The HD25 1 ii has a very narrow soundstage - I would imagine that the sps are worse in every department. M50 is a great can and I put it right next to an HD25. If you want something that's on-ear, cheaper and with a wider soundstage it sounds like you would like the K181DJ. They're smoother in treble and more balanced overall than the M50 plus they isolate more. Just as resolving to my ears.
