They are bass heavy though, so not the best for orchestra and sound tracks, and the bass bleeds into the soundstage somewhat for for gaming. Still, a good gamer will do well with any decent headphones biggrin.gif

Which headphones aren't bass heavy somthing good for country music to?

I don't listen to too much country, except some of the slower songs that play on the Lite Rock stations, so I'm not entirely sure. I would think the sonic sound it would be a like mix between Pop (vocals) and Orchestra (instruments) so the M50s should still playback that genre well. In fact, the M50 is a great all rounder for the Top 100 type music, which is why they are so popular. Even though I said not the best and that they are a bit bass heavy, that is in comparision to other headphones that cost more and/or are not suitable for mobile use. I think you should be okay for the ATH-M50, and if not, you could always return them and try another set of headphones but the ATH M50s are a solid choice.

Just use an extension cable
Any 3.5mm male to female cable will work. If you dont have a case on your phone, you'll be fine without it

the ath m50 s aren't really that bass heavy. They are actually fairly balanced.
If you want something more neutral:
Roland rh300
Yamaha mt220
Harmon kardon cl
Koss prodj100 with m50 pads

Guys, what's the difference between the ATH-IM50 and the ATH IM-70 please.

Also, I'd really appreciate if you could help with recommendations for my thread.

Also do you believe that burn in really works?

Yes, I do. Just not with all headphones.

Probably won't need an extension cable, and unless you've heard both, you're just shooting in the dark, and I assume you've searched around on the site for comparisons. Just pick whichever one you think you'll be happiest with from a year from now.
