omg... My ears legit.... well you know... Can't say it on here lol


kinda shocked how many high end phones they had there with very low end ones and skull candy.... lol

I was very impressed and I am quite the audiophile so for that price of $200 I'd say they were pretty nice... Now I am having a delima. I want to buy them but they don't have a detachable cable. I mean. If you are gonna pay that much it would be nice but I understand a lot of headphones don't have them. Nor even $600 ones. So my question is this...


Does anyone know in the sub under $150-$200 range that sound just like those or simlar that have a detachable cable? I know its not the most important thing in the world but it would be nice to be able to switch it out if it is damaged one day or changing colors. It would suck to throw away a $200 dollar set of headphones if you accidentally ran over them with a chair that just so happened to be sharp enough to cut the wire lol

The M50s are very overpriced at $200, they're arguably overpriced at $100 depending on who you talk to. They're an entry level "audiophile" headphone at best. They get hyped up on the internet from people like you who have never heard anything better. Depending on what type of sound you're looking for, they might be the best choice at the price bracket you're in.




Oh yah, DARQ MX topic.

Please tell me more about what I have and haven't done. I've heard them. They're not anything special. I like the Creative Aurvana Live and my Brainwavz HM5 more.

The Sennheiser HD558s sound better in my opinion and are around $150.
