I've been looking around in the forums trying to find other posts that fit my bill so that I didn't need to post my own but there is just so much out there that I'm overwhelmed. This is my first post so here goes!
So I currently own the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 and its been a blast. Its left me looking for more and I am looking for an upgrade.
I listen to classical music, orchestral music and movie soundtracks. I want the bass because with the M50 I feel like there is a certain emptiness at the low end. With orchestras and movie soundtracks there are some which I classify as "epic" music and it just doesn't sound as good without solid bass in it that really gives you the "feels" :) That being said, naturally I also want to be able to hear the instruments in the orchestra and want the headphones to be clear and have decent mids and highs. I have a preference towards a closed pair of headphones. I won't be amping the headphones but may consider getting one if it makes a big difference.
So like I said I was looking around the forums and I kinda found 3 pairs of headphones that looks like they fit the bill but of course I'm open to other suggestions.
Here are the headphones:
1. Audio-Technica ATH-WS99
2. Beyerdynamic DT-990 (I know its open but I put it here because there were just so many suggestions for it)
3. V-Moda Crossfade M-100 (I was wondering if the cups on these are too small and it feels like an on ear. Can't get my hands on one to try it out)
Something else that is making it difficult for me to choose is that I want the new pair of headphones to be a decent step up from the M50 so that it will sate my desire for more for a longer amount of time :)
Sorry for the long post guys! I am still fairly new to all this so forgive me if I have overlooked something. I look forward to the incoming flood of wisdom Thanks!
