Quick comparison vs the Fostex T50rp BMF DBV#3 mod...
BMF - flatter bass and extends deeper, midrange flat but little wobbles across it, treble rides up and down like usual
V-Modex - higher sensitivity (easier to amp), less bass but more rumble, slight dip in middle of midrange but rest of it is flatter overall, treble does not wobble as much and seems to shelf
Soundstage is very different between them. V-Modex feels like it has more air and sounds more akin to the HE-6, while the BMF feels sorta muted in comparison. On the other hand, the V-Modex has a sort of concert hall feel to it, so there's that bit of reverb somewhere. Not quite as neutral, but more "fun" sounding.
edit: there's something in the treble with the V-Modex; I think it's a decay ridge. Noticeable when heavy and rapid strings are playing (like during Vivaldi's Four Seasons)
