I would say so. Good soundstage. Good rumble for bass. Comfortable.
They should work fine with an iPod.
yes that should work... tho e11 has abit of warm sound signature.. so it should help u in the bass department... i used e11 myself until i recabled my hm5 then I prefer the e17... but for stock E11 should work great.
How do these compare to the V6? I think I may end up buying them from jaycar for $70. Does it have more bass? and Does it sound more natural than the V6? (V6 is very artificial sounding and grainy)
What genres do you think work best?
Even though personally I don't think the HM5 sounded very natural at all, I'd say the HM5 would definitely sound a lot more natural than the V6, but then again most anything would ;)
The only genre I was disappointed with on them was more aggressive forms of rock, as these headphones are very very laid back IMO.
I'll have to agree with manveru on the HM5.
Can't say how they compare to the HM5s as I haven't heard the V6 before, but I have to agree the HM5s are not very natural sounding. They do okay at every genre for the most part, but they don't really do anything that well and they are very laid back and honestly a bit boring. For $70 they are good though.
I thought the V6 sounded a bit bright and grainy as well, the HM5 are natural sounding, I highly recommend them.
