ATH-M50 vs Beats by Dre Pro, plus a mini rant.
Do you know someone who worships Beats by Dre because of the name? Send them this video!
Beats Pro: http://goo.gl/tPBFy
Bought the m50xGM off amazon after seeing this video. After having my pros for 5 years I was super excited. To be honest, they sound pretty comparable.
If you already have Pros, the m50x just isn't worth it. Yeah if I was choosing my first pair I'd go with the m50x, I mean they're 250 bucks cheaper for similar quality sound (again, similar quality, not similar sound). For someone who is already stuck with Pros this isn't really as big of an upgrade as people are saying it is. I'm probably going to return these and look towards something higher-end...
I was open to spend the kind of money for a pair of headphones like Beats Pro but since there is a huge difference in price and not so much difference on performance. Audio Technica it is!!! Besides, your other review said it is the best pair of headphones sub $200.00 Thanks for your review Marques.
Make its just me but I bought those Audio Technica and they annoyed hell out of me...they ear cups moved around too much and felt like a weight on my head...they were most uncomfortable I've ever tried...the sound I didn't think was great but just ok... honestly I haven't yet found the perfect head phones for me😁
I was an uneducated pleb who did not understand headphones, so when my dad gave me a choice of free headphones, I chose the beats cause they were the only ones I heard of. They broke on me twice in a year
My colleague had a pair of beats that sounded horrible - he thought it was the best. Looked like a traffic controller walking into work. It was stolen 🤔 suddenly. I introduced him to 50$ headphones. He hasn't looked back since lol
I bought my M50's based on reviews and I thought Marques did very professional, unbiased reviews. I watched more than one comparison. I had watched other reviewers but it was Marques who sold me on the M50's with my budget. I managed to get an awesome deal that came with the headphones. I got two removable cables one spiral and one straight that is 6ft. the pouch, an extra jack, an iPhone portable charger, a Fiio amplifier, a SanDisk card, and a mini camera bag for $139.oo (BUYDIG online) It's not there at that price now but it could come back. Keep shopping around. It paid off for me.
JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS HEADPHONES AROUND THEIR NECK OR ON THEIR HEAD DOESNT MEAN ITS FOR FASHION. its done when your not listening and you need to hear the outside world. and they dont need to be plugged in if their bluetooth.
I am looking for a headphones and I came along sitting with two pairs - Sony XB950BT and Audio Technica ath-m50x. I know that they are quite different from each other, but I can't make decision on which one to pick. I got the chance to listen to sony, and I am impressed by sound and bass, really enjoyed them, but didn't listen to m50x. I am looking primarily for picking headphones every day and listen mainly a synthwave/retrowave songs. I don't mind the cable, although I never had a Bluetooth headphones before. And to the point why am I asking, because now it is a sale on both pairs, but m50x saves me about 20 bucks, so that's why.
