I really would like some help in buying my first pair of audiophile headphones. I have an idea of what I am looking for, but if anyone can help direct me, it would be much appreciated!!!
As far as sound goes, I really enjoy listening to the intricacies of music. In reality, I have no idea what type of sound I truly enjoy, but I think I would like a warm, balanced sound. I do know that when I listen to music, I like listening to the details of the track. So.. something with clarity? I bought the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 a little while ago based on the large number of positive reviews on Amazon. However, the cable was loose and so I ended up returning it . I didn't buy another pair because I was not too impressed when I listened to it. I felt like the music lacked fullness and warmth? It was a little while ago, and I didn't take notes, but all I can remember was that I was not in love with them, which, if I am going to buy a decent set of headphones, is a must.
I am a student and spend a lot of time in a study hall, so it would be ideal to have at least passive sound isolation with not much sound leak as well as being comfortable with the ability to wear them for hours on end. I want whatever pair of headphones I buy to take me to another world. Another aspect I am looking for are durability.
My budget is around $300. I have recently read some reviews on the V-moda M-100 and am inclined to trying them out.
I listen to all types of music for the most part. Obviously people have different tastes and preferences, and some have better ears than others, but if anyone can help me out by pointing me in the right direction, it would be super helpful.
Thank you so much!!!
