The Audio Technica M50x is one of the best products I've ever owned. For a price under 200, you'll be getting a pair that would smoke the leading headphone brand.
Unlike the top brands of headphones made for young consumers which are "bass oriented," these headphones have an even sound, were strictly made for monitoring, and work well when you use an equalizer to mix your projects. The M50x sounds great with any genre of music.
These headphones come with detachable cords unlike the old m50 model. They are also great for personal use and comes with a short cable, as well as a spring (coiled) cable for everyday listening. A 3m cable is included as well so if you're uncomfortable stretching the coiled cord, use the long straight cable instead.
Overall, these are a great alternative to those who don't want to cave into trends. Perfect for the enthusiastic audiophile or the average listener.
Pros good even sound, sleek design, foldable headphones for portability, lightweight, comes with 3 different cables and an adapter
Cons takes hours of listening to "break in"

Can you please clalify that both cables will be in the box

The last response seems to suggest that one or the other cable has to be purchased from your service department.
thanks
All M50X models have 3 cables. A coiled and 2 straight (Iong and short)

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
The more gain you put on your headphones the less likely you're able to hear noise. These are not noise cancelling headphones but when put over the ears, the suction of the ear cups blocks out some sound from all around.
