I'm currently at the $150 budget for a pair of headphones and my final decision comes down between the Audio Technica Ath M50 and the Fischer FA 003/HM5. I'm leaning towards the M50 with only two concerns, and I would really appreciate if anyone who owns the headphone can comment.
- I heard the M50 has a very punchy bass. I'm am definitely not a bass head, i don't mind having a bit of bass but i don't want my head to be dizzy or shaking too much if I'm listening to a Rap/Hip hop music. Is the bass overpowering (for a non bass head)?
- How comfortable are the M50s? I heard the clamping is pretty powerful, which makes for a tight fit and, your ears might get warm/sweaty pretty fast. Can you wear this for hours and feel pretty comfortable?
It seems like the Fischer has less overpowering bass and may be more comfortable, but the design and flexibility of the M50 is awesome.
