    5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth.
    By Donovan on December 29, 2016
    I have owned these headphones for 6 months. I'm semi-audiophiliac. They've generally been my go to for listening to music. I'm only writing this review because I unlocked the truth i'd been missing out on for 6 months. That's my resume.

    Here are my thoughts on why you should choose these over budget or more expensive headphones. ( & yes, you should, but read on.)

    These are great no matter what you plug them into. I'll give them that. You will be generally impressed if you plug them into your iphone, android, mac, etc.. They're pretty darned good. The volume is perfect, the highs are there but tame enough while keeping truth. You won't blow your eardrum tweeter, but the highs are definitely there and serviceable to truthiness of the treble band. The bass is true bass. It's not overly exaggerated; these WILL NOT give you an ear massage, it will however give you pretty close to exact bass. That's actually a fantastic thing, learning to appreciate bass rather than it treating your ears as a trampoline is definitely an enlightenment.

    I mainly use these with Spotify for my music diet. I'm a premium subscriber which gives me the rights to their high quality streams. These WILL expose bad recordings. Certain punk rock will not sound good as high quality electronic or high end produced modern pop. The ATH-M50x's keep the recording quality obvious, but I would go on to say that they're pretty forgiving at the same time. If you picked up a pair of AT's higher priced cans, you'd probably expose even more, and is that worth it? Ehhhh it's up to you, but these are the sweet spot for the price if you're really looking to find flaws in recording, ya geek.

    The biggest take away for these cans is this: while plugging them into anything will get you great audio, what they're plugged into matters.
    They will expose the the truth of the audio output of the device they're plugged into. An Iphone won't sound as good as plugged into a macbook pro which won't sound as good as a pc with a good sound card. I'd been running these on my dell monitors headphone jack, which runs into an nvidia 980ti GPU, which serves up audio through the mentioned audio jack. It was okay. Today I pulled out the long 3.5mm male to 2.5mm male (the connection on the ATH-M50's is 2.5mm fyi) that came with these and decided to plug these into my gaming pc that has a decent realtek soundcard...

    Oh my lord panty dropping audio blissfulness, the gods have spoken, how the hell did I miss this, hot damn.
    It awoke the beast. I cannot say more until you try these in a preamp (coworkers recommended) or something that pumps out decent audio.

    These are a catalyst, you just need the correct crucible to handle it. You pair these babies with the correct output mechanism, and it will be one of the best 100$ range headphones you'll have ever have bought. Sky's the limit, just feed them correctly.

    Since owning these, I've bought other Audio-Technica audio and recording devices. Have a set of their ATH-CKS55XBT blue tooth headphones : [[ASIN:B00OTG8ZLC Audio-Technica SOLID BASS Bluetooth wireless stereo headset ATH-CKS55XBT]]
    As well as the AT2020 usb microphone:
    [[ASIN:B00B5ZX9FM Audio-Technica AT2020USB PLUS Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone]]

    It helps to live 3 miles from their main headquarters and warehouse, but my first venture with AT were these headphones bought from Amazon, and I haven't looked back. These can's established brand loyalty in me to AT. They are The Truth.

    5.0 out of 5 stars TECHNICAlly the Best Headphones at this Price Range!
    By Manuel F. Aguinaga on July 1, 2017
    Okay. If you're a audiophile like me, but do not have the money to spend ludicrous amounts of it for headphones... These are the headphones for you. BUT, with that being said, do not think the price compromises the quality of these headphones. The clarity of these headphones is perfect for mixing music or just relaxing at home jamming.
    I read plenty of reviews before purchasing these and I read that they were lacking presence in the low end, but I have to disagree. If you truly enjoy music in it's entirety (highs, mids, and lows) these will give you that and won't drown everything else with head thumping bass. The lows are there and it does offer some good thumping, but just not over exaggerated like Beats. Honestly, these headphones are like having studio monitors on your ears so if that doesn't say anything than I don't know what will. Just trust me and the thousands of other reviews on here. Check out already. Happy Amazon shopping!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Value
    Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 5, 2018
    I was looking to replace a set of Senheiser headphones I'd had for quite some years. The headphones had really seen better days as they are my "day to day" set that get used on anything from a laptop, mobile phone or even my Hi-fi or Sony Hi-Res Audio Player. I own a series of Beyer Dynamic headphones that are souley for studio use. Their impedance are quite high and in order for me to get the best from them I would have to get an additional headphone amp to carry about with me. For me that kind of defeats the object of what I need for my "everyday cans".
    As I am sure you have all noticed, it can be a bit of a mine field on here, well anywhere in fact when buying things and I include headphones. I am not into "blutooth" stuff, for me they affect the original source too much. I can't bare the whole "Beats" range or Bose. They really do sound like toilet ( putting it bluntly and politely). Once you have taken these types out of the equasion, you either have cheap unknown brands or you have to step up into the real "Audiophile" area which can come at a huge premium and sometimes even then, you don't get the full benefit as they require an external amp to power the high impedance.
    I had a shortlist of brands from Grado, Senheiser and Klipische to Sony, B&W, Beyer Dynamic and of course, Audio Technica.
    I used a mixture of youtube reviews, customer reviews here and my own brand experience and audio knowledge. I was very close to getting a set of Grados, but I really want closed back designs as I may want to use them in either a broadcast situation or also in publice. There is nothing worse than being "THAT Person" with heaven knows what bleeding out of their earphones, intruding on other people's space when not only can you not make out what it is, but even if you could, you don't wanna hear it "second hand". So with that all in mind, I went for these ATH-M50x headphones.
    I listen to a vast array of genres and styles, plus of course whatever a multimedia feed on a mobile device or laptop web browser my throw my way and I am intending to challenge them.
    There are differing views on whether to "burn in" headphones or not. Now for me it depends. If they are a cheap brand or a "fashion brand" like beats or bose, I really would worry, but knowing Audio-Technica products as I do, their products really do benefit from a "run in" time. I am using a "self made" pink noise track. an hour long on loop (repeat) at 96khz, 24 bit. If you are wondering, which "colour" noise to use, for test and run in purposes always use pink noise. White noise has a slightly boosted top and mid, while the Brownian noise (not to be confused with the brown note haha) has a boosted lower end. The idea is to have an equal balanced frequancy range (which is what pink noise is) and let that play for...well however long you feel. THe usual time is about 8hrs upwards. Of course you can play music through them for that period constantly, but again, I want to burn in all parts equally so I use pink noise.
    So, anyway, back on topic, I have been burning these in for 8hrs and I am now listening to them while writing this "review".
    You really have to go a long way to beat the quality in both build and sonic performance of these headphones in their price range. These really do resemble a flat response headphone. What you hear is your playback device and audio file quality. Comparing the same track (bit rate and depth) with these headphones on my Lenovo Laptop verses my Sony NWZ-A10 High Res Audio player has never been so different. Via my laptop's internal soundcard the sound was "ok" nothing to write home about and they sound like I would expect from a £60 set of headphones. Putting them on a decent source such as the Sony....wow! Whole new dimension! Theres plenty of punch, warmth and depth, together with detail galore. Every frequency has "space". At no point do these headphones sound restricted or limited. Mid range is clear and smooth and the highs are very pleasent indeed. They are not "biting" and "shrill" at all. This kind of sound means that long periods of listening won't be fatiguing at all. I then took it them to try a 96khz at 24bit audio file. There is so much "space" in the audio. vocals are very clean and central, acoustic bass drums are heavenly. Lots of punch and depth, yet leave room so you can hear the resonant skin too. There is great channel speration. I find it very easy to "place" things in a mix with these on. Using a reference such as Doug Macleod's Exactly Like This album. It is a very natural sounding, open, listening experience.
    The build of these hedphones has been carefully thought through. The head band is very flexible and will fit pretty mch any head shape with comfort and ease. The actual Earphones themselves will rotate a full 180 degrees each. Again, making them fit ears and heads of all shapes and sizes. The "height" of the earphones adjusts very smoothly and they have a premium feel in general.
    In the box they provide 3 different styles of cable. A short one for mobile devices, a longer version for studio or hifi situations and then a "curly" version of the studio/hi-fi cable. As if that wasn't enought they give you a soft carry case (although I will buy a hard case for mine as I have a habit of throwing stuff in a bag when in a hurry).
    All in all I am over the moon with these headphones. The Senheisers are like muddy plastic boxes in comparisson. These ATH-M50x don't "exagerate" anything to the point of being distracting and "untrue" to the original source, however they will only be as good as the source you use.
    If you listen to "chart" stuff, you will hear the compression and saturation that happens as they try to push stuff to the limit all the time. If you then try something recorded with some actual "air" and dynamics in it, you will hear just what I am talking about.
    If you like well balanced, honest sound, suitable for long periods then this is for you. If you have these in a short list. Wait no longer, just put them in your basket and thank me later.

    Cela fait un an que j'utilise ce casque et j'en suis entièrement satisfait.
    Il est livré avec une pochette de transport, 3 câbles et un adaptateur 6.5 mm que j'utilise pour brancher le casque à mon piano.
    Très bon casque, fidèle et équilibré. Génial avec mes morceaux en FLAC.
    Le confort n'est pas exceptionnel mais il reste agréable à porter.
    Le casque est également très solide, malgré toutes les chutes et toutes les tortures qu'il a enduré, il est toujours intacte.
    Le rapport qualité / prix est vraiment très bon. Je recommande
