Have had the SHP9500 for several years and they are awesome. They used to be $50 regularly and hit $45 once that I'm aware of, but still a good deal at $55.

As for the Fidelio X2, I've been itching for a pair of those for a long time. Not sure I've ever seen them at $99. I'm having a really hard time holding off since I really don't need them.

For the money they have no right to sound as good as they do. Got mine as a gift during the run up to them being out of stock worldwide. If you know anyone who has more headphones than anyone can use, this is a great addition to their collection. If you want sennheiser HD 650 but you're strapped for cash, this is like 90-95 percent of the performance for 20 percent of the price.

Probably the SHP9500.

The X2 is great too, but I wouldn't say it sounds like the Sennheiser HD 650. The X2 are wide, spacious, open headphones that have a decent amount of bass - particularly for open headphones. Thus they're great for movies, music with bass ranging from rock to EDM, and for gaming - both singleplayer games due to their bass response making games sound fun and multiplayer games due to their wide open soundstage (though if your interest is purely competition, there are better options that are bass-shy).

The X2s are great, I'm surprised to see them discounted this low.

SHP9500 is a bit over-hyped I'm sorry to say. They certainly aren't bad, but they are lacking in bass and the treble can be a bit sharp in some music. They have some of the least amount of clamping force, which can actually be a negative. Definitely not headphones to wear if you are going to be active or moving your head around very much.

bought these about half a year ago to replace broken ath-m50. both sound very similar to me, but these have a bit less bass, and are open back. the big plus are the cloth earpads & headband, so they won't rub off after a few months of heavy use, and the hinges aren't plastic, so they won't crack quickly. you can also attach a vmoda boom pro mic to them, and you'll have one of the best gaming headphones.

Wonderful for gaming. Super light weight and easy to attach the vmoda mic to. Probably the best $80 set up for gaming. Only thing I can say bad is these used to be this price all the time until the manufacturer went belly up for a while.

These are great as long as you don't care about bass.

Have been daily driving these for a couple of years. Great set of cans for all around use (gaming, non-critical music listening, etc.) and very comfortable.

Had these for over a year. Most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. I use them with an amp/dac that makes them sound better for high bitrate music but I hear no difference for Youtube/Netflix/gaming. Perfect price/comfort/quality balance for me. imo you start running the risk of buying snake oil if you spend much more than 50 on wired cans.
