Need help choosing Audio Technica Headphone

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone, for 5 years i've been using my IDR 300K (around $20) Sades gaming headphone for games and listening to music in my PC, it has served me quite well but i think it's time to upgrade because the ear cups are getting really uncomfortable in my ears. I have 2 choice right now, Audio Technica SR30BT or the ATH M40X, so far i'm leaning towards the bluetooth side because of it's portability and hassle free aspect, but i'm afraid that it won't sound as good as the M40X, furthermore the M40X doesn't have any mic which makes the need to buy a new mic for gaming, which one should i pick? Or is there any better alternatives?

 

Budget: Around 1 million rupiah ($70ish) give or take

 

Source/Amp - PC and phone, possibly my turntable too

 

How the gear will be used - This will stay in my PC desk most of the times but maybe i'll took it out once in a while

 

Preferred tonal balance - Honestly, as long as they sound great, and can make a difference when i use the PC/phone equalizer, it's fine

 

Preferred music genre(s) - To be honest, i listen to almost every genre of music lol, but as of now, rocks like Radiohead, Beatles and Greta Van Fleet, city pops like Kirinji (listen to this one it's so good), Mariya Takeuchi and Mai Yamane, are now on top of my list

 

Past gear experience - $20 gaming headphone, and default Samsung headset

 

What aspect of your current listening experience would you like to improve? - Mostly comfort and durability

 

Thanks in advance guys.

PS: posted this on reddit but still no progress, can't be bothered to retype so i just copy and paste it.

Of those two the M40X is a much better pair of headphones.

After seeing many reviews, i think so too. But should i sacrifice wireless and mic (also a bit expensive too) for M40X? I'm still conflicted

It's good to see SADES getting some love. 
From a value perspective they're damn hard to beat.

It's true, even the mic and sound quality is surprisingly decent for the price.

That's up to your needs the trade off is sound quality over functionality if you run m40x. So if you prioritize what you hear over what you can do with it get the m40x
