I may have made a mistake and I need your help hehe. I bought a pair of M50xBB this Christmas because I saw them on sale for 100 euro. I didn’t know much about them at the time so I looked a bit of information and they seemed good, so I bought them. I love how they look, this special edition color is gorgeous. However I don’t quite love the sound, it’s not what I was expecting. I have recently looked information about them, specially with channels like Zeos’, and I agree with some of the points. I don’t think they sound bad (maybe cause I’ve never heard to true quality, the best thing I owned were the Superlux HD668B). They have good detail and I enjoy the low end but it’s true that the highs can be harsh and they have nearly no soundstage. I still don’t know how the imaging is but it doesn’t quite convince me, I don’t think I can use this with competitive games.
So yeah, I’m thinking of returning them unless there is a way to improve their imaging.
I need closed back headphones that I can comfortably use and carry on flights, buses or in noisy environments. I would use them for media consumption (movies, music…) but I also want to be able to use them for competitive games. I want to be able to precisely locate where footsteps and sounds are coming from.
I looked up some alternatives thanks to forums and videos:
Audio Technica M40x
Cooler Master MH752
Takstar pro 82
They are listed from more expensive to less expensive. I can also get the Superlux HD669, but idk if they are good for competitive gaming.
I need your help to decide. I am mostly between the MH752 and the Takstar, though I like the looks of the M40x. I can get the Takstar as low as 60 euro in Amazon (though the seller is like 3rd party, “ammoon”). I only have a laptop for now so I would like them to work good enough without the need of DAC or AMP for now.
Feel free to make other recommendations. I hope this thread will be alble to help anyone looking for the same as me.
