The m50 can often be gotten for $120 here http://www.soundprofessionals.com/cgi-bin/gold/item/ATH-M50<br />it used to go as low as $100, but it seems to have raised in price in response to high demand.Currently it's $119 after the rebate. So i think you'd have to do better than $129.

They used to be some of the best cans for the money back in the day. For $100 they were damn hard to beat. They are pretty lacking in detail, and are pretty bass heavy. I got my first pair of open cans a few months ago, AT ad900's, which are totally on the opposite end of the spectrum. A bit lacking in the bass, but the soundstage and detailing is way above the m50's. I don't think i'll go back to closed cans any time soon.

ad900 is inferior to fidelio x1 from my audition. i bought the ad900 after my dismay on the he500 after being one of the first reader on the first day of Davidmahler's post, I even shared it on some other forums first.<br /><br />i have about 50 hours on ad900 and 150 on fidelio x1.
