Need much more info. What don't you like about the Bose? What do you like? Do you want more/less bass, more/less highs, smoother/punchier mids, wider soundstage, more isolation, more volume, more clarity, etc, etc? What do you use the headphones for? What is driving them?
I use my Bose mostly for listening to music for extended times. I loved them at first. But then I realized that the bass was too overwhelming. I can't listen to the mids and the highs aren't crisp. I have the ATH M-50 and I really like them, I would like them better if the bass was more punchy. I would use the shures for listening to music. And also for creating songs and mixing them and playing guitar. I don't want too much bass, but I want them there, and basically what I want is a well balanced sound. Thanks!
