This is my first post at head-fi but i love this website!!!
Ok so i am pretty new to the professional headphone way of life. In the past the only headphones ive had are beats and a couple skullcandies but this time i wanted smething better...something that my friends would be jealous of...lol.
so it all started with me googling best headphones under 300..then i found this website and was amazed how helpful it was. I then looked through a few more threads and i was hooked. This started my quest to find the best headphones for their money. I started snooping around and found that the m50s were like recommended in every thread so i went to my local guitar center and tried a pair....they were nice but since i mainly listen to hip-hop/rap i felt a little lack in bass and knew i could do better....
This is when it got hard i scoured this site to find every headphone that would possibly fit into my price range and compare it to things i know but every time i got close to being sure i was going to buy a pair of headphones (i am sure at least a couple of you are familiar with this thread http://www.head-fi.org/t/553735/audio-technica-ath-pro700mk2-review-take-two-subwoofers-straight-to-the-head) i just get back to where i started with, the m50s. I was just about to give up and get the m50s but saw the ultrasone dj1s and the more i read about them the more it appealed to me so i finally stopped myself before i went crazy and said to myself just go get them!!!!
So I just ordered them and they will be delivered this thurs I feel like I made a good decision but after all of this i wanted to ask you guys a 2 questions
1- What were your first pro headphones?
2- Is there any encouragement you can give me on the headphones to help ease my nerves before i get them?
