Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones

I bought the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones [1] (with Coiled Cable) from one of Amazon [2]‘s Black Friday’s lightning deals as well. Got it for US$99.99 (S$126) including shipping because it also qualifies for AmazonGlobal Saver [3].

In Singapore, the ATH-M50 is retailing for S$238, so you just saved S$112!

Specifications

From a non-audiophile point of view, the ATH-M50 sounds much better with a stronger bass, but it is a little bulky to be brought around when compared to the Bose AE2i.

In terms of comfort, the Bose AE2i wins hands down. After wearing the ATH-M50 for a few hours, your ears will start to get warm, you will start to feel the weight of the ATH-M50 and you can feel the pressure of the ATH-M50’s clamp around your ears.

Despite both the AE2i and ATH-M50 are not noise cancelling headphones, both of them managed to block out most of the noises.

I am currently using the Bose AE2i Audio Headphones [4] in the office, I think I will be swapping it with the ATH-M50 thought it is not as comfortable but I like the sound quality!

I wonder is it me or the included carrying pouch seems to be a little small and does not fit the ATH-M50 well. Maybe it is really not meant to be carried around!
