Just ordered Audio Technica ATH-M50's - Page 2

post #16 of 42

Where did you find them for $70?  I just got mine from Zzounds and they do price adjustments for 30 days after

post #17 of 42

For those of you with burned in m50's and good results, did you just keep playing pink noise with some resting periods thrown in or what?

Thanks!  I just emailed them.  A $30 refund would be very nice

Just let em' burn in naturally while they are on your head.  It is interesting to see the progression from out of the box, to 2 hours, to 40 hours, etc.....  The fun part is after you've had them for a few months and start thinking, hmmmm, these are great but what happened to the 'wow these are incredible' feeling?  Than you put on your ipod earbuds and think christ, I listened to these at one point?

No problem! I think I remember reading somewhere on that site saying that if you already bought them and found a better price somewhere then you would have to call them but hopefully just emailing them will work!

Im noticing a light static sound when I plug these into my computer when there's nothing playing.  I don't hear it when I plug into my ipod, so is this just a problem with my computer speakers and not my headphones?

If it doesn't happen when you plug it into your iPod then I would assume it would be the speakers, but please don't mistake me as an expert. If you are plugging them straight into the speakers then maybe try plugging them straight into the computer itself if your computer has the necessary plug?

It has nothing to do with the speakers. If your PC is a laptop, maybe your headphone out is bad, that tends to happen on them.  Try to fix it, I had the same and it doesn't go away with time. The computer is more capable of driving the M50s than an iPod so the problem can't be there.

I agree, just burn them in with your music library, but don't turn it up too loud, just slightly above normal comfort volume.

post #26 of 42

If it's an onboard soundcard, it's not uncommon for the headphone jack to have light static and mechanical-electric sounds, as they aren't shielded from what goes on in the computer, and it's actually tied to the CPU, rather than being separate, like a sound card is. If you have a discrete sound card, that may be an issue with the sound card. The m50's are relatively sensitive, so they have a higher tendency to pick up stray signals floating around the computer and amplified by the sound card.

you seriously don't need to do all that. when people ask about burn-in i always tell'em to just enjoy the music and let your ears do the fine tuningsmily_headphones1.gif

I got the white box m50's and think the bass is just fine. Im suspicious just how accurate the statement of the blue box vs the white one is differant in bass terms. so what if they changed the packaging, i find it hard to imagine they went and changed the whole sound signature for no reason and no statement of having done so. If they had changed somthing i think they would have re released it as a newer m50 version and the marketing that comes with it. us audiophiles can be very imaginative at times

Well I'm all for non-noisy burn-in these days. I agree that you should just let them burn-in by using them for what they're for: listening to music.just use them whenever you can and while the sound signature changes, you will get used to it. But most people asking about burn-in just want to leave them on for the night and when they wake up the next day, an audio miracle has happened, and for that I think pink noise is best.

I've noticed the amount of people suggesting pink noise is the best. What exactly is it about pink noise that does the best job? I don't know tons about sound so I'm just curious.
