Awesome, professional and very versatile headphones !
Andre Six, 10.04.2020
As a music producer and audio engineer, I tend to spend hours every day wearing headphones and these have been my choice since the day I got them.

Short version : very comfortable, good separation, lovely yet balanced and transparent sound, useful cable options, great price.

Long version : these are being used in my studio for all professional audio tasks.

In tracking/recording, their comfort and separation make it easy to use them for hours on end and without almost any spill into the mics.

In mixing and post-production, they are my main tool besides my monitors and I have mixed full productions using only these, when needed. As with all monitoring situations, they do require a bit of learning of their sound and are a bit on the "gentle" side, so make sure you have something else to check the aggressive/sibilant sounds in your mixes.

And for personal use, they come with a short, mini-jack only cable, perfect for running, listening to things on the go etc. In addition, they are quite sleek and good looking, unlike a lot of other studio options :).

Good Product
Radoslaw L., 26.03.2018
Probably one of the best headphones in the price range.
The M50x are comfortable enough but after a longer while can get heavy. They are also quite a tight fit but seem very sturdy, and are well sound sealed, so you do get the full potential of the sound coming through your ears.
Sound-wise; The headphones are little bit bias on the low end, so if you are looking to use them as a mixing monitor, be aware of the sound spectrum that can be a little bit over the top on the bass side.
I feel that the high end of the headphones response is a little too compromised and can be drowned out , as the low range seems to take over a lot. Having said all that, the headphones do handle extremely well and you can really push them with high volumes and there are no issues whatsoever.
I would give it a 7.5/10 overall score mainly because of the handling and built quality. If you are looking for a good pair of headphones, the 50x are a good way to go without busting the bank. Other alternative is the Sennheiser HD 380 pro, which are slightly more delicate, but yet very comfortable, with a little bit more of the high end range and more realistic perspective one the Mid/low range, but then again not as sturdy and feel quite fragile.
I hope that helps.

Overhyped
Mr. Tee, 30.03.2020
I bought these headphones for their superb review all over the internet just to be disapointed.
There is very prominent 10khz peak (which sadly can be found on many other headphones too) that was unbearable and would result very muffled mixes unless compensated greatly.
Midrange sounds like its veiled behind and does not have clarity in it.
Bass there is plenty, and for music listening it sounds good on the low register, but for any critical work, better look elsewhere.

For music listening for someone that is used to peaky highs, these can deliver. For someone who wants balanced sound, nope.

For comfort side, you should be wary that although the cans are otherwise light and does not squeeze, ears are prone to hitting the inner mesh and could cause irritation in longer sessions.

Very good product!
but if you want to play in silence without people hearing you, go with in-ear monitors.
With half volume up on my pedal board everyone can hear the sound out of these headphones.
