“Roland RH-A30 - The LooksHeadphones are basically the same as highly regarded ATH-M50, but there are some differences (I had a chance to have both in my hand and on my head as well). First thing you may have noticed on pictures, there are some shinny elements. The earcups are connected to headband with piece of steel and not with hinges like in ATH-M50. You can also notice metal grill (probably...” --koolas
“ Audio Purists steer clear of them, because they need to be EQ-ed to get the best out of them, because one thing you will immediately notice is the sheer lack of treble. This is great with harsh recordings but even than it just sounds unnatural to me, give me sibilance over a huge treble roll-off anytime.

“If the A50s gave you the option to customize the presets, I imagine that they would be great for FPS gaming.

The laid back, v-shaped signature is what I was looking for. The mids are slightly recessed,...” --IEMagnet01
“ The sound quality is a lot better than they make it seem, the marketing shows it being used with PSPs and phones, but they are capable of handling more than angry birds. I use these for PC gaming and music. The sound on these almost compare to my Sony MDR EX700LPs, but with a better soundstage and less bass extension. I actually prefer these to the A40s, they...” --jimmy895
