Help me choose between Fanny Wangs 3000 Series V Beats by Dre Solo (HD) - Page 2

post #16 of 39

Just had a thought - if you're really looking for style, you might like these a lot - the Phiaton MS 400. They're excellent for their price, have great, full sound with excellent bass and, of course, they're sexy. http://www.amazon.com/Phiaton-MS-400-Carbon-Headphones/dp/B001EUE6AK?tag=duckduckgo-d-20 They run circles around the Beats and Fanny Wang a thousand times over.

well it took me a few months to start liking the vmoda look but I will probably come up with a few more ideas later but what comes too the top of my head are the shure srh840, audio technica ath m50 (sound professionals removable cable variant and comes in 3 colors), and the aiaiai tma1 but the bass could be considered overwhelming with them.

Thanks for all the great advice!

I was browsing the V-Moda site and fell in love with the Nero LP design, i looked into them and found they lack sound quality compared to the LP2 and M80, but when i went back and looked at the M80's i actually quite like them!

Thanks for all the help i think i have settled on the M80's :D

There good headphones but I think the m80s sound better, I would get the m80s and a shield kit or wait till the m100. theres also the aiaiai tma1 but I don't think it sounds as good as the m80

How about the hd25-1 II do you like how they look? They're excellent in sound and very portable.

They have a bit more bass, but it punches less. It's more of the rattle bass than the punch bass. That being said, it doesn't really sacrifice much clarity. Like the M-80, they were very, very surprising when it came to sound quality when they hit. Most expected them to be muddy messes like the Beats. But they sound great for most genres of music. The M-80 are just a little bit better in each area, but the fact that these are circumaural do give them the edge in comfort.

I wouldn't recommend the Aiaiai TMA1. They just don't compare to the M-80 or the MS 400 in any way. They're good, and certainly a good supplement, but they're too dark and too veiled for most. They have impact, but then they cover up a lot of the fun aspects of music that traditionally sounds great with bass.

Definitely made my mind up on V-Moda! :D

Just need to figure out which would be better for the gym M-80 or LP2??

The LP2 would be better for the gym since they're not supraaural, but they're significantly lower in sound quality.

really? I don't go too the gym but I thought the m80 would be better because they are smaller and lighter.

Why not just wait for the M-100s to come out, where you can get the best of both worlds? That's what I'm doing, anyways.

I'd advise against the PRO700mk2 unless you are willing to go an extra mile to make them better. They can be incredibly uncomfortable unless you put cotton under the pads. However, if you mod them correctly, they are comfy, attractive, portable, ludicrously bassy, and so durable you could run them over with a bus and they would be undamaged.

 I can vouch for the Ultrasone HFI-580.  Great bass oriented headphone.  Definitely has the slam.

You'd have to have a pretty small head, honestly. The pads aren't very good for staying on your head even so.
