Hey guys. So I have narrowed down my new pair of budget headphones to the Audio-tecnica ATH-M30X or the Superlux 681-Evo. I know that they're somewhat similar in price. But when it comes to the quality of their sound, build and overall value, I am not sure which to get.

Can you please give me some input? I'll be listening on either my android phone, ipod nano or from my laptop. I'm considering buying a mobile amp but am not sure if I should.

Thanks for the help ahead of time.

I haven't heard either of those. Perhaps this thread will give you more insight into the EVOs: http://www.head-fi.org/t/670051/review-superlux-hd681-evo

For the price range of the M30X, you might also look into the Takstar Pro 80 (which is also sold as the Gemini HSR-1000): http://www.head-fi.org/t/585356/the-takstar-technical-pro-gemini-greathon-cyberx-qpad-thread

I looked over both of the Takstar and Gemini, both seem to be decent cans. But I came across a deal on the ATH-M30X on Amazon - I was able to get them for $54.99 through a seller that was offering a discount code. I jumped and grabbed them as that's the best price I've ever seen for them. (select Amazing Deals Online and use promo code ATH20OFF)

What I'm planning on doing is seeing how I like them and then possibly grabbing either the EVO or the Takstar/Gemin.
