In your opinion.....I just got off two flights, coast to coast........Two major airports and lots of Dr. whatever his name is cans..No one even looked my way. The Hammo performed very well. Not a problem for me as the sound speaks for itself. As for a comparison with ATH M50....The Noontech Hammo for the price IMHO was a flater sound and a whole lot cheaper.. I have to admit I was very surprised when I first heard the Hammo. I own both and yes the construction on the Noontech is not as sturdy as the m50. However, I take care of my cans and I see no problem.
