Audio Technica ATH-M50
I have a bunch of headphones send to me from different people sitting around which I haven't gotten to yet. Hopefully I'll be able to entertain you guys. I don't know how acerbic I'm going to be this time around since I'm pretty tired and feel less cranky than usual.
They sound OK. Bass isn't overblown. Nice round bass. Decent detail. I don't think it extracts the lowest of low level information. Balance is not too bad. Very dynamic. Lacks the extreme treble - that last bit of air. The FR is not perfect. The regions from the midrange to the treble are not linear - no seriously sharp peaks, but FR is definitely uneven. Trying hard to hear some ringing. Maybe a little bit at 4kHz. Some hash at 9kHz? This is tough or either I'm fatigued. Wish there was more lower to middle midrange. Too much emphasis on upper midrange. I don't hate it, but I don't like it either. UPDATE: Changed my mind on this. Some emphasis in upper mids but OK. I'd have to give a slight nod to this headphone.
Measurements on the way...
