Sony MDR-1R V.S. V MODA CROSSFADE M-100

post #1 of 27

Yo, what up. I was looking for a fun sounding headphone around the 300 range and I eventually narrowed my choices down to these two. At this point I don't know which to get, so i figured, why not ask the experts here at head-fi? If I helps, I listen to hip hop/rap, rock, dubstep,electronic, and dance as well as (might seem weird) K pop, K rock, J pop, and J rock.

No opinion on the Moda Crossfade, but given I'm listening at this exact moment to some of the genres you listed all in one song (JPop hip/hop dance music) on the R1 mk 2, thought I'd say I like them plenty. 

 

But dunno if I'd say they're the most "fun" headphones I've owned, but that depends on your definition of fun.  To me they'd lean on the dry/clinical side on the scale of things.  But fun for me means kinda edgy, punchy, like a good pair of Grado.

 

Anyhow, good luck!

M-100's performs so good on those music genre you mentioned, I really enjoy that punchy bass and the treble is just so right for me. Vocals aren't bad at all, but prefer my other headphones if i want to listen lorde, alicia keys, adele, that kind of stuff.

Cant comment much on the sony mdr 1r tho because I don't have them.

With design the m100's are more aggressive lookin while the mdr 1r's are more classy and this is only my opinion.smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks for the vids. So far I'm sort of edging towards the m 100s but I have not decided yet

Most people say that the yamaha pro 500 is an upgrade over the mdr1r. Some people prefer the jvc sz2000 over the m100

They are 2 totally different headphones though. The mdr1r are pretty neutral while the m100s (and jvc sz2000) are bass monsters. The yamaha pro 500 is in the middle

I have but I wound get those. They seem particularly to large. I forgot to mention, but the cans need to be portable as in I can walk around in them, travel, ect.

Definitely m100s. They are extremely durable,couldn't break them if up you tried.i still have the original generation cross fade lp (one of their first headphones) and I treat them hard. There are no signs of wear and still work great.im sure the m100s are even more durable(upgrades and whatnot) but I have also heard that they are some of the best sounding out t there
