Upgrade from Beyerdynamic DT770 pro 250ohm

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone. I started out on ATH-m50s and moved on to Beyerdynamic DT770 Pros 250ohm and am now looking for an upgrade. I like the bass of both headphones and would like my next pair to be bassy as well. I'm open to open back or closed back. I currently only have a Fiio e11 amp but am open to getting a new one to drive the new headphones I will get. I mainly listen to EDM. Open to any price range really up to $500. I'm not a complete audiophile so if the difference between $300 and $500 cans is very minor I may not be able to notice it. However, I do want to experience a different sound just as I have from my ATH-m50s vs DT770s. For some comparison I enjoy the sound of the DT770s > ATH-m50s.

 

Any recommendations would be great. The only brands I had in mind that I was curious to try were maybe some AKGs (Q701s maybe?) or some Sennheiser HDs. I'm not sure if some of these will be actual upgrades or side-grades though. I'm also open to any other brands. When I was looking for cans after my ATH-m50s I had never heard of Beyerdynamic but I now love them. I was also considering some HiFimans but wasn't sure which was the best for my tastes and value.

If you don't mind open back or closed back, I'd stick to open back. As far as open back's go, the Sennheiser HD 598's are a definite upgrade from your current headphones at only $180. But they do have a natural sound, not overly bass-y at all. Lets set down the rules though. Open back headphones mimic a real room. They make you hear sounds coming from different directions. However since EDM never really was in a real room, open back headphones won't do anything special for them. So you may prefer closed back, because you get portability as well. That being said, I think you should get a pair of V-Moda M100's. They are $300, closed back, built like a tank, and amazing for EDM. They look really stylish and are more portable than your previous headphones. They have a detachable cord, replaceable shields, and even have that bass that you want. Go for it. You won't be disappointed.
