14 Reasons why Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is better

than the average

1.Measurably higher high-frequency
28000Hzvs 25213Hz (the average)
vs 100000Hz (best: Sony MDR-1ABT)
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
2.Significantly lower low-frequency
15Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.Vastly lower impedance
38Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
4.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
5.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
7.Can be folded
Yesvs No (70% don't have it)
Folding devices are good for transporting as they take up less space in your bag.
8.Explicitly bigger driver unit
45mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
9.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
10.Has a coiled cord
Yesvs No (91% don't have it)
A coiled cord typically offers more flexibility as it can be extended, and taken outside for example.
