The ATH-M50s are a middle-of-the-road set of over-ears that offer comfort, decent sound quality and a fairly rugged exterior for a price that won’t break the bank. While they aren’t going to compete with the high-end studio headphones reviewed in the past, these cans are a decent buy if you want to take them into the outside world. quote
