I'm looking to replace my ATH-M50s that I've had for the past year. I love them, but they just aren't doing it for me anymore. I'm setting aside 220 dollars with the upcoming tax returns, and plan on buying some nicer headphones this year. I've been looking at AKG Q701s, and I found DT990 pro 250 OHMs for around 145 on amazon. I would be powering these with my pioneer SX424. I like a colorful sound, with warm sounds, and clean bass, but not so much that it rattles your head (The bass knob on my amp is always one notch below flat because of the M50s massive bass). I mainly listen to indie pop, disco, and IDM. Although I do like house music, and complextro.
Thanks for any help.
