    Hi everyone,
     
    I know next to nothing about headphones, and this would be my first serious purchase. I've been doing quite a bit of reading, and it seems like there's both a lot of good and a lot of bad written about the ATH-M50s. I've also got a few other options to think about:
     
    1. Sony MDR 7506
    2. AKG 240
    3. Sennheiser HD 449
     
    I don't listen to just one genre, so I'm looking for a pair with both decent bass and treble, an all-around good beginner's set of headphones. I'm definitely not limited to just these options. My price range is around $100, and I don't really want to go much higher than that. Any advice or suggestions?
     
    Thanks!

    Hi,
     
    You should also consider Takstar Pro 80 (or Gemini HSR-1000 same headphones)

    And, Logitech UE6000 (This can be found under 100 nowadays)

    Best Luck!

    V-Moda recently dropped their M80 to $150 and it will be a solid alternative to ATH M50.

    +1 on the Donscorpio Dolphins. I recently got a pair. Great sound.

    The UE6000 are another good pair to look into. :)

    Do you know of any takstar pro 80s with just a straight cord?
     
  7. aaronchan10
    Donscorpio dolphins? I tried googling these, but couldn't seem to find any sellers...
     
  8. aaronchan10
    Where did you get your dolphins from? I can't seem to find a seller...

    There also happens to be a used pair of them going up on the trades forum (if you don't mind used, of course).

    Just saying, dont count out the M50's yet.. They are AMAZING! Would recommend getting a little amp for them to for DAT BASS[​IMG]

    Yeah, I've heard they're really good, but I don't listen to much bass-intensive music. And the price tag is just out of my reach :wink:

    Thanks! I see they're a foreign company. Safe to order from?
