How would you compare the M50x's with the HD518's?

The HD518's are a cheaper,but what about the sound quality?

I'm hoping to get a pair of these soon. I could really use some good monitoring headphones.

Has anyone heard the M40x? I am looking for a more neutral sounding headphone. I have some good headphones with a bass bump. I assume the M50x would be similar? Should I stick with the M40x or change my pre-order to the M50x?

I wouldn't class these as real 'monitors'

I got these instead of going out and partying all spring break and i couldn't be happier the sound is relatively neutral they are not flat by any means but if you are looking for your first pair of headphones to move into audiophilia these are a terrific transition phone for those just starting out coming from the land of $30-$60  headphones that are bass heavy or just wanting to get some real quality headphones for the price i have noticed a rather large change in sound over the burn in so far all for the better bass has become smoother highs cleaner and mids clearer. i will post again once i hit 50 hrs of burn in im around 20 now

They're good headphones but definitely not flat enough for my preferences. I'd like less bass. I don't know if they'd be the best for monitoring but they should be fine. There are different headphones that do different jobs.

I'd say for monitoring the shure srh840 or sony mdrv6 is a much better choice

It would be nice if an Audio-Technica rep could chime in here. After I get my M40xes in. I will test them for a few weeks and report back. According the the AT website, the M40xes are supposed to be the "flat" version of the M50x.

I have had Sony MDR 7506s for years and used them for monitoring. Very solid phones, but they are not flat in their response  in any way, shape, or form.  I can see where any of the M line would be quite suitable for monitoring. Personal taste. I find the ATH-M30 as a better monitoring phone than the 7506s when driven by a computer or guitar amp like the Vox Tonelab. YMMV.

I got the black m50x a few days ago - i needed a pair of monitor closed back headphones to mix with (Logic Pro X) while riding a bus to work - the etymotic IEM i have dont really do low end that much (unless you really jam that sucker in your ear) and while I have a pair of HD650's they obv dont fit in a bus environment.

 

Being a bass player I also needed to hear bass - HD650's certainly dont have excessive bass & while I feel they are pretty accurate are not great for tracking.

 

So far I love the M50x - its got bass you can feel as well as hear.  I'll test them on the bus ride in tomorrow, they feel like they have pretty good isolation.

 

 

psyched!
