M-80s will be better for EDM IMO.
post #1937 of 2748

Just a heads up, M80 in shadow are currently going for $157.12 on Amazon.  Get em while they're hot!

Great deal ^^

I love my M-80's...after a month they sound better than ever. I'm favoring them over the  Sennheiser HD-25 II's I have...

 

But I have a question...does anyone know anywhere that will make a pad that to replace the pads on the M-80's? I looked all over V-Moda's site and they only offer replacement pads for LP...

Strange, if I were you I'd contact customer service. They should know and I'm sure they have spare pads somewhere.

My M-80's just arrived and with no burn in, I am really really impressed. The bass is obviously prominent (are all portable headphones tuned this way? People do listen to other genres besides rap/rock on the road, right?). What impressed me the most was the mids and highs. I am not constantly listening to classical or genres with lots of emphasis on these frequencies but if such a track comes up on shuffle, I want to HEAR those instruments. I am blown away at how balanced this sounds (albeit slightly weighted on the lower frequencies). I assume this only gets better with burn in.

It does get better with burn in.  As the earpads adjust to your ear, it will begin to tighten up the bass a bit :)  I've very pleased with the M80s.

So am I. What impresses me the most is the balance, decay of the instruments (very natural IMO), and the fun yet detailed sound. The bass hits hard yet has great detail and those mids are beautiful.

I think I'm about to buy the M-80s (probably in white). Does anyone have any purchasing tips?

 

I've seen mention in the past of coupons on the v-moda site that bring the price in line with some of the bigger e-tailers. Do those come around with any frequency?

post #1946 of 2748

My purchasing tip, if you are willing to go with black, is to buy from Amazon. They dropped the price $20 in the past week. You can get it for ab out $150 right now, which is a steal.

post #1947 of 2748
Agreed ^^ although I have been enjoying my white pearl M-80s today in the city. I'm not one usually for white headphones but these are just gorgeous in person. Seriously classy. The black ones are badass in an industrial way as well but the white pearls just look like royalty.

Have been listening to my new pair for a fair bit..  As much as I want to like them I just can't.  For some reason the mids sounds extremely veiled to me, even compared to my incase sonics they are nowhere near as lush or smooth.  I've had M-Audio Q40s and Ultrasone Pro 900s at different points in time (not anymore) so I don't think it's just that I haven't heard nice cans.  Maybe I got a dud?  They just don't sound like $150+ dollar headphones to me.

Give them time to break in.  Reposition them on your ears as well.  Both of these allow the sound to change and can make a mids a little more forward.

Ya, there's gotta be something going on there.  Even fresh out of the box the mids were one of the strong points of the M80.  Maybe they are pushing that little flap on the font of your ear too far inward and blocking off sound?  Not sure...definitely not trying to be condescending or anything, but it really sounds like something is amiss.  Did you find the Pro900 to be lacking in mids as well.  I haven't owned them but have heard that.
