      Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones:

      If you're looking for great studio or audio headphones then the M50's are the absolute way to go. I haven't found a pair that are this comfortable to wear! I always thought I had to spend tons of money for some over ears that not only were a joy to wear but also had the clarity to really section off every instrument track until I tried the M50's. These things are amazing!

        Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones:

        The bar for great sounding headphones continues to be raised. As the end user, we are expecting to hear more defined characteristics in our sound. The defined highs and lows are what have set most manufactures apart. The fact that the transducer is so close to your ear and there is not much room for the sound to move, makes this s test every single time there are new cans introduced. I have been heavily into audio for over 10 years and I am constantly listening to new devices in order to get a feel for what sound is produced. These cans are my favorite ones on the market right now. I feel they accurately represent my sound and they feel great. They are light, fit just right and fold easily for travel. I highly recommend these for anyone that cares about their sound. Give them a try, I dare you.

          The site and my store are sold out of these for a reason; they're AWESOME. Clear sound and good bass respond for under $200 is a pretty good catch in my book. These are a clear quality upgrade from the lower models both in sound and in construction. Great buy!

                          We used these headphones in the studio recently and they really are great! I'm a drummer so I need cans that isolate well and provide plenty of high AND low end. These headphones definitely provided just that. They have a very flat response as well which is great if you want to hear how your music actually sounds. I loved the swivel feature as well as I sometimes like just click in one ear and my other ear exposed.
