I'm looking for good, but not expensive heaphones for my studio. I need natural sounding bass. My budget is +/- 50-60 dollars. I found these

which one will be better? Or maybe something different?

I love my pair of AT M50x, but they are a bit more expensive than the M20x. I have no experience with the AKG pair, but I think it's safe to say that you pay for what you get. Maybe you could score a pair that are used?

I've also heard a lot of great things about Beyerdynamic's line of headphones. These also are going to be a bit more expensive. If I were you, I'd save up a little longer and try to get something a little more pro.

I suggest you go to a respectable shop with a good selection to try and you pick whatever you like. Headphones are a personal choice. Make sure you take a source with you that you trust (music player, your digital multitrack recorder, etc.) and that you test for the conditions you'll be using your headphone under. Only then I'd go for a second hand one, but that may be a gamble... I'd just go and buy what I like. Very Happy
