This is my video review from the MKBHD YouTube Channel.

The price/performance ratio is excellent, as with the previous M50s. The removable audio cable is the biggest difference, and the color choices are awesome. Worth checking out, for sure!

Enjoy the video!

A lot of people are wondering what difference these headphones have compared to the ATH-M50 and the simple answer is they went with a don't fix what's not broken approach. The sound quality on these headphones remain unchanged from the old ATH-M50 which has superb quality for headphones in it's price range. What did change however is the removable cable which for some who learned the hard way can break and would require trying to fix them or picking up a whole new set of headphones altogether.

The headphone cushions are also noticeably more comfortable for extended periods of use. As comfortable as the previous model was after extended use I would get this feeling that my head was being suffocated and gripped which would lead to a headache and while I don't think that feeling can ever be removed these headphones do a great job of prolonging that feeling.

For those asking about the cable connection going into the LEFT headphone, it is a snug connection so you won't have to worry about the plug coming out.

All in all if you own a pair of ATH-M50's I wouldn't go rushing out the door to replace them with these unless removable cables are that big of an issue to you but if you don't own the M50s this is definitely the way to go since you won't have to choose between coiled or straight cables when you can have them both.

A real world and practical comparison of Audio Technica ATH-M50 and the new ATH-M50x. This review is for people who haven't owned the old or the new ones and is contemplating a purchase between the two. I am not a DJ or audiophile, so this review is geared towards common folks who just use headphones for listening to music, videos, audio books, movies in a real world setting using phones, tablets, laptops etc (i.e. not professional equipment).

Price -
M50 - look for deals online and you can find a brand new one for under $100 easily (I bought mine brand new for $80) with a deal alert on Slickdeals.
M50x - $169-189. Since they are relatively new there has not been any price reduction or deals yet and won't be for quite sometime.

Sound quality -
Same as M50, i.e. excellent and the best you can get for this money. Tons of reviews covering this so I'm not going into details.

Sound isolation i.e. noise cancellation -
Same as M50, i.e. very good. These aren't active noise cancelling, but its good enough for using in airplane, train, library, public transit or any other quiet environment. A very big plus compared to a lot of headphones that leak sound and renders it useless in such environments or in bed at night.

Build quality -
Speaker components - same
Band - same
Padding - uses a slightly better material, but Audio-Technica won't give out the exact specifications.
Both these are made in Taiwan.

Convenience - (I found this to be a big deal)
Connectors and wires - M50 comes with only 1 attached coiled/straight cable with a 3.5 mm plug and a 1/4" adapter; M50x comes with 3 cables plus its removable.

First of all I would like to say how great amazons service is. I got these headphones about 3 weeks before my estimated delivery date which was a pleasant surprise. The headphones themselves are a beauty. The build quality is fantastic and i love how to cable lock into the headphones so they don't get ripped out. They are extremely comfortable and i have personally worn them for our at a time almost forgetting i was wearing them. The thing is, i couldn't forget i was wearing them because of how amazing they sound compared to every other headphone i have tried at this price range. I got a pair of Beats by Dr. Dre for Christmas and I opted to sell them in order to buy these. I made a good choice. The highs, mids, and bass are evenly distributed and the bass is nice and punchy versus muddy and overbearing. These headphones are great for monitoring, listening to any music, and they look great.

The "too long didn't read" version:

Worth the money. Buy them. They produce clean sound and I find that they're great for the studio or for casual listening.

The longer version:

Just for background sake, I tend to EQ everything I listen to (digitally) so I'm constantly pushing the lows, mids, and highs. I also play the keyboard (Nord Electro 4D and a Yamaha S90ES which I run through a sound mixer) on stage each Sunday. I also enjoy recording casually at home.

With that said, I've worked these headphones through a very wide range of frequencies. As some know, amps are not well suited for keyboards because of the wide range of frequencies that are required of them. For this reason (and for the purpose of reducing the volume level on stage), I went the route of routing my keyboards through a personal sound mixer, sending the main mix to the main sound board and using the Monitor/Aux Send on my mixer to act as my stage monitor. I also route the stage mix to it's own channel thus allowing me to balance the volumes of the main mix with that of my keyboards. Usually, I use a pair of Shures in-ears; but now that I have these, I can hear the full range of my keyboard tones (lows/mids/highs) as well as the full range of the main monitor mix. This has made mixing my sound SO much easier and thus I can more easily identify and EQ my tones. So getting to the point, my organ tones sound great. My piano tones sound great. My clavs sound wonderful. Smooth lows, clean mids, and crisp highs (low or no distortion). I love that I can hear every part much more distinctly. From the shakers to the different pieces in the drum set.

These headphones are great for the price-point. They look good.
