HELP! Are these two modded M50s the same?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was looking to buy a modded M50 from soundprofessionals.com, but they told me (only earlier today) they were out of black modded M50s (at least on their website). So I checked Amazon and I found this:

http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Closed-Back-Headphones-Removable-Detachable/dp/B00I8ZLCJC/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1393478687&sr=1-4

Is this the same as the modded M50 that soundprofessionals.com sells on their website (linked below)?

Also, I noticed that the the 3.5mm jack is threaded. Will that affect compatibility with the V-MODA's BoomPro mic or with any other 3.5mm inputs/connectors? Or is it threaded just to allow for a locking plug?

To answer the first question, no they are not the same. The one on Amazon comes from AT, and is the updated model of the original M50 which has a detachable cable now called the M50.

The second one is a modded version of the M50 by a person, rather than directly being manufactured with a detachable cable like the one from Amazon. This is not an M50 (but they are pretty much the same). The cable shouldn't make too much of a difference. I think that the cables are the same other than the covering.
