They are pretty close I think.  I haven't had the M50's for awhile now so can't compare right now.  I just remember the M50's clamping force to be stronger and the ear cups were a little bigger so it sits completely around the ears so my guess is that the M50's might isolate a little better.

They sit around the ear but it touches the outer part slightly. The pads are soft and feel much better than the M 50's. MM's are more comfy.

They are actually kinda sleek for looking bulky. It's one of the cooler looking headphones I think. They are not as big as they look in pictures.

Overlooked because they are normally double the price. I think Mix Masters would be much more popular at the Aviator price ($150) or a little below.

The M50 isolated better for me.

+1, the design is definitely one of the best things about the Mix Master. For what is essentially a full-size headphone they don't look out of place when worn outside

Would these be a good value at $160 for a brand new pair?

Sure, much better than $300.

Considering Skullcandy is having a 50% off sale on their site right now with coupon code "redbull50" I pulled the trigger for a pair.

I've been using an HD590 for quite some time now and have not used closed cans for a long time. Excited to try these for $160.

I'm a bit disappointed that these supposedly don't isolate well since I was hoping to use it mainly for long international flights.

Would these be a worthy upgrade to the M-Audio Q40? The MMM is on sale for a pretty good price right now. It's the red version though, no black... too Beats-like?

post #44 of 65
I took a pair last summer for ~120 € ( around 160 bucks) and they were definitely woth it!
If you like Electronic music and Trance (or anything that needs some vitality in the lowest notes and a smooth treble) these are some really nice celebrity-endorsed cans... In fact, I think the MMM are among the best sounding headphones in this category.

The isolation is quite nice, however they are so flashy that it takes some guts to wear them in public (and mine have a lower-profile black finish). biggrin.gif

They really won't ever be mistaken for Beats. There's too much Skullcandy badging rolleyes.gif

 

As for the Q40, the MMM offers a more accurate sound if that's what you're seeking. Not an all-around upgrade, but certainly not worse than the Q40.
