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!
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.
The ATH-M50x headphones are perhaps the best of breed under $200. Reproduction is extremely pleasant across the audio spectrum, with good imaging, full natural dynamic range, and no audible distortion. For genres where the music has been recorded and balanced well, to my ears the M50x has the same sparkle, clarity and tight bass one might experience in a front row seat at an intimate live venue with excellent acoustics.
The M50x headphones are absolutely stunning when used with an audiophile quality headphone amp/DAC playing high definition FLAC (192/24) from audiophile music sites (like HDTracks); or to listen to CDs played on an audiophile quality CD player (like a Marantz CD6005). With sources like that the M50x headphones approach audiophile headphone quality at a fraction of the cost of audiophile grade headphones. That same degree of audio quality transfers well to consumer use of FLAC, WAV, WMA, 320bit MP3 files and CDs played on reasonably priced consumer grade headphone amp/DACs, home stereo systems, and smartphones.
The ATH-M50x signature makes it an excellent tool for some (but not all) professional monitoring applications, and is also very good for home listening enjoyment.
The ATH-M50x also works very well with my Samsung Galaxy S4's volume set just below mid-level. Even taking into account the slight loss due to using WMA files on the Samsung, the reproduction is very good with sound set to "Classic".
Why only 3 stars? The very low bass between 50Hz and 40Hz (the 6 lowest notes on an electric bass guitar) and lower can be problematic with some music. Read on for the details.

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.Read more ›
