First of all, we have to make things clear, I believe that if you are here it's because you are willing to invest into something you and your ears will enjoy for a pretty long time.
It has almost been a year since I lend ears over this pair of marvelous headphones, if there's anything you want to know about this pair of cans, you will find out here.
First of all you have to know what you're dealing with, you have ( or will have ) a pair of professional headphones, forget about weird frankeinstein (pun intended) heapdhones on the market, if you want quality, if you want amazing sound waves filling up your ears you would buy this product without guessing no more.
I use this headphones mainly for 3 things:
a) Gaming
b) Music Listening ( Audiophile )
c) Sound Edition
Lets start with A, Gaming.
There are quite a lot of games that put effort in offering you a sweet real-ish ambient for realism's sake. You won't be dissapointed, call it 5.1, or 7.1, this got it, you won't need expensive, innecesary hardware. Give the M50's a shot, you will love it.
Music Listening.
This is a point, how would i describe the M50's ? Real.
These are the most comfortable, real, pleasing headphones I've ever heard ( And i've heard quite a few ). The bass is booming as you would ever want it to be, the mid ranges are awesome, not too much, not too little, just where you want mid ranges to be, in the middle, the highs are quite impressive, crispy, crystal clear sound you wont even think about the money you spend on these.
Sound Edition.
This is another point, call it 'cleanin' up my song' or as i like to call it 'Accurately excelling performance' if this is your cannon, put the bullet in.
The Physics.
I have to say that if there's one thing I'm in love with this headphones besides the sound, that would be the looks. The M50's will steal eyes around you, these pair looks absolutely amazing.
The screw in adaptor is flaw proof, won't come out, promise. Easy to set up, easy to listen, easy to love everything about them.
For the burn in, you can live it, take them out, put them on, and plug them on your favorite player, in about 3 hours you'll have the full performance in your ears and your heart in the cans.
The only weakness I would point out off of this headphones is the cable, is sensible, but you won't feel like going into a mosh pit wearing this ones, or putting them in a shredder. The durability is AWESOME, I've literally twisted the band around and... no damage.
I definetely recommend the M50's. Get them now.
You won't regret it.
Ever.
Pros Casual Listening, Travel, Studio, Gaming
Cons sensible plug wiring

does the cable come out of the headphones incase the cable breaks?

They easily do, remove your ear pads and unscrew, the de-solder the cables and replace if you wish.

I would for starquad or mogami cable.

For the plugs, neutrik would do the trick.
