Looking for flat response, detail, not colored, not fatiguing, balance, good stereo field, durability, comfort, etc
As far as I'm concerned, the M50's have it over their rivals in most of these categories, and their overall score makes them a world-class contender in this category: studio work. I've owned my last pair for nearly 4 years and they're only just starting to wear.
It's time for a new set, though. Figured it might be cool to get something different and keep the M50s for reference.
Have read a bit about the Q701s and Senn HD 650s. Both sound promising. Anybody got experience of a direct comparison?
Any other models to throw on the maybe list before making the call?
