I am completely satisfied, item complies with description.

I've been listening to M50x on all my tracks for half a year. At first it seemed that the headphones were not far from ideal. Soon I began to notice that I didn’t want to listen to them for a long time, and then I didn’t want to listen to them at all. At this point, about a month ago, a friend gave me an HDJ 2022 to replace the ear pads and give it back to him. Well, I decided to compare. At first, the M50x seems to sound more natural due to its more aggressive high frequencies. But then you…

  • Good sound for your money; excellent detail in the entire frequency spectrum; Extremely comfortable fit on the head thanks to soft ear cushions, slightly turned cups, as well as an absolutely ingenious solution - a soft cushion-like lining between the speakers and ears (maybe negatively affects the sound!)
  • There are a lot of high frequencies, their sound is somehow barrel-shaped and unrealistic, the bass sounds implausible.

Excellent quality, absolutely not expected for such a price.

I love these headphones. For many years I used regular ATH-M50s, but due to their age, I decided to retire them and buy an ated version. This is a great "workhorse" for everyday use at home and on the street, for listening to any music and a variety of genres - they will play everything, rest assured. They do not have a huge dependence on the source. They will play nice both from the phone and from the built-in codec of the motherboard. But, nevertheless, with a good sound card or an external…

  • - in fact - the sound. Detailed and balanced over the entire frequency range, the bass is dolbit normal'no, but does not "dirty" the sound picture, the middle sings, and the tops chirp. Headphones digest and play great any music - from country to hard rock and metal, from jazz to electronics. The sound is solid, full, voluminous, the feeling of presence is very high. As for closed headphones - a fairly wide stage, the location of the instruments is well defined. - assembly, design reliability - they are indestructible, assembled soundly and from high-quality plastic and partly metal, it is pleasant to hold in your hands, you can feel the value. I have an ancient pair of normal M50s, without the X prefix, which are eight years old - still intact and working without problems, although the cable is dazed and the headband has long since crumbled, but everything else has held up just fine after so many years. At the time of writing the review, the ATH-M50x has been in use for exactly a week. - interchangeable wires and the presence of as many as three in the kit, for different occasions and for different needs. The cables themselves are soft, thick, high-quality and pleasant. Easily replaceable ear pads. - the weight. Lightweight, weighing approximately 280 grams. The neck does not get tired, there is no pressure on the head. - extremely pleasant appearance. Simple, discreet, but very cute - the headphones do not catch the eye, but upon closer examination they turn out to be very beautiful. - a nice little thing - the presence in the kit of an adapter from 3.5 mm to 6.3 mm, which is not just put on, but screwed onto the plug.
  • - complete ear pads. The biggest disadvantage of these headphones for me personally. I bought the M50x - and immediately took them out of harm's way, putting on others that I had on regular M50s. The ones that come with the headphones are bad in every way - they are very thin and the hole is not large enough. In short, if your ears are larger than average, then these headphones will be overhead for you, not covering. Of course, different ear pads greatly affect the sound, but I still recommend throwing out the factory ones and looking for others. — headband material and factory ear pads. After some time (2-3 years of very active use), the headband begins to crumble into dust (literally). Ear pads begin to harden and deteriorate in less than a year. Again - I advise you to throw them away, they are not worth it.

I do not cease to rejoice at the purchase, a very good deal!

I bought this model on Ebay at an auction at a price half less than in the 2022, but only because it is not new, but used (2022), albeit in perfect condition.

  • - Excellent sound and sound detail. The bass is powerful, without blockage and porridge, the middle is very good, detailed highs - Very comfortable fit, does not press anything for a long time - Excellent soundproofing - Soft ear pads - Detachable cable (single-sided) - Three cables included for different occasions in life
  • - Ears may sweat when worn for a long time, but this is such a drop in the ocean that can not be considered a disadvantage.

I like the product very much, fully consistent with my expectations.

They are not suitable for DJs (some guides say yes), it is not convenient to listen with one ear, they are very large and heavy (they strive to fall off when hanging out))

  • I really liked the sound quality, I listened to my favorite performers in the flak, it turned out that I had not heard some sounds before. Before that, I listened to Koss Porta Pro and all sorts of Sony. Good soundproofing. Very healthy equipment, when you unpack it feels like you bought a THING, in the kit there are three interchangeable cords (twisted, straight), the cord snaps into place very securely.
  • The headphones put on quite a lot of pressure on the head, the headband material wrinkles unaesthetically, the headphones themselves are quite heavy, it gets hot in the ears, I think it’s not very comfortable to sit in them for a long time (I sat for an hour and a half).

High-quality product, the price corresponds to the quality.

Bought based on reviews and reviews. The promotion also influenced the choice, I took it at a discount. Ordered on the site, delivered by courier to the hands, the set is complete, satisfied with the ears, the sound is excellent, the money spent is worth it.

  • The sound quality is excellent in my opinion. 3 different wires included for different purposes, compact when folded.
  • As such, there are no shortcomings, except that it will be difficult to sit for 8 hours in a row, especially in summer. But, it is, nitpicking.

The purchase brought only positive emotions.

Its pros: Sound with a good amplifier. A set of cables and the possibility of replacement: 3 pcs, 1 short 1.5m, 2 three-meter, spring and simple. Reliability of fixation. Folding, in the "transport" position are compact. Good wear resistance: before that there were senheisers for $ 100, after six months of everyday use for about 4 hours, the ambichurs and the headrest cracked and became generally terrible, these have more than a year and a half, with constant traveling (senhi did not take with

I was surprised by the quality for this price.

Pros: At first I bought buyers that disappointed me very much, after which I bought just these headphones. After the first listening, I realized that the bottom was swollen, after which I got used to it, as this makes it possible to work more on it. If desired, this can be repaired with an equalizer. The equipment is very good, the ear pads are not bad, but still the buyers will be better and more pleasant, these ear pads cracked a year later, I found just fine ear pads on Amazon made of very…

Everything in the product suited me, the price is generally perfect.

For its price (bought for stock for 7300), one of the best headphones with its own shortcomings. Use only with corrective software, otherwise they do not pull on monitor headphones at all.

  • When used with frequency response correction programs (and preferably room emulation) like Realphones, headphones become a great control tool. Nice tight bottom.
  • They are terribly tight on my head and ears. I just can't stay in them for long. Too much top without correction.

The best price for such a product, I will buy more!

They put pressure on my head, but after wearing it with a hat in winter, they stretched out like a coat, I regret it a little.

  • Good, clear sound.
  • The cord sticks out down and rests on the hood if there is one) Surrounding dance along with you =/ On the rim where the inscription audio-technician, when put on the head, folds form, and on the head, when worn for more than an hour, an imprint of nailed hair from the headband is formed, and I have a feeling that the skull is also already dented, except for jokes, I'm in all seriousness, not stuffing . .)

Wonderful quality, one hundred percent satisfied!

in general, it’s not in vain that this model is recommended everywhere and in many reviews it is in the top of the best-excellent model! and it is not in vain that it has been produced in various modifications for more than a decade! If you are looking for closed headphones, be sure to pay attention to them!

  • sound! different interchangeable cables included and a good case . build quality (Taiwan)!
  • compared to other closed ears in this price range, ideal! did not notice any shortcomings!

Nothing ordinary, a normal product.

I listened on a Samsung smartphone, through an ifi hip dac, in general, there is a feeling that there is no limit, it shakes them perfectly, but at the same time the low ones are blurry, there is little drive, as well as volume. Rock music is not interesting to listen to, where the guitar should tear, it sleeps, the bass is wrong, springy. I connected my old ten-year-old Sennheiser 518 after them and realized that there was simply no point in this purchase for me. I don’t understand why there…

  • In general, a good sound, the cable comes unfastened (I don’t quite understand why).
  • 1. External design for a triple, the materials look cheap, the usual smooth plastic is everywhere, there are no chips, they look like headphones for a couple of thousand. 2. Leatherette ear pads, ears sweat, there is a feeling that the headphones are in the way. The size of the ear pads is small, which also creates some discomfort. 3. Well, the most important thing is the sound. Highs and mediums are bright, lows are not enough, this is especially clearly felt when listening to rock music, it is better on dance music. The sound is compressed, lacking volume and drive. Perhaps of course it is necessary to warm, but I do not think that it will be much better.

A really necessary purchase, I'm glad I found this product.

Headphones from which blows a red aura. These are LEGENDARY headphones! They have been made for over 15 years, and what is good is that the old version with a fixed wire, that the new iteration with bluetooth, keep the brand even after so many years. I take these headphones with me every day. I don’t take it only to the gym, there is TWS for this. The design is not elegant and sophisticated, not a status symbol, not expensive or rich, but they look good - in a youthful way. Not a and thanks for

  • Everything! This includes: modularity - finding spare parts: ear pads, headbands, wires (yes, it’s a little more difficult there, not everyone will fit. Moreover, none of the 3 broke down for me in 4 years of operation) and even damn it, a special bluetooth receiver carefully made by the notorious Chinese fiio for a cup (see Fiio BTA-10) of this particular model - my respect! Sound: Everything plays. Everything. Very honest sound with a little embellishment in the mid and low frequencies (however you like it) Assembly: Not counting the shabby old ear pads and headrest - after 4 years they haven’t broken, they don’t creak and they haven’t come loose. However, the quality! Can be customized with vinyl skins from overseas stores
  • They pulled out the hair from the beard when worn around the neck. And I don't have a very big beard. The 2.5mm cable is made specifically so that you go to buy a branded cable when the old one breaks. Not the lightest

Beyond praise! The product definitely deserves your attention.

If you connect these headphones to a phone, to a laptop without an external sound card or to a player, the sound will be quiet enough even at maximum volume, and this is not a minus of the headphones, but their use is not intended. They are designed to connect to an external sound card or amplifier (I use a Focusrite Scarlett Solo sound card). To comfortably listen from your phone, look for headphones with an impedance of no higher than 16 ohms. With proper use, these headphones are not only…

  • Excellent headphones, if used for their intended purpose (these are professional monitors, remember this), good detail, wide panorama, smooth and full-fledged sound, they fit tightly on the head and do not fall off, the package was surprising (three different cables, an adapter for a 6.3 mm jack , bag), I was also pleased with the specific connector on the headphones (you need to turn the jack about 10 degrees in the connector to fix it, this prevents accidental disconnection of the plug)
  • It’s rather inconvenient to hang it around your neck (the headphones start to put pressure on it), if the cable breaks for full use, you will have to buy the original one because of the fixing system, but it’s not cheap, but you can connect it with a regular cable with a 2.5 mm jack, I checked it with a cable from jbl headphones - plugs in and works, but doesn't hold too tightly in the socket

High-quality product, the price corresponds to the quality.

I would not wear it because of the soundproofing, it is there, but not everyone likes it, clear and bright sound, ideal for listening to indie, jazz, the bass is too physical (vibration to the ears) - it doesn't really fit in with a clean sound - but not so much that it's annoying.

As for me, they are a little expensive today, I took it myself for 6400 with a cumulative discount, I am satisfied with the purchase for the money given. Pros: Really high-quality assembly, reliable hinges, excellent sound isolation, leather ear pads. With its cons: Strong spring, more than 3 hours it is difficult to stay in them.
