I need new headphones.
-Must be 'over ear'
-Sound quality is paramount (I'm happy to forgo active noise canceling and bluetooth)
-Good passive noise reduction
-Portable (For use at home, work and in transit, not for studio use)
-Suitable for a large range for music genres (Jazz, Alt-Rock, Acoustic and Spoken-word, etc)
-Optimized for a rich listening experience (I don't do any mixing myself)
Currently considering a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x as the best suited for the job.
Any advice would be much appreciated! There's a lot of bad reviews around that are unashamedly subjective, and to be frank, have been written by idiots who think the cardboard packaging is worthy of the first and most detailed paragraph of their review.
