Well, I took a step into the audiophile world about 2 months ago, picking up a pair of AT M50s. Now, I do enjoy listening to them and they sound much better than the Klipsch S4s that I have been using for two years, but I want something that will wow me. So, what I'm asking the Head-fi community is what is the best upgrade from M50s?
I'm planning on selling my M50s to a buddy and go for a pair of 'phones in the $250- $300 range. I listen to essentially two genres: EDM and Alternative/Indie Rock. The only "mobile" listening I do is on the bus ride home from school, and for that the M50s weren't a huge hassle. At home, I have an Asus Xonar DGX. What I'm looking for is some killer bass (I really enjoyed the M50's bass), but without compromises in the mids and highs. Oh, and I want something comfortable.
As a starting point, I was looking at AKG K550s, but from what I've read, they don't have the bass response that the M50s have. I was also looking at Denon D2000s, but they are absolutely not portable and are very hard to find (they're the reason I'll extend to $300).
Thanks in advance
