  • Summary: Just as a note I bought my pair in the dark green scheme, because the standard black pair I thought i wanted had run out of stock at the store. In hindsight now I think it looks ace compared to the black ones, which some have complained of looking a bit underwhelming against the more...
  • Pros: Great SQ, comfort, cable selection, lovely bass, decent soundstage, isolation, better than average portability
  • Cons: Bass can get a tad boomy on excessively bassy tracks

  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile or an audio engineer. But I'm a musician and love to hear music. I also have a pair of Harman/Kardon CL, which cost me half of these... For the price I was expecting more tan the H/K.
  • Pros: Great bass (without being too bassy), good treble and mids; Great design and construction
  • Cons: Unforgiveness (low kbps music sounds bad); No that good soundstage

Audio Technica ATH-M50x ( Black)

CNET
22 May 2014
  • Summary: Quibbles aside, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are a modestly improved version of the already spectacular model they're based on, and among the best-sounding pairs you'll find for less than $200.
  • Pros: The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones offer excellent build quality and very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. They're also very comfortable and have slightly more cushiony earcups along with a detachable-cord design (three cords are included).
  • Cons: There's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls and the bulkier design makes them less suitable for mobile use.

  • Summary: You can easily see why these headphones are rated so highly. The sound, the looks, and the build quality all combine to make an awesome package. Oh, and they're under $200 dollars too.
  • Pros: Great looking, Great build quality, Excellent sound, Long cords provided
  • Cons: Cord is proprietary, Soundstage is lacking

  • Summary: Before receiving M50x, I thought my review of this new updated version of a legendary M50 model going to be just a basic short comparison since the main advertised change was a removable cable with everything else remaining the same.
  • Pros: Removable cable (of course!!!), updated more comfortable earpads, more detailed sound
  • Cons: proprietary connector, wish there would be a cable with in-line mic/remote for smartphones

  • Excerpt: When we last reviewed the M50 we were knocked out by its performance for just £120. Well, AT has monopolised the M50's lead in the shape of a brand new M50x, and added the M40x and M30x for those who need quality at an even keener price.

  • Summary: Basically an ATH M50 with the long awaited detachable cable. It ships with 3 different cables: 4 foot straight, 4 foot coiled and a 9 foot straight. However, you have to use Audio Technica cables since it has a twist lock mechanism.
  • Pros: Detachable cable, same amazing build quality and sound signature of the original M50 as well as hinges. Fairly cheap
  • Cons: Design

  • Summary: I bought these to replace my Sennheiser HD25-I as they were quite uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time. Whilst these are incredibly comfortable, the sound isn't something I'm used to. The highs are quite tinny no matter the genre.
  • Pros: Comfortable, detachable cable, short cable will fit most phones with cases, good lows and crisp mids
  • Cons: Tinny, no premium feel

  • Summary: I was looking for closed headphones with a pricetag up to €200 that could be used without an amp. After some research and listening sessions I bought the M50x. There's really not a lot to say about these headphones. They are the new version of the well known M50/M50s with a few improvements.
  • Pros: Comfortable, detachable cable, slightly improved soundstage, tighter bass
  • Cons: Only cables from Audio-Technica fit, Ears can get a little warm
