Im looking for an upgrade from my shure se 215 ltd, specifically I am looking for a headphone that can deliver a good amount of sub bass without sacrificing the mid, just like the se215,

Most of the time I listen to edm, occasionally orchestra and piano cover..
Headphone budget rm 900. Looking Closed or semi open, and easy to drive headphone.


Based on my findings so far, vmoda m100 is the answer, wonder if anyone have different opinions on this.

M-100 is good bass impact, nearly 90% like LCD2 sub bass texture. Mid & high may be good but lack extra detail like LCD2.2 & HD800. Philips X2 also good for basshead, nearly like Senn Momentum 2.0, Beyer DT1990pro(with A20 amp), HD650 & Shure 1540. Anyway difficult to find used set locally.

If earphone/iem Sony EX1000 among the best for basshead, other option JVC 700/850/1200(Used set below RM900).

most fostex headphones have good bass response. T50rp mk3 is a good start.

For that budget I would've recommended Sony MDR-XB500, but it has been discontinued for years. It's very much like the SE215, but with greater power handling, and bass that extends a little deeper. It won't distort at even the lowest and loudest bass that you can handle. Haven't tried their newer XB lineup, but the XB300 to 1000 were genuinely engineered to be bass monsters; it wasn't fashionable and elegant with its monster truck tyre earpads, which was deemed necessary by the engineers.

The M100 is actually quite nice. It will also play quite cleanly, and I find the mids good enough. Has a bit of sparkle too.

Sony MDR-1A, period. Solid Bass with good mids and highs. Comfort is great too.

My suggestion is an on ear portable headphone on the lower side of the cost. JVC HA-S500.

I didn't do any critical listening with t50rp so can't confirm that. I had adequate listening with t60rp, th600, th610, thx00 and hours of listening with th900. They definitely have better bass than some other HP's in the same price range.
