anyways... if you're in need of some extra cash, I guess you could go for the v6 as an alternative. Although I'm not sure if you've already crossed it off the list. There are some comparisons here on head-fi between them :)
I know this is an old post but are you serious? The M50's really suck up against a proper simple mod on the 449. Do the two hole Bass mod ( not the one linked above) and add 439 Velours on the 449 and you got a beast of a low -entry level phone. With the mod-the bass is deeper, tighter with more layers ( M50 = king of one note bass), the mids and treble are fantastic. And the soundstage and image the 449 produce the M50 only wishes it could sound as good.
Don't get me wrong the M50 is a "Good" phone while the modded 449 is a "Great" phone.
HD 449 is the better allrounder
m50 is all hype people just like the detail(well studio monitor here!!!) , forward sound and bloated bass
Hi I see that there are a lot of people who know the HD449's
I actually live in Sydney and want cans preferably over ears but will settle with on ears if comfy.....
I have the following headphones available to me under AUD150
I'm gonna get the MDR-1R's in July need something on a temporary basis....
I'll also get a E17 or E12 in July can't decide!!!!!
I have also have a XBA-3 which I love but want something with a little more bass....
And when I say little I mean little.......
I am siding towards the HD449 or the UE 4000....
I listen to rock pop and acoustic music......
Thanks in advance.....
