I own a pair of m50x for years, and I absolutely hate the pair. It's soooo overhyped. Sure, it is a fabulous pair of headphones--for professional studio use, since it's a pair of MONITORS. All the qualities are tailored toward that end. It's flat, it's dry, it's boring, but it's extremely accurate and cost-effective. Hence, they suck at almost everything else aside from recording or mixing. I'm not saying m50x is a bad pair of headphones--far from it; the sound quality is superb--but they are built specifically for a even more specific group of industry professionals which most of us aren't a part of. If you want enjoyment and COMFORT, seriously, look elsewhere. However, sound, enjoyment, and comfort are very subjective... and they really are a great pair for the price. I hate them, but don't regret ever owning them. So... take them or leave them, both at your own risk. Personally, I've longed outgrown my m50x into a pair of DT1990 Pro, and not looking back at all.
Feel the same - M50X's are overhyped. I also own two pairs. Never use them now. Nice for decorations though...
I would really like to this set of cans become a drop
the fact it works out at £170 for the m50x on here but theyre only £125 on amazon
I have an ATH-M50. It's a very old one without the removable cord.
A: Coiled cords SUCK SO MUCH. I can't remove my fucking cord-- even worse, the tangling is permanent on it.
B: Durability and quality of audio is EXCELLENT. I've had it for years. Years!
The only downfaults are the end of the cable ( spring inside can get messed up and torn out ), headphone cushions ( torn up to hell and back ), and the headband over your head ( torn up, but still holding )
Audio quality still holds up but there is no "thumping" when you put it on full blast
Edit: Here it is, discontinued
wheeennnnnnn its almost at the point were it has past 10 times the request range
when is this gonna happen?
So many M50x polls. They aren't even... Really.. great? UPDATE: People are getting butt hurt over the truth.

They don't have a flat frequency response, at all. They're flatter than something like a DT990 but they are very much so bass and treble headphones. Mids are recessed, very high, highs are there. "Dumb" video. Somebody is a fanboy. Why would you make bass heavy headphones for monitoring?... You want flat, analytical so that you may make the music as you want it to be heard.
dt770, Sony sounds better in same price range, akg k553, sennheiser 598's or the cheaper closed back models.
i will kiss for ath-50x
Can this happen already?
can they also bundle the mic? or does that have to be another drop
Can we wait with this until the 25th, that's when I get paid.
when is this drop happning?
