Recommendations for closed overhead headphones - $150 price range

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

  

  I've recently made the decision to purchase an overhead headphone, and I'm currently seeking any and all recommendations. I primarily listen to EDM music (progressive, electro, trance, DnB, hardstyle), so this will be the genre I'll be purchasing for. I 'm not sure if I absolutely need "music purity", or to have the output resemble the input as much as possible, but I do enjoy a good bass that decays slowly and doesn't completely drown the other frequencies, and a rich treble.

 

Sound quality is important, but a pair that would remain intact for 5+ years is the greater priority. My price range is around $150, and I'm currently deciding between ATH-M50S or Sony MDR-1506 / MDR-V6, based on positive reviews. However, since reviews don't specify the types of music the headphones are good for, I'm turning to any enthusiasts that may be able to offer a better perspective!

 

Thanks!

M50's are probably the way to go. Nothing bad about the Sony's, but they don't have as much bass as the M50's which is essential for EDM. 

I have a friend who has abused his M50's over a few years and they still work. If you pamper yours you'll probably be very happy with them for a long time.

What sources do you plug your headphones into?

Gemini HSR-1000 (Takstar Pro 80) headphones, $50-$60.
