys :D

I have the Pro900 and the D600 and the M-100 arrives tomorrow.

The Pro900 is a major basshead phone - absolutely love them and they handle whatever you can throw at them with no distortion. Same with the D600 so in my opinion you would be happy with either of them from a basshead perspective. I'm interested to see how the M-100's measure up to the other two.

It has been some time since I have listened to the PRO 900 for a bass comparison, but I believe they are comparable regarding bass.  One thing I recall distinctly is the shrillness of the highs on the PRO 900 to the point of unlistenable and am certain I vastly prefer the M-100.

Currently on amazon.ca I can get the XB500 for $76.97 or the XB600 for $79.99 which one out of the to its the better deal?
