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.
No disrespect to Sennheiser, as I do believe they make solid products, however once I put these Audio Technicas on, I immediately noticed a difference to my Senn. HD280 Pro headphones.
Absolutely nothing is lacking, and I'm glad I went with these from recommendations. These headphones make listening to music a treat, whether you're going for a nice soft jazz with a resonating bass, or a heavy punk with perfect clarity to pick out each instrument (as frantic as the play style is).
To put it short: You're not going to be missing out on anything with these.
HOWEVER... This means literally everything, including distortion. I've realised this is largely due to the track you're playing, basically if it's been recorded with distortion (such as very old music that hasn't been remastered, or cleaned up) you may hear that in the background with the same great clarity as everything else.
So one thing I would definitely recommend, with the above in mind, is these are for truly appreciating music, and in that sense it would be wise to use high quality files when using these.
On top of everything they fold neatly, and come with interchangeable cables for various scenarios. They're comfortable to wear, even for running. These are awesome cans for on the go, which is how I enjoy most of my listening. A mic would have been a deal-sealing addition here.
I'm no sound engineer, but I know what I expect in this price range, and the m50x's deliver well.
Alternatives? Had I been shopping for home use at this price range I might have looked at the beyerdynamic 770 pros. On the other hand, if I were buying cans that I wasn't going to take outside, I might up the budget and consider open backs.
Week 2 update: The sound is crystal clear, really great headphones much cheaper than beats as they are not wireless/the slimmest but that is IMO not important as the 2 main factors which are of course sound and comfort. The sound again is amazing, a real eye opener when comparing how your fav songs sound.
!!! Comfort: They are comfortable earphones. However the earpads I found can feel a little tight at times. However this is easily fixed after going with the popular recommendation of getting a set of velour earpads from amazon which make the headset a lot more comfortable to use, no tightness anymore they are really great.
You can also customise the headphones if you want to spend another 15-20 quid there are some pretty cool skins at the moment which i might potentially be looking at when im not so broke :P all in all great purchase one of the best for the money!
