These closed studio-spec cans provide the sort of sound quality you’d expect from a pair of headphones at least twice the price. The M50x’s produce a crisp, uncoloured soundstage with oodles of bottom end. Their accuracy and balance is remarkable and they’re comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time. And what’s more they come with not just one removable cable, but two. And the cables are nice and long, too, so it’s unlikely you’ll need an extension if playing several feet from your recording kit. If you’re after extremely accurate studio monitoring – and we really do mean accurate – then give them a whirl. Best buy by far.
