IMO. the M50 is bass heavy... it certainly has bass that is elevated a decent way above neutral.

I own both M50 and DT770 Pro 80ohm version. I would recommend DT770 over M50 for Hip-hop and bass heavy music in general. DT770 has more bass and high compared to M50 and is more comfortable. M50's will squeeze your ears and you cannot wear them for more than an hour. Downside of DT770 is that it doesn't fold nicely so the portability is an issue. It definitely benefits from even an entry level DAC and amp so if you can afford, you should invest in them too.
Hey there, willitblend No i am still here and no this thread is still relatively new..
jjcoolaus Thanks heaps for the websites definitely will be checking them out! "mainly home use" well i pretty much won't be using these for public just anywhere i can just jam out too on different computers ipods, that type of environment.
I am definitely considering getting a amp (most probably portable) but still i kinda want to get a headphone thats does not necessarily need an amp but i am willing if it really makes that much of a difference!
playdo2 & willitblend- Thankyou!! i had read many reviews and yeah thats why i did not take the m50's into consideration, although some people back them i don't want to take the risk
Atm it's still a toss up between the
Audio Technica ATH-PRO700MK2
SHURE SRH750D & the Beyerdynamic DT770 PRO-80ohm
I am also considering the custom pro ones and V-moda m100 (only thing is the price unless any of you can provide me a link to a good price?)
^ Everyone have you say and tell me which is i should go for :DDD
You guys are sick! A great little community going for audiophiles and beginners
The DT770 will be more comfortable. Overall better sound quality and are better for most genres of music.
The ATH-Pro700 MK2 are built extremely well,you can abuse them as much as you want. Excellent isolation keeps most noise out. Flat out better for portable use. Overall have more bass and are just a fun sounding pair of headphones. Excellent for Hip-hop and rap and dubstep. However not so good with other genres. Not terrible but they Beyers are better for Rock,Classical,Jazz and genres alike.
The Beyers still have lots of bass but the Pro700 MK2 are capable of more.
So if you really only listen to Hip-hop and rap,want to use on the go and want a well built and fun sounding pair of heaphones get the Pro700 MK2.
If you want better sound quality and want to listen to a wide set of genres and still have good bass then get the Beyers. But keep in mind they are hardly portable.
Also the Beyers have more of a punchy bass while the Pro700 MK2 have a deeper bass that you feel.
And keep in mind BOTH need to be amped or else they sound iffy. Fiio products are cheap and work well for the price.
Hell yeah willitblend !
Summed it up perfectly thank you
I'll definatly buy a fiio.
Im looking for that really deep vibrating feel bass.
On top of the two ATH-pro700 & the beyer's how do they compare to the v-moda m100's? And do you have any other recommendations that can top all three that's reasonably priced.
Thanks hope the questions don't annoy you
