I'm about to purchase my first pair of Headphones and I'm torn between two pairs.

Hi,

 

I have been doing research for the past few days and I have narrowed it down (ha!) to the AKG K550s and the soon to be released Musical Fidelity-100. I have a budget of around £130 and I plan on doing pretty much all my listening on these at home.The MF-100s are portable so I'm not sure if that means that they wont be as good as full size Headphones but they have been getting some really high praise and a couple of decent reviews so I feel like I should wait a bit for them to be released or be reviewed more.

 

I primarily listen to metal and rock and all sub genres of both so I guess the K550s may be better for me as one of the only reviewers said that the MF-100s were great for Electronic music but I just feel torn between them. I got a Fiio E11 and I will be buying a sansa clip+ soon to go with them. Thanks for any help/guidance

Hey, I'm no expert, but for what it's worth the Grado SR80i is around £130. Look 'em up - they look very retro, I guess you either love the look or....not. But they sound beautiful.

Good luck!
