Fantastic BT headphones
A R C , 17.08.2020
I've had these for about a year as of writing and I must say these headphones are up there with the best purchases I have ever made. They are comfortable, durable and have a ridiculously long battery life (with casual use I charge them probably every 2-3 weeks) with great sound.
The fold up well into the decent quality leather(ette?) carry bag, and I've had no issues with ear so far at all - they're pretty much good as new and I don't exactly treat them perfectly. I did purchase a headband cover from eBay for a few pounds in order to protect it from the rain as I use these whenever I'm out and about alone for music and podcasts.

I use the bluetooth for most casual/general purposes and wired for mixing on the go when I don't have access to monitors. Bluetooth latency is very low and unnoticeable for calls and even (for the most part) videos, but unfortunately the tech isn't there yet for realtime playing/mixing. As headphones go, they're pretty damn good for this purpose - rough mixes don't need as much touching up and fixing than with most headphones. When travelling I've made songs using these (for the most part) alone, and returned to the studio just to polish and finish up mixing.
The response is a lot flatter than, say the V shaped EQ of the Sony XM3's, but of course they're not completely neutral - they sound crisp with punchy low end but I won't go into too much detail as there are many reviews of the sound of these and the non BT ATM-M50x's which I beleive use the same drivers.

Attaching the cable interrupts bluetooth and automatically powers the headphones off (they work passively when wired so work even when the headphones are out of battery). This happens regardless of the on/off switch so if you forgot to turn them off, after disconecting the cable turning the power off and on again turns the headphones on.

The main problem I have is that Audio-Technica uses a deeply recessed 3.5mm connector on the headphones meaning many cables will not fit. I purchased some metal cased cables, one of which has a slight recess which works, and another of which did not, so I had to get the pliers out. I suspect this is AT's attempt to screw over consumers and force them to buy their original 3.5mm cables, which apart from the inline mic and pause button, works identically to any other.

The in-built mic is pretty good for phone calls although because of how bluetooth mangles call quality I normally plug in the cable if I take an internet call (Signal, Discord etc) where the mic in the cable that comes with it is pretty good all things considered.

The controls are easy to use although I mostly just use them for pause/play and volume adjustments. I do not use the Siri/Google assitant button and apparently my friend coudn't figure out how to get that touch panel working when connecting to his iPhone, but I haven't tried it myself since I have no use for it.

Decent
ozantunca, 10.08.2019
I bought this headphone as a monitor headphone and it works perfectly. I love the quality and the clarity of the sound and I've been happily using it for the past weeks. Initially I wasn't sure whether I should get this or the none-bluetooth version but I'm happy that I got this because bluetooth functionality works perfectly as well. The battery life is amazing. I didn't measure it but I'm assuming the 40-hour battery life in the description is accurate. This solid bluetooth functionality makes it perfect for both casual listening and producing.

The weight difference between the none-bluetooth version is negligible but they're both a bit heavier than the average headphones.

Just what you can expect

Solid building, great crystalline sound, flawless design.
Didn't notice any quality loss on BT compared to cable.
For naming a con, they re slightly heavy: Expectable given there s a battery inside.
