Conclusion: These are phenomenal to say the least. A few of my buddies had Beats by Dre (all the different versions) and they don't even come close in terms of sound quality. These are the BEST sounding closed back headphones on the market! Don't over pay for other brands. These are, by far, the best!
Summary: The newer white M50 sells now for about $160 to $170 USD, and the sound compares well above the $250 range in my opinion. I find a very slight treble peak and/or sibilance on some tracks, a small midrange coloration, and a bass that actually increases slightly below 50 hz to about 30 hz.
Conclusion: For this price you have to be crazy to purchase any other headphone. To this day when I see people walking around the gym with their BEATS on trying to demo them for people while they leak horribly I laugh. If only they knew about these headphones that are half the price and twice as good.
Conclusion: These headphones are phenomenal, the highs, mids, and lows are all fantastic! The sound is absolutely amazing. These are probably the best sounding, and most durable headphones I've ever owned!
Conclusion: Great headphones, easily out-perform headphones twice their price. Even though they are 'studio monitors', they have a great overall range; deep bass, piercing highs, mids aren't lacking at all. Comfortable to wear for hours, look good.
