Labelled as ‘Monitor Headphones’, Audio-Technica’s intention is clear for the ATH-M50s, which feature swivel-mounted ear cups to minimise the profile.
The oval-shaped pads cover your ears completely for a very useful degree of isolation both in and out, while the partially coiled lead gives you plenty of freedom of movement. The lead terminates in a stereo mini-jack with a screw-on standard jack so you can use the ’phones with pro equipment and electronic items with smaller socketry.
We like: Foldability; good isolation; sound
We dislike: The white finish
The ATH-M50s are loud and vibrant with a well-balanced sound. We’d be worried about getting our white set grubby, but they are available in black.4 Stars
