That being said, they're brilliant headphones. I listen to all the music you do, and also use them for 7.1 Gaming using Razer's programme. Outstanding performance. Recommended, but maybe a bit to pricey for yourself.

 

You could have a look at the Ultrasone HFi 580s - what put me off at the time was the lack of the detachable cable, but that's only because my cable gets snagged on quite a bit.

Yeah ive read that. I for one literally sit on my computer listening to either people talking, music or games, sometimes all at once, for like 12 hours a day on average. I can be fussy so the rattling would piss me off, especially if I had to let them "cooldown" After everything I think im gonna go with the ATH-M50s. If they sound decent without an AMP ill get it that way, if not, ill buy the little Fiio portable one.

You should definitely see if they'll fix them under warranty of if you can exchange them wherever you purchased them from.

What I can tell you is that at 120ohms the AKGs would want an amp. The Senns don't require one but would probably improve with one.

What about your Fiio? it works with PC right? Im used to usb headphones so excuse the noob approach haha. Im envisioning plugging the ATH-M50 in the back of my comp, then when I purchase my clip on mic, just wacking that in the frontal jacks. Maybe i should get the E10, as its a USB fiio?

@Sxooter I'm currently attempting to do just that but the seller hasn't got back to me for a week now.

 

Beyerdynamic have said they will not deal with me and that I must do it through the seller.

 

@btar93 Let me know how they are because I'm contemplating getting them. I'm also looking at the HD25-1 II

The E6 is a small portable amp. It's not hugely powerful, just designed to help out a portable player (which it does well).

The E10 seems fairly popular, so it would probably be a good option for you.

Yeah, well ill order them tomorrow then see how they sound, I dont feel like throwing down 61 pounds on the E10 if the ATH-M50s dont really need amping.

They don't need amping. I would only suggest buying one if you plan on upgrading your headphones to some hi-fi ones in the future.
