4 reviews for Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    WOW these headphones have to be the best I have ever heard. Everything I so clear with these! I’m not a DJ or a producer or anything but I do love music, and I’m really happy with how these sound.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    These headphones are nothing short of AMAZING. I picked these and the Rhythms Blu HD up from this site and I couldnt be happier. I was looking for a everyday headphone and one for producing music and DJing and I deffinitly found what I was looking for in these. They are nice and balanced in my opinion, though they have a really nice low end. Also all the cables and extras they come with are really cool too. I wish there was remote on the shorter cable for calls, but since they are studio headphones, its not that big of a problem for me. If you’re looking for studio headphones, I’d definitely give these a try.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Believe the hype. The ATH-M50x are truly an awesome pair of cans. I am a total audiophile and have played with and owned headphones that cost as much as a used car, but these to me, sound every bit as amazing. I highly suggest these to any musicians, djs or just plain music lovers.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    AUTHENTIC sound! This head phone is one of the best that I have tried. I bought mine at Amazon a year ago and was really impressed. I also bought the M30 model which is also great! It’s worth every penny!
