    Well I be damned.... They are better than my Denon C300. The tips that come with them are garbage, once I swapped them with the C300 tips... the sound is amazing. Its crazy how good the bass is.

    Similar headphones to AKG K550 (K551) Check out the Focal Spirit Pro and the UE6000 (which they consider better than the 550), and the Momentum which replaced the UE6000 on their wall of fame.  (UE6000 is a lot cheaper)   Judging by the genres you...

    Best IEM for EDM listening?

     ATH-CKS99 all the way! My Denon AH-C300 has more bass than any IEM I've ever tried... dual 11mm drivers. If you like massive amount of bass, give them a try.

    Advice for first audiophile headphone

    M100 is not fully closed, it is semi close back. That's why it has great sound stage and hence it leaks slightly, I wear it on airplanes all the time though, and its not enough to bother other people sitting next to me.  S Logic is quirky, some people love it, and some hate it.  I personally...

    Advice for first audiophile headphone

    M100 has a bigger sound stage than the PRO900. In terms of amping, M100 is designed to be portable, so it doesn't require much power. You can take the PRO900 a lot further via amping than you can with the M100. PRO900 has a bigger bass emphasis, M100 has about +8db bass emphasis, where as the...

    Most underrated and overrated headphone? For a bit of fun :)

    Overrated: HE400, HE500. Are they good? YES. But a large part of their reputation is from the psychological effect from this mystique to them because of their planar magnetic drivers. But in terms of imaging and just sounding better. I think Senn HD600/650 are better.

    Need Help!

    mdr 1r for bass? It has pretty weak bass, and is known for its forward mids and relative balance even though it's on the bright side.

    Why so expensive?

    The VModa M100s may be outside of your price range.. otherwise they are the best basshead cans to me with a great reputation on this forum. If you want something cheaper, I actually suggest you check out the Denon D400. They pale in comparison to the headphones in their MSRP, but they are 100...

    Why so expensive?

    It is because the new updated model aren't as good as the discontinued, hence why the XB500's market price increased.

    The new guy - looking for headphones!

    840 has no bass.  :p I don't like it personally. I listen to mainly EDM, which has driving bass line. If you listen to a lot of classical music, you should probably stay away from the M100. But if you listen to mostly contemporary music, M100 is where it's at.

    V-Moda M100 are epic. For open there is the HiFiMan - HE-400

    In my experience if you are just talking about bass quantity. I seem to get more from IEM than over ear cans.

    Open backed cans for "bassheads?"

    You may also like the M100, they are semi open. They are rather dark, and has a bass emphasis , but not as much as the bass monsters like the LP2,  XB500, Pro700MKII etc (may still be too much for you though). Cheers, :D

    Open backed cans for "bassheads?"

    Quote: +1, excellent suggestion by RoMee. Beyers are really bright (as are most Ultrasones), you won't like them if you prefer dark sounding signature.
