I made a thread about this earlier because I didn't notice this thread.. I'll just copy and paste what I typed here and maybe I'll get more responses.
I have the Audio Technica ATH-M50s.. I'm a little disappointed. I think I was expecting too much out of them. When I compare them with my Skullcandy Hesh 2.0, I'm not hearing much of a difference.. nothing sounds very new, and I can't tell if sometimes when I hear a song sounding better than the last time I've heard it if it's because of a placebo effect or if it's the headphones. I'm new to what people would call really good headphones.. I got this because I heard great things about it, but now I'm unsure whether I was just listening to a lot of loyal fans (the equivalent of Linux fans or Ron Paul fans)..
Again, The sound doesn't sound much different compared to my year-old Skullcandy Hesh 2.0.. I'm not noticing anything different. I'm considering going to the store later to try others on. What are your recommendations? Should I keep these and give them some time or get something else? I listen to all genres. I don't have anything more specific than my favorite being post-hardcore and hip hop.. but it ranges daily. I'm listening to Wiz Khalifa but an hour ago I was listening to a Live album of Celia Cruz (salsa).. I do like bass, but I don't want anything unneccessary like what Beats would give me.
I now have the Sennheisers HD 380 PRO. I thought I had enough time to try them on at Guitar Center but I still feel like I'm trying it on. I'll let you know how it is. Not as much bass, which I liked on the ATH-M50s.. I cant say if it sounds better yet. I'll let you know.
Anyone compared these to the ATH-M50s? if so, what were your thoughts?
