    It's Cyber Monday. Looking to pick up either ATH M50X or Beyer DT770 Pro 80 ohms for silent practicing.

    I own a pair of DT880's (250ohms) for mixing but the semi-open don't get super loud and I can hear all the fret clank and outside noise, so I prefer closed.

    Mostly I just want to make sure they have great bass. Anybody have any experience with either?

    I like the audio technica m50x's too. Very good phones for the price that produces a very accurate representation of your sound.

    I bought the DT-770 Pro during Black Friday but it's nothing extraordinary to my ears, unlike all the positive reviews I had read a hundred times prior to buying it (I drive it with my Audient id14 audio interface, pretty loud, so it's not a "use a headphone amp" thing).

    Just ordered the M50. It’s going to be hard to match the comfort of my DT880s. We’ll see.

    M50's arrived. Good isolation. Good bass sound and my Apollo has no issues driving them hard.
    Definitely much more bass friendly than both my Senheisers HD280 Pros and my DT880's.

    Don't have a lot of knowledge about headphones admittedly, but for all it's worth my Sennheiser HD 380 Pro headphones in my opinion sounds amazing with nearly everything you feed into them, in the sense that they recreate the sound source pretty close to as it is all over the frequency spectrum to my ears.

    They damn better do too, cause while not being insanely expensive, they were in sort of the middle/upper price range of headphones that works well for studio use.

    Probably there are even better alternatives, and probably there would be cheaper ones as well that would work well for your application, but this is pretty much what I can contribute with to the topic.
