Why do I feel like i'm just reading youtube comments in here now?
You completely ignore the idea that some people prefer a slightly V-shaped signature. I don't. That doesn't exactly make the headphone bad. Funny how the people who claim the M50 is so bad due to it's signature go on to suggest the DT-770 Pro 80 or HFI-580.
The M50's mids of the white boxed version are not that badly recessed. The bass is much better controlled with a decent amp. Sounds like you had the old version like I had. Even the soundstage improves with a good computer DAC and amp.
OK, so you don't like it's signature? Big deal. Move on and find something else. Don't make a big deal out of it .I must go through a ton of headphones before I find something I like.
Maybe you're one of those people who thinks there must possibly be a headphone that's perfect for everyone. I sure wish this was true. What's good to you is not good to me.
People have a specific sound signature they like, different ears and listen to different genres. I wish there was a perfectly neutral headphone that everyone could like, but so far this hasn't happened. It doesn't help that nobody ever agrees on if a headphone is really neutral or not. I've yet to hear a perfectly flat headphone. Wasn't the K240, V6, Q701, K601 or HD-600. Maybe i'll hear one eventually. I was thinking maybe the DT-250 250. I hope it is..
I agree, but maybe you won't agree with me, but the m50 has a v shaped signature, which people crave, but other headphones, which have v shaped signatures, have better sound than m50s.
