    So I have upto £150ish to spend. I currently have the sound magic e10. I'm happy with them overall but I'm ideally looking for a significant improvement in soud quality, without losing the ruggedness & build quality of the e10

    The two I've read about and been recommended are:

    Soundmagic e80
    RHA MA750i

    I do listen to quite a bit of drum and bass, but my music taste is also quite eclectic so I wouldn't want bass to rule over everything else.

    If these two are the best two to consider that would leave some cash over for an amp. but I want to make a smart decision that will last so I'm open to ideas

    Any other considerations?

    Which would you pick out of these two?

    SoundMAGIC E80 sound quite different to the E10, they have a smoother overall sound, and are not as exciting or in your face.

    If you can still find them somewhere, the Dunu DN-1000 might suit your tastes, otherwise for £150 you won't be getting a significant upgrade to the E10 really.
