SoundMagic HP100 vs Audio-Technica ATH-M50

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

My friend recently ran over my Sennheiser HD201 with a shopping cart, and I've been digging around for some affordable but high quality over/around-the-ear headphones.

These are currently the two contenders that I'm having trouble choosing from, since I've read many positive reviews for both.

So, if you'd care to recommend me which one to take, I'll be happy.

My preferences are, in order from high to low:

 

Sound Quality and frequency balance

 

Minimum background noise interference

 

Comfort

 

Build Quality

 

Price

 

My music taste ranges from every genre of Rock from Classic Rock like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and the likes to extreme Death Metal and Deathcore (e.g. Cannibal Corpse, Death, Suicide Silence, Make Them Suffer).

I also listen to Jazz, stuff from the mid 40s and onwards.

I would guess the $200 SoundMagic HP100 sounds better then the $125 ATH-M50s.

My guess, too. I'd say it's easily a safe bet smily_headphones1.gif
