Alrighty, so a little while ago, I was recommended the Beyerdynamic DT 770; however, I then heard many places that it reveals sibilance quite a bit, and since one of the main uses I will use the headphones for is watching anime and listening to music in Japanese, which have a TON of sibilance, I decided that these would not make the cut.
Other than the earlier listed things, I will be skyping, watching videos, playing games, and listening to a bunch of music. The music I listen to is just about anything; however, I tend to gravitate towards J-Pop, or things with female vocals, piano's, violins, guitars, and percussion.
So, with that in mind, I have basically nailed it down to two contestants.
The ATH-M50's and the Brainwavz HM5's with an amp around $40-50
So my main question is, If the HM5's had an amp like the Fiio E11 (Just found out that the E11 doesn't work while charging), would it have deeper bass than the M50's without an amp?
Which one has better comfort, or can get better comfort for semi cheap, as these will sometimes be used for 10+ hours at a time?
Which one leaks less sound, as that is important?
Also, I guess in general, are there any pro's and con's between each other that you could bestow upon me?
If you need anymore information, don't hesitate to ask!
