It’s been a few months since I replaced my refurbished Beats by Dre headphones. Whether refurbished or new I will never buy another one of those headphones. They are overpriced and it doesn’t even sound good. That’s why I bought refurbished just to try it out. Never again!
I’ve been hearing great things about the Audio-Technica ATH-M50 all over the internet. Lots of good reviews. They had a sale on them during Black Friday 2012 and decided to try them out. They are great! Not too heavy and I got comfortable after a few days with them. They isolate the noise and the music is nice and clean. I got the coiled wire version.
It comes with an adapter for the cord and a leather bag. They fold nicely so they fit in the bag. I would highly recommend these and try them out. You can find them for around $100 sometimes – much cheaper than similarly looking Beats and personally, they perform better.
