Amazing audio quality with great accessories
Ironically, I managed to buy these off a reviewer who was selling them. I can't imagine why he'd get rid of them though as they are amazing. This was a serious upgrade from my previous headset for me, which I primarily used for gaming. But these are purely for DJing and listening to music. However, every time I've played games with this, especially Elite Dangerous or other games with high definition audio they really show why they are top quality.
Obviously there are more expensive AT and other headsets out there but for me, these excel. The h...igh, mid and low are all tuned to perfection. Admittedly the volume is a little low but the other sets of Audio-Technica earbuds and headsets I also own are the same - paired with a headphone amplifier they are all beasts! They're not wireless and that's fine for DJing from a controller and my PC. Two different cables are included - a springy cable and an extra long normal cable. There is also an adapter jack from 3.5mm to standard 6.3mm jack. All of them are gold plated and the cables are well insulated. You also get a soft bag with them for safer transport. I bought a hard container off eBay and regretted it as it would only carry the headphones and one cable. So just stick with the bag and save yourselves some cash. Overall for the music I play and listen to - breaks, Progressive House, Trance, Melodic Techno and pure Techno - these are incredible. I was lucky to get them for $134 so half-price. But full-price they are still worth it.

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.

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

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.)
Purchased in July 2015 at Wireless 1 for $185.00.
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.

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.
Purchased in August 2017 at Minidisc Australia Online store for $208.95.
Great for listening and great to look at
I use this to listen to music for my daily commute to work and uni. They're super comfy and can be worn for a long time without it hurting. I haven't had any issues with them so far and they make for a great bit of head fashion.
Purchased in February 2019 at Store DJ for $190.00.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
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.
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.
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.
These are excellent headphones for under $200

A must have
I have used these headphones for over 2 years. Of all the headphones I have used, these ones provide the best frequency response and a powerful volume level. They're comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time and sturdy enough to last a lifetime. They are a must have for anybody who wants to listen to high-quality music and audio.
Best of the lot
I spent a good hour listening to all the headphones on display at Jaben Audio. I chose this out of the lot, and also over the M40x and M70x. Yes, they do get uncomfortable after a short time and a quick break is required. Sennheiser had the most comfortable pair, but the audio quality did not compare. At the end of the day, these are fantastic for my studio mixing, and got me through a mixing project I had to complete. I am still very happy with the purchase.
REALLY, REALLY GOOD
these things are built well, have amazing sound and for the price they are right now to have those three important things all very strong is no-brainer.
They look good, sit comfortably on you head and just do EVERYTHING very well.
If you are an AUDIOPHILE, you might be wanting a bit more but only comes from spending more $$$$
If you want good audio but aren't wanting to spent hundreds more,in buying these You will not be disappointed
