    ATH-PRO500MK2RD Professional DJ Monitor Headphones 5 5 2 2
    Great product I bought this pair after my ATH-M40s broke down. These are really great. I've had them for about 3 months now. Fantastic quality, awesome looking, I absolutely love the fact that the cords are detachable now. One thing you should know is that these are a little more snug on your head than the ATH-M40s. These take about a week of wearing to break in... so don't freak out if they feel a little tight when you first get them. Overall these are great headphones. I would definitely recommend them.

    Outstanding I bought my Pro500mk2 in Taiwan for a very good price and has been using it for 2 years now. the sound quality is amazing and i can hear even the most quiet sound in the music i listen to. i highly recommend this headphone if you dont have the money for a M50s or Pro700mk2 May 20, 2013

    ATH-PRO500MK2RD vs. ATH-M50 (sound quality)?

    Are the highs and mid-range sounds of the ATH-PRO500MK2RD equal/better to that of the ATH-M50? I'm not a DJ, I just love the look of the ATH-PRO500MK2RD. I like folk music, so I just want to be sure that the bass won't completely overshadow the highs and mids of some the other genres I listen to. In short, is the ATH-PRO500MK2RD close to the ATH-M50 except with better bass? And will the enhanced bass muddy-up the more delicate highs and mids of the songs I listen to recreationally?

    Personally I think for folk music you'd be better served using the m50's I have the m50 and the ATH-PRO700MK2.

    I live in southern California and I want to purchase these from a store because I don't particularly like to buy things online.
    Are there any retailers around the 92253 area code?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question. This item has not started shipping in the US yet. It will start shipping in September and will reach some regional dealers and online dealers by the end of that month. I'm not aware of any established partners in Southern California, so you may find that purchasing them online will be your best bet.

    Dre Beats or ATH-PRO500's?

    My friend has a pair of these and he swears by them. But I also know alot of people that swear by beats. Looking at the general specs alone the frequency response is vast compared to beats. I want another opinion though.

    Answer: 
    The ATH-Pro500 are excellant headphones with very good frequency response. The price is also very good on these headphones. To be honest I've never listened to Beats. Please forgive me for this, but as the manufacturer I have to say they are much better than the Beats.
