Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

 

Some of the best £100-odd headphones there are

Powerful bass ; Good stereo imaging and separation ; Great value among peers

Bass is somewhat overemphasised ; Isolation could be better

in the world.

Audio Technica ATH-M50x review

 

A great effort from Audio Technica: these are a good pair of portable over-ears

Decent detail Good separation Good sense of life

Sounds a little thick Could do with greater clarity and dynamic punch

If you’re looking for a portable pair of over-ears and you like your sound a little warm, for the money, the Audio Technica ATH-M50x are well worth checking out.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones review: Exemplary over-ear audio

 

If you're looking for a pair of over-ear headphones to wear at home, but don't want to break the bank, and aren't interested in bass-boosted unnatural listening, then the Audio-Technica M50x are a definite contender. Sometimes products exceed...

Accessible price, no compromise neutral audio experience, immediately comfortable to wear, solid build and ample padding

Largely plastic construction, no controller on included cables, not ideal for on-the-go wear, ears get warm after extended use

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...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x review: The best headphones under £150?

 

Fun to listen to, comfortable and robust, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is an audio design classic

Excellent value for money ; Comfortable ; Thumping mid-bass

Recessed mid-range ; Sibilant highs ; Closed soundstage

If you prefer a slightly pepped up sound to the flatter, more accurate reproduction of the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x they might well suit you better. It's also worth considering the Sony MDR-1A and Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 that are both better suited for...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT review: Even better without wires

 

With excellent sound quality and 40-hour battery life, the ATH-M50xBT are the Bluetooth headphones M50x fans have been waiting for

Comfortable ; Excellent sound quality ; Great passive isolation ; Superb battery life

No ANC

If you love the way the ATH-M50x sound but want the convenience of being untethered from your laptop or phone these are the headphones for you. Heck, I think they even sound better than the originals.

Review: Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

 

The new ATH-M50x has the same sound as the previous version, but with a few added features.

Fantastic sound. Made for music production, but also great for critical listening. If you're seated and working, they're comfortable enough to wear all day. New version of these classic cans now features three detachable cables: one long, one short,...

No in-line remote or phone controls on the cables. Even with the new mobile-friendly short cable, the big and bulky over-the-ear design isn't entirely mobile-friendly. They fold, but not much, so they're tough to travel with. Probably too heavy for...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x HEADPHONES

 

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x are great sounding closed-back headphones for critical listening. They have an exceptional reproduction of the bass, mid, and treble range and they feel sturdy and durable enough to last you a while. However, their studio...

Excellent, balanced audio reproduction. ; Sturdy and comfortable build.

Slightly leaky. ; Poor noise isolation. ; No buttons or audio control options.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x: Stellar sequel to one of our favorite pairs of headphones (review)

 

They cost a bit more than the previous model and still don't have a cable with controller and microphone, but ​the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are among the best-sounding you'll find for less than $200.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones offer excellent build quality and very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. They're also very comfortable and have slightly more cushiony earcups along with a detachable-cord...

There's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls and the bulkier design makes them less suitable for mobile use.

Quibbles aside, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are a modestly improved version of the already spectacular model they're based on, and among the best-sounding pairs you'll find for less than $200.

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Headphones Review

 

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

Simply put, these are fantastic headphones and they're everything we want in a moderately priced pair of over-ear headphones. Yes, these are a virtual carbon copy of the beloved ATH-M50, but the changes that Audio-Technica did make are smart updates to...

The ATH-M50X By Audio Technica

 

Audio Technica have been rolling out the “X” series for around a year or so which basically means old classics have been given a bit of a face lift and some tuning to keep them relevant in the face of some pretty stiff competition.

I would recommend these cans based on how they compare with other closed headphones I have tried in their price range. They are among the best closed headphones I have heard for the price and if I wanted cans with good bass and clear highs, these are...
