My Pl-50 got broke ( left side got a loose connection , is there any way to repair it ) yesterday.
I am looking forward to replace it with a bit more advanced ( around $100 ) earphones.
Though, I like the sound signature of Pl-50 , found Bass not that profound and punchy and also the voice cracks oh High volume and also High are not that clear. But still a Bag for money for me ( got it for $35 ).
I am getting a deal for RE0 here - http://head-direct.com/Products/?act=detail&id=38 . I want to make sure if this the original RE0 only ( lol, because $50 seems to be a real great deal ).
What i am looking for is for is head phone which has a similar sound signature like that of pl-50 , not too bass oriented ( like M2 ), but bass must be better than pl-50 ( little punchy and clear ) , has a good vocal clarity and treble and must not get cracked on high volume and a little warmth in sound.
Both M3 and RE0 seems to be a perfect choice for my preference . I will use it mostly with my mac book pro and my song collection is mostly Lossless or MP3 VBR 320 .
What i am considering is to buy RE0 at above deal and to purchase a AMP along with it or to go for M3 without AMP.
Also i am a little worried about the durability of RE0.
Please suggest which option i should go for and also suggest a good AMP below $25.
