Well there is a reason why the M50s are so popular. The mainstay of the audiophile community and a very highly ranked can. Are these better than them.?.It is just a matter of opinion and preference but what these will do is provide a nice addition to your favorite.. I do have a feeling however that you might end up liking these a bit more than your M50s. For $30 everyone should have one.
PCHU on board.! Damn guys..That is like 6 to 7 deadfiers a day and growing. You guys are keeping me busy. Lol!! Enjoy your new cans.. You are gonna love the bass on these.
To tell you the truth, I LOVE the Pannies compared to the M50s.
A couple of years ago a friend of mine and I bought our first "more-than-a-hundred-dollar" cans
and I got the Shure 440s while he got the M50s.
I have to say, I didn't like the M50s that much due to the slightly veiled mids.
Bass had definitely more presence but other than that I prefered the Shure sound signature.
We both tried them after hundreds of hours of "burn" (just in case you ask...) we reached the same conclusion.
I recently tried them again (M50s) to test/compare to the Monoprice cheapo phones.
I definitely prefered the M50s a bit over the Monoprice DJ phones but not by a lot.
I thought the Monoprice/Kickers performed admirably for just being $22 but it wasn't as
These Pannies I believe are better (to my ears at least) than both the M50s and Monoprice but
what surprised me is the value.! Note that I also prefer the pannies to my Shure 440s which I love
to death! ;-)
Anyway, point is, I agree with you Dsnuts, EVERYONE that loves bass but wants to
be able to listen to every genre (even if they DONT excel on every one) SHOULD try these!
P.S. My third set is on its way...
