Sound & Vision Magazine
17 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Universally loved audio products are rare, but you won’t find too many folks with a bad thing to say about the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 headphones (it has around 800 five-star and just nine one-star ratings on Amazon).

  • Summary: My title, pros and cons sums it up rather well. Do NOT forget to warm these babies up for at least 30 h. They will change a lot in character, the first experience might be horrible, whilst after 40 h you love them.
  • Pros: Great sound, good enough for mixing. Very isolated. The weight and design gives a quality impression.
  • Cons: The treble is a bit sharp, even after the 40 h warmup. Long sessions will create spot pressure on the top of your head.

  • Summary: Before i get on to the sound, I will give you a summerized box reaction. Looking at these through the plastic box, they have an almost ikea asthetic about them, sort of a minimal hipster look.
  • Pros: Inexpendable value, dynamic, great feel and look, decent sound
  • Cons: Shrill highs at high volume, can distort, mids recessed, muddy and slow, weak sound stage

  • Summary: For the right price these are worth it. At 80-100$ they're a good buy. At MSRP of 150$ I would pass.  Excellent bass extension; play well out of mp3 players as well as amps; very detailed and "fun" sounding. Lacking in the midrange for vocals personally.
  • Pros: Sound and build quality
  • Cons: Mids are recessed

  • Summary: Like many others on this site, these phones are my stepping stone into the realm of "hi-fi"-headphones. These are indeed a good pair of phones for beginners and old-timers alike, because of their price/value ratio and ability to play all kind of music well.
  • Pros: - Very deep and semi-tight bass - Sparkly and detailed treble - Clarity - Isolation compared to competing phones - Comfort - Sleek looks - Price
  • Cons: - Lack of mids - Bass can be loose - Pads can get sweaty - Coiled wire not all that practical - Can cause spot-pressure pains

  • Summary: This is my first headphone when i was wanting to hear what a 'true' headphone sound like, and this is my review. I'm not that much of an audiophile but i know a thing or two about audio. HEADPHONES   The actual headphones look pretty nice, not too heavy or too light.
  • Pros: Uncolored sound, highly detailed at an affordable price point.
  • Cons: Not musical, very congested, Soundstage below average compared to others. Sibilance.
