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!

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 !

Outstanding

I have nothing to complain about these. I had never spent that much money on a headphone before and I bought these to use with an eletronic drumset (TD-12 brain and drum-tec shells) and they sound amazingly better than my previous one that I had already considered expensive (~80 euros)!

They are very comfortable to wear for long sessions and I use it whenever I can. They also come with different cables and an adaptor from 3.5 (normal headphone plug) to 6.3 (like a guitar plug, for who doesn't know).

Just be aware that the cables that come with it are not exactly standard as the side that goes into the headphone itself has some rubber work to fit securely inside the plug hole of the headphones. That gives some added stability if you are moving around so the plug won't come out but sacrifices the reusability of the cable. But that shouldn't matter, really.

An added plus: they fold very nicely for traveling.

Having done my research, and consulted several studio musicians and sound technicians, I decided that AudioTechnica were likely to be the best value for money in my budget range (<£100).

I visited my local music store to find that they could only supply ATH-M30x headphones. Armed with my Macbook, I tried them out with a variety of >320kbps MP3s, and WAV file recordings taken with either my Yamaha PocketTrak W24 or the Rode app on my iPhone 5s.

I was suitably impressed by the ATH-M30x headphones, so I decided that buying the ATH-M50x was probably a safe bet. I was right.

My first impression of the ATH-M50x headphones was that the bass was present and clear, but never overdone or 'boomy'. The mid- and treble-range tones were crystal clear, as though I were standing among the instruments or vocalists!

The construction is solid (unlike some headphone sets that are in the same price range), and feels well-built.

The earpad comfort is wonderful. I wear glasses, which often leads to discomfort, but so far these headphones have been a joy to wear for prolonged periods of time (i.e. >4 hours).

Three removable cables come in the box with the headphones. The shortest cable has been perfectly fine for all of my usage so far (mixing / listening on Macbook or listening/monitoring/recording on PocketTrak W24 / iPhone).

The headphones fold away neatly, which puts the earpieces together in a protective contact. The carry bag is thick enough to suggest that it will last a good while, but thin enough to be pliable and soft.

Overall, these headphones are fantastic. Unless you're used to headphones priced much higher than these, you're sure to be pleased if you buy them.

Super versatile!

I needed a pair of headphones that can be used for dj applications, mixing, recording and listening music from mobile devices and I can say that these pair can do it all!

Pros: They are very loud when connected to an iPad Air 2 for example keeping their clarity in sound and then connect them in a studio headphone amp and still perform very good. An all in one solution.

Cons: Of course they sound good but not so good like other headphones in this price range like Beyer dt770 pro(250ohms) which on the other hand lacks the versatile of M50X and lacks the high volume in mobile devices. Also it feels plastic thought it is not a serious problem.

An overall good product.
