What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones
  • They are full sized headphones; however, they do fold up for easier transport.
  • Housed within the plastic exterior is a metal frame that gives the headphones just the right amount of weight, assuring its durability.
  • The handset at first sight gives an impression of good construction, has a good weight.
  • The only cons I really have for them is the weight and stiffness. The weight takes some extended time to get used to especially if they are your first pair of studio quality headphones.
  • The only downside I felt, the weight on the ears was a bit heavier than my previous headphones, but I was able to adapt with time.

What customers say about "Features"
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Monitor Headphones
  • The frequency response is fairly neutral and they have great dynamic range.
  • Audio comes through clearly and the different frequency ranges are well defined.
  • I am going to an extent of saying that these are the best sounding headphones I've ever used, and thanks to their low impedance, I can use them on my phone without sacrificing on anything.
  • With an impedance of 38 ohms you do not need a headphone amp to drive them.
  • Unfortunately, they do not come with 1.2 m cable like a big brother m50x, so you have to wear 3 meters one with you
  • Not for everyone. The sound is amazing throughout the entire spectrum but it is very flat.
