I've been using my Sennheiser HD25 SP mk1s for a while now and although I really do enjoy the sound quality (especially coming from a £50 pair before) I'm finding the build quality/headband design is too flimsy and the headphones don't seem to sound as nice unamped through my phone. I use my headphones mostly plugged into my computer with a Asus Xonar DG soundcard
I've heard the M50s can be quite bass heavy and I'm not sure if this will affect the clarity of the mids or clarity in general. I find my HD25s great and I think that they sound very clean and pure (at least in comparison to cheaper "street" style headphones). Will I lose anything in terms of sound quality or clarity swapping them for the M50s? The biggest drawback sound-wise on my HD25s is the lack of bass in some songs, some songs sound great, but some songs have very lacklustre bass even though you can tell that that bassline should be impact-full... if you know what I mean.
Would the M50s be a good step up? or are there better headphones around the same price that would serve better?
