Hey guys, how does the UE6000 compare to M50?
I hear that the 6000's bass is like a Beat's bass. If so, I quit. Else...
I hear isolation isn't all that great, but still acceptable. Is that true? Is it good for hip-hop/rnb/soul?
And the AKG Tiestos seem like a direct competitor for these.
The bass of UE6000 would feel overbearing if you prefer the bass of the M50 which I consider light. Their mids are very good with above average detail. The highs of the UE6000 are slightly rolled off compared to the M50, so they have a different sound. I thought isolation on the UE6000 was very good and they are some of the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn with generously sized earpads. I would say try the UE6000 at the Apple store to see if they are for you. I would also recommend the M-100 for what you describe. I am waiting for the K267 Tiesto as well.
