Thanks for the recommendations!!!
Ha yeah I did and I bumped this cause I think headphones as a Christmas gift is a good idea. Didn't think this thread would have any more comments after me but haha oh well.
And what better time to bump a Christmas thread than in June? Early Christmas presents FTW! :)
Ah, M50 love! Glad to see so many are happy with these headphones. I don't recall where I heard of them before ordering mine. Since Headroom.com does a 30 day trial, I figured it was worth a shot and ended up keeping them. When I'm not at work and have time to do some real listening, I throw these bad boys on and love every second of it!
And there's nothing wrong with Christmas in June/July.
shane55, being a musician myself, I'm sure your nephews will love these. Others claim they need varying amounts of time to burn-in, but I thought they sounded pretty good out of the box. I do think they sound better and better each time I put them on.
