ATH-M50s Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (with straight cable)
Good sounding, good looking headphones.
Headphones sound great, clear treble. The bass is very much there and it is very smooth sounding, great. The mids are clear as well. They are better than I had expected, I would gladly pay $200 or more for these. I mainly use them for listening and producing and they work well, I also usually just leave them plugged in and use them for gaming as well and they have worked there too. Only thing I can say bad about them is that the cable is a bit too long for some things, like mobile listening or listening, say, with an iPod in public.

Great Quality, only one con
This product has surpassed any expectations of mine. The audio quality rivals any other top brand and price is reasonable for the overall quality. One con is that that the cord is too long for casual listening in public.

I don't usually write reviews for products that I buy but for these i feel I must. They have amazing sound quality, far surpassing any that I have previously tried. If you are looking for a great pair of headphones, here they are.
The cord is a little long, which is good, but it is slightly annoying for casual listening.

Simply the best
These headphones are simply the best headphones I've ever heard. I always make it a point to try out new headphones and so far nothing has come close. I recently moved to Europe and was not able to bring my headphones with me, due to the bulk, but I love them so much that I decided to have them shipped out despite the cost.

As just a casual listener my review may not be the most reliable or professional peace of writing but anyways.
I found the ATH-M50 strait cable headphones to be completely 100% the best headphones I've ever used, owned and seen as long as I've been interested in high quality audio. As a bass head every aspect of bass is important, from high quality and large bass capacity to it being balanced and not overriding all the other sound. The bass is absolutely flawless and doesn't drown out any of the other frequencies, the highs are crisp and not to sharp (I hope that makes sense) and the mids are perfectly balanced. The only problem I had was that they got a little uncomfortable but that was after 6 1/2 hours so I would expect that. Over all ATH you did an extraordinary job and I you continue being the best audio tech company out there.

I have had these cans for at least a year and all I have to say is WOW!! I absolutely LOVE these headphones! I use them all the time in multiple environments for multiple purposes; mainly as onstage monitors, but also for casual listening, and when I'm producing.
There is no need to go and buy a pair of active noise canceling headphones with these things.These are my onstage monitors I use when i play guitar at my church and my church plays the music really loud and even if I have a minimal amount of sounds going through these things I CANNOT hear anything outside of these!
I won't hardly listen to anything with my in-ears because the quality of the ath-m50's is just unmatched in anything I've ever heard. I compared them to my friends $300 AKG's and they blew them out of the water! I'm in love with these things! I am constantly recommending them to my friends if they are looking for great headphones. BUY THEM!! YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

best headphones under $200.00
I just got these today and they sound amazing. The bass is very rich, the mids are fantastic, and the highs are soaring! The only bad thing is the cable is like 6 feet. Litterally the only bad thing. overall, these are the best headphones i have ever owned! I own bose, v-moda, and sadly, skullcandy. i am very happy i purchased these. buy these if you are in this budget and you want more bang for your buck.

Sounds Very Accurate
The highs are quite clear, much better than other headphones of the price range, such as the v-mode crossfade lp's. These have very accurate response over a wide range. They present bass well, not obnoxiously, and you can modify balancing easily on your console anyways.
