Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro vs Audio-Technica M50x

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
is this guide updated? Im looking into headphones to pair with my Sound Blaster Z sound card as well as take on-the-go when traveling. (yes, i know I should have went with a DAC, but I couldnt complain with it being on sale for $60, was a steal!) I was looking at the Beyerdynamic One Pro's and Audio-Technica M50x

saw few YouTube reviews like this, but would like the OCN opinion, since I cant seem to find any.
preferences go as this:
-Action Movies
-Music with varied tones, lot of bass at times
-gaming, etc.

And on a side note, is there any 3rd party audio control modules that I could pair with the sound card that can sit on the desk? Was even thinking of using optical to optical with the AudioEngine D1, but then thought... wouldnt that be redundant or not even turn on without the USB? I dunno... Here's the back ports of the sound card:

With the guide, I think that a number of the recommendations still stand, but I've heard whispers of a new guide being written up at some point.

As for the Audio Technica ATH-M50's, I have a pair of the original ones (I'll eventually upgrade to the M50X's due to the swappable cable as well as comfier ear pads) and they're my current go to cans when I feel like rattling my brain with bass.
