Hello guys, I've been doing researches about headphones the whole week! about 6 hours a week or more than that!! so im still not into the audophile world as my knowledge about headphone is still fairly low . so basically, I DO NOT WANT an amp with me while i use the headphones, as i find the amp a little bit trouble some and its like there's alot of 'electrostatic' around u which i dont like that nor do my parents. so i found that the M50 are SUPERB w/o amps. i also've been doing my research about the Sennheisers. the compliment by the users was so much that it overtake the cons of the sennheisers cans.. so i end up considering these: ( or is there any more u guys could recommend. the 650HD are definitely great BUT its too pricey. and the HD 598 are great too, still its pricey. same goes to the 600 HD) 1) http://www.jaben.com.hk/ProductView.asp?ID=431&SortID=245 2) http://www.jaben.com.hk/ProductView.asp?ID=338&SortID=245 3) http://www.jaben.com.hk/ProductView.asp?ID=432&SortID=245 Or all those ^ not worth at all/ better to add in a few extra bucks to get a high end ones? I basically listen to almost every music genre.. sometimes im in the mood i would go for K-POP, sometimes rock, sometimes a new catchy-pop song made its debut and i would probably listen to it.. techno probably only Skrillex.... and sometimes i'd also listen to John Mayer/Joseph Vincent ( yes he;s youtube star) But the problem with ME is that when i buy headphones and the headphones do not provide bass ( like the ATH700) i would feel the headphones are a waste.. lol its just me i guess.. BUT i would'nt also want the headphones to be OVERPOWERED by bass.. i sometimes listen to John Mayer ( country) so i would want Clarity, so i could hear him sing as if im in front of him.. ya know what i mean.. On the other side, im from Asia, so the M50 would cost ALOT more than Amazon(100-130$ for a new pair of m50). and if i buy it from my country it would be around 165-170$. But what im concern about is that, mostly everyone spoke out of their mind that the M50 are worth for their price which is (100-130$) but right now i can only get it for (165-170$) will it still be worth it? anyways besides those i've also considered the DT 770 pro from Beyerdynamics. as i've mentioned I WOULDNT be using an AMP. so will the 770 sound better than M50/ all of the sennheisers i've mentioned above?. The dt 770 pro would be a little expensive that could cost me up to ( 250$!) and at last, how about these SONY headphones? 1)http://www.jaben.com.hk/ProductView.asp?ID=287&SortID=183 2) http://www.jaben.com.hk/ProductView.asp?ID=286&SortID=183 i doubt most of u guys wouldn't recommend me these Sony tho. About comfortability, i would want a Headphones that can go over my ear( like the QC 15 bose/ Logitech G35) because i have the Beats studio ( Dont hate on me, its a gift) and it Freakin hurts after an hour or so. As i do not want to ' feel the cushion on my ears, that would press my ears and cause physical pain, and P/S: im wearing glasses but my glasses dont put pressure to my head because my glasses dont literally 'stick' on to my head(sides). Last but not least, i would use the headphones mostly at home. or sometimes i'll use it outdoor. I would basically use it for Music a little movies and a little gaming. And i protect my headphones well.. i wouldnt touch it if my hands are dirty/ not wash. yes i know im kinda 'b1tchy'. But that's just me. so yea, now currently in a Dilemma in picking WHICH sennheisers/M50/770 Pro WITHOUT AN AMP.. so yea i apologise for the long post. Have a great day everyone.
