Hi folks. I'm trying to pick a new set of headphone for me. I did some research and found Audio Technica ATH M50.
But I want to be an open minded person and wanna ask for your expert skill and help me determine one.
This is characteristics for the headphone that I want :-
~ Must be a closed back ( as i want a good isolation )
~ Stylish look yet awesome build quality ( I dont want a good set of headphone with low durability and ugly looking )
~ Good or near perfect isolation ( I normally use it at medium noisy place such as the mall , so i want to hear the music without any interruption )
~ A detachable cable ( I'm pretty scared of damaging the cables )
~ A good portability
~ No sound leakage from my headphone ( dont wanna disturb other people )
~ Deep bass but not muddy
~ Price range of 200 USD and below ( might also considered below 260 USD if they're as good as they can be)
I like the M50 . The only things stopping me from buying them is their non detachable and super long cable ( i mean seriously super long) . But I've found a thread that someone modifies his/her M50 to be detachable cable.
Here's the link > http://www.head-fi.org/t/553483/ath-m50-removable-cable-mod
As I am only a noob at headphone , I dont know much about modifying a headphone. So, can anyone show me or give me the link on how to mod a headphone to be detachable.Do I need to send to a shop to modify it for me? And one more thing , does it affect the sound quality of the headphone if i mod them?
Would you guys also recommend/suggest me a good amp to be pair with the headphone.Something under 100 USD. I need it to be portable and good amp for its price ofcourse. And what is DAC suppose to do? Do i really need it?
Any help would be appreciated ! (Sorry if my english aren't good as yours)
