It's actually a tough call and comes down to personal taste.  I pefer the M80's vocal presentation and clarity, but was surprised in a good way by the DNA.   Most Radio Shacks have the M80 for demo and they are on clearance around $130.

I listin mostly to rock and i like a slightly bigger bass. Nothing close to beats bass but a tad bit bigger than normal. Based on that which would you recomend?

The M80 then.  The bass is sooo good on the DNA if you prefer that sound sig, but that would be mostly reserved for hip hop, r&b and dub step.  I've had both at one time or another and I just liked how sensitive the DNA was when plugged directly into a source.  The V-MODA needed a little more volume to push it whereas the DNA had plenty to spare.  Both are fantastic, but the DNAs bass is probably a touch too slow for rock music.

The DNA is a really good headphone for the price from my experience, but yeah the big bass is probably a no-no for rock music. I thought they were far more comfortable to wear over the M-80 though.

For anyone interested, here are a few pics of the M-100 Matte Black w/ Midnight Blue Shields.  I think they look really good, but also love the matte black, so I will be switching them around from time to time.

That looks sick. Where can you get those blue shields?

Thanks I think they look really good.

 

You can either request them as your extra (free) shields when ordering m-100's directly from v-moda or you can order them separately from v-moda for $25.  Here is the link:

If anyone out there is in the UK (or EU, I guess) and looking to sell their M-100s, let me know.... I have monies I can send your way.

I got my Sony MDR-1RBT yesterday, I am still getting used to them and to be honest, the first impression was disappointing a little bit, but I am learning to love them more and more. I should have already listened to them like 7h on them right now and... dang, these things are comfortable. What surprised me more was the bass punch. I wasn't expecting such high bass boost. They are completely different than the M-100, but I think I won't regret the change.

Personally, I wasn't that impressed with the 1RBT.  The standard 1R though, is a different story.  The 1RNC is a good NC headphone.  Not the best sound otherwise, and WAY too expensive.

There's definitely a difference with the v-moda but at least I can wear them more than 15 min, and they are wireless, which is an extra. I still want to audition the mdr-1r thought. If they are good, I'll get those as well.

For home I have other stuff, but these are a great portable.

Pretty much exactly what I said.  The exception though, is that Tyll thought they were all $100 cheaper than they actually are.
