They are a little small. For headphones that are supposed to fit over my ears they actually sit on them. The plugs are plastic not very strong and a proprietary fitting. Bound to break and cost a packet to replace.

Really pleased with these headphones, but glad I did some research to make sure they would be right for my monitoring needs due to different voicings between ATH models.

Trying to find headphones without Bass enhancement is like searching for the city of gold – but after comparing specs/accessories and reading the informative reviews below and checking online went with the Audio-Technica ATH-M40X rather than the ATH-M50X and very happy with these headphones, even the box they come in is quality – good all round sound performance for Guitar practice and listening to HiFi – Finally I can hear those mids without annoying unwanted bass!
