Amazing Headphones
30.01.2017
I have been using this for a month, and I can say these headphones are amazing, I have been able to perceive certain elements that in other headphones I have never heard.

My only problem with this was I heard strange noises like a distortion on a few songs. But I asked to a friend that have studio monitors to listening the same songs and see if they listening it too. And yes, he hear it. So this prove a lot of the quality of the headphones, this proves that you will be able of listening the 100% of the quality of the mixing of the songs and be able to see what songs have amazing mixing and see what songs have bad mixing with a lot of distortion.

Another curious fact was when I watching movies, I wanted to take the headphones to the "limit" and although they are not made properly to watch movies but for music production.
I wanted to know how they behaved and once again, it's a difficult feeling to explain, but these headphones are really good, quality was really fantastic, all elements of the film were perfectly audible.
In terms of sound can't identify a negative point.

The quality of material of manufacture is the weak point, In my opinion the quality of the material could be a better for the price.

Pros:
- Sound:
Amazing sound for the price.
Improve a lot my mixing skills.
- Comfort:
Contrary to what I read before buying, I really like the comfort they offer.
- Be able of change cable.

Cons:
- Material of manufacture.
- Only be able of use Audio-Technica cables.


If you want a headphones for be able to produce music or hear music with a lot of quality this is the best option.
I think it was one of my best purchases. Worth it.

Good Product
Radoslaw L., 26.03.2018
Probably one of the best headphones in the price range.
The M50x are comfortable enough but after a longer while can get heavy. They are also quite a tight fit but seem very sturdy, and are well sound sealed, so you do get the full potential of the sound coming through your ears.
Sound-wise; The headphones are little bit bias on the low end, so if you are looking to use them as a mixing monitor, be aware of the sound spectrum that can be a little bit over the top on the bass side.
I feel that the high end of the headphones response is a little too compromised and can be drowned out , as the low range seems to take over a lot. Having said all that, the headphones do handle extremely well and you can really push them with high volumes and there are no issues whatsoever.
I would give it a 7.5/10 overall score mainly because of the handling and built quality. If you are looking for a good pair of headphones, the 50x are a good way to go without busting the bank. Other alternative is the Sennheiser HD 380 pro, which are slightly more delicate, but yet very comfortable, with a little bit more of the high end range and more realistic perspective one the Mid/low range, but then again not as sturdy and feel quite fragile.
I hope that helps.
