Summary: I'm coming from Sennheiser HD280s, so compared to the HD280s, the ATH-M50x provide a lot more clarity across the range, and are expressive in low end where the HD280s were silent. The ambient attenuation seems similar, but I do hear more sound leaking out from the ATH-M50x. Not a negative for me, but possibly important in other settings to other people.
Summary: I am so accustomed to the earbuds that come with any smartphone, so I am by no means an expert on what is and isn't good sound quality, but I can say with certainty that I was absolutely blown away by these. As far as comfort, these headphones have a very soft set of ear pads as well as a comfortable headband, making the hours of listening enjoyable. They don't hug too tight, just enough to keep them on your head.
Summary: This headphone is totally different from those cheap headphones and earphones. With it I can feel those songs which I have heard hundreds times become...more impressive! I mean you can hear everything! When I started to listen to music with this cool headphone, I am going to cry! The sound is so great! By the way, the shipment is awesome (sold by Amazon with Prime). I got it for two days after I placed the order. I couldn't be satisfied more! LOVE IT! ENJOY IT!
Summary: I'm a first-timer to Audio Technica Ath-50x and here are my thoughts. The main reason for my purchase is listening to it during commutes in NYC and also because it has three cables. From what I've researched, cables often gets damaged from the ATH-M50 and often you have to replace the whole headphone. Luckily, I stumbled across the m50x and I cancelled my order for my m50wh.
