I'm ready for my entry into the world of hifi. I'm a bit of a basshead but could settle for less. My favourite genre is edm but i also listen to classic rock every now and then. I live in Canada and can get the M Audio q40 for 200$ the Ultrasone Hfi580 for 150$ or the ATH M50 for 130$
i was originally going to get the ath m50 but was told the mids were recessed and was soon directed to the q40. I was told the q40 sounded like the m50 with better mids.
I didin't want to spend 200$ and was told it has bad build quality. and eventually found the hfi 580 for 150$ but was told the mids and treble are subjective and to some people may sound awful.
-My question is is the q40 worth the extra 100$ over the m50
-is the Ulrasone worth considering or are the mids and treble awful
-how is the ultrasone vs the q40 or vs m50
-Which one would you consider the most worth it
-Is the build quality of the q40 any good
I do not have an amp at the moment.
Thanks for your help :)
