Total beginner here at headphones and IEM.
Spent the last three days studying up on everything I could on here, reading ljokerl's threads and reviews on different headphones, and all the terminology.
I was going back and forth between the Audio-Technica M50s, the HF5, the Sony MDR-V6, and the Ultrasone HFI-580.
Well I finally settled on the Audio-Tech M50s, and had it in my cart..
when I noticed a 300+ thread on the Fostex T50RP..
I couldn't quite find a summary of the Fostex. As in.. if they are very good stock, or if all the excitement is about their modding capabilities?
I noticed mods can be done for under $100 with the Fostex, and this would be comparable to a high-end headphone. Did I read that right?
So in summary, I'm ready to purchase the M50, but I'm a sucker for projects that yield something great.
Any help would be appreciated!
Some stats: Would listen from my regular computer/laptop or mp3 player (4gb Ipod nano).
I listen mainly to electronica (house/trance/progressive) and mostly vocal.
I do like rock as well and listen to other random genres.
