Hello, I'm new to buying high quality headphones and this will be my first pair. I've been going crazy trying to find the best pair of headphones for my budget and I'm stufk between a couple choices. I listen to Dubstep, Electro, and also to things like Ellie Goulding or Ed Sheeran.
1st choice- ATH M50
I was 100% sure I wanted the M50s from all the great reviews they got. After a while, I stumbled upon people saying the M50's were over hyped. I asked a headphone reviewer if these would suit my needs and he replied saying that these were just amazing and that they would suit me well. I asked a different reviewer and he said that the M50's would be dull for my preference of genres. So I've got people just confusing me.
2nd choice- Ultrasone Pro 550
I see people saying these are way better than the Ath M50. I was going to buy them until I saw that the M50s actually looked high quiality and the 550s looked cheap and too plasticy. The thing that just holds me back from buying them is the earpads. Those look even cheaper than the ones on my dad's Sennheiser HD202s. The only thing I like about these is the 2 removable cables( coiled & straight) and all the accessories it comes with. Besides that I feel that they are cheaper than the ATH M50.
3rd choice- Ultrasone HFi 580
upon reading several reviews, many people have said that these beat the M50s with better bass and better clarity. I fear that these will be too bassy and maybe not as clear as the M50s.
I'm very iffy about both ultrasones because they just seem cheap to me. Something about them tells me that they will break easily. The M50s look alot better imo. I really want to like the M50s but I'm just confused as to what will be better. PLEASE HELP!! If someone who has owned any of these could do a comparison, I would much appreciate it!
