Since i own the Srh 840 and the M50..I was giving my computer a fresh install and then the thought struck me to change the pads...I wasn´t even looking at head-fi when i got the idéa. Armed with the 840 pads i tore of the stock m50 pads and installed the 840pads.
Now a listen..Well hey there! More comfort...And more clarity..Lack of bass? Well maby just a tad..but the bass is overall better..I like this!
Then again, since i bought the m50s for their some what bassy sound..And since i allready have the SRH-840 which is to me a very clear and upper focused can. This is like blending the two cans together ( which you basicly do with the pads )
So maby for a first time buyer..Who wants bass, comfort and clear..Well just say a good All-round can..This combo might be THE one. Its something in between the Srh 840 and the M50..I like it, ALOT!
