  • Summary: Level: Amateur Mostly Experience: First Personal Pair   We can all agree it's been reviewed too much? Good. My turn please... I'm aware of the reputation these carry, how audio should sound to a newbie, and the relative price point for most people is fairly affordable.
  • Pros: Durable, Long Lasting, Great Beginner Set
  • Cons: Read Review

  • Summary: the sound was really good, but i cannot still anymore for a headphone that's not comfortable and hurt my head, the headband and ear pads was not soft enough and make my ear hot and sweat, and i also don't like the heavy and unremovable cable.
  • Pros: Good sound
  • Cons: uncomfortable, unremovable cable

  • Summary: A headphone originally designed to monitor, Yet has been pushed to audiophile territory as a beginner headphone.   Although recommended, The ATH m50 is actually very boomy in it's presentation and will always be aggressive.
  • Pros: Frequency Response, Detail, Build Qual.
  • Cons: Treble, NO soundstage, Bass is too boomy, Aggressive and unforgiving

  • Summary: I don't like this headphone, I can't tell you otherwise.   I like open back cans because it's generally less-fatiguing for me and spacious. But for the price range, and for being closed-back these REALLY are hard to beat.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Long Cable, Clean balanced sound, Very Warm
  • Cons: Bass (In my opinion) is a bit loose, Recessed mid- section, VERY Flat (But you might like it)

  • Summary: First things first...I was expecting WAY better sound than this after having read over 30 reviews from all over on these phones....I would say the "warm" sound people speak of is the most prominent "feature" the M50's have.
  • Pros: Decent "punch" for certain music/awesome DJ set/VERY COMFY
  • Cons: Muffled sound/ not very "musical"

  • Summary: These cans were decent, back when they were just above 100 bucks. They've inflated to 160 and that's just ridiculous. There is better in this price range. The SRH840's for example on eBay for 120~ bucks new, does everything better than these cans.
  • Pros: Very pretty, does some new genres like indie rock well.
  • Cons: Fatiguing, Uncomfortable, Terrible bang for your buck

Ultimately Disappointed

  • Summary: I spent ages deliberating between various different 'phones and had finally whittled it down to these or the AKG K550 - not having any opportunity to demo either I ended up doing copious analysis of online information and settled for the M50X.

  • Summary: Good quality sound and materials. A bit uncomfortable for my ears. After around 1 hour I start feeling a bit of pain and I have to stop using them for a while.

Great sound! let down by comfort.

  • Summary: Having received and use these headphones, the build quality is very solid and won't break too easily with every day use. Although its looks solid, I think it's too much plasticky compared to most headphones. The sound is awesome but let down by the discomfort after about 2 hours of use.
