looking for new closed headphones in the $200 - $250 range

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hey guys,so recently i purchased the Audio Technica ATH-M50's, but was not too satisfied with a multitude of things.

first of all, i found the bass to be pretty weak

 

second, they just generall weren't very comfortable

and lastly, the fixed-cable(non-detachable) bothered me -.-
 

 

 

 

anyways! after returning them and receiving a refund, im back on the hunt for another pair of headphones!

I'd have to say that powerful bass is #1 on my list

although, crisp & clear mids/treble would be great aswell

the kinds of music i mostly listen to are Korean pop(dance-beats with good bass)

and example of such would be something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAbokV76tkU

 

but i balance it out with lots of hard rock & heavy metal

 

 

 

thanks for helping a newbie out! and if you have any questions or need more info feel free to ask! :D

Sony MDR-1R, or try amping the M50.

Hello!

I'm afraid it's not the "not enough bass problem".

After looking at the ATH-M50 graph: http://graphs.headphone.com/graphCompare.php?graphType=0&graphID[]=2941&scale=30 there's a smooth roll off bass and a recessed bass at around 60Hz~ to 100Hz~

I have tested the ATH-M50 before but the graph is just to give you additional information xD Maybe you should look into the UE6000 that offer crystal clear sound with better bass respond etc!

Hope it helps!

Look into the Ultrasone HFI-580. Here's a discussion thread on Head-Fi: http://www.head-fi.org/t/534029/fight-the-beats-hype-ultrasone-hfi-580-hfi-580-appreciation-thread

Cable is not detachable, but the newest edition of this headphone comes with a short cable (for portable use) + extension in the box. Comfort may be similar to M50. Keep in mind if it's the clamp of the headphones which is a comfort issue to you, that can loosen up over time.l
