Audio Technica ATH-M50 Limited Edition vs. standard M50 Video and my impressions on the M50.

Just got this up on YouTube.  Hope you guys like my review of the M50 and this comparison to the Limited version.

Did you notice any difference in the sonic performance of the Limited Edition versus the standard?

As far as I know the "s" in the name (M50s) stands for straight. That means that there may be a coiled cable version of these. I enjoyed the Video alot, thank you!

I have not had a chance to listen to it yet. I just unboxed it to show everyone. I will break it in and then compare. Thanks for the support. smily_headphones1.gif

  Very nice unboxing. I'm surprised that the shiny Audio Technica logo on the earcup is actually made out of metal on the M50LE. I wish that the headphones could be all metal instead of plastic, though. That would be pretty great. But alas. It's so beautiful!

  The change in headband between both M50s is also very interesting. That would suggest why some people complain about the M50 having extreme clamping force and others do not! And for some reason, the ear pads on both of your M50s are much softer than on mine. I guess it's time for me to replace them.

-Also, the doggy barking in the background sounds very excited about the limited edition M50 tongue.gif!

Hahaha... My dog wanted to be in the video, but I told her no so she was mad when I locked her out of the room. smily_headphones1.gif

You know, it's amazing that I have had the LE for three weeks now and not realize that the logo part is metal.

 

And you are right. It's metal!

Is your headband like mine? Does it pinch too much?

break-in is a must with these cans.  Sounds much better after 48 hours.

 

I have this coming this week.  Will do a comparison so stay tuned.

Mine has stayed on my head for far too long, and now I barely notice that they are on my head. I think they stretch out eventually.

 

I do recall not being able to wear them for more than 1 hour when I first got them out of the box, but now I have no problem pumping music through them for hours on end (usually 2+).

 

And yeah, I would recommend burning in as well. My pair after one month still seems to be breaking in.

What camera are you using? It seems pretty HQ.

 

And when you said "This part is all metal" do you mean the whole can part or just that raised little emblem part?

The can is made of plastic on my pair, but the logo/emblem is metal.

I use a Panasonic LX5 camera. It's not that fancy at $339. I use two lights. One with normal bulb and the other with Daylight bulb. It gives a good color in the videos when used together.

Enjoyed the review but would have loved to hear some comment on sound quality, particularly if any differences with the regular ATH-M50.
