Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.
That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.

So while I still wholeheartedly recommend the 50s, especially for extended listening, I think the 70s are a tad more accurate at the bottom end, perhaps down to that interplay with the frequencies we can’t hear – there’s something in that argument after all! So I have myself a new set of reference headphone monitors. I suppose we could just use Tippex on last year’s award for 2015?Read full review
Audio Technica has always promoted its 'M' series of headphones as studio monitors, which means that they have to be neutral and accurate, colouring the sound as little as possible. The ATH-M50x is known for its remarkable accuracy and neutrality, and has earned a reputation as one of the best all-round pairs of headphones around, used professionally and personally the world over. The ATH-M70x has managed to outdo the ATH-M50x, producing a similarly neutral and accurate sound, but adding to it with immersiveness, detail and comfort.
A comfortable design that has the power and durability to meet the demands of performers and DJs.
Not suited for mixing/tracking. Expensive.
