What kind of music do you like? If you like anything other than crap, then chances are you’re out of luck with Beats. The $300 pairs of headphones sound terrible, and there’s plenty of headphones out there that sound better than Beats, and yet cost less.
Click for a review of the Audio Technica ATH-M50 Review.
My favorite pair of headphones are a toss up between the aforementioned M50’s and the Sennheiser HD598‘s. I’m a fan of classical music, so the open-backed 598’s are a little more appealing to me. Although I can’t take the 598’s outside (the sound bleeds out freely!).
They are both incredibly detailed in their sound reproduction. The bass is definitely much more pronounced with the M50’s. The HD598’s bass is actually very tight…but it sounds flat in comparison. The open-backed design is again the reason why.
Have you tried either? Let me know!
