awesome phones, very impressed and great price for the sound

I researched headphones for over 2 weeks over the net as well as hitting local stores selling them. My criteria was under $200.00 as the limit. I wanted the best b s nd for the buck. Heard most mid to high end offerings from AKG, Sennheiser, Bose, Phiaton, vmoda, etc. I wanted durability but of course awesome sound without bass being the #1 feature. I listen to everything but mostly trance 90% of the time. Also interested in learning to mix so need to doule as DJ sets. These are great with the right balance of bass and vocals with highs not being too up there.

So far I've been super happy with them.

Excellent Entry Level Hi Fi Headphones

Compact for an over ear headphone with folding capability. Comfortable enough for long listening sessions. Clear, well articulated highs with no harshness. Accurate bass without booming. Benefits from an amp/dac unit. After 20 hours or so of break-in, these really shine. Love 'em.

great value

great headphones
i took the time to look at headphones online before purchasing and found multiple sources saying that these are the beast headphones you can get for under $200, and they were right they have great sound along with a slim body and are very comfortable.
i have had them for a few months and dragged them everywhere and they still look like they did strait out of the box that is very impressive these headphones are built to last!
there are only a few things i would change about these headphones and they all have to do with the cord, first of all for me this cord is just too long and ends up bunched in a tangled ball most of the time i would like to see the option when buying of having a shorter cord for those of us who just buy these to listen to music off a laptop or phone and don't need the reach that this cord provides however i am very impressed with the thick strong quality cable that they provide, and my second and only other problem witch is more just a personal preference is i would like to have a removable cable, this would allow people to choose quality and length of the cord and this way if the cord witch for me is the most fragile part of any headphone got damaged in anyway it would be easily replaceable with any other cord
pros: price, size, sound quality, build quality,
cons: cord length, permanent cord

Impressive headphone

Tested other headphones under $400.00 range of different brands when I was at Best Buys shopping for other things and I was not impressed. I have a headphone that puts out bass ( battery powered subwoofer) with decent mid and highs but that has been put aside for a spare. That's because I got the Audio Technica ATH-M50's. After reading all the good reviews at different sites, I wanted to find out what the fuzz is all about. The first time I heard it, plugged into my computer and my mid priced receiver, I thought it needed a slightly more bass since the mids and highs are so precise and clear. So, I paired it with the Audioengine D1 headphone and Wow! It's like Frankenstein woke up after getting a jolt of electricity! With a fairly decent amp, this headphone shines above the rest. There is something magical about this headphones and highly recommend it. That is probably because bass, mid-range and treble all blend cohesively as one. Bought another one for my son after listening to mine.

Great Value

Excellent product and value, in my opinion. Shuts out background well. Excellent sound, though I am not an audiophile. I purchased this product based on reviews on the web.

A beautiful sound

M50S is very comfortable to wear, when I listen to the song, the sound is very elegant, if it is in place, the low-frequency although somewhat lacking but can accept!

Best value

I use this set with my electronic drum set and play cd's with them at the same time. They handle the combined sound and it's fantastic. I would recommend the ATH-M50 S to a friend.

Great headphones

These headphones sound better than my sons noise canceling Headphones (a popular brand) that he got for Christmas. He wants to return them and get these instead. Can't say that I blame him.

Top tier budget headphones

These are one of the best headphones you can get in this price range. The only gripe some people might have is that the cord is 6 or so feet long. They can get quite uncomfortable after some time but keep in mind that I sit by my computer from 8-15 hours a day.

As for the actual site's shipping, it was fast, free, and on time.
