I've been beating myself over deciding which headphones to get for the past few days and I have narrowed it down between these 2 cans. Reason why these 2 are last on my list is because from what i've researched, these seem to be the best entry-level "basshead" cans.
A little background about myself; when it comes to which type of genre of music I listen to, it's pretty diverse, but for the most part I listen to electro, indie, dupstep, trance, alternative, house, hip-hop, power pop, and pop punk.
And yes I've seen the review/comparison between these headphones http://www.head-fi.org/t/556509/review-battle-of-the-entry-level-rivals-ultrasone-hfi-580-vs-audio-technica-m50-vs-pro700-mk2 and I still can't seem to decide.
My thoughts so far, as for price, they're fairly equal (PRO700MK2 is only about $10 more). I really like how the PRO700MK1 has a detachable cable. As for aesthetics, I would have to go with the PRO700MK2 but to be honest, i've never seen these in person so I'm not sure if they'll be too bulky.
This is where I need the majority of your help, the sound quality. I honestly have no idea how these sound so I will have to take your word for it. But what I do want is a very punchy, strong bass with no muddyness at at. Also, I can't stand high, strong piercing highs, they make my ears cry.
So any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
