Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Review
The Audio-Technica Black ATH-M50x Closed-Back Professional Headphones deliver an immensely accurate listening experience in comfortable, lightweight design. The drivers are 45mm and offer wide 15Hz to 28 KHz frequency response for people to hear the highest trebles and lowest bass.
Adjustable, cushioned ear-cups and padded headband allow you to listen without fatigue for hours on end. These earpieces can swivel for convenient single-ear monitoring. The collapsible design too is great for travel and storage. The coiled single-sided cable minimizes tangles, with the 3.5mm miniplug being compatible with a host of audio devices. Users get a ¼-inch adapter for connecting to professional-level gear. As well, a handy carrying pouch is included.
The ATH-M50x has undergone testing by and been approved by professional audio reviewers and engineers. These feature the same popular sonic signature plus detachable cables. Large aperture drivers, robust construction and sound-isolating ear-cups make the M50x a critical sound tool for audio professionals.
The M50 seems to focus on user-experience to a high degree. Both the M50x and M50 are identical in terms of overall exterior and interior design as well as sound performance. The single biggest difference noticeable between these two headphones is the audio cable, which can be detached in the ATH-M50x. This head gear comes in standard flavors of white and black in the limited-edition navy blue that has brown trim, a new exclusive color to M50x model.
In the past, users only had choice of either ATH-M50s fixed straight cable or the ATH-M50 coiled detachable version. The M50x now includes both versions plus a third one which addresses matters of portability convenience. This particular cable best suits use with portable gadgets such as Smartphone and comes along with a relatively-short 1.2m-long, 3.5mm-slim plug. However, none of the included cables offer in-line remote control for volume adjustment, headset functionality or skipping tracks. This is somewhat disappointing, since a short cable was included which had in mind portable devices. Even then, the thick and robust cables do offer sufficient flexibility to keep the user from feeling stiff and restricting. The leather pouch included is soft and smooth and may not offer a lot of protection, which is vital to account when travelling. Every cable features 3.5mm audio source plug. The two cables are lengthy and have adapter connector which can be screwed and fits the gold-plated, 6.3mm adapter included.
