The things we get from the outset. Audio-Technica ATH-M50 professional studio monitor headphones are a great pair of headphones money - and huge headphones-discount monster headphone period.

What makes them great?

Well, for starters, they are carefully crafted, sturdy design, like it propped up, and as time goes on, with a thick line terminated in a heavy responsibility, and enhance the look and feel of the plug. A thick padded earmuffs rotation axis, put headphones fold flat storage, but it is worth mentioning that the simple soft case, they came to essentially just a package.

Their model shows that these monitoring headphones, they look and sound a bit like the headphones, you will find in a recording studio (some people use them for this purpose). Weighs 10.1 ounces, they do not light, but they adapt well, comfortable to wear. Of course, since this is a closed back design of the ear headphones, they will make your ears nice steaming warm days.

Although they do not sound the Bose QuietComfort15 acoustic noise canceling headphones Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones active noise cancellation function of the passive seal from the outside world, they do a good job. No, you do not get the same level of noise reduction, but they are a good alternative QuietComfort 15 headphones person who is sensitive to slight pressure, active noise cancellation - they sound better.

The good: The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones offer excellent build quality and very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. They're also very comfortable and are a relative bargain.

The bad: There's no integrated microphone for making cell phone calls; the bulkier design makes them less suitable for mobile use; and the headphone cord isn't detachable.

The bottom line: The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are among the best available for less than $200, offering excellent sound and build quality.
