post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

i am one more new member added to this great going forum

 

i have some question before buying M50

 

i live in INDIA so offically only ATH-M50 is avaliable no M50S

 

are there any disadvantages for M50 over M50s

 

I want to know the experience of the user who have used the coiled cable.

 

and finally can some tell me any other good buys comparable to m50 under 170$

 

i also had an offer to buy Music series one for 109$<2009> is it any good compared to M50

 

I strictly plan to use this cans to Music listing mostly via aportable drive<Sansa fuze+ or ipod > and once in while  from Desktop

 

Please feed me with ur valuable inputs

The ONLY difference between M50 and M50S is that M50 = part straight part coiled cable, and M50S = full long straight cable. There is no "better" choice, it's just personal preference if you like cabling with coil or not.

Some people like the 580's over the M50's. I find the 580's more detailed, with impactful bass. (not boomy)

Ok i always want to stick the original nature of Music as intended by the Composer  in that case which one is more preferable and how does 580 performance wrt to M50 in other segments

 

How is its sound stage compared to M50, how abts its mids and lows

Do they require any Amplifier?

 

 can any one  give me an idea abt "Music series one" intending to listen  purely Music not

going to use to watch movies or gaming

 

My main choice of listening:

 

Ar Rahman's Collection

Kathy perry

Black eyed Peas

Eminem

Alicia keys

Arminvanbuuren

Huge set of Trance Collection<Various Artists>

Also prefer listing to Hans jimmers Music
