Lets start with the packaging:
-Includes a convenient carrying pouch made from a very high quality material (Soft and durable), and also comes with a 6.35 mm (1/4 in) stereo jack adapter pre-installed to the headphones, which you can unscrew to reveal the 3.5 mm headphone jack underneath.
The Actual Headphones:
I have been using these headphones for over 2 months now, and I have to tell you that these things are solid, I dropped them several times and got away with it, they didn't break or anything. Very durable. And the White Color looks amazing on them, no stains so far. (See update)
The cups are made from a very soft material that covers your whole ear, very comfortable to the ear, even after long periods, though you might have sweaty ears after extremely long sessions (6 hours or more). I also want to mention that you may feel discomforted by the headphones the first time you use them (Which happened to me), and I think it happened because they were still fresh and they didn't soften up yet, but after you use them several times, your head will adjust to them and they will no longer hurt. Also, they are very adjustable; the swiveling cup makes it very easy for any kind of head to fit these headphones. Overall, they provide nice fit to everyone.
I can't give these headphones enough justice just by a literal review; you have to hear them to understand how amazing they are.Read more ›
The sound is amazing, and these headphones can handle a lot. There are three things I mainly listen to using my headphones, my MacBook Pro, which has a frequency response of 20-20, my amplifiers, which carry analog signals, and don't have a set frequency range, although I'm sure could reach the frequency range of the headphones, and lastly a home theatre system that I use in junction with my CD player, which allows for a 1/4 headphone plugin. On my laptop, I hear the music in a perfectly even range.Read more ›
Lows: the lows are punchy, and these are perfect for people looking for some true bass. These headphones will rattle your head when needed, but they also hold back where bass isn't the main part of the music.
Mids: the mids are somewhat recessed due to the heaviness of the lows, but they are still some of the best in headphones in this price range. The only headphone that is truly better here is the Shure SRH-840.
Highs: Very crisp and clear. They aren't extremely bright like the 840s, but that's actually what I love about these cans. I'm not crazy about having piercing highs. These offer the perfect amount, especially for vocals and rock music.
Overall, the M50s are a great bargain, especially at this price point. They offer a warm sound for bass lovers, but still have some of the best mids and highs out there. Any type of genre sounds great: Hip/Hop, rap, rock, classical, pop, or country. For anyone who wants to get the most out of their music, or if you want to get started in the audiofile community, these are perfect. Plus, they look and SOUND 10x better than any pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.
