Hey guys, just asking how big or small is the soundstage on these cans compared to momentum akg k545 etc. What exactly I'd the sound signature some say it's flat others more bassy and warm. Any info would be much appreciated thanks.
post #514 of 535
those who say its sound signature is flat need an ear checkup. the soundstage is only half decent, and isnt it kind of unfair of u, comparing the M50x to cans twice the price? The M50x is good enough for the price as it is

is it bassy in a good way? Yes. warm? Not really, especially talking about the mids

I've had mine for several months and I think they are a great value.  I purchased them for $169 with an included FiOO E06 amp.  You can now source them in the States for $129...wow.  That's a lot of can for the money IMO.

 

The k545's can be had for $199 on amazon so I don't think the comparison is unfair.  Some people might be less defensive...

 

I can't speak to the 545, but I would not call the M50x flat...at all.  I think the highs are there without being overwhelming and it's a bit on the warm side with solid bass but please note that I'm listening mostly through my Woo WA7 using both the DAC and amp in the Woo (a tube amp that sounds like a cross between a solid state and a tube...not as warm as a full blown tube amp).  They are VERY easily driven and sound pretty darn good straight out of my Mac Air (2012 or 2013 model...can't recall) and my iPhone 5s.  

 

I also have the Bang & Olufsen E6's and at first I thought they were the better can...a bit brighter, I thought better and more forward mid's but less bottom end.  But after coming back to the M50x's, I'm surprised how good they really are.  Basically a really fun, non-fatiguing and comfortable can that's easy to drive and forgiving.  Also, they get as close as anyone could expect to a high end can given the price point.  That's my opinion anyhoo...

Where can I get it for $129??
post #518 of 535

Anyone wondering if they should get regular M50s over the M50x should definitely consider the M50x. The M50 feels so CHEAP in direct comparison.

buysonic had them at $121.99, but out of stock now. I would just follow them for a few months, I'm sure they will pop back up. https://www.buysonic.com/sales-catalog/

 

flash sale site, so only 7 day return window for defective products. if you are positive that you want to keep them, a great site to get them from.

Another quick question how is the soundstage for these cans. I'm reading and hearing they are just adequate. Thanks.
post #522 of 535

Not very wide but well defined and seperated, IMO better than Momentum, I hear it as veiled, the stage is no good either.

 

K545 is rather nice, but it requires some juice. But that one im only judging from store demo using my phone.
