V Moda Crossfade M100 or Sony XB1000?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for a new pair of cans to replace mine, and I have high interest in these two. I mainly listen to rap/hip hop and metal/rock. I was curious which would be the better choice (I am open to other suggestions as well). My budget is around $350.

Thanks

Sony XB-1000 is by far your best bet. I've owned a pair of XB-500's before - an incredibly comfortable pair of cans - and they were great. The 1000's are no different.
A friend let me try his V-moda's, and I was disappointed by the comfort and how well they sealed around my ear. In my opinion, the XB-1000 is the clear winner.

Let me know the cheapest place you find them - I'm quite curious.

Enjoy!

Well... honestly I have never heard the V Moda or the XB 1000 BUT I did own the XB 700 and it was gloriously comfortable! 

 

My vote is for the Xb1000 also because it's discountinued so :3 it's not going to b around much longer before it get's uber hard to find :D

The M-100 will sound better but they are less comfy. You'll get as much bass, but more mids and highs and better detail.

Also, I the XB1000's will create a better seal. Any of y'all know where I might be able to find a fair for a good price - I've definitely been thinking about it.

Also - an amp might be a good idea too. Just my two cents.
