A newbie here. I recently purchased DT 880, HD598 and Centrance Hifi-M8. Only DT 880 has arrived, the other two are on the way. I heard that DT 880 and HD598 are great for many genre, so my plan is to keep the one that I like and return the other one.
At the same time, I am also looking for a basshead can that doesn't sound muddy. Both X1 and M-100 are on the wall of fame on innerfidelity, so I am sure either of them will be a great choice. The question is how X1 being open and M-100 being sealed will affect their sound quality. Soundstage is really important to me, so I think X1 will be better in that regard. However, I heard that a sealed can produces better bass tones.
How much better would M-100's bass sound than X1? How would X1's soundstage be better than M-100? They will be used in an office/home environment. I love R&B and rock. I enjoy hiphop and electronic.
