Summary: Great headphones, love them! I hang around with high school kids with more money to spend than ... me (HS teacher), and have been shopping for some time. My research led me here. I am more than satisfied. Considered the noise cancelling Bose. The ATH-M50X are not noise cancelling, but they do a great job (because of the fit and design) of noise reduction. And the sound quality! My old ears are happy!
Summary: I wanted a good pair of headphones that know one had around hear, every one was buying the Beats, Monsters, and other brands and I was never the one to follow the crowd. So I began my search on YouTube and found the video of Audio-Technic ATH-M50R. Through various YouTube videos it was time for the new 2014 models of Audio-Technics to come out. All the improvements had been made and they were just what I had been waiting for.
Summary: I purchased these after reading all the raving reviews around the internet. I have never owned anything by Audio Technica before so I wasn't sure what to expect. They have an excellent sound range from 20Hz, (which is the lowest I can hear personally), to the highest notes that I would care to tolerate. It is certainly true that it gives you a whole new perspective of music. Even the music you've listened to for many years.
Best audio quality in the price range with updated features

Summary: These M50x are everything I expected and more from what I had heard about them. The detachable cables are very convenient and the padding is comfortable. The audio quality is suburb as it does a great job replicating the music exactly how the artist intended it to sound. Better than any beats, a great buy.
Summary: Wow. Just wow. These are amazing!!! I've seen reviews all around for the M50's but these are even better! Super comfortable, great audio, detachable cable, 3 options for the cables, and a bag. For this price they're a steal. Forget those $300+ headphones that don't even sound half as good as these. Again these are amazing!
5 Star Headphones don't believe the crap you hear about volume
13 March 2014
Summary: I have had these for 3 weeks now, they have superior sound quality, they are 9/10 comfortable, they are loud enough, if over 3/4 volume is not loud enough for you, you have hearing loss. These headphones have clean bass that is not over powering. It took me a week to get used to them, but now i love them. I listened on my friends beats and bose, and these had the best sound quality, just people that are used to the big boosted bass don't like these as much.
Summary: overall sound quality is really good. I have tested these with and without my fiio e11 amplifier for about two weeks now playing lots of base heavy tracks both on my xperia z and on my pc with an asus maximus vi gene motherboard (which supposed to have superior audio). My conclusion is that these heaphones are good by itself, but with an amplifier they really shine and is 2x better, its comparable to the sound quality that i get in my car that has a 12'' sub and a...
