No, doesn't really feel V-shaped. The subbass is more palpable than the treble.

These are getting really nice now...:ksc75smile:

I've had MH1s for some time now, and love their sound signature. I haven't heard a headphone with matching details, I can compare them to my roommate's HD558s.

 

Now, I've gathered some cash and am looking for an upgrade. I want a similar sound signature but with a biit more bass, a bit more punch in the mid bass region. I love the sub-bass on the MH1s but i'd like something that has a bit more impact. Also, I hate peaky and shrill/harsh treble.

I listen to mainly EDM and some Pop/Rock and a bit of Bollywood. I've found some headphones I like but I can't narrow down:

-Sony XB90EX (These seem to mostly fit the bill based on user reviews but I'm still not sure about how the mids and detailing fare.)

 

-ATH CKS-99 (Couldn't find much on these except that they're similar to the CKS1000 but less refined and have a warmer signature in the mids, which I like.)

 

-ATH IM-50 (The cheapest of the three, this one's been making a recent fuss over the forums and I'm liking what I'm reading, however still dunno whether the bass would be an improvement over the MH1s)

 

-DN-900 (While the 1000 is far too expensive for me, this baby 1000 looks to fit the bill quite nicely)

 

-Denon C-300 (These seem almost perfect, but the peaky highs scare me, also the fit looks a bit odd. Look like alien antennae)

 

-Monster Turbine Pro (Descriptions of these almost make me drool, I like how the coppers look too...golds not so much. But too expensive everywhere I find them frown.gif )

 

Any more recommendations?

I have the mh1 and the Monster Gratitudes are a significant upgrade in every aspect: detail, imaging, etc......and I think you will love the bass (one of the best attributes). A $300 phone that has been discontinued and now can be found for $60. A ridiculous value at that price point!

^ i wouldn't put too much stock on the MSRP esp. since it's Monster who is infamous for selling overpriced crap. But i don't doubt those Grads are good sounding though. Just another great option for an upgrade to the MH1Cs is the Zero Audio Bassos (very airy, big staging with extended treble, with good mids, yet have big full deep bass as well), cuz they have a VERY similar sound/ presentation to the MH1Cs if you want more refinement that don't deviate too much from the overall sound of the Sonys.

 

The Sony XB90EX has more on the conventional "basshead" sound signature but it's mostly sub bass focused, big, full sound/ staging that is nonetheless very balanced. A true audiophile basshead iem no doubt. Mids, treble, bass you get it all in a very bold presentation.

I've been reading on the C300s as well. They've dropped to $70 and they seem pretty competitive. Any thoughts on those?


^ Oh almost forgot to add that some like me have experience pretty bad driver flex on the Bassos so..... just a heads up and tip rolling is a must if you do experience driver flex.

 

No idea about those C300s saweee. :  (

I'd skip the Basso's and go for the Tenore's. Also the C300's are a downgrade to the Gratitudes. Either way, Bosso's and Tenore's will be a nice upgrade.
