  • Summary: (Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars.
  • Pros: Excellent value, substantial sub-bass , non-fatiguing, relatively neutral/accurate, folds for traveling
  • Cons: Pleather gets sweaty, rotating earcups annoying if you're not a DJ, soundstage a bit small, not for those after perfectly neutral frequency response

  • Summary: This is a review by a person, with little headphone experience. The best headphones I have had before these would have to be the v-moda bass freq. I've had the skullcandy crushers, and some other of $20 or less phones.
  • Pros: Stylish, comfort, great sound, value, good quality
  • Cons: long cord, pressure may cause headaches or make your head hurt

  • Summary: I was looking for a great pair of over-ear's to use for work purposes. Did not want to go open back as sound leakage is a concern when sitting next to my co-workers. Did my research and came across these as well as the aiaiai tma-1 studios and I am not disappointed that I went with this set of cans.
  • Pros: Versatile, Strong build quality, Great Isolation, Price
  • Cons: A bit heavy for long term listening, Pads can make the side of your head sweat, takes some work to find it's sweat spot

  • Summary: There's always one. Every good thing has a dissenter, and that's me. The ATH-M50 cannot handle songs with lots of different lower frequencies going on at once because of the artificial bass extension.
  • Pros: Nice highs and mids, comfortable
  • Cons: Terribly artificial bass, NOT "monitors" (that's why nobody uses them as monitors), laughable build quality

  • Summary: The highs and the lows are, for lack a better descriptor "dry". There are people who "like" this sort of leanness, but it's never sounded "real" to me. It's the difference I hear in vintage (dry)Teac/Tascam analog tape gear vs. the better Pioneer machines from the mid-'70's forward.
  • Pros: Nice Packaging, laid back mids and highs
  • Cons: Pretty much everything else
