Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT vs Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC are two worthy headphones to review. Being over ear closed back headphones with wired and wireless options they both are quite functional and comfortable in use.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT has 20 Ohm higher impedance, 38 vs 18 Ohm of Sennheiser 4.50 BTNC. Its level of frequency response is wider, 15Hz-28KHz vs 18Hz-22KHz. But the sensitivity of Sennheiser is higher with 113 vs 99 dB.
Both headphones have aptX support and light indication.
The battery life of Audio-Technica is twice longer than Sennheiser’s, 40 vs 19 hours, consequently, its charging time is also longer, 7 vs 2 hours.
ATH-M50xBT sounds very clear and clean. I would admit its V-pitched ratio of lows, mids, and highs whereas mids are recessed compared to bright and detailed bass and trebles. That sounds great for mixing and recording though may seem harsh for sensitive ears if you listen just for fun.
The Sennheiser’s model has a very clear sound with a detailed reproduction of each vocal and instrument. They never sound muddy or boxy. The bass is real, neither heavy nor shy. I would call its noise cancelling level very good and that is nice to be adjustable.
The headphones weigh 310 vs 238 g respectively. Both are foldable with a carry case, that make them pretty portable as for the type of large over ear headphones. The headbands are adjustable, however Audio-Technica has a thicker padding. Both have an extra audio cable.
The Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC is better headphones in this comparison. Check Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC price
