Appreciation of the ATH-M50's

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So I went to the mall today and I heard many headphones comparing them to the m50 including:

Beats solos- only bass everything else crap

Beats Studios - bass way too loose, just shakey bass not tight at all the mids are pretty crappy and highs can show some not so shy sibilance

Bower and Wilkins p5 - almost the same sound signature as the m50's and it was rather comfy and nice I liked it a lot.

Klipsch image 1 - great but the bass was too loose 

V-moda crossfades - good but were not fun sounding and the mids were not so clear and punctual 

Skull candy aviators - bad isolation, but I have heard them before in a quiet environment and the treble was nice clear and very fun and exciting, but very weak bass but still tight bass if you could hear it ^^

Able planet True fidelity - surprisingly sounded great I'm actually considering returning my m50's for these because of the value and sound cancelation, but still the bass was rather loose. Still, it sounded great and was very portable.  

 

Seeing only the p5 sounded better in total and was 200 dollars more, it really makes the m50's look good. Now in specific the aviators sound better treble and mid-wise. The able planets sounded nice with the noise cancelation and in general sounded great.

Hey guys, I just experienced the M50 sound from a friend of mine, and they're amazing. I'm looking to buy those , but since I live in Canada (insanely expensive place) I want to buy them online....but I want to make sure that I dont buy any fake/used/older version of it. So what I found is http://fastlanedvd.com/audio-technica-ath-m50-headphones.html where its pretty cheap but the problem is.....its TOO cheap.....original price is $135 instead of $199.....and free shipping!.....so is this a legit product they're selling?

You should check this site too:

They sell it for $159.99 but they also offer $40 direct rebate. I bought the limited edition one from them. No problem at all.
