          Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

          The Audio-Technica ATH-M50S are rated #2 over-ear headphones at head-fi.org, and these ATH-M50X are the newer versions. It's a no-brainer if you don't already own the M50S, just buy these already.

          Pros:
          "Comfortable, detachable cable, short cable will fit most phones with cases, good lows and crisp mids"
          "Comfortable, detachable cable, slightly improved soundstage, tighter bass"

          Cons:
          "Tinny, no premium feel"
          "Only cables from Audio-Technica fit, Ears can get a little warm"

          Purchased these after two weeks of reading reviews and watching videos. I do not regret it! These headphones are well worth the price, and the detatchable headphone jack is a wonderful addition.

          Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

          Purchased for use in practice and recording situation on e-drums. Mostly use through JamHub or other mixer with full band mix, or with EKit alone. Also have used in professional studio recording acoustic kits. Works well in all applications so far, and would consider using live in place of Westone IEMs if needed.

          Isolation is good enough for most uses, but I have not used them in prolonged live situations, so not sure how much protection you would have after a full set.

          Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

          I wanted to try these because I have a couple of Dogs that like to run past the area I record in - they got tangled in my previous headphones and the cord ripped out of the headset and was basically destroyed. These have a cord that is removable/ changeable, so besides sounding great; maybe this will save money in the long term in regards to wear & tear.

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

            These headphones aren't just great for tracking because of their closed-back design. They're actually great for mixing as well because of their clear bass response and resistance to distortion. Audio Technica did a great job with with this update of the ATH-M50's. Definitely invest in a headphone amp, interface, or mixer as you may want to turn up the gain on your DAW's output. This is the best pair of headphones for the price on the market today.
