Looking for an over ear upgrade to the vmoda m80. Budget is around $400. That does not mean I WANT to spend $400, but I will if need be (the cheaper the better!) I will be driving these unamped from an iPhone 5, so an iPhone control pod is nice, but not needed. I want something with a touch more bass than the M80 and in a more comfortable form factor (the M80 hurt like a bear trap!) However, I became adicted to the nice, wide soundstage of the M80. So far, I have narrowed my choices to as follows
VModa M100 (Worried about comfort, but willing to give Vmoda a second chance)
Sennheiser Momentum (lovin those cushy earpads!)
Denon D2K (What I'm leaning towards currently, but worried about the iPhone not being able to drive them)
Still very open to suggestions!
BTW the Sony XB1000 are out. Those earpads look freaking ridiculous
