I am looking for a pair of headphones that are a nice step up from my current audio technica m50s. I absolutly love my m50's. They were my first pair of decent headphones and now i can not listen to anything worse. It was the subtleties and the accurate bass, it was like hearing a song for the frist time! Its so fun! So now i am hooked and looking to move up to the next step. I do not have a store around me where i can go listen to high end cans. So i really rely on everyones opinions and reviews. What i look for in a headphone is Good noise isolation and accurate bass that is there, but not too over powering. They dont have to be portable. I know that open headphones dont have the best noise isolation, but i am willing to try them. So please pass on any info you may have.
i think the 770s are a nice step up in clarity, comfort and separation from the m50 but are also more difficult to drive. and kinda sound like cheap bass heavy iems when underpowered. at least they do on my phone. but when powered they are one of my favorites of all the cans i've heard for under 300$
