some like them... Take @cb3723 for example. He loves his Mixr's. Go look at his headphone inventory. He has the hd800, LCD-X, K812, etc. Yet still makes time for his mixr's. Not for everyone, but some like them.

Looking back at my point it does seem a bit emotionally driven... To explain, I personally prefer a cleaner headphone with a revealing and intimate sound signature. However seeing at what the genres that will be listened to; the Mixrs are an OK shout. I just feel that comparing the two, the M50s outclass the mixrs in most areas, and technically presents music much better. However the mixrs make up some ground up utilising a more carefree, shameless and fun sound sig.

 

I guess its down to preference, if I had to choose I would definitely not pick the Mixrs, for the whole package there are plenty of other brands (m50s included) that give more bang for the buck

welcome to head-fi btw! I personally, as I said don't like the m50's. Haven't heard the mixr's... I just use akg k240's with an e11.

You have dubstep in your name so I KNOW you have no knowledge of real music child

To people like him, louder = better, more bass = better. They don't really know what good audio is because they have never heard it.
When you listen to low quality mp3s on a high quality headphone it's going to sound pretty bad. But when you listen to low quality mp3s on low quality headphones it wont sound as bad because you won't be able to hear how much it sucks.
I'm not saying either is better btw. It's just my experience with most people who blindly love skull candy/beats
