Looking for a decent pair, not of the bottom segment, but relatively low end of the good ones. Dont really have a set budget. Have done some research, and the 2 front runners at the moment are:
audio technica ath-m50
Its quite important to me that they're relatively easy driven, which is a good reason for the above choices along with them being good headphones in relation to their competition in that price range. Will be used without amp with portable audio, and laptop (and maybe desktop). Listen to a lot of different music (not much too bass heavy hiphop, rap, trace, dance etc stuff though), but maybe most different rock genres. Will also probably be used to watch movies, sports, and some casual gaming.
Besides the above I value comfortability, and to some extent durability. Looks is not all that important (read the shure's dont look all that hot).
From what I understand the m50 appears to be a bit more "fun" with a little bit more bass compared to the shure's that are more neutral but still not too dull?
Any opinion about the above, as well as other recommendations are greatly appreciated. Also considered the DT770 but they seem to require a little more juice.
