I have made a comparison Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC vs Audio-Technica ATH-M50x and found out that the difference is not only the existence or not of an audio cable. Actually, they both have one but Sennheiser headphones can also be used as a wireless device. These appliances are closed back and have an over-ear wearing style.
The impedance rate is important for real audiophiles. Audio-Technica ATH-M50x has 38 Ohm of impedance while the wireless pair of headphones has only 18 Ohm. The frequency response is also quite different since Audio-Technica ATH-M50x works within 15 Hz - 28 kHz and Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC — 18 Hz - 22 kHz.
The sensitivity in the first case is 99 dB and it is not as much as the second device has — 113 dB. The headphones made by Audio-Technica do not have a battery but the ones from Sennheiser can be used up to 19 hours after 2 hours of charge. Also, the second device has free-battery listening mode and supports aptX and Bluetooth.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50x vs Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC has a very detailed, balanced sound with tight bass. There is a slight emphasis on notes in the lower frequencies.
Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC has an excellent bass. High-bass, responsible for warmth is flat and well-balanced.
A big benefit of Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC is its NoiseGard active noise cancellation.
The wired device`s weight is 285 g while the wireless one is only 238 g heavy. Surprisingly, they both are foldable. These headphones have an adjustable headband and come with a detachable cable.
Only Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC has a built-in microphone while the other device does not have a microphone at all. The length of an audio cable of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is 3 m which is really impressive as the cable of Sennheiser is only 120 cm long.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x is better headphones in this comparison. Check Audio-Technica ATH-M50x price
