  • Summary: There's always one.  Every good thing has a dissenter, and that's me.  The ATH-M50 cannot handle songs with lots of different lower frequencies going on at once because of the artificial bass extension.  For example, Nine Inch Nails' "Heresy" is a very challenging song to play on headphones; it sounds like crap on my car stereo because the subwoofer is confused on which notes to play, so too low of frequencies overpower what should be playing louder.
  • Pros: Nice highs and mids, comfortable
  • Cons: Terribly artificial bass, NOT "monitors" (that's why nobody uses them as monitors), laughable build quality

Don't be fooled by the hype

  • Excerpt: I bought these headphones 1 year ago at B&H. I looked at all the reviews about these headphones and even tested them before buying. First of all, let me say that I made an error while testing headphones. I only listened to 1 album while testing. That method is totally wrong. I should have burned myself a CD with various music I know, and use it through a good player with a good headphone amp. Let's get to the headphones.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good looking, Great pads, High quality jack plug, Lengthy cable, Well-made
  • Cons: Distort sometimes, Poor audio, Unblalanced sound

Toller Klang, aber unkomfortabel

  • Summary: Gibt bestimmt böse Antworten, weil dies die erste schlechte Bewertung ist, aber so ist es eben: Ich habe mir zeitgleich den M50 und den K242HD von AKG gekauft. Klanglich ist der M50 ohne Frage besser, jedoch störte bereits nach wenigen Minuten der Anpressdruck. Nach 25 Minuten wurde es so unerträglich, daß ich ihn abgesetzt habe. Der AKG ist da erheblich angenehmer! Mein Kopfumfang: 59 cm.
