I currently need a headphone for max 150$. I can go for just a tiny bit higher depending on the suggestion. I will mainly use it for music and sometimes gaming and calls. I did some research myself and found, of course, the Audio Technical M series. I thought about buying the M50X, but itherebare many negative reviews on its sound quality. The white version is currently 120$, so I am really debating if you should buy these. Then I came across the M40X, which was 50$, and reviews says that it was 90% of the M50X with more natural sound quality. So I was just debating on which one I should buy. But, the problem is that a lot of reviews says that they were uncomfortable out of the box, and should replace the air cushions immediately after purchase. Then, I read this articlehttps://medium.com/@Xander51/headphone-showdown-audio-technica-m50x-vs-pioneer-dj-hrm-5-c3ac4b21af9a, introducing me the Pioneer hrm-5 for the first time. The writer of this article seems to like the pioneer better in every way. I thought that was really interesting, because the Hrm-5 is currently only 99$. So I turned my head into that direction.
In summary, I prefer white headphones, so the M50X has an advantage on color. The M40X has superior sound quality over the M50X imo, and the Pioneer HRM-5, will, there isn't really much reviews on it so does someone has this headphone or similar?if yes, can you perhaps explain your experience with it and compare it to the Audip technica M40X/M50X ???
Well, if you made it through, I am really impressed, please leave your suggestion of the headphone that I should buy, or even suggest another pair of headphones. I am welcome to suggestions and opinions.
