Good info in here. I just picked up the coiled manufactured refurbished for $75 through slickdeals. Figured for this price I can't complain much, can't wait to try them out!

My friend got the same deal. He is pretty happy with them. Enjoy.

Oh man, I scored another busted M50, repiared it, then added HM5 pads.  Dang, I should have done this sooner, I was always pretty unsatisfied with M50's bass and treble, then the HM5 earpads fixes them..  The 10kHz peak is not at all as bad anymore and the bass is clearer and better controlled if a little reduced.  Dynamat on the outside of the primary chamber tightens and cleans up the bass a bit more.  But really, the difference that the HM5 pads bring really blows me away, now I love the headphone.  The soundstage is also deeper and bigger with the HM5 pads.

The midrange remains as excellent as before, if a pinch warmer.

Edit: I overlooked in my excitement there that the HM5 pads kill the bass if the pads don't seal perfectly, which takes a couple of minutes of sitting on my head.  Derp.

I love my M50x's.

 

 They are very comfortable, 4hrs every day and I forget they're on my head. Sound is warm, bass is very tight (just how I like it)  Mids are subtle Highs are clear and bright.

Sound comes from an Asus Xonar Essence PCI

I had a set of Sennheiser PC350 SE's before the M50's, thew had a better sound stage and were definitely cleaner all around.

 

I Highly Recommend The ATH-M50's.

I'm not an audiophile, but I know what sounds good in my ear. :)
