Hey guys, been reading this thread all day. Looking to get some good sound quality headphones. Not long ago i want to say about three months back i picked up some klipsch One at best buy for 99. To me they sound great, but not as good as id like. I recently bought a fiio E11 and the sound quality is a lot better with the amp. Ive heard the Image ones have a lot of bass, but to be honest the bass doesnt bother me. I tried to find reviews comparing the image ones to the M80s but no luck. I saw that radio shack carries V-Moda headphones so i decided why the hell not maybe they have them in store. I took a drive and they only carried the LP? version but the chrome accents werent attractive, they were on sale for 99 which was tempting. But i passed, the chrome accents were an eye sore.
Any how i decided to try amazon on the M80 but theyre a bit pricey. I went ahead and looked on ebay. Looks like i found a pair for 179.. Hoping theyre not fake... based on reviews it doesnt look like theyre fake. Now here's my question. How do the M80's compare to the Klipsch Image one, Grados 325, Grados Sr80? I love the clarity of the grados, my friend let me barrow his 325is and wow blown away, but they did lack the bass i enjoy. Im not a bass head but i like nice clean bass. Which i felt was missing from the grados. I was going to pull the trigger on SR80s based on how high theyre rated. Just to get that clarity and sound stage. Well today i looked on this site and found that the M80s are highly recommend, and they look nice as well. And i see theyre compared to the HD25, and also the AT M50s. Which are two headphones i always hear people talk about in forums. Based on the positive reviews i read today im hoping the M80s will give me a smile from ear to ear when i receive them.
