Update: I took the plunge on V-MODA Crossfade LPs. The chrome ones look really stylish and the reviews seem very positive. Also, at ~$105 on Amazon currently, the price seems really good for the quality. For now I am going to hope my X-Fi Xtremegamer sound card is strong enough to drive these, because I did not purchase an amplifier.
First let me say that I am not an audiophile. I have owned the Sennheiser HD 202s (the cheap $25 headphones) for years and really loved them for the price I paid.
With the impressive sound quality for the price I became brand loyal, in a way, to Sennheiser. I next purchased standard RF wireless headphones (I have tried to remove all cords from my life). The hiss was unbearable for me. I attributed this problem not to Sennheiser, but to limitations in the technology.
This week I purchased Sennheiser RS 160 wireless headphones with Kleer for bitstream data transfer with no hiss. The mids and highs are beautiful to me, they are immensely comfortable, BUT they have terrible bass. I already had trouble justifying $200 for headphones, and with this bass quality, I have initiated a return to Amazon.
What I want to find is a pair of headphones with great bass, but does not sacrifice too much in other areas. I would prefer wireless, but I understand, a cord may be necessary for this dilemma. I also understand I may need to venture away from Sennheiser.
