  • What A Beaut.

    As reviewed by Dylan on 2/17/2015

    These headphones introduce revolutionary qualities in audio itself. I have never heard audio more clearly. With these headphones, I hear so many underlying aspects in music I have never heard through other headphones or speakers. This allows even more to appreciate in music than before for me personally. With the audio quality being so crisp and rich, I unfortunately have a new extremely high standard for audio. I use to think the headphones that come with today's iPhones and iPods were at least high quality, but now I consider them kinda poor. I dare not even touch the $20 earbuds I have bought from walmart. So obviously as far as audio quality goes, the most important aspect of headphones, I give these a 10/10. The quality is immaculate. As for physical build, they are very comfortable and I can wear them for a long duration of time without noticing discomfort, and when I do, it's hardly noticeable. The ear muffs are very well cushioned and soft. The appearance also looks very sleek and professional. Best headphones I have ever owned.

  • Great sound, good looks and friendly to your wallet

    I use my headphones everyday and they are an essential party of my travel accessories. The highs and lows are crisp, clear and robust. I'm a petite woman and find the feel and look complimenting. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods while traveling and no battery design is a plus plus plus! Audio-Technics will always be part of my listening needs.

  • A worthy addition to my headphone collection.

    As reviewed by William Estell on 5/21/2014

    I have heard so much about these headphones, that I finally decided to pick up a pair. First, I have to admit that I was not very impressed with the visual appearance of these headphones. They're made mostly of plastic and not many metal components to be found anywhere, except for the metal bands that reinforce the headband. These things sound really clean and although I use them primarily for DJ use, I have been using them for all sorts do things and they're still impressing me. They come with THREE different replaceable cables and a pretty nice leather(ish) carrying pouch. The ear pads are made from a very nice material that feels like real leather, and is extremely soft. The foam in the ear pads feels like it could be memory foam but holds its shape very well. Although they are made from all plastic, they have no noticeable noise or "creaks" that are common with headphones like this, although I've only had them for a few weeks. They feel like they are gonna last so I have no regrets with my purchase so far. I'm comparing these up against a few headphones... The Sony MDR7506, Sennheiser HD25, Sennheiser Amperior, V-Moda Croosfade LP2 and I'd say that they're closest to the 7506 in size and shape. The Sony MDR7506 sounds just a touch brighter in the upper mid-range compared to the ATH-M50x. The ATH-M50x sounds completely neutral across the entire spectrum and I can easily focus in on any details I wanted to hear, without effort. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone without a good set of monitors, and if you're looking for a new pair, definitely check these out. Especially for the price!
