    - How long have you use it?

    > Yes, Shure SRH range, Seinheiser HD25 and ATH-M35

    Excellent monitoring headphones

    I use it for almost a year before I tried sony, the akg, the grado beats (but it should burn them when making music).

    What I like about this headset is its accuracy (perfect for EQ, reverb work etc etc).
    Neutrality (all spectrum is well transcribed. Its strength, its very nice cord that stretches over several meters.

    What I like the least ... Well I do not know. Apart from its mouth can be dj headphones that could pass for a technics headphones.

    I use this headset for monitoring Mao. It is very nice to wear, perfectly fits my big head (haha). Over time it is very tiring for the ears. After it remains a headphone necessarily so after two or three hours it starts to warm up a bit but it's still excellent.

    For headphones in this price range, yes it breathes soldité and robustness. Its connectivity is not detachable, but when you know you are gaining audio quality, that's all bah benef.
    For my case, since I have less than a year, no it is not degraded.

    So here we finally enters the heart of the matter. For 150 euros a headset sound quality is exceptional! Almost perfect balance, very good bass (although I have read that some people find them a bit forward, which is not my case), mids are sublime, especially in the low tops, and treble do not attack each ear hair while remaining detailed ultras. As for the stereo, she is right.
    Its noise level is excellent, it can really send the wood. Only downside, it lacks serious low noise.
    Rated insulation is not a bullshit thing with reducing external noise, so you get still a little extérieux. But it's a studio headphones, not a nomad headphone to ride around town.

    Good headphone for big heads.

    headphone comfortable, very convenient thanks to its articulation to the mix in one ear, beautiful but too big for my little head.

    Pretty solid headphone, just foams already died after six months of intensive use. And finds that black on the net.

    Good quality, good insulation.

    I have not tried a lot of models before it, but I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the product!
    I use it for a few months and am not ready to part with.
    If there was one thing to remember, THE sound! Which I think is the most important thing for a headphone.
    The only negative for me, ears that heat after a certain period of use, but hey, I say, difficult to do otherwise with a closed headphone ...
    In conclusion, a very good price / quality ratio, in any case, for me.
    To buy the closed eyes and ears wide open ;-)

    I use this headset to my home to play the guitar for hours without disturbing neighbors. The materials used are so comfortable, it is very ergonomic, fleece headband, beautiful design, and a super twisted cable!
    Just one point removed for extended wear that gives a little warm to the ears, but hey, this is a closed headphone!

    headphone looks very solid, I do not have to back on this point, using it only for a few months ... But so far, it's perfect!
    The latter has a 3.5 screw adapter / 6.3, which allows you to use your smart phone or mp3 favorite!
    Comes with a beautiful white bag for transport.

    Sound, just a killer! I wonder if I do not prefer the sound of my amp ;-)
    Very good balance of sound, from clean to saturated.
    Completely isolated from outside noise and very quiet for people nearby.

    Used for two years.

    + The precise, which makes you want to listen to his entire club!

    - Low frequencies a bit bland at low volume

    In any case, what is certain is that if he suddenly makes the soul, I redeem the same!

    Despite the presence of plastic in the joints, a solid feel spring. The finish is excellent for a headset of this price, the cable seems sturdy and the outlet is very good. Strength guaranteed! (A good thing when you know it has no detachable parts ...)
    Another advantage: the 6.35mm adapter that screws in 3.5mm connector.

    Specific acute and slightly aggressive.
    Clear mediums, sometimes slightly cold.
    Nice bass, not invasive and does not saturate, a little light at low volume.

    Good insulation.

    month I use this headset

    I had an audio technica ath M40fs who broke then lol 7506

    The pros:

    - Perfect neutrality
    - Comfort
    - The stereo
    - Work for mixing and equa
    - Light headphone does not hurt to crane
    - Connector that screws

    the -:

    - Bass down low well
    - Cord a little short
    - Adaptation time

    very good value for money, I bought it at its world € 149

    I remake that choice eyes closed

    I had a 7506 lol, I honed my mixes on headphones before making a bounce on my Adam A7X, I found the tiring lol aggressive in the high mids in the long run and with a significant lack of low despite that the mdr 7506, I was looking for a headphone monitoring completely neutral after reading opinions on the inevitable HD 25 and AKG, I'm tired and I discovered the audio technica ATH-M50, I bought a few eyes closed but I still read all the technical details on its website.

    I plugged the headphones into my ex ua 25 and ZE SLAP neutral perfect with this headset is surgically equalize against it drops very low, I rediscovered my mixes stérepo image is breathtaking, I started thanks jeff buckley, III sides to very story of extrem and dark side and breakfast in america by a warm and clear against his really need time to adapt to find its footing and the capture.

    must grind this headset I've put nearly 50 hours into little pink sound and alternating the massive attack and the difference is obvious.

    the headphone looks really solid plastic is saying quite solid and upscale

    not detachable connectors and so much better that way no parasites

    I do not know I've had a month I can not say that its performance degrades a day will update later.

    Audio quality: very good in its category compared to 7506 lol this is the day and night, an amazing spatial, bass down very low acute well controlled it gives a lot to the skull, respects the stereo image signal.

    impressive sound level I put the master of my ua25ex only 4

    it is a closed headphone isolation level is really good to mix it is comfortable for the noise and especially to record guitars and the sound of the headphones is very little audible outside

    Following a test published Audiofanzine on, I was tempted by this headset, there are more than 2 years.
    I was pleasantly surprised by the overall result of this headphone that I have never done anything stupid when I used to mix small phases (hip-hop and electro mainly).
    Since I use as the Ultrasone Pro 900, which renders really stunning but in terms of price range is much higher.
    Personally, I have a special affection for the ATH M50, because frankly the value for money is execellent

    BUT ... wound down regarding the durability of the materials used to design these headphones. Indeed BTE crumbled and I can change them using contours intended for another headphone because the contours of ATH M50 are not sold by the piece.
    The erosion has now won the arch and frankly it's boring!

    IN summary:

    the +:
    - Value for money
    - Good overall record mixes (it can not make you crash)

    the -:
    - Durability of materials
    - No possibility of parts


    As I like to work some part of my headphone mixes I'll buy a new headphone that will Beyerdynamic DT 770 in addition to the Ultrasone Pro 900 provides that me because I like to switcher headphone appreciate the good and bad points of my mixes. I think that as far as possible to the top loudspeakers is to have a reference pair and another pair to compare.

    This is the first headphone that I bought and I must say that around two years, it remains the only headphone that I paid, that is to say, even if I have no other points comparison with other models, it good enough for me. to the point where I do not feel so far, no particular desire to change, and, although I regularly buys his gear (or frequently).

    I find it very precise correction EQ for example.

    Corrections that I can achieve are not disqualified by other monitoring systems. Whether primarily on computer speakers as studio monitors ... suddenly, when I have to deal sounds, it's almost become a reflex to use the ATH-M50.

    Regarding the recordings, I use it also as closed headphones, but this is more for the recording monitor, because despite all that premium in these moments is of course the music and taken alive!

    Is not at all in my headphones over the music ... ie I prefer to listen or make music to your ears open air rather than feeling in a small space without physical reverberation of a place, I must admit that this model seems quite neutral for reference.

    This is exactly what I expect from a headphone monitoring ... create a certain proximity of the set of frequencies of an audio signal, in order to get rid of all the reverberations natural space. For once, it is at the heart of his.

    He goes very well in my chain of sound, which nevertheless continues to evolve.

    For the price, I find it accessible;

    Anyway, I'm very happy!

    Ear cups feel great

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50Published on 11/24/12 at 22:51
    The ATH-M50S are great for using while recording; they are very comfortable and affordable costing just over 150.00. The sound of them is clean and crisp but still giving enough low end to really feel the music while you are recording. I did not like using these to mix music with because I could never get a good mix with them. But if you use them for monitors while recording they will put you right in the middle of the music and give you that sound you need to excel behind the microphone.
    The padding on the ear cups is truly amazing. They way that they feel sitting on your ears is so comfortable. I have not found many headphones that have ear cups this comfortable. The frequency range on…

    The padding on the ear cups is truly amazing. They way that they feel sitting on your ears is so comfortable. I have not found many headphones that have ear cups this comfortable. The frequency range on these is also very good being at 15Hz-28kHz. Right out of the box you will get a 12 foot long cable which is perfect for reaching across your studio to the vocal booth. They also come with a ¼ adapter but it is standard 1/8. These closed circumaural headphones are perfect for your recording booth. You can even fold them up and take them with you anywhere. They do not come with a carrying pouch or case though which would have been a plus. I just used one of my Shure headphone cases for these and it held them fine. I have used a lot of Audio Technica headphones recently and these are one of my favorite ones they make because of the comfort level. They are not the best ones Audio Technica makes but with them being so affordable and comfortable you can afford to have a few pair of these in your studio. If anything where to happen to mine, I would probably by another pair right away. I am even thinking of buying a back up pair for when I travel.

    Excellent

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50Published on 05/05/12 at 12:56
    To my ears this is the best pair of headphones I have ever used.
    You can absolutely mix with these.
    They are not audiophile phones in any way.
    Try mixing something with these and compare with a mix from your normal set up.
    You will probably be quite surprised.
    At $150.00 there is nothing better.
