5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Value
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 5, 2018
I was looking to replace a set of Senheiser headphones I'd had for quite some years. The headphones had really seen better days as they are my "day to day" set that get used on anything from a laptop, mobile phone or even my Hi-fi or Sony Hi-Res Audio Player. I own a series of Beyer Dynamic headphones that are souley for studio use. Their impedance are quite high and in order for me to get the best from them I would have to get an additional headphone amp to carry about with me. For me that kind of defeats the object of what I need for my "everyday cans".
As I am sure you have all noticed, it can be a bit of a mine field on here, well anywhere in fact when buying things and I include headphones. I am not into "blutooth" stuff, for me they affect the original source too much. I can't bare the whole "Beats" range or Bose. They really do sound like toilet ( putting it bluntly and politely). Once you have taken these types out of the equasion, you either have cheap unknown brands or you have to step up into the real "Audiophile" area which can come at a huge premium and sometimes even then, you don't get the full benefit as they require an external amp to power the high impedance.
I had a shortlist of brands from Grado, Senheiser and Klipische to Sony, B&W, Beyer Dynamic and of course, Audio Technica.
I used a mixture of youtube reviews, customer reviews here and my own brand experience and audio knowledge. I was very close to getting a set of Grados, but I really want closed back designs as I may want to use them in either a broadcast situation or also in publice. There is nothing worse than being "THAT Person" with heaven knows what bleeding out of their earphones, intruding on other people's space when not only can you not make out what it is, but even if you could, you don't wanna hear it "second hand". So with that all in mind, I went for these ATH-M50x headphones.
I listen to a vast array of genres and styles, plus of course whatever a multimedia feed on a mobile device or laptop web browser my throw my way and I am intending to challenge them.
There are differing views on whether to "burn in" headphones or not. Now for me it depends. If they are a cheap brand or a "fashion brand" like beats or bose, I really would worry, but knowing Audio-Technica products as I do, their products really do benefit from a "run in" time. I am using a "self made" pink noise track. an hour long on loop (repeat) at 96khz, 24 bit. If you are wondering, which "colour" noise to use, for test and run in purposes always use pink noise. White noise has a slightly boosted top and mid, while the Brownian noise (not to be confused with the brown note haha) has a boosted lower end. The idea is to have an equal balanced frequancy range (which is what pink noise is) and let that play for...well however long you feel. THe usual time is about 8hrs upwards. Of course you can play music through them for that period constantly, but again, I want to burn in all parts equally so I use pink noise.
So, anyway, back on topic, I have been burning these in for 8hrs and I am now listening to them while writing this "review".
You really have to go a long way to beat the quality in both build and sonic performance of these headphones in their price range. These really do resemble a flat response headphone. What you hear is your playback device and audio file quality. Comparing the same track (bit rate and depth) with these headphones on my Lenovo Laptop verses my Sony NWZ-A10 High Res Audio player has never been so different. Via my laptop's internal soundcard the sound was "ok" nothing to write home about and they sound like I would expect from a £60 set of headphones. Putting them on a decent source such as the Sony....wow! Whole new dimension! Theres plenty of punch, warmth and depth, together with detail galore. Every frequency has "space". At no point do these headphones sound restricted or limited. Mid range is clear and smooth and the highs are very pleasent indeed. They are not "biting" and "shrill" at all. This kind of sound means that long periods of listening won't be fatiguing at all. I then took it them to try a 96khz at 24bit audio file. There is so much "space" in the audio. vocals are very clean and central, acoustic bass drums are heavenly. Lots of punch and depth, yet leave room so you can hear the resonant skin too. There is great channel speration. I find it very easy to "place" things in a mix with these on. Using a reference such as Doug Macleod's Exactly Like This album. It is a very natural sounding, open, listening experience.
The build of these hedphones has been carefully thought through. The head band is very flexible and will fit pretty mch any head shape with comfort and ease. The actual Earphones themselves will rotate a full 180 degrees each. Again, making them fit ears and heads of all shapes and sizes. The "height" of the earphones adjusts very smoothly and they have a premium feel in general.
In the box they provide 3 different styles of cable. A short one for mobile devices, a longer version for studio or hifi situations and then a "curly" version of the studio/hi-fi cable. As if that wasn't enought they give you a soft carry case (although I will buy a hard case for mine as I have a habit of throwing stuff in a bag when in a hurry).
All in all I am over the moon with these headphones. The Senheisers are like muddy plastic boxes in comparisson. These ATH-M50x don't "exagerate" anything to the point of being distracting and "untrue" to the original source, however they will only be as good as the source you use.
If you listen to "chart" stuff, you will hear the compression and saturation that happens as they try to push stuff to the limit all the time. If you then try something recorded with some actual "air" and dynamics in it, you will hear just what I am talking about.
If you like well balanced, honest sound, suitable for long periods then this is for you. If you have these in a short list. Wait no longer, just put them in your basket and thank me later.

Cela fait un an que j'utilise ce casque et j'en suis entièrement satisfait.
Il est livré avec une pochette de transport, 3 câbles et un adaptateur 6.5 mm que j'utilise pour brancher le casque à mon piano.
Très bon casque, fidèle et équilibré. Génial avec mes morceaux en FLAC.
Le confort n'est pas exceptionnel mais il reste agréable à porter.
Le casque est également très solide, malgré toutes les chutes et toutes les tortures qu'il a enduré, il est toujours intacte.
Le rapport qualité / prix est vraiment très bon. Je recommande

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time, and you will slowly fall in love.
Reviewed in India on October 27, 2018
Edit : Updating the rating from 4 to 5 stars, after 10 months of usage. As the title says, I totally fell in love with it.
________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This review is for those, who are confused regarding the hype of M50X. I personally did not like the sound signature earlier. But after a lot of tweaking with equalizer and with enabling spatial sound (Dolby Atmos for windows 10), I am slowly falling in love with these headphones. It requires time to get used to the signature of sound if you are hardcore bass lovers.

So here is my full review which I would like to break down by points :

1) SOUND Quality:

BASS 9/10: Excellent production of bass. After increasing bass levels in Equalizer, it just pumps right amount of bass and is very deep and punchy.
MIDS 7 /10: Mids are okay, balanced. Vocals are crisp and bass does not overpower the mids.
HIGHS 5 / 10: Awful. It's very bright. I had to lower down some higher frequencies in order to resolve my headache.

I come from Sennheiser background where I had PX 80, PX 95, CX 175, HD 202, HD 203 and HD598 SR. I also have Sony MDR 550AP. So comparing to those, sound signature of ATH is different. If you directly plug in these headphones without configuring and tweaking equalizer as per your needs, then you would be disappointed, as I was on the first day of listening to these.

I thought, maybe, I should try configuring properly. I googled frequency response and balanced equalizer as per my needs. I have uploaded my EQ settings. So below review is purely depending on my personalized EQ setting.

Now, these headphone sound damn amazing, I could not believe the experience after enabling Dolby Atmos for Headphones (Windows 10 feature). It's brilliant. Even it sounds great on Windows Sonic spatial configuration. Just disable 7.1 virtual surround. Uncheck the box in sound setting. Games and movies sounds epic. High quality audio files have new dimension to it now. Especially A.R Rahman songs (Dil se and Jiya Jale recording in Berkeley University). If you love bass, these will definitely sound better than HD598. But if you love immersion and wider soundstage, no one can beat Sennheiser HD598 under 10k budget.

However sound quality is very subjective, as many people prefer high bass, many prefer higher clarity. These headphones can be "ADJUSTED" according to your needs. Hence I can say, out of the box its not good, but it definitely has that capability to be the best if you give it proper attention.

2) BUILD QUALITY 10/10 : Simply excellent. It feels premium. Very strong. It looks durable, many people have been using these for years. Although not sure about ear cups, as they wear out in one year or so.

3) COMFORT 9/10 (Edited) : When I posted this review, I found it very difficult to wear these for long hours, but after 10 months of usage, the comfort level is far better now. I have used it for watching back to back movies, playing games for 4-6 hours straight without any issue. Although in warm weather, it may get a bit sticky. No issues in air conditioned room.

4) NOISE CANCELLATION 6/10: Not that good. I can hear ambient noise. It reduces up to 50 percent. Best to listen in quiet environment.

5) SOUND LEAK 10/10: Sound does not leak at all. Person sitting next to you will not be disturbed at all, even on high volume.

6) Accessories 10/10 : Good carrying pouch, 3 wires as per different needs.
