Should I spend the extra money to get the ath m50s le instead of the ath m50s

I heard that the limited edition model of the at m50s looks and sounds better (i can confirm the looks) but I was wondering if it was worth the extra money.

What are the prices for each where you are?

They are a bit better according to another user and considering how its only about $13 more then the normal M50 I don't see why you shouldn't get it.

Heya,

 

Not worth the money, at all.

 

Either model.

 

I would suggest a completely different headphone honestly. What are you looking for? What's your budget?

 

Very best,

I have the M50's and I wouldn't recommend them either for the price,if you could get them for less $100 I would say go ahead but in my opinion the $160 wasn't worth it

I am looking for headphones that are good without an amp, just drive by an iphone.
I mainly listen to top 50 pop and rap, so i want good bass.
My budget is $100-$200. Thanks for any help!

Look into:

 

AudioTechnica A900X

Ultrasone PRO 750

Ultrasone HFI 580

AKG K167

Sony XB700

M-Audio Q40

 

Very best,

I was wondering: are those headphones you mentioned noise isolating and over ear with little leakage?  I know I didn't mention that I wanted those features earlier, I was in a rush.  Anyways, thanks for the help!

The only difference between the M50S and the M50 is the more expensive one has a coiled cable. 

Amazon had the M50S for $110 just last week. Not quite worth the $160 as there are alternatives. But for $110 its pretty good

I think he is asking about the the regular and the special edition LE one.

Thanks for all the help! Any other suggestions for whether or not
I should buy the LEs instead of the regular ath m50s and why/why not?

Also, will the LEs stop being sold at the end of this year?
post #14 of 19

Well if you are dead set on the getting the m50s then I would suggest the LEs just for looks. They look very nice. I got them for the girlfriend.

Bump? I also set on the m50s at the moment, but answers in this thread have slightly changed my choice. What is a good alternative between 100-200 with decent bass but also good mids and highs like the OP asked?
