Let me review the over ear closed back wired headphones Audio-Technica ATH-M50x vs Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO and hope it's worth it.
The impedance of Beyerdynamic is 16, 32, 80, 250 Ohm vs Audio-Technica’s 38 Ohm. The frequency response of the first is 5Hz-35KHz, and 15HZ-28KHz in the latter model, though it won’t affect sound perception in the majority of cases.
The total harmonic distortion of Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO vs Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is 0.3% vs 0.2%, and the sensitivity difference is 3 dB (99 vs 96 dB).
The highs of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x seem to be even too detailed that is great for audio monitoring but may seem too sharp and tiresome for amateurs. Bass is distinct but not emphasized. Mids have a decent reproduction but average.The represented Beyerdynamic headphones produce a more natural harmony of lows, mids, and highs.
Unlike Beyerdynamics, the soundstage of Audio-Technica’s model is very narrow, though, the imaging is clear and I can feel the direction the sounds are coming from. The noise cancellation reduces about a half of ambient noise.
I find Audio-Technica ATH-M50x vs Beyerdynamics DT770 PRO more portable for its foldable ear cups flipping backwards while the latter does not provide that flexibility. However, Beyerdynamics wins in the comfort of the cups padding made of soft microfiber unlike cheap foam of Audio-Technica’s.
Both models represent robust plastic and metal headband with a removable leather padding. A detachable cable of 50x is better for portability than non-detachable one of DT770 PRO. The weight of Audio-Technica vs Beyerdynamics again wins 75 g for portability (285 g vs 360 g).
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is better headphones in this comparison. Check Audio-Technica ATH-M50x price
