So I bought now an ATH-M50X, very happy with it (thanks @TNT) and also sold all my shitty, over-expensive Beyerdynamics. So now I am looking for a second really good studio headphones in the range of 100-250 Euro. Any suggestions for me?
I am pretty lost now about what vendor and model I should choose. I only know what I do not like:
- Highpassed lows
- Compressed lows
- Beyerdynamics, and other German brands (too much “hightech” electronics fixing the sound)
- Lack of “airness” (due compression/limitation or so)
- Predetermined breaking points
Thanks for help.
PS: I discussed a bit on the topic with a friend, and we concluded that your ear and head size, so the pressure on your ears matter extremely for the sound. I found it funny that I mostly agree with the measurements on rtings.com while my friend trusts in innerfidelity headphone measurements. Maybe Innerfidelity is using another head dummy than rtings simply, and the head dummy of rtings matches more my head
