V-Moda Crossfade LP2's

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am coming from in ear Atrio MG5's with MG7 drivers.  Total crap for $120, they have good bass and mids but the highs are twice as loud.  I can't listen at the volume I want without fringing from it. I asked a few days ago about trying some headphones for a change, mostly in the $150 range.  I got a few recomendations for the LP2's and they seem good so far.

 

I am a huge "bass head".  I wanted lots of low and mid bass, and the highs to not sound like a dying cat.  Will I be disapointed with these?  I listen to Hip hop/rap and rock.  I listen to anything with a good beat basically.  I want the bass and mid bass to have a nice kick to it, like you can feel it in your head.

Heya,


I found the Crossfades to have fairly harsh treble.

 

Mabye consider:

 

M-Audio Q40

Ultrasone HFI 580

AudioTechnica A900X

 

Very best,

Thanks, I'll look into these.  Still have the LP2's in the back of my head.  When you say crossfades do you mean LP1 or LP2?

Anyone else?

I really like the LP2s. I haven't noticed the harsh treble that MalVeauX mentions, although I don't have them at the moment (loaned to a friend) so I can't verify it right now.

 

As for bass, there is more than enough. I mostly listen to bass-heavy electronic music, and find it great. Hip hop is also really good. Only issue I have is that bass drums might sound a bit loud, but that's just personal preference.

 

I haven't heard many other 'basshead' headphones, so I can't confirm if they're better or worse than other options. With that being said, I still really enjoy them.

I guess im kinda late here,but I own the crossfade LP2s and I can say firsthand that they r amazing headphones. I am VERY happy with these cans, bass is amazing, but it doesn't overpower the highs or the mids. Look pretty Freaking awesome too. I listen to mostly Dance music and Rap, and they work perfect for both. I highly reccomend these 'phones.
