okay, so i don't pretend to be some super-nerdy audiophile. however i know what good headphones are, and what they sound like. once i graduate from high school i plan to go to college...and purchase some new high end cans. the high end brand i am most familiar with would definitely be audio technica. i currently own ath-ckm50a earbuds and i have spent a decent amount of time with some of their headphones, eg. the ath-a900. however, i am always open to new things. so i was wondering how AKG compares to audio technica and other such high end brands. and i am mostly referring to their professional headphones in the $200-$300 price range. any help would be appreciated!! i'm looking for info on sound quality mostly, their strengths and weaknesses, and what genres they handle well. thanks!
