Audio-Technica ATH-M50

 

The ATH-M50s are a middle-of-the-road set of over-ears that offer comfort, decent sound quality and a fairly rugged exterior for a price that won't break the bank. While they aren't going to compete with the high-end studio headphones reviewed in the...

Not a bad set of over-ears.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S Headphone Review

 

Overall, the Audio-Technica M50s headphones represent a very good value for what they offer - an accurate, if lively, presentation of music.

Good isolation ; Linear bass response

Tight fit

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S Studio Headphones Review

 

If your top priority for buying headphones is to improve your single player gaming immersion and/or your multiplayer gaming experience, we do not feel the M50S have much to offer you. The Audio-Technica ATH-M50S Studio Headphones simply do not have the...

As if I haven't been saying this all along, if you're thinking about getting a set of the ATH-M50, do it. Just look at Amazon's user reviews ; everyone loves these.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50

 

Great set of cans for the price, Audio-Technica's ATH-M50s are a classic.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50s aren't a bad set of over-ears, although they aren't studio or monitor headphones by any stretch of the imagination (as their branding claims). Still, if you're using these at home or at a show, you shouldn't be disappointed...

Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones

 

When it comes to high-quality headphones here in India, we're limited to a few select brands. Users have to try and get high-quality products from the US and European markets. Fortunately, the good people over at Pristine Audio have managed to bring in...

The Audio Technica ATH-M50 are without a doubt, a good pair of headphones for music enthusiasts. The headphones are priced at Rs. 8,500 (market price of Rs. 7,500), which makes them a little expensive but considering the few options freely available in...

Detailed sound ; Well defined mid-range ; Smooth bass

More suitable for home use than portable

Audio Technica ATH-M50

 

Most headphones and earphones are designed with some kind of bias to their sound profile. Usually heavy bass, for rockin' tunes. Studio monitor headphones, on the other hand, are careful to reproduce an audio signal exactly as it is supplied by the...

Precise audio reproduction, Solid construction

Can get hot and uncomfortable
