You can go over to head-fi to get the best possible info on these, tons of it, from modding the eq-ing

There is also a procedure or method used before doing anything with the headphones to get the 'true' output, this is to let them 'burn in' for a period of them, which is usually playing a diverse set of music to work in the drivers, usually a good set of hours. People recommend up to 100 hours whilst some will do 40-75.



Just a side note, the m50s comes with a straight cable and the m40x is the same thing but comes with two removeable cables, straight and coiled in case you wanted to change.

Yeah i saw that forum maybe ill read some things off there to get some more information to learn.

Wait, burn in period? Really? This, ive never heard of. And when you mean drivers, you mean like physical hardware "drivers"? not like the drivers from software right?

And what do you mean, the M50 and M40x is the same? I have a bunch of cables here though, is there any advantage besides the cable issue?

Yeah, physical drivers, the little 'speakers' in the headphones.

The m50 and m40x are the same just that the m40x has detachable cables, a coiled and a straight cable. No cable issue just that coiled cables are heavy and can be a nuisance sometimes.

Well, not all of us notice difference or improvement after some good hours of use. Don't pay much attention to that, just enjoy.
