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!

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.
