Hi I'm new this thread and have been doing a lot of read up on this forum. Any how, I've been on a search to find out what I like and don't like. I went through buying sony's XB700, then tried out beats studio (my brother has it), then bought hippo VB (find out don't like IEM), and now finally the AT's M50.
At first I thought I like bass from hearing beats studio, so I bought the sony's XB700. I liked both the beats studio and sony's xb700's for different reasons...but from reading here I figured that there are probable more out there that are more pleasing to my ears. So I decided maybe try IEM's and that's how the hippo vb came it to play. I hated the feeling of something being in my ears within an hr, so sold it. knowing that, I don't want to spend too much for my quest to search a taste for Head phones. I bought the M50 and my gosh I love these. I went back to hear the XB700 and Beats studio to find out that they were just too bright, grainy, and maybe even sloppy in my unexperienced opinion. I am happy with the M50, so pleasing to my ears. yeah M50.
So here is my question. I am wondering if you guys can answer this...I like the M50 and how they sound, but am curious to what an open can with there larger sound stage sounds like... so I've been thinking about the AD700. Do you guys think the AD700 is a downgrade in sound quality from the M50? I know that they sound different from one and another, since the M50 are darker, bassier, closed etc. I'm pretty sure I am not going to part with the M50, but am just curious if the AD700 will satisfy my curiousity and if the AD700 will sound just as good or better than the M50 in a different way.
I am hoping that the AD700 will be a good second set to cover my other spectrum of music selection.
I know there are a lot of AD700 thread and I have read a lot and that's why I'm curious about them. I hope you guys can bear with me and help me out. I'm hoping to purchase something in the next two weeks. and yes guys, I have been bitten by the sound bugs and I am itching everywhere and hoping that you guys can help me find my ointment (It's been only a month since I first bought my first set). I'm also open to suggestions too.
