Excellent Headphones [Video Review] This is a video review from the MKBHD YouTube Channel: […]This is my new all-time favorite pair of headphones. I’ve gone through my Beats by Dre phase. I’ve gone through my in-ear buds phase [high school]. I’ve been sent numerous pairs of headphones to review for my YouTube channel. Only 1 has received a 10/10 with an outstanding price/performance ratio. And that’s the M50s.Enjoy the video!PS – You should totally subscribe to the MKBHD YouTube channel =]

One of the finest headphones period. I’ll say this first off: I don’t record, DJ, or do any mixes with this headphone (no prosumer work). These Audio Technica M50’s (straight cable) are used purely for listening to my music. One phrase comes to mind about these cans: O MiE GaWd!I currently own these and the Beyerdynamic DT-770 pro (80 ohm), and have owned everything under the sun from Bose’s headphone offerings; except their noise-canceling variants, although I’ve heard those as well. The M50’s overall are the best sounding period that I’ve heard yet. They sound so ridiculously good that I can’t even imagine if I need, let alone want to hear more expensive offerings.Highs 5/5 – Imagine a dedicated tweeter per cup. The highs are PERFECT. Sirens, cymbals, piano notes, you name it comes in crystal clear with a pristine pitch. No harshness or fatigue comes with it. No roll-off or sibilance either, even if you crank it up to stratospheric levels.Mids 5/5 – Like 2 miniaturized,…

One of the best headphones under $100 I own a pair of Grado SR80 for years using a Grado headphone amplifier in my office. The Grado serves me well except it is not the most comfortable pair of headphones. The other problem is the open design which leaks out sound which may disturb my officemates.I have been searching for a replacement on and off for a while. Finally, I read enough reviews and jumped on eBay and scored a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50 for under $100 shipped.Without burn-in, I would say these compare really well (at par) with Grado SR80. Although I think the sound stage presented by SR80 is wider may be due to the open design. M50 with the closed back design seems a tad closed in. But, nevertheless, the sound right out of the box is really good.I can say a good pair of headphones can certainly beat loudspeakers that cost 10x even 20x. My Dunlavy SCII with Velodyne DD15 will shy away in comparison with M50. Very neutral and detailed sound stage. The fitting is a…
