The time has come, after 6-7 years of service my Audio Technica ATH-M50 is getting annoying to wear over longer periods of time.
(I will get replacement ear-pads (which is currently the main annoyance and a good excuse to look for an upgrade) and might mod a detachable cable onto it as the current cable is just hard and the 3.5mm jack is kinda broken)
So I am on a quest for an upgrade to use at home while the ATH-M50 will continue to see use on the go, budget is no issue (within certain boundaries, I’m not paying 1000$ for a pair of headphones).
The music in use is mostly Jazz/Metal(+games), so as laughable a task as it might seem, something where you can decipher the words in “Extreme Metal” is a must
I have no idea where to start looking or what resources online are good, Any tips on headphones/trustworthy reviewers would be appreciated.
A thing i forgot to ask about was AMP/DAC/Sound-Card/whatever it is called. Not sure what the price bracket or what a decent one would be.
