Hello guys, I have been troubled by a decision these days and cant settle between the ATH-M50 with the coiled cable and the Grado SR80i.
The ATH-M50 is extremely well rated, however looks like it was designed by an alien, however the Grado looks simplistic and good, however it apparently leaks sound and doesn't handle bass as well as the M50.
For me, I listen mostly to songs like these:
Just some House/R&B/Electro music with a pinch of bass.
Of course these don't define all my genres but you get the idea...
I currently own the HD 380's with a small amp, but use them rarely in the house because of the comfort level after some time. I'm looking for something that doesn't fully cover the ear, so that it can breathe, especially when I'm going on a trip to Hawaii soon with the plane ride.
My most important criteria is something that can provide me with long usage times, and that matches with my genre choice.
Any bro's willing to help this lost newb out?
Thanks for the support, I greatly appreciate it.
PS. I live in Europe
