Me too. I'm set.

 

BTW 

Saw your modding of the 770...very very nice work!

Incredible clarity through the synths and psy trance effects as well. Colombian Necktie Remix was ******* insane. Really good imaging. Soundstage isn't crash hot though, but I'm coming from KEF X300A for my rock/metal listening.

 

Next week I'll receive the TH600 and see who stays or goes. Comparison coming soon.


Awesome! I've been pondering for days over which one of those two to get so i'm looking forward to your comparison. I currently use the Ultrasone Pro 900 and if you've heard it i was wondering if you could possibly give your opinion on how the bass on the signature dj and th600 compares to it. Thanks!

Despite the gimmicky marketing techniques that aim at the population that has no idea what a driver is, or what it does, or how big an average driver is for that matter, they still are now on my list for cans in going to buy. So far on that list #1 Sennheiser HD 598. #2 JVC HA-MR77X #3 M-Audio Q40 #4 V-Moda Crossfade M-100 #5... Don't have one yet. :/

Question - are the Senn 598 basshead phones?

I seem to remember him mentioning that he's half audiophile half basshead.

That's my expectations, minor mids/highs improvements & some more significant soundstage/imaging improvements but maybe not the hard-hitting thumpy bass I can feel (that still sounds nicely textured) of Q40. We will see. 

I realize I post this on the 666th page, hope that's not a bad omen. lol

let me ask you 2 questions:

 

what pads do you have on your q40  

what song for you would be a good example.

Where'd you order it? I read it was 117€+ship on amazon.it in January, current price amazon.co.uk 155€ seems "too much" to order now lol.

Well preliminary report...I have been testing the Sens Momentum (M-100 should be here today or monday) and I guess I AM a basshead cause I just dont find satisfaction on that thin sound. Yeah I can get some nice bass with some songs if heavily EQed but since I listen to such different genres of music, some of it is very light on bass and I cannot make them come alive with the Momentums. I dont see myself being able to enjoy music as much now even though some areas are clearly better than my Sony MDR-X10 so my hope is that the M-100 is the middle ground between both sounds. :)

I was looking at the M-100s and the Momentums when I was in the market about a year ago. I tried out both of them, and man were the Sens ever nice. The quality feel to them is just great, and their earpads are really soft. But the sound... Just like you said, I just couldn't find any satisfaction in it. I moved on to the M-100s and then A/B'ed them and the M-100s REALLY came out on top. They've got great bass.

 

And now 1 year in, I'm still loving them. They've got great slam and you can often -feel- the bass, not just hear it. They've also managed to hold up really well going back and forth with me every day on the subway. The folding feature is fantastic. Besides the Sen earpads being thicker, for me the M-100s came out the all-round winner.

Yeah the Sens look very nice and in fact I wanted to like them after getting them but then I would be forcing myself to listen to certain music that steals sound fuller not so lean which is not what I wanted. Oh well, at least now I won't have that thought about "WHAT IF they were a better choice". :)

Absolutely, I've still got a few of those "what ifs" kicking around that bother me to this day. The Sens vs. the M100s though, luckily that's not one of them :-D

 

Good luck with them when you get them. Also, if you do get a chance, try hooking them up to an amp, it opens up the soundstage a bit more and gives even fuller bass. When I'm at home I use my portable with the M-100s and it sounds great.
