Punchy cans can be difficult as they sometimes bleed into the lower mids sounding muddy.

Ps don't get the pro 900, too much treble and distortion in the sub bass.

This is why I'm interested in the Signature DJ (As expensive as it is.) It's said to have good mid bass, sub bass without clouding the mids at all. It also lacks the harsh trebels of the Pro 900, making it sound like the best headphone for me so far. (still can't get over that price blink.gif)

I say try the M100, they don't have the sub bass rolloff like the signature djs and are 1/3 the price. If they aren't for you they are quite easy to resell.

yeah. a lot of people have said that the M100 is almost as good as the SigDJ for less money

That's one of their strengths IMO. Don't have them on me right now, but the Yams never struggled with any song I've played. You are able to pick out different frequencies and instruments even with the bass rattling your ears. The bass never muddies the mids, or distorts them the way the DT770s did when I had them.

How's the comfort level on them? The ear cups seem relatively small

Honestly your best off buying something inexpensive like a Pro700mk2 or Q40 and buying a high quality amp. That's what I would do at least.

The pro 700 are supposed to be REALLY uncomfortable, and comfort is the main reason why I am ditching the Vmoda M80 that I have has since they came out. Still open to the Q40 though. People say it's one of the best value cans out there

The Q40 isn't comfortable for everyone. I thought it was okay, but my ears did touch the foam screen that goes over the driver. A lot of folks are switching out the ear pads with Beyeydynamic pads and report it makes them much more comfortable. In fact, Malveaux said in his review that the new pads were mandatory. So that's something you may consider if you go with the M100s. smile.gif

Just wanted to add - 700mkii and q40 are midbass (punchy) focused and roll off during sub bass. Both are very respectable cans.

Well comfort is a subjective terms, it depends on your ear size and endurance. Like one guy might find X headphone to be unbearable for even 10 mins while the other guy can wear it for an hour or two before he has to take it off. But ear size also matters. Btw, the M100's comfort is only so-so for me, not great but not terrible either.

Comfort is definitely subjective. That said, some people might have a limited perspective. Without having tried anything better, someone might think that's just how headphones feel.

In other words, I'm not just looking for hard bass, but a great overall audio experience complimented by great bass. For a little bit of background, I previously owned the VModa M80, which I got rid of because they did not have enough bass.

Any suggestions? 

 

 

I listened to your samples; I also listen to Burial and XX. My personal headphone experience has led me to the Denon D7000 for all things electronic, they have some of the best bass available from a headphone and overall have a nice balance.
 
I suppose I could recommend those but whats to say you want a little more bass and a little less SQ and would prefer the D5000. Both will be considerably better sounding overall compared with the cheaper Ultrasone, VModa and similarly designed phones. I only question if you need to spend close to $1000 or you can find what you're looking for in a sub $200 headphone.

The Denon Dxxx series although nice has a bit too much distortion in the bass area and is a hint too bright for this guy, especially considering the price. If you listen to lots of electronic music I think you can do better for the money. The Denons aim to be a bit more well rounded.

Another option is the new Denon D600's. The price keeps dipping below $300 every so often. The reviews are very mixed but the sound may be right up your alley and they do not need an amp to run. They will be loud and impact-full out of a portable device. They were made to compete with the likes of Beats and Sol and other celeb headphones. Not sure why they felt the need to dip down to that level but they did and it may be worth it to you to watch the amazon price or eBay because they will be back around $300 in the near future.

There are some used one's available now that may fit your needs.

 

Good Luck,
