The Audio Technica ATH-M50x is one of the most popular headphones we offer, because of its detailed, impactful sound coupled with a durable build that has professional use in mind.

The M50x was originally designed as a studio monitor, and their practical design reflects this. The M50x has around-ear earpads to block out external noise. The ear-pieces can swivel up to 90 degrees to allow for one ear monitoring, and also fold up into a more compact shape for easy portability in the included carry pouch. The build uses rugged plastics and metals to ensure long term durability. The M50x also features detachable cables, and comes with 3 cables included: a 1.2m straight cable for mobile use, and 1.2-3.0m coiled and 3.0m straight cables for home or studio use.

In terms of sound, the M50x has a detailed, aggressive sound with some emphasis on the low-frequncies and higher frequency treble. This sound signature is useful for studio monitoring because it allows the recording engineer to pick up sibilants and distortions in their mix. The same signature makes the M50x quite intense for casual music listening, but many people appreciate the forward sound for its detail compared to other products at this price point.

If you are looking for a studio monitor, you can also consider the Audio Technica ATH-M70x for monitoring where critical accuracy and comfort is key, as well as the ATH-M60x for mobile and broadcast monitoring.
