      tried a bunch of headphones- picked these


      from Queens, NY

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Studio Monitor Headphones:

      the ath-m50's were my pick after trying some sonys, sennheisers, and even bose. Im old school and cant get used to earbuds when i take a walk with my mp3 player. You can hear a lot more music with these. I have been using kenwoods for about 10 years, and at the time they were the phones to have. these ath-m50 are substantially better. More lows, more highs no distortion when i crank up the volume.

      You'll love these cans!


      from Buffalo, NY

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Studio Monitor Headphones:

      I've had my AT ATH-M50's for about a year and honeslty it's the best purchase I've ever made. I'm an on-air/mobile DJ and up until the AT's I had yet to find a comfortable/good sounding/durable pair of headphones. It seems everyday I'm astounded at how good the cans sound in any type of audiio situation and the durability is tremendous (I've used just about every make of phones out there and most have had issues BREAKING after a period of time). I had read all the reviews in the trades and thought I'd take a chance on these and boy I'm glad I did...I think you'll love them too.
