Colour: Blue
Whilst working away on tour in the US & Canada I started thinking about treating myself to a new pair of headphones ready for returning home to a package containing my new Pono hi-res music player.

Earlier in the year I had purchased a pair on Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones. I have always liked the sound, style & build quality of Sennheiser but having clocked up a lot of listening hours with the Momentums whilst away, I felt the low end on this model was somewhat too warm / fuzzy / unfocused … I hope you get the general idea I’m trying to put over ; )

Many people kept suggesting Grado models for the sound I was hoping to achieve. Now I also love the sound and style of Grados BUT their open back design is a complete non-starter for me! A closed back design with minimal sound leakage (IN & OUT) is essential for me if I am to avoid drive fellow colleagues travelling with me on tour buses crazy or when I want to listen to some jazz at home (“j-a-z-z” being the only four letter word that offends my wife). So, unfortunately, Grado = NoNo.

Towards the end of my trip I headed to The Headphone Bar in Vancouver ready & willing to spend up to around $500 to $600 (£300 to £400), maybe more, for something that offered the WOW! factor.

Being a specialist headphone emporium rather than one covering all aspects of hi-fi, The Headphone Bar have a very impressive array of products; Grado, Beyer Dynamic, Sennheiser, AKG, B&O, etc.

PROS
1. Sound quality. Highs are crisp, but not too bright; mids are well-presented; bass is punchy and tight.
2. Build. They feel solid and ergonomics are great. There is no complex suspending system, so there is nothing to break.
3. Portability. Both cups rotate horizontally at 180° and also fold vertically to make the headphones' dimensions quite small and portable-friendly. The supplied pouch comes in handy.
4. Unlike their predecessors, 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 are sitting), and a medium-length coiled cable (very versatile and my personal favourite). The insert-and-turn locking system secures the cable to the left cup.
5. No sound leakage. These are closed-back headphones, so you can use them in a room, filled with people, or while commuting, without any worries that you might disturb someone.
6. 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 plus the cable, the ATH-M50X feel heavier than similar-sized headphones I have owned. They are almost entirely made of thick rigid plastic.
3. I have watched video reviews, making the argument that the ATH-M50X are not exactly audiophile quality (that is, their response is not as 'flat' and 'neutral', as it should be).

I think these are End Game headphones, pure and simple. That is a bold statement to make but i have owned most of the supposed " high-end" audiophile headphones over the years including £650 Denon's. I spent years getting familiar with them. I thought they where End Game and many online consider them to be so, but they had just one little annoyance; They had a tiny bit of sibilance. Well the ATH-M50XDG's are everything that the Denon's where except without that annoying sibilance! so they are actually more complete...
I read about some people complaining that the bass on these headphones is "bloated" but that is wrong. The bass is full bodied, meaning it goes from the lowest note/octave possible, all the way up to the highest note/octave within the bass frequencies. Previously out of all the "high-end" headphones i've owned/heard only the Denon's could do that.
So to recap: I think these are End Game headphones! They beat every other expensive headphone i've ever heard. Including Denon's, Sennheisers, Beyerdynamics, AKG's plus many more. They all have their faults...but the ATH-M50XDG's don't have any.

My first purchase to Audio Technica Headphones and I'm so happy to get the limited edition. The chocolaty color looks cool. Awesome crisp clear sound quality. Really the price, it's worth it ...

After years of being too mean to buy a decent set of headphones I finally decided to take the plunge.
So I did weeks of research and read every review of virtually every headphone available on Amazon I decided that these were the one to go for.
Well here we are two weeks into the purchase and here are my thoughts-
Sound - absolutely amazing. clear, concise, good bass and I can actually hear instruments that I didn't know were there before.
Comfort - starts of fine but over time my ears begin to get hot and sweaty so I have to take them off, take a break then start again.
Alternative - well I also bought, just in case, a pair of Grado on the ear headphones which again sound fantastic but they do leak sound which annoys my wife. They are however much more comfortable and the sound is a little more 'open'
Conclusion - I love them both. I think I prefer the sound of the M50's but that could just be because the enclosed headphones isolate you form the surroundings and you can totally immerse yourself whereas with the Grado's you can hear external sounds which sometimes intrudes.
Result - I couldn't decide which one to keep so I ended up keeping them both so I am covered for all situations, if I had to keep just one I guess it would be the M50's even tho' my ears do get 'sticky' after an hour or so - a small price to pay for the wonderful sound.
