|You're going to get two answers here--1.) Get the ATH-M50's because they're awesome, and 2.) Don't get the ATH-M50's because everyone else is telling you to get them. Hopefully you've got some high quality music tracks that will actually be worth getting good headphones to listen to, because otherwise you might as well go to Target and get some $20 Sonys. That all being said...I have ATH-M50's myself, and I absolutely love them. |
Make sure you realize, though, that they're for studio monitoring, which means you're going to get the most natural sound possible. The M50's have excellent bass sound as far as monitors go, but it's not going to give you the commercial boom that's really popular. There's also not going to be any sort of artificial isolation (keeping other people from being able to hear your music) or noise cancellation (keeping you from being able to hear other people). If this is important, you might try something from Bose or a different pair of Audio Technica cans. But if you're looking to listen to music as it was meant to be listened to (naturally without enhancements, as the musicians made it), then the M50's are at least top 3 in their price range, and probably the best.
|Yeah ATH-M50s are pretty good, some of the Ultrasone models in that price range are good and logitech ue6000 are decent from what I hear.|
If you're listening at home and not concerned about noise leakage go for some open-air headphones like Grado.
|What is your budget? |
|i have the HD25s and they're awesome, really good sound quality definitely worth it|
|ATH - M50 bro|
|Get some hd 558's instead|
|sens r get out|
|Random question, do you guys mostly listen to music via headphones, or do you usually crank up speakers?|
|thanks a lot for the input guys. maybe this info could help make a choice too: all my mp3 files are in
256kps. and heaphones or speakers, its 50/50|
|i got some sennheisers much cheaper than those and they were pretty good so i would expect those ones are|
