Hi all, low(ish) end audiophile here. I'm looked for headphones with a sound signature very similar to sennheisers (I've owned three different models and loved them to death) My current in-ears are on their last legs now and I don't have a replacement. I would really prefer over-ears but really durable and good sounding in-ears are fine too. Durable being the key word because I tend to fell asleep with them in and I'm astounded my current ones have survived for.. over 1 and a half years now. A little beside the point there, but yeah, in ears if they are great sounding and super durable for this price point.
Over ears are preferable though. I've been avidly waiting for the momentum over ears (first gen) to get to ~$175 which I've seen them at once before, which is my on my upper limit I'm willing to pay. But their price is over $350 still ( I'm Canadian) which is absolute bull .. american amazon has em for $170 new ($220 cad).
But who knows when the Canadian version will get a drastic price cut and who knows when my in-ears will ultimately meet their end.
Also, I heard from a fellow sennheiser user that the ATH-m50s are really overhyped and don't sound that great compared to his 558s (in all frequency ranges not just the slightly boosted sennheiser bass).
