Take a look at the frequency graph below.  I'm using the Senn HD-25-1 and Amperior (warm colors) for comparison with the V-MODA M80 and XS (cool colors) -- courtesy of HeadRoom. 

 

All four have a treble spike around 9kHz.  Compared to the V-MODAs, the Senns have a spike there that is 3dB to 7dB higher (depending on which two you compare) which gives these headphones sparkle in the highs but is somewhat fatiguing to me (I own all four).

 

Both V-MODAs have much more polite treble.  The M80 is too rolled off for me, and the XS is just right for me.  The bass on the XS is a bit much for me, which is why I EQ it down a few dB to tame it for more careful listening.  If you are a basshead, you listen at lower volumes, or you need a headphone that has some bass boost to overcome ambient noise from outside, then the XS works well without EQ, in my opinion.

 

I guess I will stay with the intent of buying XS instead of the Amperior.

those measurements don't look right from the day they were released, the xs is bassy but theres no way theres that much bass as the graph indicates (a few other head-fiers said the same thing as me a few (or more) pages back ... sorry try using innerfidelity's data sheets and compare them like that

Time domain plays a big roll in perception IMO...  It's as important as intensity in my view.  That's something that isn't shown in a raw frequency graph :/

Ehh. I'm guessing too much low end for rock. I'd say get a Grado. Aren't they amazing for rock?

InnerFidelity's measurements also shows greater bass for the XS as compared to the M80.  The difference could be due to seal, which is easier to get with the XS.   

 

I'm not about to take mine apart, but it would be interesting to see what is in an XS to see if it is built differently from the M80.
