PROS
1. Sound quality. Highs are crisp, but not too bright; mids are good; bass is punchy and tight. It is difficult to find *better* sounding headphones in this price segment.
2. Build. They are very solidly built and ergonomics are great. There is no complex suspending system, so there is nothing to break.
3. Very comfortable. These are over the ears (as opposed to on-ears) headphones, so there is no unpleasant pressure. The new ear pads are very soft, and the headband is enveloped in the same soft material.
4. Portability. Both cups rotate horizontally 180°, and they fold vertically, to make the headphone's dimensions quite small and portable-friendly. The supplied pouch comes in handy.
5. Unlike their predecessors, the ATH-M50X arrive with three detachable cables: a long straight one (you can use it to connect to a source that is further away), a short straight one (very handy when connecting to a smartphone, or if your computer is located very near to where you sit), and a medium-length coiled one (for mixed purposes). The insert-and-turn locking system secures the cable to the left cup.
6. No sound leakage. These are closed-back headphones, so you can use them in a room, filled with people, or while commuting, without the need to worry that you might disturb someone.
7. With an impedance of 38 ohms you do not need a headphone amp to drive them.

CONS
1. Cable connectors are proprietary. But then again you get three cables in the box, so it is unlikely that you will be looking to buy new cables any time soon.
2. At 285 g (10 oz) plus the cable, the ATH-M50X are a little heavier than similar-sized headphones I have owned. But making them lighter would most probably affect build quality.
3.

I've had these just three days; so this is based on early impressions.

I've got a collection of cheaper headphones that have all somehow disappointed. So I decided to spend a bit more, knowing that I wanted over-ear phones and comfort being a priority - particularly so that I could manage prolonged wear without discomfort. I use phones at my desk, in other settings and on the move.

These cost £108, being a previously opened-box item from Amazon (Sept 2014). So far I'm pleased with my purchase and think I got good value.

The first impression was that they look quite 'chunky', almost industrial-looking and are not particularly light. When I put them on I find it a little irritating that I can feel the headband across the top of my head but I soon forget about it after a couple of minutes wear. I'm a fairly big bloke - 6ft 2 and I presume that my ears are in proportion to the rest of me. These cups fit over my ears well; which hasn't always been the case with over-ear phones in the past. My ears don't touch the speaker cones.

I wear glasses. The phones inevitably push the arms of my glasses in towards the sides of my head and I suspect that prevents them from being as comfortable as they would otherwise be. But they are pretty good and so far I've had no difficult wearing them for an hour or so at a time.

As other reviewers have said, the sound quality seems very good. So far I have used them for listening to music and video. I also will be using them for video editing, and occasionally plugged into my amp when playing guitar, and plugged into my electronic drum kit. I also normally use headphones on the move so I will try these - using the shorter of the three cables - though they are quite big if you're self-conscious about appearance.

I was considering getting the Beats by DRE as that is the craze, but I quickly found out they are overpriced. I found these and the sound is absolutely fantastic.

I listen to Slipknot and Limp Bizkit and you can just hear extra sounds the artist intended you to hear. There is no enhanced bass and everything is perfectly balanced.

I will use these to mix some of my piano songs with my software.

Now I'm not going to go into the detail of the headphone quality, or any of that. Mainly, because I believe that I could not do the headphones justice with my efforts. There are qualified people you can research for that bit. I'm going to focus on what I believe is truly the point in reviewing it from the customer's side, which is the difference between the M50x's (these) and the M50's (the older model).

The main difference between the 2 is the ability to change the cable used, dependent on the headphone usage. The m50's do not have detachable or changeable cables, they only have one, which I believe is either coiled cable or a 3m cable. Whilst they are monitor/stereo headphones, this is still a hindrance to a large sum of people. Because of the amazing value and brilliance of the M50's (Well done to Audio Technica), these headphones have caught the eye of not only studio-working musicians, or editors/producers, but also of any of the public who enjoy great, natural and realistic sounding headphones at an affordable price (which for a mid-range market, attracts a lot of people). This however meant that using them anywhere else apart from indoors in their own set up was an ongoing war against the lump of coil or 3 metres of cable that came with it, hence either inconveniencing casual wearers for the majority of the time, or restricting them to indoor usage.

When I got the M50's, I ended up using them everyday e.g. going to school, music studies, band practicing. After a few months, I found myself consciously thinking about how bulky the coil cable is. However, the coil cable has got it's uses. And for a musician, those uses were and are very real. The annoying confliction.

The M50x's come with 3 interchangeable cables. a coiled cable, a 3m cable, and a 1.
