Now available for a shade under £120 online, the Audio Technica ATH-M50X
offer some of the best sound you can get at the price. They get you sparky treble and a bit of extra bass, resulting in an all-round energetic and fun sound without the bassy bloat feel you get with some lively, affordable headphones.
They’re essentially ‘style’ headphones, without the style headphone price. Not all of you make love the design, though.
These are DJ headphones at heart, with a tough, bulky frame that values physical flexibility over being small and sophisticated-looking. Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £125 | Amazon.com from $119
