Hello! I'm new to Head-Fi. I'm looking for a decent pair of headphones for listening to music around campus and also if I go out. I already have a decent set of headphones for listening at home (but they connect through USB so I only use them on my desktop).
I just recently purchased the Audio Technica ATH M50x, but I'm not quite satisfied with them. The sound is incredible, and I have a Fiio e6 amp to help them out. However, I don't find them very comfortable. They feel heavy on my head, and I feel like they squeeze my ears too much. The sound isolation is great, but I feel like it's a little too "in my head". They also are a bit too bulky to bring with me everywhere I go.
So what I'm looking for, from most important to least important, is:
1) Sound quality - I like a little bit more bass, but definitely don't want the mids or highs drowned out. I hate muddy sound.
2) Comfort - I'll most likely be wearing these for hours on end so they need to be more comfortable
3) Portability - Can't be TOO bulky
4) Sound isolation - This is somewhat important, because I definitely don't want open headphones. But there is zero soundstage on the m50's. So I guess I need a balance? If that's possible.
I've been doing a lot of browsing and I can't seem to find a pair that has what I'm looking for. There's so many! If anyone can give me a recommendation I would appreciate it, thanks.
I would like to keep the cost around $150, but I can go higher if the pair is that good.
