I really think you are talking two very different headphones. 'Better' is a relative term - if one suits your musical tastes better than the other, does that make them universally 'better' ? This isnt the same as 'HD201 vs HD800' - obviously, most of us would spend the money to get the quantum leap in that instance.
You need to be clear on what it is you are after, and dont be afraid to admit that you want pumping bass if that is one of your priorities. Too many on HF, IMO, seem compelled to list a bunch of 'audiophile' wishlist traits like PRaT etc - nothing wrong with that, but it can lead to some wonky recommendations.
