Build is great. My ATH-M50xBT have suffered much abuse at my hands and continue to work GREAT. With the addition of aftermarket oversized ear pads these headphones are able to accommodate my plus size ears. My only real complaint about these headphones is the sound. They are flat. But they are advertised as studio headphones and flat is what they're supposed to be. They don't have ANC but the noise isolation is sufficient for tuning out my wife.

Design

Fit

Over-ear

The fit of the headphones.
weight

310g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
Ingress Protection (IP) rating

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
can be folded

Sound quality

has active noise cancellation (ANC)
βœ–Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
impedance

38 Ohms

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.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
has a neodymium magnet
βœ–Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
has passive noise reduction
βœ–Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
