    Pros: In a side by side comparison. The ATX-M40 sounded clearer and more crisp than Dr.Dre BEATS solo 2. Add the amplifier and the ATX-M40 stole the show.Great fit , not so tight as with the Beats.Could wear them for hours.
    Cons: none

    5 out of 5 stars   ATH-M50X Great Buy
    By Dave P (Vancouver, BC) April 15, 2016
    Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Professional Studio Headphones (Black) (ATHM50XBLACK)
    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I purchased this for $99 special and it's worth every dollar. I had earlier purchased a pair of M40X for my teenage daughter and was amazed at the quality sound it produced. The M50X is way more powerful and sounds very nice on my Marantz receiver compared to my Samsung pad. Like a lot of reviewers the M50X offers a neutral balance sound designed for studio work. If you are able to have equalizer settings, it really makes a big difference. I listen to mostly soft music and light pop music with low bass and this M50X really brings out clarity of vocals.
    Cons: I notice the ear pads are smaller on the M50X compared to M40X. I got big ears so I stuffed some old thin styrofoam packaging material into the ear piece and it works fine for now. I will order a set of new bigger pads later. Also its pretty big headphones so not for walking around outside. Neutral sound not for heavy bass music or screaming hard rock or rap. Ok for movies compared to my 5.1 speakers but hey that's a $2000 comparison. Its not noise cancelling so you do hear background noise but you can turn up volume.
    Other Comments: Can't beat the great price. Tried many headphones including pricey ones and these were incredible headphones.

    Pros: Great dynamic range. Functions well with all my devices including my iPad and iPod. Comes with a wide variety of connection cables. Folds flat to fit the provided protection pouch.
    Cons: The over the year design does block noise but can be a little warm.

    5 out of 5 stars   Great headphones + great price
    By Alex (New York, NY) April 13, 2016
    Review submitted for Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Professional Studio Headphones (Black) (ATHM50XBLACK)
    Verified Purchaser

    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I use these headphones for everyday use with my pc in a 6.3mm jack. They are very comfortable. I hardly notice them even after 3 hours of use. They are able to produce very good quality sound. They are so good that I have to use them with my volume at the lowest possible setting of 2-8 on the pc. The audio sounds amazing. These are studio/professional grade headphones and I was able to purchase them for $99. At that price it's a steal. If you see these on sale don't hesitate to grab a pair, trust me, you will not regret it.
    Cons: I would have liked to have a mic option for these, but that's not really a con since these are designed primarily for studio settings. Besides one may always purchase it separately like the mod mic or a professional grade mic like the Rode NT-USB. Something along those lines would be a great compliment to these high quality audio headphones.
    Other Comments: None.
