Comfortable and robust

The M50x aren’t bad headphones. They’re comfortable and robust, fun to listen to and great value for money. In comparison to its rivals, it's the only set of headphones that combines a versatile design and a fun sound signature.

Exemplary over-ear audio

from Pocket-lint

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 absolutely do.

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 absolutely do.

It's the audio experience that shines through, delivering a loud, clear and natural listen throughout the full frequency range - whatever your preferred musical genre. Irrelevant of the use of plastics, the cushy earcups and padded headband make for a comfortable wear, and for the money we defy you to find better. So long as you're not expecting to be drowned in a wash of bass like some other over-tuned headphones, because that's not what monitoring headphones are about.

The best-sounding headphones under $200 get (slightly) better

from Cnet

At first glance, the new-for-2014 ATH-M50x seems to be that more mobile-oriented headphone. It's almost identical to the ATH-M50 but has improved padding on the earcups and a new detachable-cord design.

Soundwise, the ATH-M50x is hard to fault. The tonal balance is accurate, stereo imaging (for a closed-back design) is spacious, and dynamic impact is excellent. While Audio-Technica claims there's no difference between the sound of the original ATH-M50 and ATH-M50x, we think the new one is clearer with more detailed bass, midrange, and treble....

Although it's a shame Audio-Technica doesn't include a cable with a controller and microphone, that probably won't bother audio purists. You do have to pay more for this newer model, but it still has a lot to offer, with excellent performance and a slightly more comfortable fit to go along with the detachable-cord system and extra cords.
