Yes, the M-50 is good for hiphop and rap. If you just want bass, Sony XB500. If you want a very nice entry level set of cans, Monoprice 8323. If you want to hear everything, but not have booming bass, Audio Technica AD700. Hope this short list helps!

Some alternatives:

 

Phillips Uptown 

 

Ultasone 750 Pro, 580, 780 ...this will handle bass that you may need...

 

V-Moda M-80

 

I dunno whether you want opened cans....but if u are moving around...closed preferred...

Are the ultrasones better?

If I were you go to your local best buy and demo the uptowns. They are crazy comfortable! Sound great to boot.

+1 to the uptowns... The music seal technology on the ear pads is an added bonus. They have exceptional isolation, but my only gripe would be the flimsy looking/feeling cable and the remote. Otherwise, these seem like a great alternative to the ATHm50

The m50s are 50 dollars cheaper but how os the bass on them ?
post #10 of 26

I could not say I have not heard the m50s, but they bass is very good on them everything is good on the mids are a little forwards but not that much. If you can get the money get the uptowns.

All the cans that I listed are interesting in their own way...i really hope you find a store to demo them and also what has been mentioned by others. Finally let your ears be the judge.

Keep some flacs that you listen to regularly and demo the max out of the store :)

Wish you the very best...

can anybody give me a comparision between the ath m50s and the ultrasone hfi 580?

post #15 of 26

i have both and this is my decision. The 580's imo are the better phone, better tighter bass, slightly better mids and definitly much better lows. The M50 is better comfort wise. The ultrasones;s highs are quite sharp before burjn in. After about 50 hours they will tone down. So its comfort over sound quality your choise. The ultrasones arent terribly unconfortable but compared to the m50's. the m50's are more confortable, soundstage is better on 580's also. Over all definitly 580's. For sure you wont be dissapointed, they were $240 at one point ; ) now $120
