Excerpt: No complaints. They sound way better than any other pair I've owned. They feel pretty durable, and they're not as douchy looking as many headphones I've seen. I really like the interchangeable cables. For me the coiled one is just right. They do get a little uncomfortable after a few hours.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
Beautiful design, amazing sound—what more could I want?

Excerpt: OVERVIEW/SOUND QUALITY I purchased these headphones primarily for film/video post production, but plan to listen to music at home/at school/on-the-go with these sleek "cups," as audio experts put it. I am no audio expert.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: I do a lot of audio editing creating sound effects and theater sound cues. When traveling or when I can't otherwise use my studio speakers, I need something that doesn't color the sound. For, me the AT-M50s have long been my choise. They work for me.
Pros: Clean Uncolored Sound, Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound
Excerpt: first of all, this is not a noise cancellation headphone. If you are looking for NC, go to Bose. However let's face this, under$, you could get a headphone quality is way better than beats or the main stream brands in the market, you better know where you put your money.
Summary: After buying Beats headphones for both of my kids I decided it was time for dad to upgrade from cheap earbuds. I researched for weeks and read countless user and critic reviews. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased Audio Technica ATH-M50X (Special Edition Blue).
Pros: Incredible sound, comfortable, look great (special edition blue), price
Summary: I was shopping for nearly a year before I finally settled on these headphones. I was looking for something that had a good balance and sounds great for the type of music I listen to (hard rock and heavy metal). These headphones do not disappoint.
Pros: Great sound Durable Options for cord length Easy to fold and store Price
Cons: The case is a little flimsy (just a leather bag - would have liked a hard shell case) Headphones do feel warm after a couple of hours usage Not exactly stylish and do have a little 80s throwback to them; however, for what I need them for, style is not a strong factor in my purchase
Summary: The ATH-M50x are nice headphones, but I didn't enjoy the sound quality. The bass was boomy and somewhat loose, and the lower mids were recessed. The build quality is solid and I appreciate the variety of cables. Comfort was great - I could wear them for hours.
