    Are we going to see the rebirth of M-Audio Q40 here on head-fi? They used to be a very popular alternative to the M50 for people who wanted bassy headphones for a while, but it seems like it died out. Now I'm seeing people recommending them again.. Any, good review. Thanks. Might check these out and see if I like them better than the M50. I hold the M50 pretty high - in the D2000:ish kind of league. Don't ask why though, they just hit a very soft spot for me.

    Interesting review. And you wear glasses like me. Are they comfortable with glasses on.

    Great great review! Was about to buy AT ATH-M50's then came across your review and now I have more decisions to make. How would you compare the M50's to these? Within this same $150 - $200 range what others would you throw into the mix. Your preference on sound falls in line with mine so thus my question.

    Hey MalVeauX, how would you compare the m audio q40's to the vmoda crossfade lp2? Which one did you prefer?

    What monitor is that? The one you used to stretch out the headphones.

    Thanks for the review, didn't like DT770's way too bright treble.. This seems to be worthy upgrade for my XB500

    Excellent review. I can appreciate your comparisons vs. the other listed headphones in the review. Additionally, the steps taken to further improve the comfort via the Beyerdynamic was wonderful, too.

    How did you change the headphones pads? I'm afraid of breaking them..

    I just ordered these after reading your review, I always respect you opinions as we have a very similar sound preference, and for £60 delivered I can't really go wrong.

    Well I'm in. This is the second pair of headphones I've purchased because of you Malveaux (love the 500s). I've been missing my Pro 900s and was looking for something just as fun but with smoother highs. This sounds like it will be perfect. My set will be here in a couple of days... Can't wait to try them. Thanks for a great review. You answered all my questions.

    You're review convinced me to pull the trigger on these back in Feb 2014...I got them for $89. I never upgraded the pads and didn't mind the stock cable, though I did mod it- coiled it because of the excessive length. I have to say I still like the sound and still use them at home. The original pads are flaking now so I just bought some replacement pads: Dekoni Audio Elite Sheepskin Leather Ear Pads for Beyerdynamic DT Series Headhones.
