On a search for high end headphones V-MODA M-100? Senn. Momentums? ATH M-50x? - Page 2

My point isn't to look for budget headphones, it's to get the best bang for buck in the higher end headphones. Those Onkyo's being on ear rules them out, I didn't realize that. I'm pretty positive on the M-100's right now. 

 

I have some Sennheiser HD428 that I use for recording and mixing, maybe those are more flat response than the M-100's. M-100's will be more enjoyable for music for sure.

The FC300 isn't realky on ear, at least not for me (though they aren't over ear either). I'm sure you'd like the M100, but I'll just tell you the FC300 sounds better imo and is more comfortable.

The ATH WS99 should be considered also.

Just go to your nearest BrookStone or Microsoft Store for the M-100 demo.

I may end up buying both, and returning the one I don't like. I hate doing that but might be my best option.

I currently own the M-100's, and enjoy them a lot.

 

They are extremely durable, and feel that way. They are all metal, all the way around. I would never have to baby them.

 

I won't bother with a long, 100% accurate post, but I like them. They come with a great case and two cables, look nice, and are quite comfy. Not to mention the sound blocking...

 

I would definitely recommend them if you are considering purchasing them.

How could you not buy a headphone  (m100) that allows you to get THIS laser etched into the side of it??!?! I told the guys at work if they each pitch in 5 bucks I would get a pair of shields with dick butt on it... Dick butt is a favorite around our office.

I've always considered the M50s hugely overrated. They tend to be the first semi-decent headphones people buy so they always get gushing reviews from people who haven't compared them with anything decent.

+1

And then those same folks will spend another $200 buying amps and DACs to try to "improve" the M50. They would have been much better off buying a different headphone to start with.

Well. Not really.  They competed well but now they're outdated.

I agree with this. A lot has come out within the last 2 years or so. When I bought the m50s these were pretty much my options.

 

Ultrasone HFI 580

Grado SR60i 

Shure Srh440

 

I really do not regret my decision.

Just pre-ordered my M50x from Amazon, so when it is out I will have all 3 and hopefully able to directly compare all 3 of them first hand.
