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.

Style Name: HeadphoneColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
I don’t know what to write. I’m wordless. That’s what happens when you listen to Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean first 30 seconds.

I’m not an audiophile, so I’ll explain my headphones experience path:
1. Buy cheap $5 headphones. Trash them when damaged. Rinse and repeat for many years.
2. My first not-so-cheap headphones were UrbanEars Plattan in Mocca, and while they were miles ahead the cheap ones, it was nothing earth shattering. I lost it at an airport so I bought the same in Black: http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0030IY17C
3. Then I had some extra money to buy goodies. I bought these, and my life changed. I’m telling you, this is one of those occasions in life when you feel it was TOTALLY worth it.

Things I LIKE:
- Sound quality is top notch. Heavens, purgatories, hells, whatever you experts call them, they are all at a perfect, harmonic level. Bass... how come people want MORE bass out of these? With them I can not only discern practically all instruments and notes being played, bass is present and it’s not uncomfortable even at high levels. I can feel it without being overwhelmed. All my praise to the engineers.
- Ergonomics hit the spot. My ears fit INSIDE the earcups, with enough room not to touch them, so they are quite the perfect fit indeed. They are definitely heavier than my previous headphones, but the arc rests on my head so I barely remember I have them on me, and I’ve had them with me the whole week at the office and during my commute, and still no pain. Also, they apply less pressure against my head than previous ones, yet have a firm grip. What’s not to love?
- Oh, the temperature. I live in a place where people complain as if we were all the time between 86 ºF and 94 ºF, while I feel it’s between 79 ºF and 88 ºF.

Style Name: HeadphoneColor Name: Black Verified Purchase
Overview:

Target Market: Audio Professionals.
From ATs professional products web page:
"Professional Studio Headphones: accurate audio and outstanding comfort that gets the job done. Hour after hour, year after year...unmatched combination of audio and build quality, whether in the studio or on the go...".

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 professional and audiophile grade equipment playing high definition FLAC (192/24) from 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 in the M50x 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.
