Perfect for video editing

Best audio of clarity while video editing. Probably the best out of the current market. The bass is clear. Is good it comes with a 2.0 if you want to plug into a PC/Mac.

So good

These headphones sound quality is great. The overall build is great. But to go further in the sound quality of these headphones is amazing it gives a cinema type vibe its very loud and there is no sound leaking. The wire doesn’t bend and the headphones are bendable so it very easily to take to travel. Show details ·  1

Great, solid headphones

Solid, fairly light, great sound, good looking. Bought this for production and DJ monitor headphones to replace the hd25's I have, because I found they were lacking in bass. The M50x are great, they go very loud, you might have to adjust a bit if coming from something else. As with any headphones, always take them for a spin in store first.

Bonus points for including various cables in the box Show details

Worth every cent

I brought this pair back in July 2015 and have used it almost every single day until now. The only issue til this day is that I needed to swap out the ear cushion as the original have degraded so much over the 4+ years.
The headphone is light and easy to bring on the train, bus or plane.
The bass is deeper, however it does not drown out the higher tones.
The durability is off the charts. (I am super careless. i.e. I have dropped it, thrown it, bumped it, etc...)
The wire is anchored it has saved my phone from certain death. (As long as the jack stays plugged in.

I would highly recommend this pair to all my friends and family looking for a headphone wihtin the 150-250 price range. (I brought these at 180 back in the days.) Show details

Great Product for Great Price

You can find these headphones at around $200 and for that price it's pretty great. The sound quality is great for what you get, though I'm not entirely satisfied with it and I'm planning to move onto higher-quality headphones. The noise-cancelling aspect of the headphones is great but not perfect (you can still hear things like a conversation going on near you) and it's going strong for a couple of years. I don't have any issue with comfort, these are very comfortable headphones. It feels of great construction and not flimsy at all, and it's been a nice companion for long overseas plane rides, vacuuming and casual listening. Show details

Nice headphones

Have been using these daily for gaming, youtube, twitch and music daily for 3 months now and so far so good! If you want to use these for outdoors, definitely consider buying the wireless ones. Show details

Great general purpose headphones

I use these headphones to edit videos in a noisy open-plan office. I've also used them for monitoring audio on a film shoot. They offer great clarity and accurate sound. The closed-back design helps to block out environmental noise.

I've worn them for a full day of editing before and, while they are a little tiring after long periods, they are not as bad as other studio headphones I've used.

It comes with three difference cables, which is a nice touch. Pads are replaceable too. Show details

Decent

The soundstage is very good and it has great bass. You can quite easily distinguish notes and sounds from each other in a song. The difference between my old earbuds (samsung defaults) was night and day. My only critique of them is that they are tight and will make your ears sweat within an hour.

Great value

Excellent headphones with almost perfect sounds quality. For their price they compete with earphones twice as expensive. Build quality is excellent and the addition of several different cables is extremely useful especially if the cables are damaged. Also these headphones are extremely comfortable and fit almost any head size really well.

Perfect headphones

I think i finally found the perfect headphones, just wow. The sound is so perfect, clean and balanced, i'm so surprised.

I've read a lot about them and there's several good reviews about them but just try them and I'm way impressed.

This headset is great and so far so good, I highly recommend it.

Best all round headphones. Highly recommend

I bought this for my son and compared to all of the headphones he had in the past, this one ticked all the boxes. He said that the sound quality and comfort is excellent and for the price as well as being a perfect all round headphone. It is definitely worth buying.

THE BEST

Whether it be for mixing or listening, you can't go past them in the price range they are. I own headphones from $20 to $500 and quite honestly the M50x sound the best for everyday listening, brilliant build quality, honestly I'd be lost without them. NOTHING in the price range even comes close to the levels of comfort you can get with these.
