How big is the quality difference between the Fantano AKG K 240s and the ATH-M50s? The difference in price is almost double so im wondering if the ATHs are proportionately priced/worth it. Help me out, /mu/.

Here's the difference (or lack thereof) in frequency response between the two. You can compare with other headphones and build your own graph here:

really? i have them.

Can someone explain me why they're bad?
Beside the fact they're a meme?
>>
>>53415121
they aren't.

/mu/ just hates anything that's popular.
>>
I think the the Sennheiser HD 598s are better than both and are only a little more expensive than the ath m50s
>>
>>53415121
they're not bad at all
>>
>>53415166
but are they significantly better than the AKGs?

Let me guess, you fucking bandwagoning retards don't know how to read a freq response chart?
>>
>>53415164
True, but they sort of want an amp, which is another 50-100 units of western currency

Also, closed back for the maximum niggerbass and being able to use the ath-m50s outside is nice

price =/= quality
akg k240s are open/semi open headphones, while M50s are closed back. as a result the k240s will have better instrument separation than the k240s and be more balanced overall. the M50s are a little emphasized in the bass end of things. i would recommend the k240s if you listen to music with instruments, and the M50s if you listen to mainly electronic/rap/hiphop/pop.
but either way they are both pretty good headphones in which you cant go wrong either way.
