Hello I am buying a first pair of better headphones for around 150€. I am looking for a superior build quality, great sound, closed back design and if possible low in empadence since I don't have an amp. I listen to basically every genre of music. So far I have come across Sony MDR-1a ,Beyerdynamic dt 770 pro (both 80 and 250 ohm version), Audio technica Ath m40x and m50x and Sennheiser hd 569. Can someone please help me with my decision since I don't know much about audio. I am also open to any other sugestions if you know for any other pair that is also good but it is still in that price range.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply. I have heard from people that Sony's are really bass heavy. I would like to have some bass but not so much that it blurs mids and highs. So do you think I would be better if I had gone with something else then Sony's?

I haven't really read anything about the Sennheiser 569 I think that's a new one. The 80 ohm DT 770 Pro is well regarded and don't have the treble spike issues of most Beyer cans. The ATH - M40X is probably a good choice. The M50X isn't liked as much by most reviewers even though they're popular.

Here's a review of the MDR 1A. It's Zeos so it probably contains NSFW language.

They were on sale for $150 not long ago. I was tempted to get a pair.

Thank you for your answer. I have already watched Zeos review of the mdr1a and also listened to the sound demo but I think I will go with Beyerdynamic because they look like they are built like a tank which is important to me.
