serious question, WHY do you have both a microwave and 2 cheerios on display?
Andro K (4 days ago)
*Cheerios.*

I chose the beats pro over the comparable bose model because of the build. Metal lasts longer than plastic. If bose had a set made of metal I would pick those instead.

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...

Beats is shit
Junho Son (13 days ago)
Actually now the Beats Pro is about 8 times cheeper.
Mike P (13 days ago)
@Junho Son - No it is not. Look on Amazon. A wired Beats Pro set runs $398.

Headphones r good for what they r meant for, however u can’t compare these 2 cause they aren’t really the same at all.

For the price of beats you can get true audiophile headphones.
Mike P (13 days ago)
@Baron von Hindenei - Yeah but the people buying these do not really care much about accurate audio reproduction. These are a fashion item that will probably be worn around their neck 99% of the time.

I think its pretty obvious that pretty much everything beats.. beats.

Carefully take apart both. Swap the internals. Best of both worlds.

I've seen people that instead if putting the headphone cup behind one of their ears, they push it forward so it's like right next to their eye and it looks really dumb.

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.

I'd get the Sony 1a ,this review was done five years ago and the 1a's are so much better

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😁

They have bose & sennheiser where i live, but they don't have the great headphones in your video. How am I suppose to be able to get 'not so expensive yet sound brilliant' headphones now?

I wonder how many beats fanboys came to the comments section to look for people backing them up and realized they were outnumbered by the truth

to be honest the beats don't even look that cool. I love the m50's design with the silver ring and black minimalist logo.

This video was so helpful!! Because before I only knew beats headphones which I though would be very but hearing this comparison really helped!’

punch line " if you don't care about sound, like at all, but you've seen some celebrity wearing them AND you have too much money to throw - buy beats"?

No need for this video. We all know Audio-Technica is better, it's obvious.

The m50 isn't even wireless...
teknowafel sam (4 months ago)
If you want the m50s to be even more comfy, you should get the brainwavez pads and that also improves the soundstage.
SuperNova PG3D (4 months ago)
Hahaha the one perk he picked out about the beats, Audiotechnica fixed in the M50x

You know why? Because beats is owned by apple

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

Darren B (5 months ago)
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

actually adjustable earcups is very useful and comfortable feature for djing.
Steven Johnson (5 months ago)
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.

Beats are for Rap and hip hop. Not that Pussy music shit. Thats why Beats dont have sound clarity like other headphones their focus is bass

With Beats, your paying 2x for the name. You want to be recognized for style...they are fashion accessories. My advice: by the AT's and steal the Beats.

Am I the only one who thinks that the ath-M50x looks way better than any beats headphones Just my opinion Please don't kill me
Hope Hurteau (8 months ago)
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.

Fucking Cheerios in the backround
