The beats sound a bit cleaner in some areas and are more musical as the m100 sound boring in places apart from bass.  Overall I would say they compete with each other quite closely,  Both in terms of sound are worth less than a 100 due to the fact phones such as the shure 440 and ath m50 beat them when it comes to clarity and detail. with the m100 you are paying for the craftsmanship and packaging and extras, same with the new studios too but I find the m100 a better package overall. both are a waste of money if you are looking for SQ though at the price range.

Really the Ath m50 have better clarity than M100 sheesh, oh well what ever

 

Byeyerdyanmic Dt 990 Pro is the clear winner of any Price to perfomance Bass Heavy Can, although it's open to MAJOR LEAKING and no isolation. But then again, you owe the people within 4 feet of you the chance to listen to suck an epic can <3, even if it is only what's leaked out!

Nope but it's the Beyer Dt 990. fully open backed can. For $160 bucks it's about the best clarity your going to find, the mids are actually have a nice delicate body to them as well! In fact the Dt 990 has a touch more clarity than my $600 dollar [modded] Audio Technica W1000x. Although the w1000x has better 3D imaging 

 

Still I don't need to hear the M100 to know it's not competeing with a full open back 990 [man that sounds horrible doesn't it... oh well] 

 

Still, some people may not like Open Back bass, as it's different from closed cans. Same goes for the mids, everything a tad more delicate and tighter over all. Some find the mids lacking, but I do enjoy them. they have a delicate realism to them. Although, ofc the closed w1000x has a better mid prensentation over all, the dt 990 is not far behind it. 

 

So the Beyer is not the perfect can by any means. If you don't need the isolation and are in a quiet area, and don't mind the leaking it's an amazing buy, but again there are some BIG draw backs xD. Like listening to it when your riding in a car, the sound of the Engine and road kinda mask the bass a good bit,

I've helped a good number of new members this week, so I don't need your approval to validate my input thanks :D

 

We are talking about Beats, which are bass heavy cans. I too at one point was looking at Bass heavy cans like the Beats Studio, which I actually like [the 40mm drivers right] I enjoyed them, but at that time the only other headphone I had was the Sony MDR XB700, I was trying to find what can I wanted next, now the Sony XB 700 have a SERIOUSLY crazy sub bass to them, Very closed natured bass, I found that I like open can bass over closed.

 

That being said, for some one who is where I was at one point, I suggest he try the Dt 990 Pro seeing as he may like the open bass sound over closed, trust me at one point the Xb700 did not have ENOUGH bass for me, I realized at that time that no quanity of bass would replace the joy that I get from the visceral impact of a tighter more real bass [which I found in the Beyer Dt 990]

 

So again, if your looking for a good mix of HEAVY tight hard hitting bass, mids and highs. I enjoy the Dt 990 very much. Much more than every beat's I tried and more than my Old Sony Xb 700, and I even modded my Sony's [making them Semi Open cans] and ran them through a tube amp [which restored the mids] after ALL of that time money and effort. I still found the Beyer dt 990s where a simpler cheaper and better solution to my problem with wanting more bass 

 

So give them a try, they are pretty cheap and sell VERY fast online. So if you buy and do not like you should be able to sell them and regain your money quickly! 

 

Now the Reem, we are here to help new members SO take your issues with my up in private :D don't de rail the thread with irrlevant complaints against me please ^^

Agree'd, although I do like extra's. The Sound Magic HP 100 has extras as well and might have a slight tilt to bass that you wold enjoy. As the sound quality of the Sound Magic is more balance and neutral. But it should have enough bass response to pair nicely with an amp that has bass boosting!

agree'd I still want to try a pair to see how they compare to my Akg K550 [which would not be bassy enough for you sadly]

 

And again I do love extras q.q [Like a free Case q.q]

I can't comment on the Sound Magic but I own and am listening to my K550 it is VERY NEUTRAL... VERY. Granted it has SLIGHTY forward mids [which is not a bad thing] but the bass and treble are very clean and neutral. It's a sound that I enojy [well I like slighty more treble] but it's a very universal head phone, and the detailing is very nice. The biggest issue with it is fit. If the K550 does not fit your head, then the Sound Magic would be an excellent choice! Both are good headphones, and for good quality and BIG bass a headphone amp would benifit both!

The k550 really imo does not sound like an Open headphone :\

 

my w1000x has a better over all sound over the K550 any and EVERY day but again that's a $600 can [I've modded and Pad Swapped mine] so not a fair comparision. I also returned the Mad Dog for the w1000x 

 

Although I paid about $450 for mine [including the mods] although I got VERY lucky with finding it for $350 used here on head fi,

 

Still the Mad Dog is a good headphone, but it needs a good amp. You can pay $300 for it and it will sound about as good as an Ath a900x, if you don't have proper amping [and for $100 the Ath a900x is a REALLY good can] but for the Mad Dog to compete and shine as a $300 head phone it needs sufficent power. Hence I don't recommend it to new comers. 

 

It's like the differance between cooking a Prime T Bone steak to Well done and Medium Rare, the steak costs the same regardless of how you cook it, but if you over cook it... it tastes terrible and you wasted your money, how ever a proper cook on it will make it shine, the Mad Dogs are like that steak, like that steak prepare it wrong by underampng it, and like an over cooked steak it's going to be a dissapointment

I'd imagine the dynamic driver contributes to the more open sound, as orothos are know for the thick lovely mids.

 

I'd like an HE 500 at some point in all honesty

 

but moving on, I still want to hear the Kef
