I currently own the SONY MDR1-R, but I'm not really satisfied with it, mainly because it doesn't extend deep at all in the bass.
So I'm looking for an upgrade.
I listen to many genres, but mostly electronic (all kinds: trance, house, dubstep, vocal trance, trap, alternative, and many more).
I really enjoy punchy, deep, tight, detailed well-extended bass (which is why I don't really enjoy my current MDR-1R), but I don't want the bass to dominate the overall sound balance, like it does on the Beats by Dre (IMO).
So I really want to still have a great non-recessed midrange, that can make vocals sound lively.
The treble must also be well extended, so the overall sound feels balanced with good resolution, clarity and detail.
I also enjoy a wide soundstage, especially because I'll also use my new headphones for competetive gaming (CS:GO), and also of course because a larger soundstage makes the music sound more immersive.
My max budget is 400 $. It's a must that the headphones are closed-back and provides decent noise isolation.
I'm mainly gonna use the phones directly plugged into a X-Fi Titanium HD in my PC:
Giving my preferences, which of the following headphones (or maybe something else) would you recommend me:
NAD VISO HP50
Audio Technica ATH-M50x
Thanks in advance!
