The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones have a sturdy, well-built frame designed to endure wear and tear. They are considerably cheaper than most of the headphones they are compared to, but their long life and durability also ensure that you can enjoy them for a long time without having to purchase another set of headphones.
Swiveling ear cups are a feature that have almost become standard in professional DJ headphones. Some headphones have a 90-degree rotation, but the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones feature circum-aural ear pieces that swivel 180 degrees. For DJs who like to listen with one ear while performing or monitoring, this is extra helpful and prolongs the life of the headphones.
The two-axel rotation of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones not only works with swiveling and one-ear monitoring, but also makes it easily collapsible and foldable for users who travel frequently and want to conveniently carry their headphones with them.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones do not have an active noise-canceling feature, but the passive sound insulation is good enough and has been noticed by many reviewers and users. Some people are very sensitive to the pressure of active noise-canceling headphones, these headphones provide a similar function without the pressure.
The sound reproduction of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones can be described as natural and refined. They don’t blow up the bass frequencies or drown out the treble and mid frequencies. If you like to listen to a variety of music genres, this pair of headphones will not disappoint. Even though these are closed-back headphones, the music sounds free, not trapped in your ears. Don’t worry about leaking sound, though. These cans do an excellent job of keeping the sound insulated.
The white color of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 DJ Headphones is very stylish. Most headphones you will see on the market today are black or have a black color base, with mostly dark colors. The white minimalist feel of the Audio Headphones will suit you well if you like simple, elegant accessories and fashion.
