I remember somebody here mentioning that V-Moda M80's were the shit. Well, they were right. Best DJ headphones ever, best iPod/iPhone headphones ever. Audiophile/movie listening I think I'll still take Ultrasone Pros, but right-out-the-box-before-even-breaking-them-in they're not only louder than Beats Studios but they have better stereo imaging. Bass not quite as heavy BUT at full volume they don't distort like the Beats.
