The thing is that I tend to eq a lot, and I'm really bad at this but I feel the bass becomes a little bit less present making them a little bit more neutral. It's very subtle thought, I mean, the bass drops like 1or 2db or so which out of a boost of 8 is like... nothing. XD
first listen, burial's untrue (always a good barometer for headphone quality). fit is fine so far but as i was afraid of these are pretty strained by my gigantic head. not nearly as bad as the m-80s though. bass surprised me as i assumed it to be emphasized but more subtly. still it seems pretty well controlled and not loose and melting into everything all over the place. title track is beastly. good sense of space/positioning though. i'm bad at judging soundstages but so far it doesn't seem too odd sounding and pretty wide open. surprisingly good detail as well.
my ears aren't QUITE as trained as others here so the differences between this and the m-80s aren't immediately evident besides the reverberating bass and the surprising micro-detail. time will tell though. midrange (vocals) don't see as compromised as everyone made them out to be.
this may be the start of a beautiful friendship :)
e: do all vmoda headphones have these weird bumps on the top side of the headband about an inch or two up from the plastic wings/whatever they're called/where the arms extend out? it's very subtle but noticeable (if you're feeling it)
