Ok, probably 300th time the question has been asked, regarding at least two of these (third being d2000 if I can find it). I know I'm overthinking from reading reviews from people who probably have much more experience than me so try to sink to my level.
My experience: HD280's. Love them, people say they aren't too sure about them, but for the price, I was amazed. Upgraded, got the DT880's a little while back, they are flat and bright as some say. I thought i would get more of a punch from the DT880's being half closed/open, but their studio sound is what I know now as something I need to avoid. I'm in this for metal/rap/dubstep mostly, with lots of other genres. I know a lot of headphones wont compliment metal and bass heavy music at the same time, but I like more bass in my music, as long as the mids and highs are still present, they dont need to be prominent.
My first big question, can anyone compare the highs on the DT880's to the Pro 900? I can handle the DT880 with an EQ but a better idea of what I'd be hearing would be nice.
Which of these do you think I can get hte best deal on vs their performance? It's either the bass heavy Pro 900 (how well can the bass be reduced with an EQ for certain times?) the possibly flat but maybe only when comparing HE400s, or the highly liked D2000s
recap and other preferences:
-detachable cable wanted
-portability and durability issues arent my worries, I stay inside with them
-Getting a Fiios 10 amp, not trying to go overboard, got mostly for DT880
-HE 400 vs Pro 900 on metal music? keeping in mind bass is OK in my metal as long as an EQ can tone it down (If its like the xb500's it might be too much, although these 900s I know have MUCH more quality down there)
-worried about flatness from HE-400, compare this to the 280's? (not in quality but presence of frequencies)
-Anyone have experience with ANY of the mentioned headphones on a fiios 10?
-Should I just make a F******* decision based more on price/look/comfort since any will be a huge upgrade?
-Slightly worried about pro 900s reputation for the need to constantly be adjusting on your head to get good balanced sound
Thanks a bunch, would love any input, persuade me someone on a set... please
P.S. what are these V-moda M-100's I'm just hearing about?
