If you are looking for a quality sound let me share my thoughts having tested over ear closed back headphones Shure SRH440 vs Audio-Technica ATH M50x. Both models come with a wire.
With quite a low impedance of 44 and 38 Ohm the models Shure SRH440 vs Audio-Technica ATH M50x both have a great sound quality with mobile devices and MP3s. The range of frequency response is very wide with 15Hz-22KHz and 10Hz-28KHz. The sensitivity is represented by 105 vs 99 dB respectively.
The sound of Shure SRH440 is very bright on highs and mids but the lows lack a bit in sub-bass. Still, they will satisfy most listeners. The brightness of trebles may seem even sharp with some tracks.
I like the live reproduction of sound in Audio-Technica ATH-M50x. The music is engaging for casual listening, still it is detailed and clear for mixing. The sound is full at all ranges including crisp highs, distinct mids, and strong bass. The trebles are not fatiguing. Of course, the soundstage is not expected to be wide, but it is recouped by noise suppression by the closed cups.
For the type of over ear headphones they are quite light with 310 vs 285 g. Adjustable headband allows it to fit comfortably on the head. Large cups sit tightly and soft. They are unfoldable for the Shure SRH440 unlike for the more compact Audio-Technica ATH M50x.
Detachable cable allows to interchange it with an audio cable and makes it safer when tangled over something. Both headphones feel nicely on the head and I can wear them comfortably for hours.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is better headphones in this comparison. Check Audio-Technica ATH-M50x price
