ATH-M50 or cks 77x ?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

the cks 77x  are around 80$ and they seem to be good, the ath m50 are around 120$ and a lot of people seem to like them. I cant decide which one to get, because the m50 might have better sound because they are bigger, but my nexus 4 might not provide enough power to get good sound quality. unfortunately i cant buy them both because i have other expenses and only work part time because im still in high school. which one should i choose.  -thanks

Heya,

 

They will power fine from your Nexus 4. They are efficient. It's over-stated the need for amplifiers on these kinds of headphones, and portable headphones.

 

Suggestions for alternatives:

 

Ultrasone HFi 580 (bassy)

Ultrasone HFi 780 (balanced)

Audiotechnica PRO700MKII (bassy)

Brainwavz HM5 (balanced)

AudioTechnica WS55 (bassy)

AudioTechnica ES700 (balanced)

Shure SRH440 (balanced)

Shure SRH840 (balanced)

Vmoda M80 (balanced; warm)

AKG K167 (balanced; warm)

Beyer Custom One Pro (bassy)

 

Very best,

The cks77x will provide better bass quantity and quality. Bass centric iem, more forward mids ans highs. M50 is designed as a balanced headphone. It depends on your sound preference. Cks77x is more fun and m50 is more analytical and balanced.
