Sup guys,

Would it be worth it for me to grab some Audio Technica ATH-M50's to replace my Denon 1001's? I use them for primarily music, and I listen to rock and rap mostly. I do travel with them quite a bit, so I like the fact that the M50's fold, but I can't bring myself to drop $200 on a new set of headphones if I won't really see much improvement in audio quality. I'll be driving the headphones with my cell phone (yeah, yeah, I know) and my computer.

Yeah, but every single time I buy something on ebay I get a customs charge of at least $50, so I'd rather buy locally. Even if I did get them on ebay for ~$120 (incl. shipping), I don't want to waste my money.

So again, are the M50's much better than the 1001's?

From someone who has owned them, how durable are they? They look pretty beefy, so I can't imagine they'd break easily, but I want to be sure.

cuz I firmly believe that the beyerdynamic DTXXX 600ohm series offer the best bang for buck in the price range having listened to all the favourites, all properly amped and sourced minus Ultrasone in the price range e.g. AKG K701, Sennheiser HD600, HD650, beyerdynamic DT880 '03 250ohm, DT 880 '05 250ohm, DT880 600ohm, DT990 '05 250ohm, DT 990 600 ohm, DT770 '05 250ohm, DT770 600 ohm....

I haven't broken any headphones, not even HD555 which a lot of people reported they break and I use them daily. Take care of your equipment and it won't break. M-50s doesn't seem would brake easily unless you toss them out of a moving car on a highway.

Canadian customs laws for mail and parcel: anything manufactured in NA including mexico, only tax as duty. Anything manufactured elsewhere will include tariff and tax. Anything declared as a gift will be negated of any customs if value is under 65 cdn. Anything declared as a gift over the value of 65 will be charge the duty minus the duty of that 65cdn. For travelers if you're traveling and bringing things back in, if you're out of the country for more than 2 days you have a 700 cdn limit.

Don't ever pay for packages over ebay if you just tell the shipper how to declare it. Many retailers like Amazon.com and newegg.ca will ask you to pay couple of cents or dollars as customs that will negate a much higher customs fee going cross boarder as well.
