Color Name: BlackSize Name: ATH-M50X
First off, I've never been an audiophile. Although I love music, and I listen to it a lot, I had been okay with Apple EarPods for the past year or two--until I decided to get something really great.

Clearly, the choice was between the M50 or the M50x. Although everything points to the fact that the sound's pretty much the same, there are some features that you might want to pay the extra money for. The removable cable is actually really useful--having a super long cable would've definitely subdued my overall experience. Things like that. If you're considering the M50 because you're super tight on money, then don't sweat it: you're not missing too much. You're still getting the car, although maybe not the latest model's new features.

Another note: I found the headphones terribly uncomfortable at first. I think stretching's a must, and there are many threads on Head-Fi Forums about doing so. It can make the world of difference in whether you enjoy the headphones or not.

So finally, on the sound: at first I was definitely underwhelmed. There had been so much hype about these headphones (and the whole audiophile experience) that I expected to be blown away. I'm sad to report that I wasn't. Having recessed mids really caught me off-guard, and it took me a bit to get used to the headphone's sound signature. I could hear that the headphones were definitely good quality, but I just wasn't convinced. I've been listening with them for about a month now, and although I enjoyed my headphones (having gotten used to the sound signature), I still wasn't convinced.

So I compared them to some regular headphones.

And trust me, I have never looked back. The regular headphones had no differentiation in sound signature, and everything sounded clumped together.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: ATH-M50X
Length: 8:58 Mins
These are an outstanding set of monitor headphones. I like the fact that they have great audio quality but for me the comfort is just as important. They are a large set of headphones but they only weigh in at 10 ounces. They are made of plastic but they do have a steel curved inner headband slide. They are ruggedly designed and made and they are highly adjustable. They fold up for easy storage or for taking with you on a trip. The ear cups turn and you can move them enough to listen to one earphone without even having them on your head. You can also extend the ear cups to fit even a large sized head like mine.

They are extremely comfortable. The head band is nicely padded and the ear cups are large and well-padded also. My entire ear fit into the ear cups and the padding rested on the sides of my head. It made wearing the headphones for hours very comfortable. Each of the cables that come with the headphones has a special plug design that allows the plugs to lock into the headphones so it is not easily pulled out by accident. The heavy padding on the ear cups also acts as a passive noise reduction system to keep outside noises from interfering with your music enjoyment. The left and right ear cups are clearly marked and it is easy to see which way to wear the headphones.

The sound quality from the headphones is very good. The bass is just a little flatter than some headphones but that is to be expected from monitor quality headphones where the music is reproduced as recorded without any boosting of the bass. If you are looking for a deeper bass sound don't worry as the headphones come with all of the accessories that you need to adjust the sound quality any way you want.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: ATH-M50X Verified Purchase
These headphones are music to my ears. Literally and figuratively.
I read reviews and pro-tips for months before deciding on the purchase. I am not disappointed. More so, I am immensely impressed.
I have owned countless skullcandy and sony headphones. These blow any of those so far out of the water. Sooo far.
The sound is well rounded and it seems incredibly true to the waveform.
As it states in every other review, the build quality is, what I call, Deutsche-Standard. Absolutely impeccable.

They're very comfy. The aesthetics are jaw dropping. The three detachable cables are clearly the result of a company doing what it can to impress their customer and successfully evolve an already magnificent product.

The fiio amp is also an added bonus. I don't need it, but most definitely appreciate the gesture. Great opportunity for a re-gift!

Butterflyphoto also include a microfiber cloth in the package. What a deal!
Extremely impressive headphones, a gift for a friend(fiio amp), and a microfiber cloth; all for half the price of some shoddy Beats Pro headgear.
I went to beatbuy, I put them on my head. Listened. Saw the price tag and lol'd so hard.

I'm not an audiophile, I'm just a guy who likes listening to things clearly and these headphones absolutely do the job. I was skeptical at first because Amazon was selling the headphones with the amp at the same price as the normal headphone price, but these are authentic. I've looked at a lot of the YouTube reviews for the ATH-M50X before buying these and they were all correct. I was going to buy some Audio-Technica high-fidelity headphones for gaming too, but after doing Dolby sound tests with these, I don't think I'll need to anymore. You can actually hear each note from every instrument clearly, it's pretty awesome. All the sounds coming through these sound like it's actually around you. I don't write reviews, but these deserved it. I haven't used the amp yet either.
