Both are available for abooout the same price (120sh dollars)
Been searching for about a week now and just based on comments and reviews ive narrowed down to these two
Basically need something with:
-Good noise isolation as i will use on train and plane
-Good bass not flat monitoring for studio, listen to house trance electronica dubstep so not just bass more all round with a good bass
-Good build quality
And any other perks, if neither of these 2 what do you recommend for the price range and type of music? :)
 
Really really appreciate any feedback, THANKYOU :)

Hi,
 
You should consider Takstar Pro 80 (or Gemini HSR-1000 - same headphones)
 

 
Logitech UE6000s are also a very good pick and can be found under 100 nowadays

Best Luck!

Comments on the gemini were that the headphones very flat not coloured and oerfect for monitoring when producing songs so outcome after mastering is good i realised i dont want that i want a fun sounding headphone with colour and life but if not those atleast decent bass :) the logitech were and keep coming back onto my shortlist but im a sucker for the V Moda Design ._. and the sound quality of the ATH generally seems hard to match so i didnt think the UE6000 had a place :/

the M40x is tuned flat. It doesn't mean they can't reproduce good/plenty of bass, but now you know
 
The Denon ADH1100 is a good option for you, check them out. Also the JVC HA-S680

Takstar Pro 80 are not that neutral in real life, they have a measurable 5 dB bass boost from 40Hz to 160Hz that makes them warm and punchy. These headphones only seem neutral when compared with basshead headphones like Takstar HD5500. Same happens with Shure SRH-840, definitely not neutral but neutral in comparison with highly colored sounding headphones.
I haven't heard UE6000 yet, but as far as I've read they should sound better than ATH-M50, specially if you prefer a laid back sound signature with soft treble.
