Painfully however, the ATH-M50X variant sounds nothing like the original ATH-M50. The original was far superior for a budget headphone. A fun listen.

You don't know what you are talking about here. These headphones are an industry standard. They have been produced exactly like this for more than ten years. The only way to release a limited edition is to change the color. With that being said, they look kinda awful in red...
