M50x a good upgrade to the solid M50 headphones

I've been using a pair of the regular Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones for a few years now and have been very happy with their sonic response. They sound great and are not fatiguing to listen to for hours at a time which is crucial for musicians who need to practice or record using headphones. However I wear glasses and found that over time it would get quite uncomfortable to have the headphones pressing my glasses against my head for long periods.

Thankfully the new M50x headphones have vastly improved ear pads. They are much softer and I now am able to wear my glasses and these headphones for long periods of time in comfort. The overall construction of the M50x also appears to be slightly improved, and the new detachable cable is a great idea. Sonically they appear to sound the same or very similar - my other pair has had countless hours of use so I guess these will slightly change over time however they sounded pretty great right out of the box. The only slight negative is that they have used an end connector sleeve that isn't a standard size so that it can lock in to the headphones, meaning that you couldn't easily make a replacement cable without using the proper connector sleeve. The headphones are ideal for using when tracking vocals or acoustic guitars as they are closed back and do not leak a lot of sound.

If you own regular M50s and are happy with the comfort I would probably not worry about buying the M50x headphones unless you need to buy a second pair. However if you were considering purchasing a pair of M50s I'd definitely recommend going straight for the M50x instead. Very nice closed back headphones indeed!

Excellent headphones, just not for wearing for long periods of time

FIrst of all I'd just like to say how much I love the audio quality of these headphones, you can easily define and pick out the highs, mids and lows.
I was using bass-boosted headphones up until now so obviously there is a lot less bass when it comes to studio headphones.

Pros:
? Amazing audio quality
? Great soundstage considering they're closed-back headphones
? Replaceable cable, which is one of the main reasons why I bought these headphones

Cons:
? They're not particularly comfy for wearing for long periods of time (upwards of 2 hours), this may just be because I have big ears as other people I know who own these do not have this issue

That's my only criticism of these headphones, if you're looking for low budget headphones with amazing audio quality then you've found them!

This headphones definitely live up to their reviews, solid build, and nice natural flat frequency response, definitely the best i've heard in there price range. Great pair of headphones for a bedroom producer.

Great all rounders!

I listen to a broad range of music. From classical , to pop , techno and all the way thorugh to metal and in between. I have to say these headphones work well in all situations so far. Not a single problem with them in terms of sound quality , everything is very clear and defined. You can pick out instruments very easily while listening through these. Comfot wise they are lovely for a while , after a few hours of continuous wearing I will admit a bit of discomfort sets in from the headband but it's not overly troublsome. Just re-adjust slightly and you are okay again. Quality wise you can tell these are low to low mid range headphones, the construction if all plastic bar the inneer headband but that is fine. I found that inclusion of 3 different cables quite helpful also , one straight short cable for casual listening , a coiled cable with 3/4 inch adapter and a long straight cable both to more than likely be used in studio like environments . All in all worth every penny as they get better with use !

Clarity and punch

Clichéd as it may sound these phones pack a lot of punch whilst giving clarity to a wide range of frequencies. Now, I'm no studio engineer but I do know sound and of all headphones I've used so far these are by far the best.

Good sturdy quality with quite a bit of flexibility as well though folding them together is not without some force. Personally that's not a problem but for quick hiding away you might have a hard time. They might soften up a bit, that remains to be seen. They also look bulkier (they're actually quite slim) and heavier (not super light but still) than they are. If you have a larger head I can imagine that they might clamp on a bit strong but even there they might soften up. I wouldn't know.

Good over-ear fit with barely any leakage from the phones, also due to not having to drive the volume so hard as they fit snugly over the ears which keeps the outside world away.

A neat detail is how the cable locks to the left phone with a little snap. I imagine this might be more handy for the commuter than the engineer but handy it is.
The three cables provided are also of good quality and everything comes with a standard issue leather pouch for safe keeping.

Sound wise I am very satisfied. Maybe not so surprised as these sound exactly as I thought and expected but nevertheless I am very satisfied. I've gone through different styles of metal, electronic music, classical music and the generic pops and rocks. Source sounds require very little eq adjusting but maybe some. Some stuff was a bit on the bass heavy side for me but most was just perfect.

All in all I am very happy with this product. The price is remarcable for what you're getting and I recommend these phones to anyone (especially commuters) interested in a good listening experience. Clichéd as it may sound.
