Hello Head-Fi Community!
I'm new here but I frequently visit the site for headphone reviews and comparisons and I must say it's been very helpful. :D
Just decided to become a member now. :)
So now, I wanted to ask your help for some headphone suggestions.
I own an ATH-M50. Bought them when they were fresh off the market. They were my first set of cans and I must say I loved using them. Picked them over a pair of Beats Studio headphones. After more than 2 years of owning them, the pads and the headband have deteriorated, but the SQ is still great. Now I'm thinking of owning another pair which is at par, if not better, than the M50.
Before I go to my choices, I'll share a bit about what music I listen to. Generally, I listen to anything from classicals to rock to R&B to string. So I guess I'm looking for an all-arounder? Pardon me if I sound contradicting at times. Still have a lot to learn here. :)
I'm considering the following headphones (in no particular order):
1. Sony MDR-1R
2. Bose AE2w
3. Beyerdynamic DT990
4. Sony XB-920
5. Creative Aurvana Live
I've received comments from peers that my choices are in different leagues of their own (DT990's being open-back while the others are closed-back) but I just wanna widen my choices and get suggestions and thoughts from the people who know more than I do.
So yeah, that's it! Hope to learn a lot from this forum as a whole.
Thanks in advance!
