I would assume it wouldn't matter much, no budget headphone really scales.

Before the revision it was quite the killer budget can =/
I guess some of the hype spilled over but since the prices came back down almost to the levels of before the revision it's still not that bad of a budget headphone.

The M50 is a pretty good headphone for its price range. Sure, it is over hyped, but it's a very good can for introducing iBud users to a world of better audio. Its sound is non-fatiguing, it is rather comfortable, and does well for most genres of music.

 

I cannot remember the number of times people ask me if I have Bose or Beats headphones when I tell them I love cans. Those 2 are probably the most prominent "high-end" headphone manufacturers around.

"These are struggling."

 

I think I burst a capillary,

Bose aren't bad though and are probably comparable to the M50.

I gave my friend my Sony XB90EX some days ago to listen to them. after about a minute of grinning he took one bud out and quoted the film The Dictator: "Megan you were worth every penny..." I burst in laughter :D

Usual reaction is 'you're gadget man' or ' you have too much money'. Thing I never understood is that a lot of these people spend their cash on stuff that bewilders me, however I recognise and respect the fact that everyone has different priorities / tastes / hobbies. I love music and coming from a musical background, I can't imagine my life without decent sounds.

Busy day today...

 

in the Morning I was walking to my lectures listening to some Einaudi (Le Onde) on my HD25s and a girl walked past and i could hear the metal song she was playing on her ibuds. Reaction: WTF? 

 

Afternoon a guy asked me about my HD25s, when he heard the price he said how he'd never pay more than £10 for headphones and his sounded just as good. I proceeded to correct him by letting him listen to the intro to "Bat out of Hell" and well... I won that argument.

 

Then After fencing this evening I was talking about Regina Spektor to one of my fellow fencers and I let her listen to "All the rowboats" on the HD25s, she commented on how good it sounded. 

(A plus for me: she looked really good wearing the Cans) gs1000.gif

I implore you all to check your hearing. Calling the M50 not good? It's one thing to not like them due to popularity, etc, but to just outright ignore the fact that they are very detailed? This IS Head-fi, right?

 

I'm actually getting RID of my Grados over the M50 because the M50 is more detailed.

I'm one of those people who is considering public transit for life because I want to enjoy music while i'm on the go.

"I implore you all to check your hearing" <--- The point is??

 

 

they are very detailed? <---- Compare to SR60i which is half the price of M50?. Please do explain what this "detail" means??

this is really the reason i think the m50 is over-hyped, only the people who don't have a good point of reference for sound quality rave about it.

That's the main issue with this hobby, it's all subjective. My reference is the JH13 so the M50 is very undetailed to me. It's good for its price though.
