Denon AH-D400 vs V-Moda M100?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I want the most brutal bass. I really like the Denons amp/controls but I like theV-Modas portability. So it all comes down to two things. The bass level. And the comfort. I have beats pros and I'm going to sell them for one of these headphones because they are EXTREMELY uncomfortable. Heavy,tight,and my ears are scrunched up against the plastic inside the earcups. So if these headphones have any of these problems,ill have to look elsewhere for the cure to my bass addiction...

I own the M-100's and they do have a pretty big bass boost. I can't comment on the D400 though as I haven't touched it before.

One thing about the M-100's is that you might find the earcups a bit shallow, which means your ears might press against the driver enclosure of the earpieces. You can check out my Head-Fi review here, or my slightly different review for them on Amazon.com's M-100 webpage, or my video review on YouTube.

 

As for the most brutal bass, I'm not sure what that means, but if you want a lot of bass, the M-100 plus a ZO2 amplifier sound pretty darn bassy without it sounding muddy and ruining the rest of the frequency spectrum like most other basshead headphones I've read about (e.g. Ultrasone).

 

Oh, one big advantage of V-MODA over Denon is the 60-day test trial. If you purchase a product from V-MODA, or one of their authorised resellers such as Amazon, you can return the product for a full refund within 60 days of purchase. So if you end up not liking the M-100's you can return it for a full refund.

What I meant by brutal is,well,if you have ever heard scatta,scary monsters and nice sprites,or bangarang,you can clearly tell that the bass in those songs is very "brutal". And I would like to wait for another person with an opinion on the denons to comment before I decide...

Looks like I'm going to have to bump again... Maybe I should go to a bass head forum or something...

D400 has better comfort and M100 is more accurately priced. Bass performance should be the same. There you go.

Holy mackerel, the D400 is priced at $500? You've got to be kidding me! I've read reviews for the new Denon line and they look pretty "meh" for the price.

Probably gonna go with the v-modas. I travel A LOT so that would probably be best. As long as they are more comfortable than the pros. They are more comfortable than the pros,right?

The D400's MSRP is $400. The one at 500 is the D600 actually, which is supposed to be *serious* about audio quality. The D400 is loaded with gimmicks to appeal more the Beats crowd.

Yeah for the most part. The M-100's squishy earpads might make your ear press against the driver enclosure, but you can stuff the lip of the earpad with paper towel pieces to help with that.

 

The Pro's earpads were super stiff and hard on my head if I recall correctly. You can adjust the M-100's clamping force, which you can't really do with the Pro's.

That sealed the deal.

Do keep in mind that street price for the D400 is around 250-300 though.

Oh yeah, you're right. My bad.

Still, to Denon: "are you inSaiyan?"
