      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50s/LE Professional Closed-Back Studio Headphones (Silver):

      These are some of the best headphones for the price on the market right now. I've used the comparable offerings from Sony and Sennheiser, and I really enjoyed the sound in these cans a lot more. After the burn-in period, sound is clear and accurate and a genuine pleasure to listen to.

      Additionally, these are comfortable for all day studio and field work. I use them professionally to monitor audio recording during field video production and later while doing post, and they block out an amazing amount of ambient noise, really letting you concentrate on what you're getting.

      The cable is shockingly long, however, and not replaceable, so if you're using them for more casual listening something with a coiled cord might be a better choice.

      An Amazing Bargain

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50s/LE Professional Closed-Back Studio Headphones (Silver):

        These headphones deliver amazing sound, especially for the bargain price tag. I have a sensitive head and was afraid they might pinch but I have not had that problem. However, they are a bit heavy and are not padded well on top and have found that to be painful. Adjusting the position helps, but that is somewhat annoying. I will keep them though because they sound so great. Wish they would sell something that could be added to solve this issue.

        Delivery from B&H was overnight, even though that was supposed to be standard shipping. I do live in New York, but even then that exceeds my expectations. Bravo!

                Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M50s/LE Professional Closed-Back Studio Headphones (Silver):

                I am not an audiophile nor am I an audio expert. But I am someone who enjoys listening to great sounding music. For the past 5 years I have been wearing Westone UM1 and Shure's (in the ear) I use them mainly for running, airplanes, biking, etc. The are convenient, store easily and great for travel. Well I decided I wanted to try headphones again. My first headphone every was Koss back in the 70's!! I teach at a University and many students have Beats-So I listened to them...Um NOT impressed and for the price-yikes. So I heard about the Audio Technica 50's and for the price they are awesome. When I get home from night class I put them on, turn on some jazz and just wind down for 15 minutes or so. I can't say enough positive things about them, the range of sounds. Mine are not broken in so I can only assume the sound will improve. If you are looking for a solid pair of great sounding headphone which don't cost an arm and a leg and are someone like me who enjoys great sounding music then trust me-buy these. They are well constructed and comfortable to wear (even tho they do get warm)!!

                    I bought this headphone to use at home and so far it is awesome. The sound clarity and the comfort is amazing. I also love the silver color. The headphone is big on my head though and since the cord is straight it's super long. However, if you are like me and don't really mind these two points it's a great purchase.

                      My first pair of "high end" OTE headphones.
                      Did lots of research and compared different brands.
                      Beats by Dre sound great and are built from metal but these sound exactly the same if not better and for less than half the price. The build is plastic but its a well designed plastic with a solid feel.
                      Definitely glad I decided on these! The only thing I would suggest (and this is only being picky) is maybe the next generation have a wire that can detach or wi-fi connection....

                          These gems came well packaged. The head band portion is very sturdy and the ear pieces are super soft. I wear these headphones all day long and they are comfortable. The sound is fantastic and better than some of the higher priced popular headphones. The cord is super long, but I wrapped mine up. The connectors are super sturdy and the headphones come with their own carrying bag. I don't travel with mine so the bag is just fine. The best part for me, outside of the great sound is that the ear pieces swivel so you can flip one up if you want to still be able to hear what's going on around you. I would recommend these to my friends and co-workers.
