I'm coming from owning an xb-500 (my first headphone aside from apple earbuds) and then V-moda crossfade lp (recently bought). I literally went to best buy 4 years ago and bought the xb500 not knowing anything about headphones and just thinking to myself "sony is a good brand". Fast forward to now and I've really gotten accustomed to having bass in my songs.
Two things happened the very first time I put on the XB-500s
- Wow, I can't believe how much bass there is here, it makes me want to bob my head the entire time
- Wow, I can't believe how many new instruments and layers of music I'm hearing in this song that I know by heart.
One thing happened the very first time I put on my recently bought V-Moda crossfade LP
- This sounds exactly like my xb-500s but with less bass.
What I want:
All I want is an upgrade on my xb500s, maybe not in the bass department (same bass or slightly less is fine but it must have a very strong presence), but I'm desperately craving another "wow" experience (ie wow that same song I thought had so many layers on the xb500 now has even more layers+awesome bass!)
I just want to be wowed, for under 200$ (ok maybe I can stretch it to 250).
What are your recommendations????
