Hey guys, I have been happy with my M50s and my cheap V-Moda ear buds for a while now. Just tonight I decided to try out the cotton ball mod for my M50s to see if I liked it. So far I have loved it. I have been listening to my music again because of the new sound. It seems to be clearer and have a better sound stage. My question is, if I upgraded to something that is open like the AD700s or some Grados, would it be like this but better? I have about 200 to spend and I also want to get an E7 so I can spend about 100 on headphones. I would like good bass (not overpowering but there) and good clarity. Obviously sound stage would come with the open design. You guys have any suggestions? I am afraid that this mod has really opened my eyes and now my casual attitude towards sound will be taking a turn for the more hardcore soon. I am getting a tax return soon and I have a feeling I know where that will be going
EDIT: I forgot to mention what I listen to. I listen to stuff like Frank Ocean (heavy on the vocal as it is R&B), Alternative Rock (Radiohead and the like), Metal (Avenged Sevenfold), Hip Hop, Electronic, and sometimes Reggae. Also I would like them to be comfortable.
