[Amazon Canada] HOT - Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Headphones $174.99

I think it's the lowest it has been a few years.
I don't think I need to tell how good it is.

Ships and sold by Amazon Canada.

I think $250 is what they usually sell at.

fwiw, I found the M50x to be too bright for my taste. I compared these to Sennheiser HD598cs and found the Senns to be more neutral, and much better suited to me.
The M50x was also a tighter fit on my head.

This is all subjective, but might help you if you've tried one but not the other.

I've had the ATH-M50 for years then upgraded to ATH-M50x a year and a half ago. Amazing headphones. If I ever find a song I like through my bluetooth sports headphones, I always use the M50s to really enjoy it at home. I changed the cord out for a Chinese one on ebay with an in-line mic+audio controls, which works great. I don't think I'll ever buy a different model unless I want open cans.

Edit: Get velour earpads. Trust me, it's 100% worth the twenty bucks you'll pay for them.

The 598 has more of an audiophile sound quality, great soundstage and positioning, more air between instruments. Although I did like the aggressive sound of the M50x with its mid bass hump. The 598 and M50 are two very different cans.

It's been this price on Amazon for a while. At least since I've been checking (for the past month).

Weren't they for 150 during prime day?
Yep they were. I was tempted almost to pick them up at that price.

Have these headphones, if you get a pair, I'd strongly recommend changing the pads to make them more comfortable. It will also sound a bit better than the stock pads as well.
