Recently I have been reading different people's on the M50s, and apparently, some say they're getting more overrated as their popularity picks up. I mean, I'm an M50 fanboy, and got about 3 of my friends rushing for them, but after knowing that some reviews glorify the cans WAY too much, I'm getting a little anxious. I really hate to lie to my friends.
So Head-Fiers, are they on the way to "Beatshood"?
Adorama (mainly a Camera place in NY) had a 24-hour sale on the M50x cans for $99 so I bought a pair. I had seen some of the reviews so I figured for $99, why not try them out. I have to say they do sound very very good considering the price. Are they the best sounding cans money can buy? No, of course not, but considering the under-$200 price, they are pretty darned good! I have a pair of Klipsch M40s which I really love, but they are just too tight and heavy and I can't wear them for long. These M50x sound every bit as good as my $300 Klipsch cans but are much lighter and more comfortable. If I had a friend who wanted great sounding headphones but didn't want to spend a fortune, I would definitely recommend these.
