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.
