Updated on 2nd page with current things im looking at: E10/E07K + Beyerdynamic 770 250/32LE 990/250
Hi everyone. 6 months or so ago I got a pair of HFI-580's and like what seems to be the ongoing trend, I bought 1 pair of headphones that I kept and now am on my way to my 2nd. This is kind of a present to myself for quitting smoking. Anyway. I want to upgrade to something in the 300 dollar range or so and I have been really considering the M-100's.
Things I am looking for -
Comfort - Being able to wear them for long extended periods of time is one of the most important things to me. I have larger ears than normal so one thing with the M-100's is that im not sure they will have a good seal on them for my head size.
Sound - I listen to a pretty decent variety of music. Electronic, rap, rock, some country, and a little bit heavier rock/metal, pop. I'd like to have a bit of a bass emphsis since the majority of the music I listen to is the first two genre's listed while still keeping a good treble and mid range.
Detachable Cables - At this price point, if something should happen and get shorted I would like to be able to replace the cable rather than the headphones.
I am open to both closed and open headphones considering that I have never heard an open headphones soundstage (best soundstage I could compare it to would be Philips Uptowns.)
Any M-100 owners that see this could you give me details on the soundstage etc? I know that the Uptowns I used to own had a really cool sound presentation and it felt like I was getting hit with instruments from all angles and thought it was cool. How would it compare?
The source is going to be the direct jack on my computer using a VTI 2012 chip I believe? Motherboard is a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H if you really would like to get indepth with that aspect.
Any other questions feel free to ask, truly I am just making sure I get the best bang for my buck if I go with the V-MODA's, as well as a bit more information on them, but am still open to considering other options (Such as the Ultrasone upgrade path (Pro 900ish range)
