Which to buy? (ATH-M50 vs ATH Pro700MK2 vs DT770 Pro)

Okay so my budget has been ~$200 and I've read SO MANY REVIEWS EVERYWHERE. On here, on Amazon, on steriophile, and a number of other websites. The answer I'm looking for is which of these headphones to buy, if any. I've made a few threads, and this will be the decider of which of these I will buy.

 

M50 - I've had a pair before and loved them, but I'm not sure if I want a second pair. (They were either taken or stolen after I left them somewhere in my school, yes, I am an idiot) They had great bass without sacrificing mids or highs. The clamping power that nobody liked was actually perfect for me.

 

Pro700MK2 - I've read great reviews, but heard bad things. They have amazing bass, and some say the mids and highs are fine, others say they aren't. I am getting a free amp in about a week from my uncle who bought it to go with his $15 Sony IEMs (he didn't know what an amp was actually used for). Any people who have/have had one who can give me advice on this? :o

 

DT770 Pro - I've heard no bad from these, but they seem like I'd need to equalize every song for a good sound on them, which I have aboouttt 2000 songs, 1200 are on my usual playlist :o The reviews I've seen are all very vague and don't reveal very much information about them. So some info would be great for these.

 

Extra information :

 

I listen to Rock (Acoustic to Heavy), Dubstep, (Some) Rap, and Post-Hardcore music.

I love bass, I want a lot of it, but the least sacrificing of mids/highs.

Needs to be power-hungry, and not distort with high volumes.

 

EDIT:$200 maximum budget if you are to recommend other cans

 

Hope I can get an answer this time tongue_smile.gif

 

Thanks biggrin.gif

I've tested these personally, I didn't like them very much, they look really nice, but I didn't enjoy the sound quality of them. Also, my current budget is $200, so it would definitely go over how much I'm looking to pay for new headphones.

From that list, DT770. Avoid the Pro700Mk2. It sounds horrible with rock and metal and the vocals aren't that great.
