Just bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50's, Worth it? - Page 2

ah. Thanks for that, i guess i wont buy an E3.  I was however thinking the E11 (the desktop one) and maybe getting an E6 as something portable. All FiiO's amps are dirt cheap so i could get a few.

Oh and i dont plan on just having the ATH-M50's, im thinking of getting a pair of decent headphones (around the 300 dollar mark) later on this year and would definetly need an amp for them. (I was thinking something along the likes of the K702, HD600 or the HE400) Also the K240 MKII's that i have at the moment work fine on my PC which has a good sound card, but plug them into my Sansa Clip + and the sound is good, but no where near as clear, crisp or loud as on my pc. (At the volume level of 6, it sounds like the volume level of the Soundmagic PL30's at volume level -12. ((Rockboxx has a max limit on the sound of 6, and that on the PL30's is eardrum blastingly loud)) 

 

And yeah.

EDIT- I meant the E9, not the E11.

Dude I'm from Australia to, and you can get them $110 easy WITH FREE SHIPPING.

 

anyway, the M50s are good. and i bet you can sell them for more then you bought them on Gumtree.com.au because they're pretty high in demand and theres like none on gumtree.

The e17 is very nice unit, clean small and adjustable. 

I like the M50 for all round dance, hip hop and house. Just test out the amps in your price range and as i always say " if you cant hear the difference don't spend the money" 

 

happy listening.

Well the M50's just arrived, the delivery guy just dropped em off.

 

First Impressions

 

Build Quality is super solid

Ear cups are really nice and soft, almost like the Beats earcups. (really the only good thing about the beats was the ear cups that were incredibly soft)

Sound quality is great! Im just listening to William Barbers Adagio For Strings recorded in a FLAC file and it sounds about as good as the K240's. Havent tried with any other music however.

Actually quiet small, i can fit them around my neck easy!

Also really comftorble, a bit tight, but i feel thatll go away after a few days.

 

May do a review in the future.
