Hey guys, been browsing here for a little while. Want to get my first pair of decent headphones. I have been using speakers for most of my listening and some Sony MDR-XB500's, which i don't especially like. They were given to me by a friend.
My price is around $100-200. Right now i either want to get AKG-k240 or ATH-M50s.
I want good comfort, accurate sound, good build, and somewhat portability.
I listen to a wide variety of music including Rock, Shoegaze, Metal, Electronic, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Classical.
Will be using them for at home listening and sometimes at school. I want something that doesn't look too bulky, and doesn't have much leakage.
With the semi-open design of the Akg's how much do they leak?
Are the ATH-m50's bass overpowering, are the mids recessed?
Give me some advice and direction. Thanks Head-fi.
