Sony MDR-1R V.S. V MODA CROSSFADE M-100 - Page 2

post #16 of 27
I forgot to mention that the yamaha pro 500s are pretty fun sounding (unlike mdr1r) but not up to basshead standards.
But that doesn't seem to matter because choosing the m100s means you are a pretty big basshead
Meep
They have had quite the price drop in the US (current price is half of the original msrp: $200)

Thanks for your two cents. I've always been torn between sound quality and clarity and bass amounts. I though I have found something that would fit both tastes in the m 100's or Sony mdr-1r's but I guess the pro 500s are also a reasonable option too. I'll consider those.

Please tell me your address and I'll be there shortly. :3
Tell me though, what is your opinion of the m100 and if the headphone under it is the mdr-1r, your opinion on it too. Thanks

You can have the picture mate! Lol:)

Headphones under its the Audio Technica ATH-M50x limited ed blue. I can't really choose between the two I both love them.

As per your requirements, the m100 will surely satisfy them. Its is a fun sounding heaphone. It really gets you involved with the music you listening to.

As far as i know the m100's are crowd sourced headphones and headfier's had contributed alot with the development of these cans.

after thinking about it, I'll get the v modas. If bass is to heavy, I'll return those and get the sonys. I plan to buy a firefly DAC for the headphones, too.

By the way, what headphones do you own at the moment?

HD439 with bass mod. I opened all three holes. Bass is okay now for it but it sorta muddles everything else. I also brefiely owned a bower and winkins p3 but I had comfort issues so I returned. Never will get on ears again. I also previously owned a pair of hd280 pros, but they where too flat and uncomfortable. Returned those too.

Cool, hope you get them soon and enjoy the music once again.

Give us an update when you have them.smily_headphones1.gif

And if the sonys are too neutral, you'll go for the yamaha pro 500 (hopefully)
Hehehe

I guess. I just have to get them before the lawsuit between beats and Yamaha closed I suppose.
