ATH-M50 X BB Limited Edition Blue/ : Amazing rival to the Sennhsier HD598s, strongly recommend

I was so impressed with these headphones that i bought another pair the day i received these. There is not much more i can say that other reviews haven’t. Nice clear sound, with good bass while still keeping clarity. You can keep these on all day no issue, i would recommend looking at extra ear cups as they make the comfort even better. The headband is very comfy and offers great support. The ear cups are deep enough so the inside will never touch your ears. I have had these headphones for some time now and have had no issues, the band is flexible and the swivel mounts on the ear cups are well constructed. I have travelled with these multiple times and beaten them up a few times and cannot complain or report any damage. The headphones come with 3 choices of cable and a travel bag and i can not complain about any of these. Overall i cannot complain about these. As stated i was so impressed with these i bought another pair for my girlfriend the next day.

Enjoyed the music quality throughout my time using it. 40 hours battery was pretty much accurate, i was able to achieve around 38 hours which surpasses the likes of bose massively and also sony. Wired and wireless whilst listening to music was indistinguishable which really impressed me the most. 0 for fast pairing and great consistent connectivity and was able to leave my phone upstairs and travel outside with music still playing. If i had to give two improvements to these headphones, it would be including usb-c for charging (it’s 2018 now cmon) and also, the headband could be ever so slightly thicker with its padding and so i could wear it for hours without any fatigue around my head.

Got addicted from day one, don’t want to take them off now sound good build quality on point great case and compact size/flexibility of the headset. A little bulky to wear outside but then again those are not earphonesweek 2 update: the sound is crystal clear, really great headphones much cheaper than beats as they are not wireless/the slimmest but that is imo not important as the 2 main factors which are of course sound and comfort. The sound again is amazing, a real eye opener when comparing how your fav songs sound. Comfort: they are comfortable earphones. However the earpads i found can feel a little tight at times. However this is easily fixed after going with the popular recommendation of getting a set of velour earpads from amazon which make the headset a lot more comfortable to use, no tightness anymore they are really great. You can also customise the headphones if you want to spend another 15-20 quid there are some pretty cool skins at the moment which i might potentially be looking at when im not so broke :p all in all great purchase one of the best for the money.

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.

Had these for about three weeks now, listening mainly to 320kbps tracks on google music on a nexus 5x phone. I can totally see why people like these, the signature on these is very pleasant, sounding well with all musical genres. You can tell there’s monitor heratige, but they’ve been slightly tuned for more modern tastes. Sound is clean, clear, confident and enjoyable, and at 32 ohms they’re dead easy to drive. Any tracks i know of that were problematic with other cans or earbudes that i’ve owned, are all handled effortlessly by the m50x’s. On top of everything they fold neatly, and come with interchangeable cables for various scenarios. They’re comfortable to wear, even for running. These are awesome cans for on the go, which is how i enjoy most of my listening. A mic would have been a deal-sealing addition here. I’m no sound engineer, but i know what i expect in this price range, and the m50x’s deliver well.

These headphones were ordered to replace a rather aged pair of sennheisers. No disrespect to sennheiser, as i do believe they make solid products, however once i put these audio technicas on, i immediately noticed a difference to my senn. Absolutely nothing is lacking, and i’m glad i went with these from recommendations. These headphones make listening to music a treat, whether you’re going for a nice soft jazz with a resonating bass, or a heavy punk with perfect clarity to pick out each instrument (as frantic as the play style is). To put it short: you’re not going to be missing out on anything with these. This means literally everything, including distortion. I’ve realised this is largely due to the track you’re playing, basically if it’s been recorded with distortion (such as very old music that hasn’t been remastered, or cleaned up) you may hear that in the background with the same great clarity as everything else. So one thing i would definitely recommend, with the above in mind, is these are for truly appreciating music, and in that sense it would be wise to use high quality files when using these.

Rivals the sennheiser hd598s and is incredible for every-day use. I previously owned the ath-m30x and loved them with the downside of the cable being attached and being way too long. I thought these would be the same but just with the cable being detachable. Boy was i wrongthese offer amazing sound quality, a very clear step-up from the m30x. The leather feels amazing on my ears and after over a year of daily use they have not failed me oncei’ve used these in pouring rain, and dropped them on multiple occasions, never have i had an issue. These are incredible headphones and i strongly recommend them. They work very well with bass, are easy for new phones to drive so an amp isn’t even needed. The best feature in my opinion is that they are fully sound-proof. On full volume whilst wearing them, no one around me can hear the music, and i definitely cannot hear them. Pros:- amazing bass quality- good quality leather/comfort- sturdy- detachable cable (includes 3 cables)- sound-proofcons:- not as crisp as the sennheiser hd598s.

These are without question the finest sound quality headphones i’ve ever heard. I am an amateur musician who composes, performs, records using apple’s logic pro x and am a long term fan/user of bose headphones. Until recently i had been using my bose soundlink bluetooth phones with logic. However wireless phones are incompatible with the recording process due to the latency issue, so i was using them ‘wired’ with bose’s incredibly short emergency cable. So i decided to look for dedicated studio quality headphones. Don’t get me wrong, the soundink phones are superb and highly recommended for general listening. But as i searched for producer quality phones one make/model stood out – audio technica m50x. From the moment i first put the m50x on and listened to one of my projects i was astonished by the sound quality. There is a c clear, crisp distinctive between all of the instruments, which all sound ‘pure’ (ie as they actually sound). The frequency coverage is also impressive, from deepest sub-bass to the highest piercing synth.

Having tried the original m50x, i can say that this pair delivers about the same audio quality (bt can introduce minor quality loss, but that depends on your device). Good:* audio quality is good, as expected from a mid-range pair. If you’ve had the original m50x, expect the same good quality. * detachable cable lets me use it indefinitely with my laptop, and without wires on my commute* battery life is great, i haven’t had it die on me and i only charge it in short bursts when i’m not using it* passive isolation is enough to reduce outside noise to manageable levels* fold-able designbad:* they sit on your head a bit too tight, the headband is stiff* as expected from the pads, it can get warm and sweat cannot really escape* buttons are a bit annoying to use (hold-to-skip takes too long) and the touch button is limited to siri/google/whatever (it would be nice to be able to change functionalitymeh:* cable provided is short* cannot use bt while charging.
