I am looking for a new pair of headphones and can't seem to decide on a single pair.
I have read a few threads on this website and while its helpful, I keep shifting from one headphone to the next.
I am no producer or mixer or anything like that, but I do want good quality headphones with a good bass response. I listen to music on my iPod, and watch movies and play games on my PC and tablet. The music I listen to has a lot of bass and I do change the eq to bass boost because I like how it sounds. I have used beats products and while the bass is nice, the build quality is sub par for something over 200 euros, it has to last for at least 2 years. My friends beats tour broke twice in 2 years, and a beats Solo the cable gave problems within a year, its expensive to replace something you paid so much for in the first place. Also the bose products sound really good, but lack that bass punch, there is bass but its lacking and just disappointing for me.
Basically what I want is headphones with, a detachable cable single side/both sides doesn't matter as long as it can be replaced, and a product that is durable, my budget is between 70 to 150 euros(+- $90 - $200) mainly for music on an iPod.
So far what has interested me from reviews and youtube videos is the shure SRH750, akg k540 and the newer k619, audio technica M50s.
Just want some help on whether my ipod will be able to power the shure 750 and the m50s, since its a dj headphone and comes with the bigger jack? I like music, enjoy bass but I do not own any mixing device or the like.
Does the K619 have a detachable cable?
The M50 and the SRH750 has the bayonet type connection at the headphone with the coil in the cable, would it be possible to change it to a straight cable or another cable with a mic and volume controls?
In your opinion which of the 4 is most suitable for me?
If I am looking in the wrong department entirely, please do tell me what I should be looking at. Sorry for so many questions, just this site seemed to be helpful with many threads and reviews.
