Apurv reviewed the Audio Technica ATH-M50x headphones for us. Read about what he had to say!


 Design And Build

Straight out of the box, it seemed like the headphones that I had been looking all over for. It comes with three different cables, each one built for a specific type of use. There was also a handy pouch, which I'm a huge fan of because now I can carry my headphones everywhere I go without having to worry how I'm going to pack them. The headphones have a lock once you connect the cable which is very simple. And the fold into themselves to make packing child's play. Most comfortable headphones I've ever used. Can use them for hours and no fatigue.

Other Gear Owned

I use these headphones to track and sometimes fine-tune mixes in my home studio. I recently took them with me to Yash Raj Studios to track and dial in guitar effects for the upcoming The Family Cheese album, and good god, it was by far the best thing I've done. I've never heard MP3s sound so good. To unblock the full potential, I suggest you get an FLAC cd from headphone zone and hear the difference. 

Sound & Performance

They've surpassed what I was expecting to hear. I've never heard mixes sound so alive. Everything falls beautifully into its own little niche. You've got to hear it to believe it. The low end is nice and round and the highs are nice and crisp. Great headphones.


Great product, super comfortable, super light. I don't leave home without them and I don't do any serious listening without them either. I'm so glad that I picked these headphones and I'm forever thankful to Headphone Zone for sourcing them out for me and making all of this happen.
