Of all those the M-80s are most suited for your genres. EDM sounds amazing on the M-80s. Just my $0.02.

thanks for the reply,are the m80s better than the sennheiser hd 25 II? i will be using headphones a lot so how are the m80's in terms of comfort?

"Better" is pretty arguable.

The HD25 has better isolation, and more sparkle in its treble, though it can get fatiguing at times. Though I have not heard the M80, the general consensus is that it is a bit treble recessed. The HD25 isolates better, though I'm pretty sure the M80 will be more comfortable. Both are extremely well built.

 

So you are choosing between a V-shaped FR (HD25) and one with a nice low and mid end (M80). The decision can fall either way. I'd recommend you find a way to audition both if possible. 

 

Good luck! Cheers!

Agreed with the impressions on the HD25^^

OP I find your genres more pleasing on the M-80 because of the lack of fatigue I get from them. Also thy have a wider soundstage while the HD25 sounds a bit congested. They're both detailed, good headphones but I'd take the M-80 for your genres in a heartbeat.

If you're looking for better isolation and a wider soundstage however another option is the AKG K181DJ, which I consider to be in the same league as the aforementioned headphones.

To add to this thread, how are the Crossfade LP2 compared to the M-80?  Personally I love around-ear headphones over on-ear.  On-ear cans make me feel like I'm not wearing a legit, badass pair of headphones.  Weird, huh?

Like to know the differences between M80 and HD25

The LP2 are not too respected around here. You may as well wait for the M100.

 

For HD25 vs M80 comparisons, please see here. I have never heard the M80 so I'm not really qualified to give the not to either.

Thanks for the replies smily_headphones1.gif I have the crossfade lp1 and it's bad,really bad mids but bass is incredible. Is the m100 going to be a significant upgrade from the m80's?

How does the akg 181 dj stack up in terms of comfort versus the vmoda? And will an amp be necessary? I will be using the headphones with an iPad and iPod touch 4g.

From what I understand, an amp is unnecessary for both headphones, but I'm sure you'll get better sound quality using one.  I highly doubt it'll be a huge difference, though.

The k181 scales wih an amp but is not necessary. As for comfort the M-80 is the most comfortable supraaural I have ever had the pleasure of owning. It's also more portable than the K181, which can be slightly bulky in comparison.
