Best over-ear for home use (<$400) - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Wow. Can't believe no one recommended the Fidelio X1. I haven't heard the HE400 but the X1 is fantastic for bassy genres.

HE 400 can beat x1

Looks like we both listen to the same genres. I'm not a big fan of The Momentum's. I like the looks, but the earcups are too small for me. Thinking of buying the B&W P7 as a home headphone, but It's also portable enough to be taken on the go once in a while. I already have the M-100, which I use as a home and on-the-go headphone since it's the only headphone I currently own. And while HFiMan headphones are not easy to buy here, the P7 is.

Indeed!

Plus - The @mrspeakers Mad Dogs are 400.

I wouldn't call them "super bassy" (too bad you don't have twice that much ;) for the Perfect Sound d901)

but those are KILLER closed orthodynamics cans - I love em, and play plenty of bass music - they got dynamic punch.

and you can go balanced or 1/4" (thus detachable cord)

You mentioned the VMODA Crossfade M-100 - one of my favs for electronic music on-the-go...

Anybody heard the VMODA Crossfade LP????

I've heard the LPs. they are much much darker. more bass quantity as well vs m100. more recessed-mids. lalala. not the best set for anything other than edm, as i personally find the m100 a bit lacking when it comes to some other genres as well. if you snipe the LP for the black friday price of $70 or a sale price of sub-$100, it can be worth it to have a stylish bass-heavy pair of headphones. but i personally wouldn't use em as my primary set & there is no need to consider em if you already have the M100 (imo).
