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

Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Review [Video]


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


Great news! Audio-Technica has recently introduced its revamped line of studio-grade and very much professional over-ear headphones. One of them being a new mid-level flagship successor to one of the more well known and admired headphones in recent...

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.

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

Great product did not get the full package.


Headphones are the best I have ever had or tried and I've tried sets $400 +. I did not get the amp or mic as advertised but the headphones are so awesome I did not bother to complain.

Worth the money


The sound quality is great and the headphones are comfortable enough for you to be able to spend hours on them without discomfort. Night and day difference from earbuds (you can actually hear the bass). Great if you want to tune out the outside world.
