pretty neat deal, bought these at jabens last years for $200 at Melbourne city.
Good deal! I need to control my headphone addiction…already have akg m7xx…
I just bought the ATH-MSR7 for $225 from eBay
The M500X at this price level is great esp. matte grey.
I'm slowly going broke.. thanks for this deal
how much better are these to the M50's that i already have?
worth the upgrade?
I heard that they are exactly the same, with just the removable cable of course.
Having the removable cable is a great addition, but as you already have one you should look into just modding your current headphone
I did this a couple of days ago and it works great
There are a number of youtube videos that answer this but for the most part; comfort, cable and colours are the main differences. The drivers are still the same.
ah man… i can still cancel my order of the Sennheiser hd598 Cs to get these, i like the looks of these and plenty of positive reviews.
There's a few comparisons around such as this. Seems to come down to personal preference, but the ath-m50x' seem to be ozbargainers favorite headphones :P
M50s are overrated, they are also incredibly uncomfortable.
thanks, im gonna keep the hd598 Cs.
I'll have to disagree, M50s are very comfortable.
I also disagree, some of the most comfortable headphones I own… and I have 7 set currently
do you get a chance to use all 7 ?
am now considering getting these as well as keeping the hd598Cs or just keeping the ones that i prefer.
TBH no not really haha - I use the M50x mostly, I have some I use for gym, due to sweating, A Klipsch set next to my bed when I can't be bothered getting others and my M50x at my PC. I also have 2 sets of Turtle Beach for the PS4… but they are irritating to wear
hd598c is closed and M50x is open so why not both :p
from what I've googled, aren't they both closed?
Oops you are right, I had my m50 a long time ago and my memory is not very reliable now.
Actually for this price point, I would highly recommend Philips X2, which were available for under $200 earlier.
I ordered from that deal… Amazon cancelled the orders and issued refunds.
That's too bad.
I already have X1 otherwise I would get that x2 in a heartbeat.
Yeah, I sold my x2 when having a headphone cull and wish I'd kept them now. That deal was great but they overreached so just cancelled them all.
ATH-40X are favoured by same as more neutral and better than the 50x. YouTube videos if interested in a different opinion. I have neither as I have too many headphones at the moment already.
My 50x short cables got stuffed and I don't want to use the long cable. Any ideals where to get cheap replacement?
or ebay hong kong $3? theyre just a standard 3mm jack arnt they?
Nope, they're a proprietary cable. It's a 2.5" jack with a locking mechanism.
You can get some cheap-ish ones still: http://m.ebay.com.au/itm/Grey-Cable-with-Remote-Mic-for-Audi...
Nice headphones. Recently switched to DT770 80Ohm. Oh my god, I didn't know headphone comfort. Similar price deal is going on at the moment. Check reviews of both headphones before deciding.
I bought the DT770 32 ohm listening to ipod classic with no amp. Does anyone think they distort with volume above half way?
such a tough choice
How would you rank them with ear comfort & sound quality of Bose Qc 25 or 35?
Bought the matte grey!
I reckon I will wait for pre Xmas or Boxing day sales.
Best headphones under $300 in terms of sounds/quality/price factors, hands down.
So much misinformation in this thread.
"M50x is open"
"It's a 2.5" jack"
"Actually for this price point, I would highly recommend Philips X2" - not available at that price point
I've bought two pairs around this price, looks like the RRP was bumped and then put on sale by some places (Scorptec have them for $199 on sale from $249, I paid $199 for them from Scorptec April 2015)
I've always seen them at 279rrp.
I checked my order history on Scorptec's site, they were equal cheapest at the time within Australia atleast, and they're definitly the 50x's, they're on my head at the moment.
These are good headphones of course. But if they hurt your ears because the cups are too tight try stretching the metal band wide (it can take a wide stretching without breaking) and also buy bigger cups like this it makes these headphones a lot more comfortable https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00OLKV5Q8/ref=yo_ii_img?ie=U...
bought one ! thanks OP!
Are the Sennheiser HD600's at $318 a good price?
It has been $300 before but it looks to be the cheapest currently that i could find. It has pretty good reviews and you can always come into the shop to try/ compare them at no cost
These or the sennheiser momentum 2.0 over ears for travel use?
Sennheiser. Better sound quality (IMO) but also far, far more comfortable.
Up to $192 now :(
