I found the Philips Citiscape Uptown for just $55 at my local Marshalls... crazy!
But is the ATH-M50 that much better in that I should get those for $135 over the Philips for $55?
The main thing I am looking for is comfort by the way. I value comfort more than sound quality, but obviously both are important.
Also, I am going to use them in the library so I can't have them leaking too much noise.
In terms of looks, both are awesome... but I ordered the white ATH-M50 which IMO look incredible.
Also, I have a set of Bose QC15s I plan on returning. These did nothing a minimum amount in terms of blocking out people talking and random noises that pop up. I study in a library, so I am more concerned about random distractions than a loud constant noise like that in an airplane.
EDIT: I know this has been made a few times before, but I am only making this topic again because of the price point at which I found the Philips Citiscape Uptown at, which I feel like is a huge positive.
Also, I want this to listen to music while studying... so I am definitely not in the music industry by any means lol. Just wanted to make that clear.
Another issue is that build quality is a slight issue, because I will obviously have to take these to and from the library and so they will be transported quite a bit, most likely in my back pack.
