it's not for bass fans


... because these are accurate headphones, like Sennheiser and AKG etc; unlike some big brand headphones that are all label but relatively poor quality.

Had these for 6 years with a tiny £20 Fiio headphone pre-amp that I use together on the go.

Nothing can even come close at that price range

Have been using these headphones exclusively for the last four years. They haven’t skipped a beat. Still look like new, they are tough as nails. Sound is excellent can’t complain although I am not an audiophile by any stretch. Love these to death. Would recommend. An absolute steal at this price.
I bought the FiiO BTA10 Bluetooth adapter for these recently and was surprised that they sounded almost as good as they do wired. The sound is much better than the Sony XM3s I had, so I ended up returning them. (Sound over noise cancellation more important to me)
I have M40s that I use with a Oppo HA2 SE DAC amp and they have plenty bass.
Had a pair of these for a couples eventually I sold them couldn't take the clamping on my head from the frame good headphones though
Ordered as I had these a few years back but had to sell due to some financial difficulties, they were great
I bought these for £105, connected to my Asus xonar dx these are great, better than roccat khan pro that snapped, and have trouble with warranty within year.
That is really cheap. I sell them used for this kind of money.

What was the preamp you used?
THESE ARE REALLY REALLY GOOD AND I THINK YOU SHOULD BUY THEM.
Great set, upgrade from my basic Sennheisers when they packed in.
Only downside is the foam pads don't last long and Audio-Technica never have replacements in stock, but I purchased third party ones and they're probably better than the original pads.
I love the fact you can unplug them at the headphones themselves and simply untwist the cord very easily. I would recommend them.

I have a m50x bluetooth version I purchased at the end of January last month, so not even a month old. I am selling it because I don't like the clamping although the sound quality is amazing.

I wouldn't mind but they are all the bass you need, closed back. Any more bass from headphones just ruin a track. Bass is over rated. The M50s were also £50 a long time ago mind.

It doesn't look all that accurate.

Bass extension is needed to be accurate. Unless you think otherwise?

I swapped my pads to velour, much easier on clamping, fatigue and sound quality. Also, try some bayern's out, the non pros are much more free on the ears. Same cans just not as tight.
Been waiting for over 3 years for the price to drop to my biting point. Finally the wait is over.....bought.
Crazy good deal.
Whaaaat! I think I paid more for my ATH-M40X. Shall I upgrade?
Worth it?
Had these since 2015- amazing sound, use them daily. I’ve had to change the earpads recently though, the pleather was peeling off (same on the headband). Would happily buy them again either way!
Which top audio engineers praised these, can anyone name me 1 ?
These or beyerdynamic dt 770 80ohm
Bought these nearly five years ago. They're tremendous. Paid £104.52 for them, and they have been worth every penny.
This is a steal. Buy them!
I replaced my old M50s with a set of M50Xs, because the (really old) M50s broke in a way the M50Xs made a non-issue. Funny really. The fact I went out and bought what's effectively the same model to replace a broken set speaks for itself; I'd probably get another pair too if I managed to sit on my current set or whatever. They're simply a great set of headphones, and this price is pretty crazy for the quality.

You can’t compare these to wireless headphones such as Sony XM3 or anything more commercial really,these (like most -but not all- Sennheiser headphones) has more neutral,natural,flat tuning and sound,which is accurate,whereas Sony XM3 has “sculptured” / tuned sound with tweaked bass/treble.
completely different sound,but each appeal to different people.
These are amazing headphones to produce music or DJ with. There is so much clarity in all the frequencies, you can identify parts in songs you’ve never heard before and they give you a well balanced mix for your own tracks. They don’t exaggerate the bass like most headphones do, but they can pack a serious punch, it depends on the track you’re listening to and how the artist has created the bass.

These headphones are a steal at this price.

The Beyer have a higher impedance and will therefore a great voltage to drive them.

So Beyer would be less suitable for portable devices which are designed to work with about 16 to 32 ohms.

I hope this helps.
Are these headphones any good for gaming?. I could do with some for my Ps4.

Bought some noise cancelling Audio Technica headphones back in 2010 for $125. They're still used whenver I fly and are amazing.
I already have these, owned for 4/5 years, I think I might grab another pair for my partner! They are incredible, highly reccomend.

I play with them, they are slightly heavy but still very comfortable and also very resistant. As others said in the thread, those headphones will easily last 10 years. I've had mine for about 5 years, they get bashed around and travel a lot and they still work perfectly.

I don't know if you ever had a chance to watch a live gig, but the bass and drums usually shake the windows, floors and knock your teeth out.

"accurate" my a$$
Had the same pair since 2016, although the padding is a bit worn, the audio quality is still undefeated at this price range.

Considering buying another pair at this price.

I'm sure they sell a Bluetooth version of these but not sure whether they use the same drivers - just a note for people who may want them

How have the earpads lasted over that time?
I have some AKG K550 about 5 years old and the earpads and headband liner started to disintegrate after only about 3 years. Only the outer covering rather than the foam. Replaced for about £30 - ouch!
I have the non-X variant of these which are near identical in specs. They have excellent sound quality though sound separation and transparency are not as good as the more expensive studio-grade headphones. These are great for general listening but IMO not the best for mixing or critical listening in a studio, though if your mix sounds good through these then they will sound good on any sound source.
And whilst they are flatter than other headphones in the price range they still have some colouration particularly at the low end.
