I was looking at 2 different headphones for under $200.
The first option would be the ATH-M50 Limited editions. I would get these from sound professionals because they have added a detachable cord.
The second option is Shure SRH840. I have heard mixed reviews of these. They seem to have a clearer mid than the M50s. They are .7 pounds which doesnt make me too sure on traveling with them.
The few deciding factors of my choice would be:
I feel my XB700s are a little punchy on the bass, considering I listen to mostly alternative music.
Im currently leaning for the ATH-M50LE
I would like some more clearness in the mids and highs. I have looked more at the ATH-M50s than the Shures. Which would your prefer, and why? I would use these at school, traveling, and home use. Also, if I were to get the m50s, would it be worth an extra $30 to have a Bluetooth receiver along with the detachable cable to make them wireless? Would wireless affect the sound quality?
