Stylish headphones with subpar sound quality and extremely overpriced.

Posted

Pros: Stylish,

Cons: Bass is a bit bloated, Really recessed mids, Lacks detail, No soundstage to speak of, Overpriced

I tried the v-moda m100 a few months ago when I purchased it and deciding between them and the hd 650. In the end I kept the 650, these headphones are without a doubt pretty overpriced for the sound quality.   Pros: The m100 is pretty stylish is it one of the most stylish heaphones out there, build quality seems somewhat solid though I am not a big fan of those metal hinges it just seems a bit delicate for my tastes.

Pros: Detailed, great soundstage, amazing seperation,

Cons: Build quality, presentation, vocals, lack personality

I still recall the day I placed my order for the He-400's, I waited with anticipation and days seemed to last an eternity. But the moment they arrived and I connected the dac to my computer, I was severely disappointed. Needless to say I listened to them for about 30 minutes before I put them back in the box and left them there. My father is also pretty passionate about audio and knew beforehand that I had ordered these headphones. When he asked about them I just told him I'm returning them, he was curious as to why so I hooked them up for him. He listened to them and looked at me and said why don't you like these?   They sound extremely clear and detailed. I explained to him...
