Love 'em
The Audio-Technica M50 has long been my favorite pair of headphones, and sometimes you're just not in the mood to deal with a cable. These sound just as good to me as the original, but they're wireless! The only downside is the tiny buzz I hear in the background when in a quiet room with nothing playing; it seems the internal circuitry isn't completely quiet. That said, the buzz is not present when the bluetooth receiver is off, so you can always run them with the included wire for the pure experience. Fantastic.

Go-to all the time
These go with me almost anywhere and have never disappointed me. B-stock it may be but had never acted or looked that way, so i'll take it as a discount. There was a point where there were some really obnoxious loud pops but it's been awhile since i've heard them.

The original M50X but now wireless
If you own the original m50x headphones, then there's not much different here. The sound signature and build is exactly what you might expect, and that's good. It already sounds and feels great. Over the years, I've gotten spoiled with the Airpods and the freedom from being tethered to a cable. Now I get to have bluetooth with buttons to control playback over my favorite pair of headphones. There is an oh so slight difference in quality with Bluetooth vs straight cable, and that's to be expected, but it doesn't tarnish the experience for me. If you're going wireless, it's for the convenience. The battery life and range is great and the option to continue using the headphones with the cable without the device needing to be on is good to have too. Just a note though, the included cable that comes with a built in mic (there is also a mic on the headphones for bluetooth calls) is a lot smaller than what you might expect from the wired M50x headphones. And you can't reuse the cables from the wired M50x because the TRS plug that connects to the headphones is now the standard 3.5mm (1/8") size and not the 2.5mm with deep inset connector that were previously used. I thought I could replace my M50x's in my studio here where the long cable comes in handy but that's not the case unfortunately. I had an unfortunate bug when I first started using these headphones on my Mac. Whenever I paused playback in a video such as Youtube or media outside of Spotify, the entire volume in the headphones would cut away and not return until I replayed the same media. I didn't have this problem with other pairs of headphones and it made the experience super frustrating. I would have rated them lower than a 3 until I discovered that a firmware update would fix it. That's not to say Audio-Technica gets away with it though, because the firmware update took what felt like 30-40 minutes to complete and is only possible to do with an app on iPhone and Android connected via Bluetooth. The app has to remain on screen and open without going to sleep to avoid issues and the update process requires pressing every button awkwardly for 8 or so seconds. So while that fixed the issues I was having and it really wasn't that bad of an experience, it's something I would expect from a bluetooth headset from 8 years ago. Overall, with the firmware fix, I would recommend these headphones if you want to have the same benefits of the M50x audio signature while jamming it wirelessly. At the price they normally go for, it may be a little bit of a pill to swallow and I wish it would carry some of the same comforts the Airpods have, like pausing when you take the headphones off. But the price Massdrop puts them at is more in line to what the normal M50x's cost, so it's definitely a no brainer. If you already own a pair of M50x and want to keep using them in the studio, eh, maybe keep the wired ones.

I have the wired M50's and they are awesome (really tempted to pickup the bluetooth ones as I love the sound from the M50). I bought aftermarket DEKONI pads from Drop and was not very satisfied as they were thinner than the OEM pads and my ear would contact the plastic. For me, the M50's ended up being really comfortable, even when wearing them for hours doing work/programming, and I really have not needed a different pad.

It depends on the aftermarket pads you get. On the other end of voidopolis' pads, I picked up a pair of much larger, plusher, much more comfortable pads but the trade off was it completely changed the sound signature of the M50s. When you put your ear further away from where they normally sit with the stock pads, you end up losing highs and lows and boosting the mids. They sounded terrible IMO, and ends up negating the purpose of picking up the m50x's in the first place. They designed the headphones and their sound characteristics with the pads they come with. also like @voidopolis, the normal/stock pads are comfortable enough for me and i can go through them for hours. But I understand they don't comfortably fit everyone. If you wanted to go with aftermarket pads, try to get some that are the same size or maybe a little smaller, but not larger

Comfortable and good quality
Not an audiophile but this more than does the job for me. Lots of convenience in being able to use Bluetooth or plugging in since BT works great with my phone but not so much with my laptop.

Best mobile audio quality
Nothing gets close to the M50XBT when it comes to portable audio quality. That said, it gets uncomfortable quickly since these cans rely on very good sealing to perform at its best. In addition to this, microphone quality is terrible, though it's nice to have for calling.

Ok sound, OK all around
**3.5 would be my real score** I have been in the headphones space for a little over 10 years now. These cans are not in my top pic. I would refrain to spend as much on these if you are hesitant. Here are my reasons: (negatives)
  • Sound quality is par to sub-par at best (nice mids, highs are screechy and lows are loose)
  • Bluetooth connectivity is very wonky. (Once connected they work fine though, the issue is changing from one device to the next
  • They get hot. I have many closed and open headphones, these are very hot
  • They get uncomfortable for me after 1h30 of use, the squeeze is quite annoying
  • IMO still expensive for what you get, even if this drop is decent
  • Battery life <3 (50+hours for me)
  • Nice little bag and the stow away easily
  • Not ANC but the are very closed (not much leakage ... but hot)
  • Look good
  • Bluetooth has great range
  • You can use them as PC/Video Conference headphones (They have an integrated mic)
All in all, I believe I will change the pads and see if this helps out my listening experience a bit. I think more companies should do B-Stock like this. It's worth it for the consumer in the end, even if the drop dates are later. I think I was biased by my own beliefs, I was expecting more because of the hype M50's have around them, and usually that is not the best sign. ** I do recommend for someone who understands what they are getting. For someone newer in the Headphones world, I think they check a lot of good boxes, for someone who has been around the block a bit I believe they are a tad Flawed.** Thanks for reading

These headphones are awesome. It took me a little while to get used to the closed back sound stage, but once I did it is really easy to hear the difference between these cans and my previous pair. They really help people you have an ear for music to focus on each individual instrument or effect.

I had been considering buying the M50x's for quite some time. Adding Bluetooth as an option and the cost savings of B-stock sold me on the M50xBT's. I use Bluetooth mainly while watching movies and sports on my laptop or phone. Connectivity has been great, no issues. I use the cable for music and the short cord is convenient while moving around while connected to my phone. I'm sure the short cord would bother me if I was using these in the office at my desk. I have Status CB-1's at the office where the longer and/or coiled cord options work perfectly. My only complaint with the BT's is the stock earpads. They are not as comfortable for long periods of use as the ones on my CB-1's.

Not too bad. M50 sound with portability.
