Grado SR80 over ATH-M50?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Will game a lot so soundstage is important i suppose? 

Other than that mostly trance music.

 

M50 for 129$, SR80 for 140$.

 

Thanks.

SR-80s are good but forget about long gaming sessions , the M50s to my ears sound extremely grainy and harsh ..so night gaming - no good , your ears will not be happy about the harshness 

Why not take a look at the Brainwavz HM5 , subtle , much much better comfort than either , fantastic sound !

The HM5 look sweet, 139.5$ with free shipping. You know how will they handle trance music versus the other two HPs  though?

They slay my "better" headphones when it comes to bass ..they have a great extension , more mid-bass accentuation but still incredible for the price , extremely tight and well defined

M50 is no go for gaming and sound stage. Ears get warm and uncomfortable after 1-2 hrs usage.

The NVX XPT100 are the same cans as the HM5 and go for $80 online, they are reasonably neutral. The M50 have more of a boosted bass and scooped mids if that's what you're looking for.

Too bad the shipping is 34$. Will get something better on black friday.
