Audio Technica ATH-M50x ( Black)


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.

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.

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.

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...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x


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

in the world.

Consumer review by: Mr. Lewis (

Nice price to performance


First let me say that these headphones are not for anyone who is a hardcore bass head. They are for someone who wants to hear every little detail of an audio mix with clarity and precision. The bass is there, it's just not overpowering everything else...

Highly flexible and durable design ; detachable/ lockable (3) cords ; crisp, clean, solid sound that hits this highs, mids and lows ; Multi faceted for gaming, listening to music, or standard talk ; Collapsible and comes with a carrying bag

None considering my needs compared to what this product offers
