    Hey all!

    I'm narrowing my choices for my next set of cans to replace the old garbage I'm using now, and I'd really like the input!

    The first contender is the ever-popular ATH M50. I know they're the go-to set for most people who are just getting into the game or looking for a nice pair they can wear around. That said, however, I really like what I've heard about the KRKs, because clarity (especially in the lower register) is really important to me.

    I also think these Onkyo cans are kind of interesting, too, though. I dig the minimalist look and I've heard they sound pretty fine as well, but the 20-30 ohm impedance makes me wonder if maybe the drivers might not be as nice as they say.

    I'm pretty new, though, and maybe my ideas about the importance lf driver size are wrong.

    Anyone willing to shed some light on the subject?

    I have learned so much since this time, and I am ashamed that I ever considered m50's an option.
