Upgrading from ath-m50! Need advice/help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello there!

I am looking for a new upgrade for my ath-m50's.

I was looking for something that is an all-round good set of can's.

I am more into dubstep or more like liquid dubstep, electro, house, trance type of music.

But they have to work with all other types since I like to switch up too (Except country music)

 

I thought the Denon 2k's would fit the bill. But finding them is quite hard these days and they can get expensive. I would prefer them used since 450+ for me right now is a bit out of the question for me. Ive seen a couple used for 270$ but are there some "better" headphones that fit the bill and actually affordable or better quality(less that 270$)(preferable in CAD but not necessary)?

It would help to know what source(s) your plugging the headphones into?

(DAC & Amp?)

Hey! Well my source is either my laptop, my sony 900w amplifier or a JDS labs cmoybb v2.03 rechargeable connected to my phone. Other than that I have no DAC.

 

In the future I am probably thinking of getting the O2 (Objective 2) (Not sure if I will get the O2/DAC combo).

 

I hope this helps you.

Thanks for your time!

J.

Maybe DD (Dac Destroyer), USB DAC, they sell on eBay, sometime the winning bid is under $60, use it with your laptop and use the cMoy BB as the amp. with everything.

Maybe Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro 250-Ohm (semi-open) headphones

Hey! They have the Fiio E17 on sale right not for 100$ worth the upgrade?
