ATH-M50 Upgrade I am very confused.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Looking to possibly upgrade from a ATH-M50. I made a post awhile ago but never did upgrade but now I have reasons to. 

 

I managed to bend the connector on my M50 but it still works. Also, The pads are going and I don't want to opt for my 3rd replacement of pads.

 

I was looking at some options but really unsure at this point. I'm looking for an Upgraded ATH-M50 sound in the $200-250 price range. Low ohm's is a major plus as you will need no amp. Hopefully, Not loose to much bass. I don't wan't to much or to little.

 

I require a closed back set.

 

Looked at some options here:

 

HFI-780 

HFI-750

ATH-A900X

DT-770 Pro

Custom One Pro

 

Any suggestions?

You should look for a pair of Vmoda M-100s in the for sale section

Easily the AT A900X.

Is the a900x portable and doesn't require an amp?

It's a rather large fullsized headphone that doesn't fold. On the other hand it doesn't need any amping.

Which works fine for me.

Looking around I decided that the DT770's 80 OHM or Custom One Pro's would be better for me. 

 

Now it's a debate of which one of those to pick. Leaning towards the DT-770's for sound quality but question if i can get better unamped sound form the custom one pro. Custom one pro replaceable cable is a major plus for me.

Does that sound like the M50?
