Thread Starter 

Well ive narrowed it down to these two for my purchase of 150 and under,

What is each headphone good for?

Which one has a omre prominent bass?

Which genres would you match up with each headphone?

Thank you.


P.S. I listen to Rap, Hip hop, rock, dubstep, electronic, and others But MAINLY Rap and hip hop

Rap and mainly hip-hop, Ultrasone 780. The M50 are barely passable for any genre, much less rap and hip hop. Very neutral, 780 has a lot of bass but well controlled. The M50 is the headphone of hype around here.

Thanks do you own either one of them?

I've owned a pair of M50's, and I was satisfied with my purchase.  They were the first real pair of high-quality headphones I've owned (HiFiMan HE-400's on the way), so I can't compare them to anything other than cheap iBuds, etc... I can say they sound better than Beats in my opinion.  The bass isn't as prominent, obviously, but they are much more true to the recording.


I can't help with the comparison to the Ultrasone 780, but I can say that I was satisfied with the M50's, and they didn't slack in the bass department.

I owned the M50. Not so good. I have listened to the Ultrasone many times, excellent.

The bass on the 780's will tickle your ears, you can feel it. I'd go with the 580's which have more bass if that is what your looking for.

I'm an Ultrasone freak and listen to the genres you listed, so for me, I would buy 2 pairs.  lol...The 750s are great...For you, never having listened to an Ultrasone, don't know...Ultrasone motto- you either " love 'em or hate 'em"...If you love 'em, put on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride...

I just realized the 780 is the same price as 750, which one is better for what?
