So a long time ago this community did a fantastic job helping me narrow down my choices to the headphone I wanted to buy. In the past I got headphones that did not match my sound signature (DT-880 and also HE-400), they were not colored enough for me. Everyone gave some really accurate information on all the different sets I might like, and I think they suggested an awesome headphone; the V-Moda M-100. The V-Moda M-100's are definitely the best sounding headphone I have ever had. The only problem is their comfort. 10 minutes into listening and my ears are unrealistically sore. Only some contact is made to my ears but mine are so sensitive. I'd say these are about as small as circumaural can get before being on ear. I am wondering if anyone can suggest me a headphone that sort of has the V-moda sound (Emphasized punchy bass, but still very smooth even sound), but with the comfort of the Beyer-Dynamics.
From the past choices people suggested, I think this would include the DT-770, DT-990, and the Ultrasone pro 900's. My fear of the 900's is past talk of them being highly sibilant.
Closed headphones, no open or semi-open
Possible detachable cord would be nice but not a must
Dark sound signature, ***My ears are extremely sensitive to sibilance, like the HE-400 and DT-880 are very very bright and fatiguing in my opinion
HUGE pads. I need beyer-dynamic style pads on my head. The material isnt required but the size of the pads are.
I am fine with going slightly more towards a sub-bass sound, versus a punchy kick bass that the V-moda seem to produce. (They have awesome sub-bass too though from what I have heard)
This being said I am selling my V-moda M-100 as well as my DT-880's, although that will be going into the other section of this forum. Thanks for reading I can't wait to hear your suggestions.
