When the video started, I was like why does Marques sound like this, and *BOOM* when he comes before the camera, "A KID!"
Tom (15 days ago)
when beats sound like shit compared to average headphones like the mth-50 you just fucking know how bad they are.

Nice necklace. Probably a bit heavy. I'll take the headphones. Bye!
Harry Emmott (19 days ago)
The fact that the M50s, notorious for not being the most comfortable things ever, are more comfortable than the beats really says something.

Why does Beats so expensive? Is it the best of the other brands. Audio Techhnica, Sony, JVC, JBL etc.

I need sturdy headphones...have gone through beats studios, sony mdrxb950BT, all broke after 2/3 years of daily use ....so I'm sold on the beats

The m50's look better anyway

The absolute best headphones at the price of dre beats is the Oppo PM-3s ($400). Absolutely unbeatable in sound, price, and value.

Why buy either of them when there are cheaper and better alternatives on the market. Want the sound signature of an M50/x but better? Get the Takstar Pro 82. Or if you want to keep up with that brand loyalty, the 40x is objectively better than the 50/x but sounds better. Want something like the beats pro? Get a Bose SoundTrue. You'll save yourself 50x.

I found my pair of beats I have a jbl 700 headphones to compare it to and they both sound similar.

Enjoy and trust Marques reviews. In this particular comparison the difference is as subjective as any particular personal experience and taste can be. The true measure now is to pair these side by side and technically measure their audio frequency range, harmonic distortion, and the most ignored factor...impedance. The Audio Technica x model with removable cable is not as superior as to the Beats Pro I have my hands on. For instance I have the authentic Beats Pro, White by Monster and the latest red lil Wane which Is slightly higher sensitive 19 DB s louder and frequency range extended. The quality built of the Beats Pro vise pressuring your head or not is phenomenal and the sound it puts is every penny worth for those who can afford an authentic unit.

And the issue is also the fact that most of the customer base are not audiophiles and are often just fine with a punchy bass, esp. considering the type of music they would listen to. Also: Those people do not have/refuse to look for a comparison basis, and therefore they are happy with their "unintended" mediocre purchase choice!
ianchen9449 (2 months ago)
these headphones are the polar opposite.. m50 is not even analytical, its just bad sounding in general. I haven't tried beats pro but I heard they have punchy sub bass and mediocre sq otherwise

im not sure why someone would buy the more expensive m50x over the on sale ws1100is? i think ws1100is is a better headphone

serious question, WHY do you have both a microwave and 2 cheerios on display?
Andro K (3 months ago)
Todd B (3 months ago)
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.

Audio tech shits on Beats
Gmesh (3 months ago)
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...

@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 (3 months 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.
Baron von Hindenei (4 months ago)
I think its pretty obvious that pretty much everything beats.. beats.

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.

Alex Montalvo (4 months ago)
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.
Dillon Stone (4 months ago)
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"?
vNezcro (6 months ago)
No need for this video. We all know Audio-Technica is better, it's obvious.

The m50 isn't even wireless...
teknowafel sam (7 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 (7 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

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 (8 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
