The difference between ATH-M50 and ATH-M50S?

post #1 of 23

Hey!

As the title says: What is the difference between the ATH-M50 and ATH-M50S? Would it be worth the extra money for the ATH-M50S?

S = Straight Cable.

Sorry to ask, but what does that mean? Is it worth the money?

They should be the same price lmfao >.<

 

Its just the way the cable is.. Straight cable or Coiled. M50 is Coiled/M50S is Straight, The straight cable is 11Ft long, The coiled is about 4Ft but stretches to 9Ft.

 

Nothing else is different. Usually the straight coil would be used for people who want to use it with like their tv or whatever and let it be able to stretch far to their couch.. Coiled would be more outside usage.. I got coiled because I use it with my iPod, I just tuck the coil into my pocket and let the right amount out.

Comes in two versions. One has a coiled cable and one is straight (10 ft.). The S designates the straight cable version.

I have the straight, but sometimes wish I had the coiled as I mostly use it while up and about (and at 10 ft., it's a bit cumbersome)... it's all a matter of preference. Only you can make that decision.

Or if you want to use the M50 for portable and home use you could twist tie the strait cable and make it really short so you dont have to put any of the wire in youre pocket.

I use the coiled for home and portable. I was concerned, but am so glad I got the coiled. Its just more versatile imo.

another thread where the Search function could have given the answer immediately.

My guess is that headroom graph has the kind of variance you'd see from one headset to the next anyways.

Oh, I absolutely based my straight-cable purchase on the Blue line of the graph! MUCH better FR.

Is it really??  I noticed that and was wondering if that is accurate?  Why would the straight cable have better frequency response??  Makes no sense to me.

I'm glad I chose straight. I was having such a hard time deciding on whether I should get coiled or straight. lol. The straight cord is 2 dollars cheaper on B&H.
