Conclusion: Awesome sound for the $***...been listening to various head phone, haven't found one can come close for that price. Used with a headphone amp ... sound even better. (one day burn in with the head amp). Long cord a plus and also great for musical instrument. Nothing to complaint about.
Summary: great buy..sincerely..if u have a doubt..delete it..and just buy one..u gonna love it..Cnet gave a quite odd impression..4 stars?cmon..this deserve 5 stars..!
Pros: absolute great, 1.sound quality is the best in its class and might better than twice the price class., 2. very study, built with aluminium inside the headband, 3. very comfy for me (well it depend on person head), 4. came with nice case which looks pro
Cons: 1.wire is a bit long for mobile usage(still not a big deal at all!), 2.it makes other expensive overrated HP looks rubbish., hardly find one..

Conclusion: Forget about the Beats by Dr.Dre or the Bose QC15. If you want the best sound for a good price, get these. Good lows, mids and highs. Quality materials and looks amazing! ATH-M50 are the best headphones in the 100-500$ range.
