But there is one thing from reaching the M500 just yet : the fit, that is if you have a small head like me. Honestly, that thing is just like a soap bar at a prison, the moment you tilt a bit of your head it almost fell off, and this is just sitting down. I can't imagine walking around with these and definitely not banging my head with my rock collection with these.... 

 

Is there any kind souls to help the fit situation <img data-cke-saved-src=

 

Speaking from personal experience? wink.gif

 

I learnt it watching wentworth miller picks up his soap....

 

seriously though, the sound is so good,, i mean sooooooo good, i dont mind walking tad slower for these cans, so as not to let it fall off....

I find that the highs are usually harsh on the M500s when the highs are harsh on the recording.

I'm eagerly waiting for Tyll to measure the M500s, very curious about how they will look on paper.

I know from talking to Tyll when we worked on the Headphone Measurements article on innerfidelity.com he mentioned that measuring on-ears was very tricky. I've done some less than "scientific" FR sweeps at home and the M500s are pretty flat (and the flattest of the bunch that I've reviewed).

I am buying one. i don't mind the looks anymore biggrin.gif At first i was a little afraid that these might be another epic fail from a speaker company that just wants to get into making headphones like the matin logan and the b&ws... It seems they are actually made in-house and are tuned by kef people. That in itself combined with the good things everyone is saying about them is making me order one for sure!

By the way, can the m500 play loud before distorting? The reason I ask is that it says in the company specs that they can only handle 30mW max

That doesn't mean they can't play loud at all without distorting...just that you don't need a lot of juice to get them to play loud. And yes, you can play them very loud with not much distortion...but then again I never play any of my headphones loud....gotta protect them ears.

Well I don't listen loud all the time but there are those urges once in a while hehehe

Genres[edit]

Although electronic dance music is treated as a genre itself, music journalists and fans alike also further delineate an ever-evolving plethora of genres—named styles and sub-styles—under the EDM umbrella. The broadest categories include house (including its electro house variation), technotrance,hardstyleUK Garage and dubstep, among others.
