A good pair of top-quality headphones are somewhat easy to find, but you usually end up paying quite a lot for what you get. That’s to be expected, of course, but you don’t always have to shell out an arm and a leg to get a really great pair of headphones. Right now the ATH-M50x professional studio monitor headphones from Audio-Technica are on sale for just $149, which is a savings of $90 off the original cost. While audio quality is definitely one of the strong points of these headphones, they’re also extremely comfortable and versatile thanks to the pivoting earcups. This allows the wearer to tilt the earcup off the ear in case they need to hear something or someone, perfect for if you’re using these in a studio or if you DJ.
These are a wired pair of headphones and as such come with a few different cable types you can use, including one coiled cable, and two straight cables, all three of which are detachable from the headphones. The earcups and headband are also made for comfort and longer times of wear, so you shouldn’t have issues with them feeling irritating. When you’re done using the headphones they also pack up nice and neat for a more compact storage, making them easy to carry around for travel.
