Hey, everyone. I know that I had posted a thread not too long ago about other headphones, but due to recent complication, my budget has decreased by nearly half. After doing some extensive research I've found a pair of Audio Technica M50s for 120 bucks and a pair of Sony MDR7506s for around 90 bucks. Which one should I go with?
Information About Myself:
1) I would be using them at school, on the bus, when I'm outside, and possibly when I'm working out. I know that neither is as suited for outdoor use as ear-buds are, however I desire something that will provide a more filling sound.
2) I am into all sorts of music. I often listen to pop music, some rock (such as Queen), techno music (like that of Daft Punk and Basshunter), as well as pretty much everything else under the sun. I really only stay away from heavy metal and most rap, although I absolutely love the Epic Rap Battles of History raps. In addition to all of that, I often use my headphones to listen to Youtube videos as well as audiobooks on my Kindle.
3) I, despite trying to be gentle, am often rather rough on my stuff, so durability is rather important.
4) I have an Android phone and an Amazon Kindle, so it's important for them to work on those devices, and it would be nice if the M50's in-line controls would work on it as well, despite it not really being important.
Other suggestions would be appreciated, but I'm mainly focusing on these two (unless you believe that you have a better suggestion to fit my likes). Any other suggestions would need to be around 100 dollars. It would also be AMAZING if you could link me to either of these headphones for a cheaper price than what I've found. I've heard that you can find the M50s for less than 100 bucks, but I have yet to find this deal.
Thank you in advance and have a nice day.
Edit: Due to a conversation that I just had with Amazon, there is a chance that I may be able to get the M50s for 100 dollars, although it is not a guarantee. If I am able to get this price, is it still superior/inferior to the others, and how do they compare without the discount?
