Are the VMODA M-100 Bassy? Plus other headphones

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello Head-fiers

 

I have waited until the release of many basshead cans for me to write a question thread and I'm currently interested in the Sennheiser Momentum, the M-100 and the MDR-1. Does anyone have any feedback regarding their sound quality? Since probably everyone in headfi already knows what headphones i'm comparing it to i'm not going to bother to mention them. Thanks guys!

Heya,

 

None of them are what I would consider "basshead" headphones. They're merely slightly warmer than neutral headphones.

 

If you want bassy, consider:

 

Beyer DT770, Beyer DT990

Ultrasone HFI 580, PRO 750, PRO 900

Sony XB500, XB700

M-Audio Q40

Vmoda LP2

Denon D2000/D600

AudioTechnica A900X

Shure SRH750 DJ

 

Very best,

Psh, you crazy? the M100's are fart cannons.

 

They're good fart cannons though, and there's nothing wrong with that.

They are not fart cannons. They're good headphones that yes, are  warmer tone towards bass. and not to mention you could literally run them over with a car and they would live. V-moda's are really good for electronic music so I would go for those (regarding bass). But no one can beat the sony xp-500's in bass

... just... no. 

 

Have you not heard of the Audez'e LCD-2? The Beyerdynamic DT1350? 

 

God, even my Pro/4AAA has better bass than the XB-500, and they're almost 40 years old. The XB-500 is VERY bad; the low end is muddy, boomy, and sloppy, and bleeds into the other ranges. Not to mention they have no detail and sucky treble.

He was obviously referring to bass quantity/impact/power which XB500 is hard to beat at. Quality? NO but it does a decent job for the quantity it packs and for what it costs, could be a lot worse.

The 4AAA is absolutely thundering. It has lots of slam and impact while still being detailed and controlled. They go for about $50 on ebay.

 

That's not the point anyways, he also forgot the XB-1000. Or the XB-700.

Not sure how much this contributes, but I found the XB1000s to be very muddy when compared to my DT770/80s.

The LP2, Q40 and MK700IIs look interesting.

They're probably not the best option if you're mostly looking for bass.

yea well the xb-500 is/was a legend, and it's still frequently talked about, so obviously there must be an appeal to the headphones

Legend? Not sure where you pulled that statement from. Perhaps your posterior region?

 

Frequently talked about? So are Beats, doesn't mean they're good. The M50 is talked up a lot too, and most of that is hype.
