Hey ya'll,

 

I've been researching for about a week now and just seem to get more and more confused. I currently own an ATH-M50 and am pretty happy with it, although the bass doesn't satisfy me enough. I use these headphones at work. I'm looking at getting something to commute with, so something that doesn't leak too much sound. I mostly listen to Metal and Rap. My budget is around USD $200. 

 

I'll be playing the music from my Galaxy S4 or Laptop. I could stretch the budget up to $300 to include a portable dac/amp. What do you guys think of the above choices, is there anything else that would better suit my requirements? Noise isolation isn't a major concern, music should hopefully drown that out. 

 

Just realized that the HE-400 is about $320. Would it really be that much superior to the others mentioned to justify the extra cost?

So I own the HE-400 and UE9000 (sound signature pretty much the same as the UE6000, but it has the Bluetooth option), and you definitely want to stay away from the HE-400 if you are looking for a pair of headphones that don't leak sound. I use the HE-400 at home as it's open and loud. I use the UE-9000s at work where the closed-back is more isolating. In terms of which would be better for the type of music you listen to, all I can say is that I find the UE-9000 to be slightly muddier in sound (it just doesn't sound as crisp to me, but I'm not sure if that's the open vs. closed) but it has more bass. Vocals are a bit harsh on the HE-400s sometimes, so I actually find it less fatiguing to listen on the UE-9000s

Thanks for the reply. That rules the 400 out. Has anyone here used both the amperior and the UE6000, if so how do they compare?

This also looks great, does anyone know if the seller is legit? Price seems a bit too good to be true.
