                  Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones:

                  In this price range it really doesn't get much better than the ATH-M50. The overall sound quality is incredibly accurate, and the build quality shows why audio technical is thriving at what they do. The frequency response is fairly flat with great bass response as well. Comes with 3 different detachable cables and a carry pouch as well. These will excel in both a studio and live aspect.

                    The ATH-M50x headphones are, simply put, an amazing value all around. They are incredibly comfortable, making long studio sessions a breeze to get through. The sound is very clear and balanced, giving an accurate representation of your mix every time. And with the great fit, they give enough isolation to block out the vast majority of outside noises. If you are on the go with them, they fold up very nicely, and the variety of included detachable cables make them suited for any application you may have, from a home or professional studio, DJing, radio work, or even just listening to your favorite songs on your mp3 player.

                      These headphones sound great. Very flat with a good bottom end. The detachable cable is a great aditiong because we all know what rolling chairs in the studio do to headphone cables. I'd recomend these to anyone looking for a good set of studio cans.

                        The M-50's are quickly becoming a staple for studios everywhere. With great flat response and a range of 15-28k Hz they are an excellent referencing tool for any studio. They perform way beyond their price range.

                          These ATH M50's I must say, are the best things to happen to the audio world for the price range they're offered in. There supremely accurate, comfortable and come with 3 different cables, as well as a 1/8 to 1/4 adapter, which was perfect. Tight bass, crisp highs and solid mids. I will probably never buy any other brand of headphones again.
