    Hi everyone
    I`m willing to buy new headphones
    I want over-ear headphones
    i pre-owned the ATH-M50 and they are great but I`m looking for headphones that i can get out with it
    I thought about 3 options from massdrop

    I`m hearing all kind of music and I will listen to music while I`m studying at the library so I need to be the only one that hearing the music
    thank you!

    None of those are for the library. They are all open. Maybe the Meze 99 Neo?

    You need to stick to closed back headphones or IEMs for use in a library.All the headphones you linked above are open backed and will surely disturb those around you.

    What will you be using to drive the headphones(phone,DAP,amp)?

    I forget to mention that I want over-ear headphones

    What is wrong with the ATH M50?

    The two other closed back reference headphones that compete in that same price range are the DT770 and The AKG K550.

    I can not find the frequency graph of that particular model. But if Koss says that it's reference for studio work and that the reviews are good, then it has to be considered in your choice for sure! :)

    I have those and I enjoy like them....especially for the price. I bought mine from Amazon UK for £119 but I see it is £109 now. The form factor is well suited to library use. Mine came in a nice flat case. No complaints about the sound. I can listen to them for hours at a time.

    I am not in the USA so I don't order from Massdrop anymore. Been hit too hard by taxes and customs fees.

    B&O H6 is also a nice closed portable in the price range.

    Why not the MASSDROP HE-4xx ?

    Where have you seen it?

    LOL. Got mine before the dropped ended, but you can find them on E-Bay

    Note that this is another open-backed headphone so again may present problems for library use
