Conclusion: Would have been better with the removable cable. Other than excellent sound quality and very handy to carry in my bag. Would recommend definitely. Don't waste your money on the overly priced monster products.
Conclusion: I was standing in line in a grocery store and mentioned to the person ahead of me that I was interested in head phones. He recommended ATH m50's. This came from a 20 year old who had done his research. I bought them and they have been great.
Conclusion: These are popular headphones and for good reason. They are very comfortable on your head and really make you feel like you are alone with your audio (the noise cancelling helps here, too). I use these for my electronic drum kit and it completely cancels out any of the impact noises.
Conclusion: I bought these for my wife to use at night with her ipad. They also serve to drown out my snoring. I tried them myself and the quality is excellent. I ended up using them as monitors for mixing my new song I'm working on. The sound is very even and not colored in any way.
Conclusion: These headphones amaze me everytime i put them on my ears. The clarity of them is just amazing. The bass isnt going to hurt your ears or anything but it sounds good especially if you have a good sound source.
Conclusion: When we received the M50s in the mail, the first thing we did was test sound quality and tonal range. We listened to audio test recordings on these and about 4 other sets of headphones, including some decent-ish earbuds, cheap headphones, and a medium quality set of headphones.
