Hey everybody! Im completely new to the headphone scene as far as picking a good pair. I already own a pair of beats solo hd which i completely regret buying at the time i got them they were 200 something dollars and now they are 99!! but im posting because I want to upgrade to a real set of headphones because from what ive researched beats are lets face it... not that great. Ive narrowed my choices down to the Audio technica ath-m50 because it seems to be talked up well i just hope its not all hype! the ultasone HFI 780 because from what i read they sound like your sitting at a concert as well as have good sound quality. and lastly the sennheiser HD25 1 II because people said they are well priced and have a good sound!
I listen to hard rock heavy metal type stuff from bands such as Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Korn, Love and Death, and then metalcore stuff like Issues and Of mice & men. I even love the chili peppers and classic rock!! I would like my headphones to really captivate the sound of all the different instruments with good sound quality, i dont consider my self a "bass head" but i do like quality bass as long as its not annoying and stupid to where thats all you hear.
I cant say this enough either I would like the headphones to sound better than my beats solo hd.
Ive been leaning towards the audio technicas because they seem to be consistently well reviewed I just want them to be what they say and not an overhyped headphone like beats. I find a bad review on them every so often so i just need to make sure they are solid.
If anyone can steer me in the right direction that would be so helpful!
