Summary: As the description "professional monitor" indicates these cans are very accurate and may not be the best choice for someone who is looking for a high quality pair of headphones for everyday use playing a variety of music. What I mean is that because they are so accurate they reveal every flaw of a poorly recorded CD or low resolution audio file.
Summary: After 2 weeks of daily listening, these are my thoughts: If you've been using <$50 headphones, and want good sound, save up your lunch money and get these. It will change your audio world, guaranteed. If you've been lusting after those esoteric, stratospheric >$1000 Grados / Sennheisers, but live in the real world and work for a living, get these. Then take the rest and download the 100 album's you want most, sit back and enjoy your smart purchase.
Summary: I've waited so long to get the white version of Ath m50's :D These headphones are just, AMAZING. (Though,there needs to be some burn in process, I need to burn mine as well). Also, These headphone's built quality is also incredible. I give a full 5 star for these headphones. I highly recommend it.
Summary: Like all the other review says, this phone from Audio-technica is amazing, great bass, middles and highs, this product is recommended to everyone who desire to have an incredible audio experience. As far I can see the audio quality from this compete with much expensive headsets.
Summary: Before I bought the ATH-M50s, I bought the Sennheiser HD 25-1 II on amazon, but the HD 25-1 II was too tight for me when I wear glasses, so I returned it and get a M50s instead. For the sound quality, I think the HD 25-1 II sounds better and feels more dynamic than the ATH-M50s, when I listened to rock music, it was much more exciting compared to M50s. And also the noise isolation is much better on HD 25-1 II.
Summary: I'm not a sound expert and I don't know about db and trebles and all of that stuff, I bought them because I need them for the office mainly, I like to focus on my work. Before these I had the ATH-ANC7 that sound incredible and had the noise cancelling feature that this ones doesn't have but you won't miss. The sound is very clear and you can distinguish every of them very well. I can only found 2 cons.
Summary: I purchased these 6 months ago after going back and forth over many, many reviews. The bottom line after about 5 hours of break in time these sound better then anything I listen to in their price range. POlus they do not need an amp to drive them, if you are looking for headphones under $200.00 these are the ones.
Summary: I was looking for a new set of headphones to use with my tubed headphone amp and I found some glowing reviews of these headphones in some forums. I have to say I think these are the best closed headphones I have heard. The frequency response is very good all the way from the bass to the highs. In addition, they are very comfortable, though like any closed style they do get a bit warm after a while. I construction is also of the upmost quality.
Summary: These headphones are 100% amazing. After you burn them in (just use them for a couple of days), they *really* open up with the sound. Even at first the powerful sound from these is just jaw-dropping. The sound is absolutely crisp and clear. When that deep bass hits, it literally makes me feel like there is an earth quake, yet people beside me can't hear a thing. They are wonderfully comfortable with soft padding and after many hours of use, my ears don't hurt at all.
Summary: It is somewhat unfair to compare these to the Sennheiser HD 650's on the basis of fidelity. It is also unfair to compare them on the basis of price. But subjectively, if I were to compare them on the fidelity/price ratio, the ATH-M50 wins outright. I was comparing these two with my friend, listening to "Home at Last" - Steely Dan. I have to say that the Sennheiser's had a richer sound, you can hear the actual sounds of opening and closing valves on the brass.
