Hi, This is my first post here. I made this account because I have a big dilemma and that is that I don't know what headphones I need to get. Here's some backstory, skip over this next paragraph if you don't care. So I've only ever had about 3 expensive pairs of headphones. A few years ago for Christmas I got a Beats Solo on-ear headphone (maybe solo2 but i've no idea). I thought they were pretty nice, but I was only 14 so i didn't really know much about headphones. It was just about music and they played music. The headband broke after a couple years so I got a new pair of Beats Studio 2.0 wired in early 2016 because they were marked 33% off. I really liked their sound, and perhaps I even took them for granted. They were bassy, powerful, fun. and now I know they are "v-shaped", which sums it up. They sounded really great on certain albums that I love due to their signature (D'Angelo's Black Messiah, Beyonce's self-titled, etc). However, early this year their earpads started to fall apart and the headband too. Eventually their headband broke too. So in about March/April of this year I really start getting into headphones and researching and understanding all this overrated audiophile stuff (oops) For my birthday this year, after extensive researching, I bought a pair of Oppo PM-3's. Almost everything I read about them was high-praise and acclaim. However, after having them for a couple weeks, I noticed I was enjoying music significantly less. They don't have the dynamics or immersiveness of the beats. Even listening to folk records and albums that aren't very bassy (Carrie & Lowell, The ArchAndroid, etc.), I found these albums much less enjoyable. I've read in many places that these headphones are pretty polite and "dark" sounding, so maybe they just aren't for me. A few months after, I decided to try another pair of headphones. I ordered the Audio Technica ATH-M50X after reading countless reviews saying how they are the best headphones under $200 and how they are slightly warmer sounding (which is what I was looking for, I thought). At the time of me typing this, I've had the M50X for about a week. I was initially impressed because I noticed I was enjoying music again. But they are significantly less comfortable, less clear-sounding (muddier), worse for gaming, and worse quality for watching videos. I'm honestly pretty disappointed by them and I'm really confounded by all the love for them. So right now I'm very frustrated because I've bought 2 headphones that are supposedly great for their respective classes and both have fatal flaws IMO and have me missing my Beats (yes I know boo Beats suck). I use Tidal HiFi to listen to music (use my Android phone mostly but my laptop sometimes). I have an eclectic taste in music (everything from Beyonce to Arcade Fire to Joanna Newsom to Kendrick Lamar) and like almost every genre except for country and heavy rock/metal. So I'm really looking for headphones that can take on all genres. I'm really looking for closed-back, under $400 headphones. Any suggestions? What should I do? TL;DR: After buying a pair of Oppo PM-3's and ATH M50X and being disappointed by both (Oppo's for their boringness and lack of dynamics, M50X for their thick and somewhat muted sound), I really don't know what to do. Both headphones have me missing my Beats Studio 2.0's, but I'm looking for a more musical and fun headphone to upgrade to. Advice?
