In terms of build and design, Audio-Technica hit the pin right on the target. Their build is always good enough to stand out among a variety of headphones. But they are not colorful and stylish enough to draw customer’s attention with their looks. They look simple and professional in looks. However, the whole build of Audio-Technica ATH-M50 is plastic, so customers shouldn’t expect anything finest here. But due to the lightweight plastic along with the ear cups soft padding, one can wear them for long listening sessions. Earcups of this model have the capability to rotate at 90 degrees. So while not using them for listening, you can make them flat around your neck. As they are rotatable you can also adjust them to perfectly fit on your ears. It will also help you carry them easily in your bag. You’ll not face any kind of issues with its robustness.

When it comes to sound these headphones sound great for all genres of Music. However, they sound particularly different and amazing when it comes to classical music, expressly in the high notes. You may find that the cushions are so shallow that people around you may hear what you’re listening because the seal is a little disappointing. The bass and trebles and perfectly balanced which gives you the best listening experience.

Audio Technica ATH-M50 is promoted and sold as a monitor headphone. These are absolutely more impartial than something like beats. However, there is still a little weight on notes in the lower frequencies that on the other hand, you will definitely not find on higher-end studio headphones.
