Recommendation for a newbie - Page 2

Go with the M50... It used to cost $200+ and was decent value then, now it's just insanely good value.

I would order both and test drive them (V-Moda offers a 60 day trial) and return the pair you like the least.

^ x2 here.

It's hard to say which headphone you will enjoy--that's a subjective matter that only you can answer. 

Objectively, we could make arguments for which headphone is more accurate, where there's emphasis on bass, treble, etc. but none of that will be very helpful to you at this point.

 

I'd advise against the HD 25-1. I had one for a pair--it sounded great, isolated fantastically well, but it was very uncomfortable for me. There's about as many people who find it comfortable as there are those who don't, so it's quite a risk there.

Agreed, the HD25 has a lot of clamping force.

I ruled out sennheiser HD25 now. Thanks to your commentssmile.gif

I guess you are right about difficulty of choosing between the two. I think I have a bit tendency towards V-Moda. Because its specs seem more accurate to my needs and I love the style.

Unfortunately, I cannot afford to order them both. However, from this point on I don't think I am going to be dissapponted with my choice. Because both of them seem to be great cans.

 

I think I am going to order V-Moda M80. Thank you all for your informative and helpful comments.

I really want to thank you all for guiding me to V-Moda m80s. It is exactly what I was looking for. Perfect headphonesbeyersmile.png

 

Its sound quality exactly for my taste. I used it with my iPhone and laptop and I am happy with its performance. I have some problem with its comfort after several hours of use, it hurts my ears a little because of the pressure but it is OK.

 

Cheers :)

However, it is hard for me to decide which one to pick confused_face_2.gif and I could not forget M50s. So I am between these three. If i look at the price, M50s is the best deal. V80s are a bit expensive but I've read so many things about its fascinating sound quality. It's versatile. It can go with every genre. However, I've read some complaints  about its comfort and isolation which I think I can deal with. HD25 would be the best choice compared to others regarding isolation and comfort but it is the most expensive one in this comparison. I also guess that HD25s and V80s have similar sound quality.

 

Yeah, it is really hard right now to decide which one to pick...

If you want maybe a little more help, I hear that the M50s have some leakage, but nothing to extreme. I also have heard that the V-80s are just flat out amazing. So I am also very interested in these as well. Not too sure about the HD25's 

 

Good luck!

Glad to help and glad that you're enjoying the M80s.
