        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50xMG LIMITED EDITION Professional Monitor Headphones:

        I bought my first pair of m50x's 3 years ago and to this day they are still kicking with better quality than any other headphone in their price range. They have taken a couple hits/drops but I'm surprised at how well they have held up. Never experienced any wiring issues.

        Best headphones in the market for the price.

        By 

        from New York City

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50xMG LIMITED EDITION Professional Monitor Headphones:

        I've bought these headphones twice now. I gave my first pair to a friend who needed them, and the second pair got stolen. I'm about to purchase a 3rd pair because these headphones are just OUTSTANDING. Sound quality is great. crisp highs and deep lows. I've used these for gaming, movies, music, on my PC, and on my phone. They perform great and don't need any amplifying. I've owned the Black ones, then the red ones, and now I'll get the Matte Gray ones because they look dope! I recommend these to anyone. I had the ones that didn't have the detachable cable, which kinda sucked when using them on my phone because the cable would pull the phone off my hand if I didn't hold it tight or weave the cable through my fingers, but that's been corrected with the latest models. For anyone curious about these headphones or wondering if they're good for Monitoring. THEY ARE. If you got a good sound card, you audio files are WAV or FLAC, and you got these, you'll be able to hear every single sound in the song or movie. I also noticed a increase in the range a which I could hear footsteps in FPS games. Since they're capable of reaching such lows, that just gave me a great advantage when gaming. Forever my favorite headphones!

          how long, if any, is the product warranty for the m50x headphones? Will I get the same warranty if I order these exact headphones as opposed to buying them from amazon? (which still is sponsored by audio-technica)

          Are you coming out with a new color soon of your model Headphones Ath-M50x
          I really liked your Brown/Blue one and the Dark Green/Brown one, but they are not available no more. And I'm not a fan of black colors. But I would like to know if there's one in the works to come out soon?

            A:

            The M Series headphones including the ATH-M50x headphones, being designed for professional studio monitoring, will not have consumer headphone features such as an inline microphone and controls available. You may use a third party inline microphone such as the this cable. You may also try the ATH-MSR7 headphones.
