These are monitor headphones. They look and sound like headphones you would find in a recording studio. They weigh just less than 10 ounces. They are not the lightest on the market. However, they fit well on your head and are very comfortable to wear. One drawback is that they may make your ears hot after long usage since they are closed-back design and over-the-ear headphones.
Although these headphones do not have noise cancellation features, they do a decent job of sealing sound.
Considering sound, the ATH-M50XWH Professional Headphones do not have many flaws. The sound is accurate. The stereo imaging is spacious. The dynamic impact is stellar. The bass is very detailed as well as the midrange and treble. The sound seems to be slightly cloudy and veiled if not adjusted properly. As always, sound quality is a subjective matter.
These headphones emphasize treble and have a fuller balance overall. The bass is deep and very accurate. These headphones sound great when listening to music of all genres. This is a great feature because some other headphones only sound good with certain types of genres like acoustic music. The Audio-Technica Headphones sound good with all types of music.

They come with detachable cords and extra cords as well as a carrying case/bag. One thing that would be great is if these headphones came with a controller and microphone. However, for the price you are getting a great value as-is.
