    I've increased my price range since last deciding headphones and have come across these pairs of 'phones for 100$. I was wondering if anyone hear has used either and which is better. If you have other headphones that are better for 100$, I'm up for suggestions. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that due to the single balanced armature driver of the UM1, that there is almost non existent treble. Not sure about the Super fi 3 though, but I would assume they would be bassy due to their use of dynamic drivers.

    If anyone wants to rep a pair I'm down for that too, I want bassy, analytical, and warm all around if that exists in the $100 price range that are also good for the broad range of electronic music.

    As far as I remember the super fi 3 weren't bassy at all - I am not sure tho - it was rather a cold sound
