The 6 Best Podcast Headphones - Spring 2022
Even though they're closed-back headphones, their passive soundstage still seems natural, and sound seems to be coming from speakers placed in front of you, which can help if you're mixing tracks. They also have a sturdy build with a coiled cable that can help reduce tangles when you're moving around. There's a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter included that you can use to connect them to a mixer
Good headphones, BUT NOT FOR CASUAL/FUN LISTENING.
This is going to be a long review, so try to hang in there and read to the end, I promise it's worth it! Alright, so chances are, you're looking at buying the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x most likely because of one of three reasons: A friend that has never listened to genuinely good headphones before is ...
The M50X gets a lot of hate here, but if you like them, that’s okay! Good luck with your setup!
You're not alone and I would expand this distinction to not only factor in popularity but functionality as well.

I bought the ATH M50x and genuinely, GENUINELY hate them. Worst headset I've ever bought.
I'll secomd the m50x. Bought cause they were highly recommended at the time but I couldn't stand the sound. Harsh treble and the bass was awful
I got the Audio-Technica ATHM50XBT Wireless Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones, Black recently and I love them so far.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x review: The best-sounding headphones under $200 get (slightly) better
ConclusionAlthough it's a shame Audio-Technica doesn't include a cable with a controller and microphone with the ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones, that probably won't bother audio purists. You do have to pay more for than for the ATH-M50 model, but the ATH-M50x version has a lot to offer, with excellent performance and a slightly more comfortable fit to go along with the detachable-cord system and extra cords.
FWIW, I absolutely LOVE my Audio Technica ATH-M50x headphones. They're over the ear but not noise cancelling. They sound absolutely incredible. I got mine on Amazon for around $149
All I can say is try to pass on the ath m50x, I've had mine for about 6 or 7 years now and personally have grown to hate them. They're just all around bad.
