Customer Reviews

I like bass, but I also like mids and highs.
DPG
The sound quality from these is amazing, and the bass is very clear and not overpowering.
Jordan
They are very comfortable, fit well, and most importantly have a great sound.

I don't have much experience with higher quality headphones, but I am really taken aback by how great these sound. All I really have to compare them to are my friends dre beats and I would say that these are vastly superior.

The bass is very heavily emphasized and it doesn't muddy out anything else, but also sounds good with some classical that I listen to. They also get pretty loud without an amp. (using a sansa clip plus as an mp3 player)

Very comfortable. I wore these for about 6 hours and the only discomfort I felt was how warm my ears started getting over time. That is saying a lot since I wear glasses. The ear pads are also very soft. That would probably be why it doesnt hurt to wear them with glasses.

The point where the cord meets the jack is covered by a spring to help prevent damage to the cord. This is a nice feature since I have a tendency to put my mp3 player in my pocket on the go.

The only cons I could really give these are in the design. The cord is a 9 foot straight cable. It can be a little awkward to use if you take them everywhere like I do. It is also made out of mostly plastic. It certainly feels sturdy enough but my friends and I have both noticed it looks kind of like a toy (atleast in this limited edition color)

Not a native speaker, so excuse me if I somehow fail to describe what I exactly have in mind. But I feel the need to express myself regarding this product.

I am impressed by these headphones, more so than I have EVER been impressed by any headphones I have owned so far, including 2 somewhat similiar Sennheisers. I am listening to songs in FLAC format, and the sound in various guitar-based musics is so "defined". Everything is right there without stepping on any of the others feet. The bass is not superimposing itself on anything but is everpresent. The high and lows are well balanced. The sound is just amazing for the price they are sold at here in Amazon as of this writing (120-150$ range).

I gotta say the design is not as catchy as some other brands, like dr-you-know-who. The build quality is "good" not "great". There are many better looking, better designed headphones out there. If you are in for the looks, dont even bother with these. But if what you hear is what matters, you probably wont be able to spend any better 150$ for the job.

The isolation is working very well. I find the cord guard useful. These are not the lightest of the kind, but on your head they dont feel as heavy as they do in hand. I have been sitting in front of my computer for a bit more than 2 hours so far and dont have the least bit of aches or anything. I probably can keep this going for another 2 hours with no problems at all.

If you are considering about buying these headphones, stop considering and act right now. Trust me you wont ever regret it if youre looking for a headphone of this kind.

I just received these beauty's today, and have been listening to them for about 4 hours on and off and I have to say I am EXTREMELY impressed. I purchased these cans because I have been becoming more and more picky about sound quality, (Birth of an audiophile? let's hope so) and I read MANY great reviews (about the M50's in general as they are identical to the non LE versions, other than look) I have been listening to many types of music, mainly electronic, but some classical/jazz and they sound near perfect. You can hear a Pp Clarinet solo like it was right next to you... One complaint on sound has to bee that the highs are a TAD harsh, but I'm hypothesizing that they will smooth out after burning them in for awile.
They are quite comfortable over my medium long hair, but push a little underneath my ears, nothing too bad, just a smidgen annoying if I focus on it. You can loosen or tighten the headband by spreading the headphones out. My ears do get a bit warm after a bit, but just by taking the cans off and shaking my head they cool down, and back to the comfort and MUSIC!

I will edit this review once I have burned them in, and once I purchase a Headphone Amplifier and Ipod dock out adapter. (pretty set on the Fiio E6 and L3 products)

As of right now (before burn-in) I give these headphones a 9/10

The headphones are amazing and the quality is great for the low price point. No other headphones in this price range can even compare. The shipping was fast, and there was no damage whatsoever to the package itself. Will definitely buy from here again! Thank you!

The bass is perfect, the highs mids and lows are well balanced and they fit quite comfortable over you ears-it pretty much blocks out any outside sound

I got these for $130, I guess it was cyber Monday deal, I had no idea but I got them. As a musician I can tell you that these are incredible. I had AKG K240s semi open headphones, but I wanted more audible and clear bass, also the high frequencies are just perfect same as the k240s, I didn't notice any distortion when listening to Dub Step as somebody mentioned in one of the comments, also they look awesome, very comfortable.
