Basically the question is the title,
I’ve using the m40x for around 3 years now, a few months with the stock pads (very uncomfortable), then I changed to the Shure HPAEC840 pads (comfortable, bass was gone, detailed high end, they ended falling off the headphone because they were very loose ) and then to the Brainwavz angled pads (very comfortable but made the m40x very V shaped), the M40x will remain my street headphones and now I’m searching for an upgrade, a little bit more neutral headphones.
I have a ifi Zen DAC so the new one can be a little hard to drive
As I stated in the title, my limit is 500 bucks, hifiguide recommends me 3 different headphones in very different price ranges :
- T50rp for 150 (160 atm in Amazon)
- T60rp for 300 (300 atm in Amazon)
- NDH20 for 500 (500 atm in Amazon)
The only hard need is that it has detachable cables (looks like T60rp and NDH20 have it)
I suppose the T50rp are not a upgrade from the m40x more like a sidegrade?
Are the T60rp or the NDH20 worth it as an upgrade?
I don’t have the oportunity to test them in person, the only high end pair that I listened are the DT1990 and they are way too sparkly and the high end is very fatiguing for me.
I usually listen to rock, blues, jazz no edm or hip hop
I admit didn’t saw the zeos reviews of those headphones just yet, but I will in these days
