Long time leecher of knowledge from here, finally decided id just make an account.
I currently have a pair of ATHM50's and they're great. Im thinking about potentially buying a new pair of headphones/headset. I game a lot on my pc, but do not have a soundcard or a mixamp or anything. i also love to listen to my music (mostly classic rock, blues, and some dubstep/rap from today) My M50s still work great and are in pretty good shape, ive always taken care of them etc. the one gripe i guess i have against them is theyre a little heavy weight wise. after a few hours of gaming i need to take them off and relax for a bit. not that big an issue. would i be better off getting a new set of cans? would the sound difference even matter? Or would i be better off getting a mixamp or a gaming headset, or just get an actual sound card? What do you guys recommend? My budget is around $200. Id go over a bit if the difference was worth it etc.
And i guess in general whats the best set of headphones out there for under $200? I ask because ive read a lot of posts the last few weeks. Whats the difference in sound between my ATMH50s and the ATH700s or 900s? Im not brand loyal to AT but really love my M50s that I got after reading up on here a few years back. Way better than my bose triports I had back in the day.
Thanks in advance
