ATH-M50s Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (with straight cable)
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.

Great for headphones!
I bought these headphones to use them as studio monitor headphones and to do my own mixing through. I got much more than I bargained for! The frequency range is astonishing and the sensitivity is superb! The only gripes I have are MINISCULE to say the least. There is sound leakage at high volumes, and they don't have a totally flat response. Both things that are to be expected with headphones, and not major issues. All in all, an A+ product!

Best Headphones I have ever used.
These headphones are amazing. I use them on a daily basis, watching movies, listening to music and playing video games. I have tried many different brands and models and find these to be the best, period. If I had to find any cons about them it would be the lack of a detachable cord and possible the small amount of sound leakage at higher volume levels. Thanks for a great product.
