yea the m-100 sound about right for EDM, i think ill still wait around abit for some more impressions before changing my mind about them and getting the ATs though.
thank you very very much for your impressions, which can has more sub-bass detail in your opinion? which one has more sub-bass quantity? you say the ATs are brighter than the m-100, do you know how bright they are in comparison to dt 770s (250)?
The M-100 has slightly more sub-bass rumble than the WS99, and this is probably due to the boosted bass levels. Low-end clarity on the M-100 is about on par with the WS99, but due to the V-MODA's greater bass levels, some detail might be lost in the booming sound. To be honest, I didn't really pay much attention to the sub-bass detail when auditioning the cans. I'll have another go when I pick up my M-100 soon (sometime this week or the next).
From memory, the DT770 has greater treble reach, which sounded quite sibilant to my ears. I'm quite sensitive to sibilance, so I didn't really enjoy the DT770. I tested the 80 ohm version both unamped and amped. I believe the treble presentation of the DT770 for all its versions is about the same, with the main difference coming from the bass quantity.
Well, its true, the bass of the WS99 does come to life with an amp or via EQ-ing. Like RPG said, if you love the general sound signature of a headphone, you can always attenuate the bass levels to your preference with a good bass boost amp.
