I'm looking for some powerful in-ear earbuds. I listen to mostly Electronic music, hip hop, and rap. So I'm looking for incredibly powerful bass at high volumes, without the other stuff getting distorted. I currently use UrBeats buds by Dre. Honestly? They're not bad, considering they're beats.
I just purchased a pair of V-MODA Crossfade M-100's, and am currently using them right now. I HATE THESE with a burning passion. Can they handle the bass I'm looking for? Yes. Is there any way to make them produce that sort of bass and sound quality with the music I listen to? No. I tried with equalizers for hours and hours, and can't even produce the same sort of sound quality that my Urbeats do. Which, frankly? Is sad.
You might all say "Oh, well then you're an idiot because the V-MODA's are excellent and blah blah blah".
I'm not looking for flat, equalized headphones. I want headphones with clear mids and highs, but that can have extremely powerful bass without having to somehow turn the bass up on an equalizer 3X higher than it can go. I want my head to shake. Unfortunately, these V-MODA's are so quiet that that effect is nearly impossible to achieve. I think I'm going to stick with ear buds because of their ability to keep sound in very well, and the fact that (Contrary to what you're all going to tell me), I personally think they have better sound.
So, can anyone suggest any in-ear buds that can produce what I'm looking for that are $300 or less? Or can anyone suggest any way to make these V-MODA's more powerful and have the bass I want without having to buy anything else? Thanks!
