    Nevermind... I'm an idiot.

    :p

    I thought you were talking about the Sennheiser HD660.

    Well to give my input eh? I went to guitar center to test the fabled M50's out. I personally thought they were a bit too bass heavy compared to the dt770's that were also there to test. Now by no means is the m50 a bad headphone but honestly from my own opinionated testing, the DT770's are the better buy (plus they are immensely comfortable :) )

    The M50s are more of a fun headphone than a remotely accurate headphone.

    The 770/880/990 are definitely very comfortable in my opinion.

    The M50s is a bit bass heavy. The 770 is bass as well. The difference to me between these two phones is the 770 is gratingly aggressive in the highs in my opinion. The M50 isn't esp clear or detailed in the treble, but I don't find the M50s nearly as fatiguing as the 770s.

    Having said that, if I listened to well recorded music exclusively, I'd go for the 770s over the M50s. I'd go for the M50s if I listened to music with a fair bit of mediocre prosecution values mixed in there. Of course, id definirely go for the 880 over the 770s or the M50s.

    Anybody tried the Senn HD 579, 599's? I read so many reviews, both by the writers and user input and finally chose the HD579 for no particular reason other than it was in my budget and that was where on the dartboard it landed. Should be here on Sat!! :banana:

    Somebody at Stereophile went gaga over the Thinksound On2 and gave it an "A" rating. I liked the description and so took a chance. The $200 minus $50 gift card ($150 total!) seems a bargain for these on - ear, closed - back, wood, phones with comfy ear pads. I really like them, but I haven't heard really expensive "A" rated phones yet.
