Can the V-MODA M100 handle classical music?

Hi!

 

I have a question for you who know these headphones.

 

Background:

I just bought the Sennheiser Momentum as my first high-end headphones for allround purposes (to listen to all music genres, watch movies, play games etc.) and I love it for classical music, it's like having the musicians right in front of me and there is incredible detail, but the downside is I feel it lacks bass for when I listen to modern music, or movie-music, or play video games - when I feel I want more power in the bass for more "immersion" in the music. To be honest I was a bit dissapointed with the "lack" of bass I was experiencing. Explosions in movies and video games have no power, it's like they can't handle it. This is obviously a personal preference and I probably was expecting more bass out of an audiophile, relatively flat, headphone than there normally is. The question now is if I should return them to the store and instead get a V-MODA M100 to get that bass I am missing. It sure sounds like the headphone for me when I read about it, though I'm not sure if I really am a "basshead" (nor if I would want to be? :P).

 

Question:

Can the V-MODA handle classical music at all or is it terrible with it? Can it give you something like the sennheiser momentum clarity but with more and deeper bass? I'd like a pair of bass-capable phones that can also deliver in classical or movie music if I want them too.

 

Thanks for any insights into this.

Yikes!  You need a much more neutral or at least balanced can for classical.

 

Bass heavy cans and classical music mix like oil and water.

And with bass reduction, what happens if you use them for classical then?

 

I understand I may be asking for too much in one set of headphones, but I'm just curious what you guys think this one can do.

Yeah--you're really trying to use a hammer when you need a screwdriver.
