I have long been a lurker here in the forums. Two weeks ago, after reading through miles of posts, I have decided to go ahead any an ATH M50. This is my first foray into better quality HPs, but I have always loved music.
I just wanted to ask help from you experts - the first time I listened to the M50 - I really loved the clarity. It is true that you get to discover sounds that were masked by lower quality HPs. However, some bass sounds seemed broken or scattered - I cannot seem to pin it down, but dubstep drops sounded screechy but daft punk sounds terrific, expect when handling heavy bass. All the rest of the sounds are wonderful. However, a part of me feels that I received a lemon just because majority of feedback about the M50 points to good/strong bass. After about 20 hours of use, it has not changed.
I just want to know how to tell if this is really how the M50 handles these types of sounds. Can you point me to a material online where I can benchmark the sounds as I am supposed to hear it, or tell me what other steps I can take? Please help me, this has been consuming me since I bought the headphone. I am terribly in love with my M50, I just want to put this nagging feeling to rest that I may have gotten funky unit.
Thanks and more power to everyone.
