TSIG is a 'young audiophile'...
... but old audiophile loose the high perception (plus possibly other frequencies)

I sort of understand the Beats bias on this site but don't kid yourself...Uptowns do not sound better than Beats Pros. I understand Beats are not worth their price tag but come on...lol
You just have lightweight ears when it comes to bass. I don't how some head-fiers don't understand that some listeners are more sensitive to bass than others. You also said Fanny Wangs had "thundering bass" I sold mine the next day after I got them because of the poor quality in bass. Just respect bass connoisseurs and their point of expertise, especially if bass isn't your thing.
I have listened to both the Uptowns and the M50s and the guy has a point. And he is a reputable source. The Uptowns are comfier and they have better mids , but the are not practical for traveling as the M50s are. They have a flat EQ which makes them good with almost any genre of music unlike the m50s that have more bass (not overwhelming ) and really good highs but mids are their weak point.
Guys sorry to bother but i have the opportunity to make the following deal...
Atm m50's for 80 euros
Shure srh440's + Philips Citiscape Uptown for also 80 euros (both)
Wich one do you think is more worth it?
I already have a pair of v6's and cal!'s... but you guys know.... XD Headphone fever...
I mostly listen to rock (artic monkeys, bloc party, etc...) and progressive house and trance (a lot of stuff from anjunabeats and enhanced...)
So what do you guys think? Are the m50s worth the same price as the other 2 combined?
