Glad people are now seeing the hype (m50)
Price: Around $120
Comfort: Rather poor. It gets hot and sweaty after about 20-40 mins. (good all-rounder? haha)
Amping: Not needed, but it helps. Leckertons are good with them.
Bass: 7 (boomy at times)
Clarity: 7 (studio monitor)
Detail: 7.5 (studio monitor)
Bass is very well extended and boomy, but mid range is very recessed , and sounds bit artificial. Highs are sparkly and decently extended. Clarity and detail is superb for it's price (if its between $80 - 100)
That might be bit harsh. I mean, sure, they are overhyped. People compare them to $300 hps! But they do have great clarity and detail.
Indeed. They are solid, but there definitely some over hype on head-fi. Good all rounder.
