Hi guys, i've been lurking around long enough to know how much RE0 and ATH-M50/ES7/AD700 are rated, but the stores in Singapore don't carry RE0 demo sets yet so i cant audition them. I tried the ATH-M50 and i am quite impressed with it. I own a Nuforce NE-6 and CX680. I'm fine with both of their sound signatures
I need input because i really cant decide on what to buy.
I'm thinking about RE0 because i think i might be missing out on this hype if the discount goes off and that maybe i should just cut my budget and settle for something like RE0 and save the money for other things.
I'm also aware that some people will use the supposedly 2:1 SQ ratio of Headphones : IEM.
Portability / IEM / Closed / open cans / isolation isn't really a issue, i already have IEMs for traveling and sports. I'm just looking for a headphone or IEM i can fall in love with and probably use them at home ( good for gaming is a plus ) or when studying.
I listen to a wide range of music but more of instrumental, acoustics, songs with good vocals, a bit of electronic. I'm not really the rock & techno type. I wouldn't call myself a bass head but i value bass quantity(impact) , quality as well as the highs. I guess i need something balanced. I'm really torn between choices and i need some help ( which is very very very appreciated) ? My budget stretches as far as the ATH-M50 goes.
I thought that i should post this here instead of Headphones section, idk. correct me if i am wrong
EDIT: i'm aware that AD700 is probably more expensive than ATH-M50, but they are going on for cheaper prices on amazon than the M50.
