    I'm looking forward to buy headphones soon but I need a piece of advice with this issue.
    Firstly, I need some closed ones because I'm going to use them a lot in the city (public transport and any others sources of noise).
    Secondly, I got only about 100 euro for them.
    Lastly, I want them to be best for listening to music. I don't care how they work with gaming since I don't really play much.
    My taste in music is pretty varied but I would like to focus on higher sounds (dunno if explained it correctly), I'm not really a 'bass head' person.

    I've done some researches already and found ATH M50s for about 70 euro, are they worth the money or can i get something better in this price range.

    Thx for helping

    If you can get real ATH M50 for that price then go for it - they should be 130 Euros at least. I would be very suspect about that price as it is less than a legitimate shop would pay for them at trade.

    Have a look at these too.

    Shure SRH440 Professional Closed-Back Headphones (SRH 440)
    £89.95 - These are really nice and have quite a flat balanced sound

    Ultrasone HFI-450 Closed-Back Foldable Headphones (HFI 450)
    £79.96 - I really like these, they have the impressive Ultrasone soundstage and natural feel

    Denon AH-D1100 Closed Back Stereo Headphones (AHD1100)
    £99.95 - These are much warmer but also have plenty of detail
