Hi - I'm looking for headphones around the price range of the M50s and 558s, and I've narrowed down my choices to those two. I just wanted to know which ones would be the better pick for me.
Used for -
Music - My tastes are quite eclectic , but I will mostly be listening to animal collective etc. Note that this is only for home use, they will not be used on the go.
Occasional gaming - Don't really care for SQ here
Movies - Again, SQ isn't an issue here.
M50 pros ( for me )
-Closed - won't leak sound in or out (this is quite important to me, but if the 558s are significantly better I might reconsider)
-Build quality - most reviews point out the poor build of the 558s
-Bass - most reviews state that the 558s are lacking in bass
-Soundstage? (I don't really know what this is)
-Many reviews state their superior sound quality
So, which is the better pick? And if anyone has other considerable suggestions please post them.
