I currently own a pair of ATH-M50 but i've noticed the Q701 have come down in price a lot on Amazon.com, from what i originally thought were $400 to $240.
Anyway, here are my questions:
Is it worth buying these if i already own the M50s? do they sound significantly better?
Which amp should i use to drive them? Under $100 preferred, willing to go up to $200 if i HAVE to.
How badly do they leak sound? my room is right next to my parents, door shut, i listen about 1/4 way on speakers, half way on iTunes, air con on most of the time.
If i have anything else i forgot to ask i'll post later.
I listen to mainly electronic music and rock music, also instrumental and ambient stuff, some hip hop... I don't like a lot of bass, M50 have about the right amount of bass for me, maybe a little too much now that i think about it.
I will also be using them for movies and gaming as well.
My source is an AV Receiver on a cheap (around $300) Sony home theatre system (so obviously i will need an amp)
I think that's about it....
