As per title, i'm not sure whether to spend more than a $120-160 on the m50 or around $50 for the XB500.
Tried eq-ing the XB500, but still a bit too bassy at certain parts of certain songs. Auditioned both and found the XB500 bass to be over slightly empowering some songs even though i set a "bass reducer" or "treble booster" eq using my ipod classic. I listen largely to trip hop, downtempo, chillout lounge genre
(if someone has the ipod classic, which setting do i choose to reduce bass + increase treble?)
the m50 gave me sharper and clearer sound on some parts. (are these called the midrange, i'm a newbie in this) XB500 on treble booster is great too, but i'm not sure if i should give the sharper details of the m50 a miss... or should i just order the XB500 and save $100 odd.
can someone convince me to choose either one?
