Summary: i have owned the ath-m50's for 4 years now and damn i feel old, but the sound quality and the durability still shocks me even today. i am even still using the original ear pads that came with it and they havent even cracked, ripped or anything. these headphones made me an audiophile and i love every bit of it.
Pros: The best audio quality for its price. They even match the specs of some audiophile headphones that go for $800+. crisp highs and mids that are very clear and precise. deep and clear bass that doesn't drown out the highs and mids. Crazy durable. if you are debating about getting beats by dre please shoot your self, but that argument is for a different review. you dont know quality until you try these on a good sound card like the xonar stx. they are extremely comfy and...
Cons: i didnt get the coiled cable. i hate running over the wires with my computer chair. but so far no rips or tears in the cord.
Excerpt: I bought them about 6 months ago. I really like the sound of them. It's (in my opinion) the best sound for the price.Sound is very subjective. But I never met one person who doesn't like the sound signature of these headphones. And they are very close to flat, so you can change them as you wish with minimum quality loss, even on devices without great sound source.The connector is very solid, so as the rest of the headphones!sound for the price: 10/10!
Summary: This headphone is very good. Great sound all around and balance between the high-mid-lows. The low impedance makes this headphone easy to drive from ipod or general mp3 players and don't really require an amp. The coiled cable is very nice as it is not too long and can be bundled up. Since these headphones are not open headphones and the ear cup makes a complete seal, my ear gets sweaty when it's hot. Also, the leather looks like will go bad over time from wear.
Excerpt: I use the product for engineering music. I have used it to mix, master, record and for my leisure as well. There are so many pros to list like accurate bass response, accurate and precise highs & lows as well as the price itself for the headphones. One gripe with the headphones and is by far the only con I could think of is the material surrounding the ears can cause you to sweat and become hot after long sessions so periodically take the headphones off to be sure to not...
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: These full sized, closed headphones offer a superior experience, in just about every way, to Beats. The construction is better, the price is better, and most importantly the sound is far better with tight solid bass that doesn't overwhelm the rest of the frequency spectrum. The soundstage is expansive for closed headphones, and the midrange, where vocals are, is incredibly sweet.The M50s are durable, collapsible, and sound isolating, so they're good for commuting.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: Great headohones, I bought them two days ago from NCIX, they shipped that night and then were on a truck for an entire day they next day, never got delivered, Purolator was full of excuses, DONT SHIP WITH PUROLATOR. I went and picked them up today and they were full of attitude. BUT, the headset is immaculate, Great packaging, great build quality, there is a spring on the jack so it cannot be reefed out of place or broken, comes with a studio jack incase you are using an...
Pros: Great sounds, Great quality, Chunky, but not too big, enough to take a beating, Comfy, noise cancelling without electronics works well.
Cons: Gets very warm on your ears after a while, though with short hair it doesnt matter.
