[Visions Electronics] KEF M500 Hi-Fi On-Ear Headphones Black - HOT

Was checking this out while it was on sale for $198. Had a good feeling it'd drop even more; likely trying to rid the stock.
Reviews were pretty good on these.

Yay! Great price.

How are these compare to, say, the DT-1350?

What it's worth, coming from the hd600 so I found the on-ear form factor unbearable; especially with glasses. Ymmv

Similar here. I got in on this. Wasn’t thrilled with these at all. Sound quality aside the comfort was horrific.

I purchased these during a previous sale, and my feeling is that they are quite comfortable overall. Sometimes the band presses at the top of your head which can be painful, but not if you adjust forward or backward. The memory foam cushions are definitely a different feel from something like Grados which I also have, so they may not be to everyone's liking. For work environments, the fact that they don't leak sound is a plus.

I purchased on last time, it is really a good deal, the quality is awesome.

The only drawback is it is a bit slippry, if you bend down while weaing this, this might slip.

I just bought the NAD Viso HP50s at the same price from Visions a few weeks ago, and have come to like them but not necessarily love them. Going to compare with these and sell off the other pair!

Agreed.

Lowest it's been has been $95 or $90 if you pick up in store.

Sigh....bought this and really liked the hi-fi aspect of it. Unfortunately, the clamping on the ears was just way too much for me :(

Going to return this tomorrow :(

Perhaps b/c of my big head...Bose QC35 & Sennheiser HD598 fits me fine

I am so sad and at the same time jealous of people who can pull this off as the M500 feels and sounds premium...metal over plastic Bose & Sennheiser n.n

Kind of ironic considering the clamping force on the HD600's make it impossible to wear glasses.

Thinking of picking up a set of headphones and the KEF's have great reviews for sound and a nice price but with your comments on comfort I'm unsure as the closest Vision's store is about an hour drive for me if I have to return them.
Loved trying out the Sennheisers and Sony's wireless recently at Bestbuy but they are $200+ cost wise.
Purchase from a trusted RFD (seller & buyer) 100% positive feedback. Your assured for a safe and clean transaction. Located in the York Region. Can ship at your expense if paying by EMT, please no trades-PM is the key!
