Extremely balanced headphones. Punchy lowend, mostly because the pads are extremely close to your ears. Velor pads and a nice amp (such as the Fiio E10k), and you'll get a warm feeling that compares to a good pair of open-ears.

Great headphones, just rarely used as the speakers work just fine.

I'd definitely recommend the ATH-M50x, picked them up off Amazon a while back for $150. They're very solid entry level to mid-range headphones. The sound seems very close to neutral and very clear overall, though I usually personally use warm, bass-leaning headphones, so I may not be the best judge of balance.

They're fairly comfortable, a bit heavy, but the padding is pretty soft and good enough to make up for that. If you come from owning some extremely comfortable and light headphones like something from the Sony MDR-XB line, you may find the padding more lacking.

We picked them up since my girlfriend's an aspiring musician and will most likely be using them while recording and editing her own tracks, and I'm satisfied that they'll perform for the job. They aren't wireless, but they come with a great variety of wires in that regard, which was very nice.

These are the best headphones I have ever experienced in my life. They are AMAZING! I recommend them to everyone, they are great for all purposes, listening to music, gaming, chatting, everything. Very sound proof, very high quality sound, and nice and comfy.

Bought them right when they came out 100% fell in love with them. Replaced the ear pads in February of this year. Overall experience with them 15/10 would recommend

Pretty good level of clarity and detail with these, somewhat spacious sound, and great function and feel. They aren't as boomy with bass or deepness as I want, but overall a pretty decent headphone for the price.

Great entry-level audiophile headphones that don't break the bank. No amp required to drive these, my iPhone even does pretty well with these. I added some white velour earpad from Massdrop, which makes them extremely comfortable, even when wearing them for long periods of time.

They sound fantastic!

My review won't do justice, so just google a review lol. They are amazing headphones and they fit my preference perfectly (extra bass).

A trusted brand brings trusty headphones, never had an issue with these and I don't think I will. Sound quality is just as reviews promised.
