only peole familiar with audio technica m50 please help in choosing new headphones with woow factor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone

 

I know I posted some threads for recommending me a new heaphone

 

AND I AM TORN simply because in my country we don't have stores that let you try out headphones before buying them so I have to order online

 

Now I am an owner of Audio technica ath m50, I want a new headphones that give me a wooooowwww awe as if I was driving a fiat and suddenly started driving a mercedes.

 

I have a budget of about 1000 USD, and I don't care whether its open or closed cans anymore as I am so confused which to buy, but it has to have all elements of good tight bass, smooth nice deep vocal , and good treble 

 

I listen to rock, synthpop, metal, pop

 

I want to ask anyone who owned headphones and wants to recommend new ones, if possible to listen to a song by

clan of xymox - in your arms again, as  its that the type of music i like to listen to that but I am difficulty listening to it on my ath m50, and I want to see if your headphones can provide great sound for that particular song as a test, so does it suit open cans or closed cans 

 

please help, also if you can try to listen to another song to test your headphones before recommending me depeche mode- black celebration. Also if you can test a song called Stay on these roads by Aha as in this song he goes into really high ranges. another song is shout by tears of fears as i am dying to listen to this song in the best possible way

 

I will not ask again for a set of headphones in other thread, but this thread is for pre-owners of ath m50 to answer as I then will know that they will know what I currently hear and that it will be a definite upgrade.

 

I am using currently fiio x3, amped by e11, and on its way is a ifi ican nano headphone amp

 

my music is mostly flac files and I chose these songs as I know how much I struggle with that type of music using my m50

 

I got recommendation for phlips x1, some mentioned v mods, other dt990, what I want is a headphone that immerses me in music as if I am their with them in studio with good bass, warm mids and nice treble 

 

I was so excited about the alpha dog, but I am awaiting to see if any alpha dog owners can recommend them to my taste , then decided for the v mods, and then I keep getting the philips x1 being recommended. 

 

HE500 was on my thought but I am not sure anymore, I was even open up to pay more than 1000 USD going for HD800, but reading how hard it is to drive, especially I don't like to listen only on stereo amplifier , as I like to listen from DAPs amped by portable amps. Soon  my combination will be fiio x5 and ifi ican nano

Almost all the best cans in this price range require a decent (read--with good power and a quality) amp.  Without one, your choices are very limited.  You can consider Grados, Alessandros, Fostex closed cans, Sony MDR 7520 and the Audio Technica ATH-AD 2000X.
