I have experience with the monster miles davis, dt1350, vmoda m80, and the klipsch x10.

 

The miles davis is a sweet and smooth sounding headphone. No harsh highs no sibilance and a very refined bass and a nice soundstage. 

 

The dt1350 has this bass which is very tight but something I am addicted to. That tight punch in its bass is unrivaled by any of the other headphones I have tried. Also I am surprised as these being a closed dynamic headphone they have no driver flex no matter how hard they are squeezed :D

 

The vmoda m80 has nice bass (not as good as the dt1350), good mids (not as good as the miles davis), and has non fatiguing highs. Also I can say for the price these are one of the top portable headphones I have tried. If you can get a used pair for $130 these are a steal.

 

The klipsch x10's aren't as good as the previous 3 but they are fun and still better than most of the mainsream consumer headphones like beats,bose, and skullcandies. 

 

Also if you hate driver flex the monster miles davis aren't the best headphones. The others that I mentioned have no issues with driver flex. 

 

I will add that the m80's and the dt1350 were used with the fiio e11 amp (bass boost on 1). While the miles davis tributes were used with an fiio e5 (bass boost on).

 

I hate sibilance and you won't find much with any of the above. I think the miles davis was the best though since i really didn't hear any.

I have a set of M50's on their way as my first phile phones, my buying metrics were price/un-amped/closed.  I did hear that these shine even more with an amp even though it's not needed to hear the true song phrasing.
