We think of the ATH-MSR7
as the classed-up version of the ATH-M50X. They have a more elegant design and a more grown-up sound.
These are full-size headphones, with metal ear cups and a comfortable fit. They’re not quite as pretty as the arch rival Sony MDR-1A
from Sony, which are also worth considering at the price. However, their tuning is a little better to our ears, with better bass control and a little more detail in the mid-range.
We have heard a few suggest they’re a little more tiring, though. So if you’re looking in this price range, be sure to consider the Sonys too. Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £159 | Amazon.com from $249
At time of review the Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 was available for £169.
