5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Headphones July 2 2011
By Ron
As my first pair of higher end headphones, I am very impressed with this product. They look great, they are very comfortable, and the sound quality is fantastic.

The box contains the headphones themselves, along with a screw-on 1/4 inch adapter and a leather carrying bag. The headphones are quite aesthetically pleasing, appearing very professional while still maintaining a sense of style, which I like very much. They are made of mostly plastic (though it feels very durable and high quality), with some leather material on the ear and head padding. The headphones are a little bit heavy to wear, but it's nothing serious and are easy to adjust to over time. They were also quite tight to my head upon first use, but after a couple hours of use, they loosened up and become more comfortable. Overall, they are quite comfortable. However, because of their closed earcup nature, your ears may become sweaty after prolonged use in a moderately warm area. Also of note, there are two versions of these headphones - a straight cord and a coiled cord. This is the COILED CORD version, which Amazon.ca does not state directly. I prefer the coiled over the straight, because the straight cable is very long and can tangle easily. The coiled version is much shorter (and cooler looking in my opinion), while still allowing for extra length if you need it.

I found the sound quality to be stellar right out of the box. Being studio monitor headphones, they produce a neutral, but very accurate and precise sound. This makes them great for monitoring/mixing music, but they are also fantastic for listening to music as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars One is not enough March 9 2014
Verified Purchase
This headset has ruined my life. Let me tell you my story.

I ordered this headset after recommendations by friends and having tried it before myself.

The first odd thing was that it arrived the day after it was order, instead of the 6+ business days that were expected. Good thing, right? Just wait and see.

As I unboxed it and listened to the entire discography of Pink Floyd in FLAC, I had violent orgasms that could not be surpressed. Worse, I couldn't stop listening to the crystalline sound that came from the headset. It was like a drug.

A few days in Brazil and $300,000 later, and I now had 5 pairs of ears along with some nerve re-wiring. Naturally, I bought the 4 headsets that my friends had - I could not wait for even a single shipping day - and I simultaneously played in every ear my entire library.

Today I am fed by a machine as I am unable to perform basic tasks that would require me to remove my headsets.

100% recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Sound! Poor build quality Oct. 23 2013
Verified Purchase
-Sound is very neutral(which is a good thing)
-It puts off a decent bass without overpowering the medium and trebles like Beats do.
-Best headphone under 200$ by far.
-However my particular headset eventually start to destort, and after a closer look i found that there was a dent in the left speaker. Talked with customer support, and i wasnt able to return it, but i was able to buy a separate speaker to reinstall for 30$. now it sounds great when i just bought it.
-Incase you didnt pick this up, you can easily replace the speakers. All you got to do is re-solder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great entry-level Audiophile headphones June 11 2014
By dardawk
Verified Purchase
I have these and the Sennheiser HD518s. I'm really happy with the 518s, but they were too leaky to use in my office. The ATH-M50's sound stage is not as large, but other than that their sound is amazing. They're probably even a bit clearer in the mids than the 518's.

Because they're closed, they don't leak sound; however, it also makes for a lot tighter of a fit. The 518s are more comfy for sure. I recommend them if you need a nice over-ear, closed pair of cans. If you don't mind open headphones (sounds leaks in and out) then I would recommend the HD 518s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crisp Clean Sound Dec 6 2012
By Theo
Verified Purchase
+Great Lows and Mids, perfect for electronic music. No portion of the frequency response is overpowering.
+A large section of the cord is coiled to reduce the visible length (the straight cord version is something like 10ft.)
+Highly ajustable

-After extended periods (>5hrs) of continuous use, your ears will get very warm.

These are by far the best headphones that I have owned and they are a great start for anyone looking for entry audiophile gear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy: complete review. Dec 11 2013
Verified Purchase
Ok, let me first start by saying, when I got these headphones in the mail, I was very disappointed, considering the reviews I saw. I thought, "there is no way that breaking these in will bring them up to standards". Boy, was I wrong.

-The headphones have excellent sound (very even and controlled), although a bit bass lacking if you are a basshead (although that is not what they are made for, and you can hear all the bass just fine).
-The headphones are extremely comfortable on my giant head, and I can wear them for many hours at a time.
-The headphones let me hear sounds in songs I have never heard before, despite listening to the songs hundreds of times.
-The headphones with the coiled cord allow you to tuck in the coiled part into your pants pocket and still have a good amount of straight cord up to your head so you don't look like a fool in public.
-The headphones carrying pouch is very nice leather material.
-The headphones have an excellent port for both an amp or a 3.5mm headphone jack. The only problem is, if you have a case, it might not snap in fully, as the port is very round and flat where it connects. I had to modify my iphone case to match. The port itself is very strong and I cant see it breaking in the next century.
-The cord is standard, and I don't think the coil weighs it down as much as people say, it doesn't bother me.
-The headphones are very sturdy, and despite their extremely flexible design, do not feel like they will snap anywhere with regular use. There are some weird positions you can put them in that might render them more vulnerable to snapping, but that is a very small subset of people that need that functionality anyways.
