I already own ATH-M30's and their frequency range is 20-20,000 Hz. Its been a while so im starting to look for new ones and i came across the sony ones. The MDR-V6's range is 5 Hz - 30 kHz. Is it really worth the upgrade?

You can't go by the frequency specs to say a headphone is better than another. Two pairs with the exact same specs can sound completely different.
Look up reviews for the product, see what other people thought of it, then you can decide for yourself smile.gif

Just so you know those numbers are literally meaningless.

Listen to the Sonys and see if you like them. Its that simple. While flat response is desireable in amps and dacs, speakers and headphones are the final step in delivering the sound to your ears. Even the flattest speakers arent flat. This whole "as the artist intended" thing is nonsense. Take your favorite bass music artist for example. if he/she mixed with as much bottom end grunt as they desired you to hear, it would be unplayable on modest equipment like earbuds or car speakers. Also without the actual visual cues of the artist in front of you the brain requires a little more stimulation for the music to be immersive so a little extra bass or dip in the midrange isnt undesireable.
