i want to go with a pair of cans that don't need an amp to sound at least good as i don't like having too much stuff in my pockets, that's the same reason i went with m80 last time i had to choose a ew pair of cans.
i mean, on the go i listen to mp3 320kbps, good quality etc, but being on the go (home-work or going to a friend's place, suburbs, bus, plane) i'd rather spend 50 bucks more for a better headphone that doesen't need an amp than having one that need the amp.
here it's just a matter of comfort. if i'm at home i don't even use headphones so the amp would be useless to me.
anyone has ever tried or has the psb m4u can tell me id the ear pads are good quality or not ? by quality i mean if the black paint layer comes of like the xb500's after a year of non intensive use etc.
for the beyer dt150 : the only (visual) issue for me is that they don't seem very portable. and sound quality where would they be ranked in the comparative linked before ?
