Maybe they're manufactured differently. I wasn't too impressed with the regular M50x until maybe a month and a half of having them. They sound a-lot brighter with the bass recessing back and the mids and high being more pronounced from when I first heard them. When I first got them the bass was just ridiculous.

This has happened to me with other cans, but looking back I think it's just a matter of perception, I have a decent sized music library and sometimes I go through phases where I'll only listen to a certain genre and I use different cans for a while, going back to another set sometimes is weird because your ears have become accustomed to BIG BASS for an example.

(I couldn't stand my shure srh840 for a while because I spent 2 weeks of just ue 6000)

But I'm sure we all know this already

I think the opening drum part of digital bath is my favorite thing ever to listen to on any headphone

I just got a pair of ATH-50x headphones and am wanting to use them with a 6 inch stereo cable to my iPod shuffle on my collar. I am also wanting the use the V-MODA Boompro mic with them for gaming. I have been communicating with Audio Technica about them making a locking 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm adapter and they kind of dismissed the idea and referred me to their gaming headphones which really don't meet my needs. I don't want a permanently attached mic and sometimes I need different cables, like with the Boompro mic or iPod shuffle. I really think they are missing a big opportunity here.

Anyway, I am buying a variety of 2.5 mm to 3.5 mm adapters and am hoping I will be able to shave them down and carve/melt the necessary groove into them to make them fit. I am also contemplating just grinding the locking nub out of the headphone so any small 2.5 mm cord will fit. Or course, this is all assuming the plug is a 2.5 mm, which it very closely resembles but may not in fact be.

Ii think this adapter has the highest potential at the moment, but others may work better. Hopefully I can find one that will work and update this post with more info. Has anyone else already done this or something similar? I am thinking this will be a better option than a modded ATH-50 because it will not require internal soldering, which I am loath to do. It also wouldn't void my warranty.

This one on Amazon could also be a good option if I grind the locking nub out of the headphones.

Any good ideas?
