Okay, so I'm looking to buy some quality headphones that will last me a while. I don't really want to spend more than $150 (no amp for now).
I have been looking around the forums a lot and while I while initially going to go for the ATH-AD700s, I realized that they were too big for what I want which something a bit more portable.
I have heard a lot of people praise the M50's thing is I think I would prefer some open cans mainly because I don't want to be sweating or having my head warm up. I know portable and open cans doesn't sound too good, but is it really that bad? I'm not really looking to be completely taken away from the outside world and into the headphones. Can someone comment on this please.
I really want something comfortable, which is why I was really leaning towards the AD700s. I will be using it to listen to talks/lectures, I do a bit of gaming and listen mainly to Reggae/Rock/Hip-Hop although I'd say music usage will be 5-10%.
I really want to hear your opinions so let me know if I'm asking for too much or point out anything you feel is important whether good or bad. -thanks
