I would say they are quite different in their own way, depending on what your preference is. Both look good to me (appearance wise) M500 probably a more luxury feel (matches macbook pro), but if you are going to be moving around, it is some what loose on the head, but if you are just sitting down and not moving your head too much, it is very comfy. Whereas the clamping force of the DT1350 can be too much for some people, but I got used to mine and also it tends to loosen up the more you wear it, no probably going around with it.
Sonically, I would say DT1350 has a smaller soundstage but clarity is very good (my pair), it performs well in most freq ranges, but there are a dip in upper mid, which can make it a bit unnatural for some recordings.
I found M500 can sound a bit muddy sometimes, especially in a fast song and a lot of instrument.
Build wise, the DT1350 just feels more solid to me, although the M500 is made of aluminium but it gets tiny dents on the edges quite easily.
