STOP WITH THE M50 SPAM how many times can these be featured as the top post. They aren't even that good compared to other headphones.

They're considered good headphones that are within reach of people with around a $100 budget. That's why they get so much attention.
Personally though, I like the Sennheiser HD 598 better at that price point. They have hit $100 before as well. They're more comfortable and have a more natural sound. The M50 has more bass, but i think it actually has too much and colors the music. (not nearly as much as craptastic beats or monster headphones, but still more than my liking)

TommyDreamer is right... they are a pair of headphones that are for people on a bit of a budget... that being said, I think that you have to get over $500-$600 or into some high end CIEMs before you get sound quality that matches the M-50x... granted they're not the MOST accurate pair of headphones (they have a bass leaning) however they sound incredible. So I have to disagree, they are quite a better compared to other headphone... period. Now, if you factor in their price, that makes them even MORE desirable.

Don't forget AKG k553, AKG K545, etc. The ATH M50x are 150$+ easily, they aren't in the 100$ range and are by no means cheap, they aren't built as well as other pairs in the price range.

Exactly. Back when they were 100$ with no hype they were great headphones, but now they are just overpriced and overhyped.

Pretty much. The M40s are actually a pretty good deal, but the M50s are overpriced at closer to 200$. Too many pairs of better headphones are available at a better price for them to be worth it. I don't really see where the hype came from in the first place though.
