        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50xDG LIMITED EDITION Professional Monitor Headphones:

        I bought it like in july , i have been using it for 2 months . The good things about this headphones is that , the audio is perfect compare to any other brand , like bose , the audio not really that good in bose . I have 1 cons : the pouch , the reason i write this is because the pouch , unlike the m70x , they have a portal bag , which is better than the pouch . The pouch size is a bit small , so its just nice to fit the headphones , but no space for the wire . this is the only cons .

          I have been using it for 2 weeks and it sounds very good and has a rich bass.It is easy to carry and also is good to use in a lot of situation.Also I think it is a very good product overall considering the price.However I would like there to be a slightly bigger carrying bag for better fitting and also replacing the coil cable with the smartphone cable used in the MSR7 since that would make it a lot more convenient.

              What's your warranty on these headphones? I ordered them on 12/31/2015 and they stay at my office, but there is an unbearable static that comes through the headphones making it near impossible to listen to music.

              Thanks!
