I bought them because of this video, I trust Marques, but this was just a disappointment, I even had the placebo effect in which I was expecting them to be really really good sounding, but my Sennheiser CX-300II were overall better.
I am using them in Asus Xonar U7.
The only things i like about this product are:
-the build quality
-the highs and medium freq
For me the bass is almost truly disappointing and the comfort is really bad after more than 30 minutes of usage.
I have them since January 2014 and I've given them many chances, over and over hoping that maybe I will find out why everybody seems to like/love these headphones, but I couldn't be satisfied.
I'm aware of the fact that if I listen only to a specific set of headphones/speakers for a long time I will start to like the sound of that specific setup and if I change to another headphones, the sound will be so, but so different, maybe better, maybe worse.
99% of the time I listen to my Edifier S730, now you may think that I'm a bass addict and that's why I can't find bass in these ATH-M50's, but to be really honest with you guys I keep the bass on 0 (out of 6) and the woofer at 0 (out of 10) and it's just perfect, sometimes I go negative if I feel the song has too much bass.
But with these headphones, EVEN with the low freq in the equalizer at it's highest point I can't get a good bass. It feels such like a kick bass, a punch bass and I just hate that kind of bass, it gives me headaches.
I personally prefer a deep, longer bass, more soft.
For example, at the next song, between 00:17 and 0:33 I just HATE THAT BASS SO MUCH!
And the following bass, starting from 00:45, for me it's just sublime, but on the headphones it's simply NOT there!
Well, enough about myself.
The reason I made this topic is to find out if I'm using them wrong or maybe these headphones are not for me and my tastes and also do you have any recommendations for headphones that suit my sound preferences?
This is just my experience regarding these headphones, at the moment I actually hate them and I can't start to listen anything with them, it just ruins any song for me.
Thank you for your time,
