Like the title says, I'm looking for an upgrade from the ATH M50s, Basically I'd like something that is bassy but clear and accurate however I also want to be able to feel the bass. I only have the Amperiors to compare them to, I find the Amperiors to be better in sound in some if not a lot of cases however I feel they lack in bass energy (hence the "feel the bass"). I feel like the sound from the Amperiors come from the mids and going up and down as needed for the audio. While the M50s start a bit lower then climbs up which is why I prefer the sound on the Amperiors but I like the feel of the M50s more.
I'd prefer closed back circumaural headphones over on-ear like the Amperiors. I also find that the M50s slide off my head, I'm not sure if I'm just wearing them wrong or If I just have a weird shaped head. The only way I've gotten them to stay on my head is to press down on them at the very back of my head.
I have done some research on my own. Currently the one's I'm thinking of looking for are: DT770s (250 ohm), Pioneer HDJ2000 Denon AHD2000, or the V-MODA Crossfade M-100. Really I'd like to keep the price to be under 300$ but am able to go over that but not by much. I also have an Amp the C&C BH2, in fact I'd also like to know if these would drive the DT770s properly as well as the others in the list. If someone could help and point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate that. If I'm being too vague please point it out so I can explain more if I can.
edit: I forgot to mention I do want to use these for travel as well, I don't mean they have to be portable, just not on the huge side of things, I'll also be using said headphones on a PS vita with the C&C BH2. Not much in the ways of EQ there on the Vita.
