Joggers: V-Moda M-80 Crossfade vs Sennheiser HD25-IIs

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I regularly run with my headphones. IEMs are horribly uncomfortable for me. I sweat a lot. I had the HD-25s for over a year and they were great but they were recently stolen. I really enjoyed the clarity of them but found the soundstage a little lacking and I wanted a bit more bass. 

 

Would the M-80 be a suitable can for Joggers/runners? Will it hold up to huge amounts of sweat the way the HD-25s can?

PX100 works excellent for running in my experience.

The M-80s fit on your head while jogging and do have nicer soundstage than the HD-25s.  But they do have a cloth headband, which might get stinky over time with sweat...you could probably wash it, but it's not 100% ideal.

Just to clarify, before I got the HD25s I used Porta Pros for years and they were terrific. I would probably like the PX100 because I liked the Porta Pro but I wanted a higher end can.

I can't believe you would take either for jogging (where you admittedly sweat a lot). This seems really over-the-top to me. Have you considered a pair of headphones with the behind the hand band support? This keeps them from falling out. I tested out a few pairs and ended up with the PMX680's from Sennheiser/Adidas. They work great. The only con (and this is major), is the cord length is not optimal. They are relatively cheap, at $43.

Heh, this is HeadFi isn't it? The HD25s don't have any cloth and are more or less bomb proof for sports. They also have a solid clamp and sound terrific. I just want something that sounds even better. ;)

Soundstage isn't exactly an M-80 expertise.  If that's what you're looking for, you may need to look elsewhere.

The M-80 is still better than the HD-25s in that regard though.  Aren't gonna find any portable headphones you can jog with that are much better.

OP wants to go running with studio headphones on -  so why not?

Nope, sorry...I love my M80s, but soundstage isn't my #1 priority.  :)

Another worth looking at is the Beyerdynamic DT1350.

I've been using my m80s for jogging regularly; 3 months and I haven't been experiencing any effects of sweat. :)
