I bought these like 2 or 3 weeks ago from massdrop, but they still haven't dropped the ath-m50x's so i can't use them :/ But they do seem very comfy except they do clip the top of my ear like they don't fit, but it might be different on the headphones idk.
I have the m50x's and just received my pair of msr7's today. I recommend (if you're willing to sink in an extra $100,) to buy the msr7's. They have much crisper/clearer highs, and have a better sound profile than the m50x's. They are also far more attractive and less bulky. The build quality is very good. The m50x's are not nearly as good as a listening headphone, and are only practical for studio monitoring, in my opinion.
Thanks for the insight. I'll check those out.
Doesnt Velour Pads remove more Bass from the already slightly Bass-shy MSR7 though? Head-Fi users still recommend the MSR7 stock pads (as opposed to the comfier velour) because of the sound sig of the MSR7. Would like to hear your first-hand findings.
I own the MSR7 and can attest to this. The stock pads are comfortable and have the (in my opinion) best sound signature of any pad with the MSR7. Keep in mind I had a small selection of pads to test with, though.
I'd also mention that while the bass in the MSR7 resembles a more neutral emphasis, it is incredibly clear and satisfying.
