Review: Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

 

The new ATH-M50x has the same sound as the previous version, but with a few added features.

Fantastic sound. Made for music production, but also great for critical listening. If you're seated and working, they're comfortable enough to wear all day. New version of these classic cans now features three detachable cables: one long, one short,...

No in-line remote or phone controls on the cables. Even with the new mobile-friendly short cable, the big and bulky over-the-ear design isn't entirely mobile-friendly. They fold, but not much, so they're tough to travel with. Probably too heavy for...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x review

 

One of the reasons Audio-Technica's ATH-M50 headphones became popular was that they were sort of the anti-Beats. Or, put another way, they were the headphones for "smart" listeners who looked down on people who overpaid and got suckered into the whole...

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones offer excellent build quality and very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. They're also very comfortable and have slightly more cushiony earcups along with a detachable-cord...

There's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls and the bulkier design makes them less suitable for mobile use.

Quibbles aside, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are a modestly improved version of the already spectacular model they're based on, and among the best-sounding pairs you'll find for less than $200.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones Review

 

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

Simply put, these are fantastic headphones and they're everything we want in a moderately priced pair of over-ear headphones. Yes, these are a virtual carbon copy of the beloved ATH-M50, but the changes that Audio-Technica did make are smart updates to...

The ATH-M50X By Audio Technica

 

Audio Technica have been rolling out the “X” series for around a year or so which basically means old classics have been given a bit of a face lift and some tuning to keep them relevant in the face of some pretty stiff competition.

I would recommend these cans based on how they compare with other closed headphones I have tried in their price range. They are among the best closed headphones I have heard for the price and if I wanted cans with good bass and clear highs, these are...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones - Making a Great Product Better

 

The Audio Technica ATH-M50x professional monitors are the updated version of the popular ATH-M50 headphones. We test drive this set to find out if the M50 has a worthy successor.

Comfortable ear-cups for long hours of listening ; Good passive noise cancelling ; Accurate audio performance ; Great value

Needs to be powered by an amp for best performance

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x offers excellent performance for its sub-S$300 price tag. The level of detail the headphones are able to resolve is impressive, and you really can’t fault them for sounding too clinical if the emphasis is on being accurate....

The sound, the looks, and the build quality of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X all combine to make an awesome package. Oh, and they're under $200 dollars too.

Some of the best £100-odd headphones there are

Powerful bass ; Good stereo imaging and separation ; Great value among peers

Bass is somewhat overemphasised ; Isolation could be better

Audio Technica ATH-M50x review

 

A great effort from Audio Technica: these are a good pair of portable over-ears

Decent detail Good separation Good sense of life

Sounds a little thick Could do with greater clarity and dynamic punch

If you’re looking for a portable pair of over-ears and you like your sound a little warm, for the money, the Audio Technica ATH-M50x are well worth checking out.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones review: Exemplary over-ear audio

 

If you're looking for a pair of over-ear headphones to wear at home, but don't want to break the bank, and aren't interested in bass-boosted unnatural listening, then the Audio-Technica M50x are a definite contender. Sometimes products exceed...

Accessible price, no compromise neutral audio experience, immediately comfortable to wear, solid build and ample padding

Largely plastic construction, no controller on included cables, not ideal for on-the-go wear, ears get warm after extended use

Sometimes products exceed expectations, and the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are one such example. At first we didn't think these largely plastic-constructed headphones would achieve their "professional monitor headphones" label, but they...
