Hi guys! I'm relatively new with headphones, my current ones being some cheap $10 ovanns which I use for listening to music on my desktop. You may have heard 50 m50 threads but please, hear me out! For the past month or so I've been doing research on various headphones and these two come to mind with my current budget which maxes at $130. What I want in these earphones is song clarity, portability and if possible...great bass. A few days ago, I met a fellow who lent me his AD700s. The "soundstage" (i think that's what it's called) is great, the headphones are right on the borderline between portable and "full size" but there was not enough bass. I really want to get the ATH m50s however I heard that they were a lot larger than in the pictures, larger than the AD700s. I do have a large head but I am relatively short standing at 167cm so I'm worried that I might look silly if I walked around my college campus and onto public transport with them. Are ATH m50s overrated? Should I just go for the AD700s?
Also how do the VMODA LP and phillips uptowns compare to these?
