Overall4 out of 54 out of 5
Loved them but it's a bumpy beginning.
By RuzhX from New York, NY, USA
Before hand just know that this review is coming from someone who's just using the headphones to listen to music during my daily college commute and at home for relaxation so don't take the criticism as a studio editor.
Anyways:
I received my headphones 48 hours ago and the first impression was that they look a bit too flexible and fragile which is not true, they are pretty durable just the filling on the headband looks like it might fall off eventually lol. Also they do squish my head just a little bit which makes it so I can't use them for over 3-4 hours like I would.
The quality of the sound is pretty awesome, you can feel the bass in a moderate way that it has a bit of a vibration to your ears that feels good and doesn't hurt you, the only downfall I found to the sound was that the vocals are a bit of a background to the music rather than being the focus point. It still sounds amazing but if you want to really listen to lyrics and not focus on the bass/treble etc then you have to focus in.
The flexibility of the headphones is sometimes annoying when I try to put them on because it just turns around by itself and I have to keep fixing them and they look a bit big on my head but that might be because it's my first over the ear headphones.
I also noticed a small thing that everyone who's had these seems to lie about.
- The sound does leak through the headphones a little, it's manageable but if you play the sound at full volume on a mobile device it will leak to a point where it's almost a low volume speaker.
I love the removable cable and the idea behind it (Wish they release a removable cable with a mic).
Other than the down-sides mentioned I'm pretty satisfied with the M50x I received which I purchased through Amazon, however, I really wish the BL edition had came out with the original black so I wouldn't have to think about whether or not i'll return mines to get the BL.

Glad you like you them!
Posted February 17, 2014
The headphones initially do come in with a decent amount clamping force on your head but as with all headphones, they will eventually loosen up over time. Don't be afraid to flex them a tad. That will help loosen them up until they're a comfortable fit since everyone's head size is different.
Although take care not to blast your ears. I can never listen to most of my sources past 50% volume since they're generally at reference level (meaning super loud).
Don't forget to try other sound sources with these headphones when you get the chance muahaha!
Stay safe!

Will replacement ear pads be available in the limited edition colours?

I'm on the fence about purchasing the black, white or limited edition blue/brown headphones. I'm just wondering if Audio-Technica will offer replacement pads in the colours of all the editions for sale? Or will customers have to replace ear pads with black ones? If only black replacements are going to be available, it might be silly to buy the non-black models.
Since the headphones are relatively brand new and circulating around the market, Audio-Technica does have replacement ear pads available for each respective model, including the Blue/Tan Limited Edition Model. Your question may touch upon how long those parts will stay in circulation. That will be completely up to Audio-Technica.

From my experience using Audio-Technica's equipment - ranging from their turntables to their headphones - I have not had any issues in obtaining parts for some of my older gear that are Limited-Edition types from their parts department (I have the ATH3000 for example).

You can contact their parts department via phone or email for parts availability and assistance.

does the m50x have a battery . If so how can i charge it

The ATH-M50x and the rest of the Remastered M Series are corded and uses passive isolation so they do not require any batteries to operate.

You simply plug-in and play.

Color Choice?

I was wondering about how do the white hold up against dirt, buffs and imperfections. Would the black look new longer?
Hello, Lynz!

The finish on white version of the ATH-M50x is quite resilient against dust/dirt build up, smears, and scratches.

It'll last as long as you take good care of them.

Once in a long while - you can give them a simple wipe, either with a lightly moist piece of cloth or baby wipes, to help keep them clean.

is audio technica m50x is capable for all devies like mobiles .pc.laptops and does it has 3.5mm jack to 3.5mm .....

hi

I just want buy one of this m50x and I am worried of capability of devise so can m50x can run on all devises which have 3.5 mm head phone jack and can I run this in any mobile and any pc or laptop and are this great for listening all types of music ?
what about the sound clarity of this for music and all... etc...

thanks
Hello Rohan!

The ATH-M50x can be driven by virtually all devices with a 3.5mm headphone jack.

3 cables will be provided with your purchase of the ATH-M50x models.

1x - Coiled cable (stretchable from 1.2m to 3.0m) terminated with 3.5mm male pin with treads to screw-on ¼" stereo phone adapter when needed.

1x - Long straight cable (3.0m) terminated with 3.5mm male pin with treads to screw-on ¼" stereo phone adapter.

1x - 1.2m straight cable terminated with a 3.5mm male pin for portable use.

These are great for all types of music since the M50x are studio monitoring headphones. They are designed to be perceptually clear and accurate in sound quality.

Because of their clarity and accurate sound reproduction, you better make sure you feed them with good quality audio files. What you feed them is what you'll hear. They will reproduce everything in your music so if you feed them poor quality material, you'll definitely hear imperfections.

Stick with FLAC/WAV/PCM and other lossless materials if you're able to. If you're an MP3 fan, make sure they're 320kbps/0VBR sound files for best possible quality.

Take care!

How many db does ATH-M50x passively isolate?

I was wondering how much db will these headphones isolate noise? Using these in a studio with noise from surrounding offices, sometimes loud so I want to isolate these sounds, as I know this might not completely cut out all of the sound.

Thanks
Unfortunately your question suffers from a fundamental problem where noise reduction can't be given by a single value. Why? Simply because ambient noise bolsters a very wide frequency range.

In other words, if you ask "How much noise reduction will this piece of equipment provide?"

We kindly respond: "At what frequency?"

This is the primary reason why most published values out there are considered bogus. Not to mention it's quite difficult to test.

The ATH-M50x offers good isolation. I've done a few analysis with these headphones and it offers anywhere between 0 and -36dB reduction depending on which frequency you ask for. For example the headphones attenuated ambient noise with variance from 0 dB to -15dB approaching the 1kHz frequency. The M50x then steadily attenuated ambient noise down to -33dB approaching 4kHz. Beyond the 4kHz frequency range the headphones attenuate anywhere between -25dB to -35dB. Not the best isolation out there, but good enough for most environments.

And that's not taking into account of our own crude form of isolation by way of playing sounds in our headphones over the ambient noise LOL

From my own personal account, I can hear some noise while the M50x are silent. However, once I start playing sounds, even I couldn't hear my relatives banging viciously at my locked door 12ft away from my station while my smoke alarm was going off...until I stopped playing my transport stream! (True story! I've learned to keep my door partially open while I'm mixing since then lol)

About the closest experience I can relate to your environment would be in busy food court at a local mall with my laptop. Sure enough there some faint noise during playback but I've had no problems editing audio tracks on-the-go until I ran into some of the quieter passages of the track.

See if you can audition them somewhere at a local authorized store to get your own opinion of them. If isolation is critical in your work, I would definitely take a look at Audio-Technica's line of IEMs like the ATH-IM50 since IEMs offer the best possible noise isolation.

Take care!

If I plan on using the headphones predominantly with my iphone / ipad (without amp) will I get the kind of sound that this headphone is famous for?

The headphones really don't require much power at all to get them going. Hence the reason many people buying these for portable use as they don't require an amp. They offer quite a bang in audio quality at real good price. I can say with real confidence that you'll hear good sound/music out of them.

As to whether or not you'll be able to experience the full sound spectrum of these headphones from the devices you mentioned...there's not a definite answer for this. I'll be honest here as it's definitely a yes or no kind of thing with subjectivity.

As I've mentioned elsewhere, not all devices are created equal. They'll either power them sufficiently or be inadequate in power.

Some personal experiences of mine with the portables I have:

-1st generation nano powered these headphones decently, but there was real lack in bass extension despite using EQ settings to help. It was like listening to Led Zep's "Kashmir" with 15 dollar ear buds.

-Samsung Galaxy S3 drove these without too much problem. Bass extension was good without EQ and it sounded a bit more full with good details. Got similar results with our 1st generation Ipad, but it introduced an audible white noise (hiss) in the background. The hiss was absent on our 3rd generation Ipad though!

-1st generation Iphone had real trouble driving these headphones. Certain high frequencies sounded muffled and came out like static. Bass was quite weak. Our 2nd generation Iphone didn't have this problem at all.

-My HTC 3D EVO had no trouble driving these headphones but it introduces quite a loud hiss in the background and distorts very easily at higher volumes.

As you can see, your mileage could vary some here.

I'm comparing these experiences with either my home theater receiver or the Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus (DAC) on my desktop where both offer clean sound with very low noise/distortion. This is one of the few reasons why some folk out there like myself pick up a DAC/AMP to get out of these pitfalls in audio quality.

You can probably see why I'm a bit adamant in telling people to try other sources out before they judge their headphones. You can't completely judge a book by its cover, right? Hehe!

All in all, try auditioning them if you're able to. Considering the fact that these headphones have gotten super portable now with detachable cables makes for a pretty darn good buy.

Take care!

About ATH-M50x Professional Headphones

"Does anyone else who bought the M50x have their ear cups click when they swivel "up and down" 180 degrees? (Not the "left and right" swivel)"
The clicks you hear when you flip the earpieces horizontally is completely normal as there is a bit of a locking mechanism in them. It helps keep the earpieces in position without it dangling freely towards the ground.

Is the cord detachable from the headset itself (easily replaceable), and how long is the cord?

I'm looking for great headphones for practicing guitar for less than $60. I want detailed sound, a good legthened cord that is replaceable in case torn during practice sessions, and just curious as to how long the cord is. Thanks!
Correction: (Ugh I need more sleep lol)

Only the M40x and M50x offers detaching cables on the new M series.

Audio-Technica only has a handful of headphone models with detachable cables. I would still consider the M series for your practice sessions and budget points.

All in all, feel free to shop around!

Hello Bdawg!

The ATH-AX1iS does not have a detachable cable. The length of the cord is 1.2 meters (3.9 feet).

I would recommend you take a look at either the ATH-M20x or the ATH-M30x from Audio-Technica's Remastered M Series. They cater much better for your needs and are good tools to practice with your instrument. They both will fit your budget and offer multiple detachable cables with a screw-on phono adapter if you plan to hook them up to an amp.

They'll be available at many authorized retailers for a good price by the end of February, 2014.
