I wouldn't buy the M50s. I would rather have Samson SR850s and pocket the cash for other purchases or if I didn't want to pocket the cash buy some Ultrasone Pro 550s.

You'd be happier with either product over the M50s, although the new M50s took care of some of the issues the older ones had, still not worth it imo.

If bass isn't really what you're looking for, but still want some bass presence but are looking for a great overall experience, research the T50RPs. If you modify them, they'll likely be better than HD650s.

Hello everyone:

I thought I would take a moment to address some of the questions asked in this thread:

1-if you want to make sure you are getting the real ATH-M50, order from an authorized dealer. All authorized dealers are listed here:

http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/site/1e22eec97c088a8b/index.html

and the dealer will display the Audio Technica dealer logo with a unique number on the logo.

If you get a set of these that are legit, but you purchase from someone who it not a dealer, Audio Technica does not have to offer you a warranty.

2-There has been a recent bump in the "street" price on these, because the manufacturer has started enforcing MAP (minimum advertized pricing). If you are waiting to get them until the price comes down again, you may have a long wait.

3-I have personally listen to many sets of headphones, and these are easily worth the $159 price AT feels they should sell for - or more - IMHO, of course.

I don't want to mention our price, because I don't want this to be considered advertizing. I really just want to clarify a few things.

Questions to me directly are welcome!

Hope this helps!

I paid ~$110 for my pair of M50's but that was around 2 year ago.

Really only bought them for the few times I want the isolation and the bass for trance/electronic music.

I really liked them when I first got them, but it wasn't until I put padded Beyerdynamic DT 250/280 pads on them that I really started to enjoy them. Much more comfortable than the worn pleather pads I was dealing with and the bass went through the roof, literally. Somehow between the pads, and the foam inserts that I sewed into the ear pads to cover the drivers, the sound signature changed for the better.

They still have one of the worst sound stages ever though, good luck trying to game with them and figure out anything more than left or right.
