Summary: The headphones sound great so far, although I only have 1 week of listening time on them. I upgraded from mid-range Shure SRH240A headphones (which had served me well for 3+ years) and the improvement in sound quality is noticeable. The overall sound is warmer, the bass is punchier and the mids are more detailed. I find them to be very comfortable to wear so far. I'm very happy with the build quality, the packaging and the accessories.
Summary: What a great pair of headphones, own a pair of M40s and when I heard of the M50x's I knew it was a must purchase. The build quality is great, solid feel to them and there jointed well. You will have no problem turning them wrong way, they will not break easily. As far as sound great blend of fullness mixed with good lows. My only gripe about these headphones is, if you have to go to another pair of headphones say like for gaming, or in ear for when you are on the go.
Summary: I'm not a hardcore audiophile by any means, so take this review as you wish. I decided to go with the M50x's after countless hours of reviews and research. The previous M50's got amazing reviews so when I saw these come out with the detachable cables, I thought why not? Well, I can honestly say you will NOT be disappointed. Every sound these headphones produce is so crisp and clear.
The ATH-M50x are the First professional headphones I've ever purchased.

Summary: These headphones deliver such clean sound it makes them extremely enjoyable to listen to music. Also they are excellent if you play video games, the ATH-M50x brings out sounds that you wouldn't normally hear. These headphones are also great for mixing multiple audio tracks as these headphones point out imperfections in sound very well. The genres of music I mostly listen to are Rock, Alternative, some Prog, Pop, Electronica and Some hip-hop.
Summary: I had some Beats By Dre. Studios ($300+) that I had been using for a while. I decided to pick up a pair of ATH-M50x's from Amazon and I was shocked from the results! The bass is a tiny bit less than the Beats By Dre, but it sounds SO MUCH CLEANER! I totally prefer the ATH-M50x's bass over the Beats. Sound quality is amazing. They're huge, so they don't stress on your ears, which is great. Overall, 10/10, unbelievable. Ignore every other review that you've seen.
Summary: I searched for several months for a suitable set of headphones. I wanted them primarily the watch blu-ray movies and to listen to tv late at night and not disturb anyone. After several attempts from different manufacturers ( SONY, AKG, CREATIVE, BEYERDYNAMIC, BLUEDIO, LOGITECH ) I came across the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x on amazon, thank goodness the search is over. The M50x has a one of a kind sound signature.
