Usually $199 for local stock and overseas isn't any cheaper, this price is a steal for people looking for a good value for money reference headphone.

Been looking at these for about a week and this price is the cheapest ive seen it including overseas stock.

    Hi Rep

    Any Deal on B&W P7?

  •  

    Oh damn, great price. I nearly pulled the trigger on a set of HD5500 this morning, this might be a sign to stretch just a tad farther. Hmmmm

  • +5 votes

    I have the m50s, and I find the clamping to be uncomfortable. Not sure if it's the same with this iteration. Something to consider

    •  

      i have beyer dynamic dt-1350 and once you've tried those, you'll find the m50s to be like pillows on your ears

    •  

      The inside of the headband is made of metal and although some people may not like the idea you can actually stretch/bend them to be looser. I did it with mine as they clamped to tight for my big head and it made them much more pleasurable to wear.

    •  

      Yeah I have the limited edition m50s and the metal build is great but does hurt my head most of the time

      What you guys should do is clamp the headphones around the width of the box when you're not using it, this will gradually stretch it out. Now mine is pretty comfortable to wear

    Thanks OP,

    was actually looking for a decent pair of headphones to use and had been eying these for a while. Don't like white or black, too ordinary for me lol

    M40x - https://www.storedj.com.au/products/AUD-ATHM40X
    $119.20

    Apparently these are are just as good going by some quick online reviews, difference is negligible if anyone doesn't wanna fork over $150, but only in black.

      Awesome - thanks for that. eBay buy it now on the MX40X is well over $200 - LOL. Soooo tempted. Need headphones just for home music (Just got my first Led Zep re-release CD's).

      hmmmm… should I jump in….

      If you're really looking to save some coin but get an amazing set of cans, look up the JVC HA-S680, on ebay. Shipped from Japan for around $70, they're terrific. Otherwise the rebranded Brainwavz HM5, sold through Jaycar, are terrific as well:

      • +1 vote

        Thats buggered me. Now I might get lost for weeks reviewing all kinds of headphones, reading all kinds of audio forum posts. The Jaycar ones look ok as they are around 15mins from me and I could grab a set tomorrow. The JVC don't look big enough for my big scollops.

        I might have to resist my ridiculously strong impulse buy urges and calmly look at what I can get.

        Then again, the MX40's look really grouse….

        Can someone say whether headphones that are reviewed as great for monitoring necessarily translate into great for listening to music both acoustic, rock, and live performances? Especially from the 70's?

          after trying several headphones at a store I bought the blue/tan (colour looks a lot better in person) a few weeks ago for $200, $160 is sure a dam good price, worth every penny imo. Sound is clear, crisp and not bass heavy, superb headphones under $200 price range as they sound as good as around the $300 price range. They should be good for type of genre you listen to. The ear cups are a lot softer now since they changed the ear padding from M50s. I own quite a few headphones and these are the most comfortable in terms of long term wear (5 hrs+). Usually when I wear my other headphones about after an hour or two I got to remove the headhphones because they get really hot on my ears, but these are fantastic as I don't need to readjust after a prolong period, but beware that m50x are bigger in size than the usual headphones.

          Thanks for the info. It's appreciated. Bought!

        •  

          well worth the money I'm sure - the tan ones look cracking good. Unfortunately, way over my budget.

          Cheers though.

    WARNING: DON'T GET THE WHITE ONES.

    I have the white ones, they get dirty sooo quickly it is a bit ridiculous.
    I wouldn't hesitate to get the black ones though.

    First the V-Moda M-80 and now these? Crap.

  •  

    I think these headphones (the colour combination) looks ugly.

    If they had kept the blue all over, then it'd look nice

    The AD700X are also the same price:

    https://www.storedj.com.au/products/AUD-ATHAD700X

    I have the AD700, and honestly it's worth getting a pair from a local supplier. The pair I bought were from eBay, and had significant bias in the right can. I actually ended up getting them for free because I raised a PayPal dispute, and the seller didn't respond in time, so the money went back in my pocket and I got to keep the cans. DWI have the AD700X for $139 with free shipping, however as I said above, it's worth getting a pair with warranty (apparently I wasn't the only one to experience the driver bias).

    thnx op, got heaps of white and black headphones, the tan/blues ones will be a treat!

  •  

    Got one, thanks op

  •  

    I bought these from ebay for $200 not even a week ago. What are the chances you rkn i can get them for this sale price instead?

    •

      Depends on who you bought it from and if they have a price guarantee. Credit Card protection can come into play here if you have them on your credit card assuming you paid with a credit card. Not even sure if PayPal would be classed as a credit card purchase.

      I just called the StoreDJ website and they said since i bought it on within the time frame (Sunday 22nd) They were able to give me a gift voucher for the store for $50

    I have had these headphones for about 2 years now. They DO stretch, but they will still clamp strongly on your head and are also fairly heavy. The ear pads are also thick, and in terms of circumference, will not go over your ears. This means that after a few hours, the headphones will feel extremely uncomfortable as they just squash your ears instead of going over them (i have fairly large ears, but it would be the same with any size ears)

    Having said that, the sound quality is top notch. But don't buy these headphones if you're a casual user. I wish I didn't buy into the hype looking back. Get ones that fit OVER your ear and are lighter.

      Reading various other user reviews on these, not everyone has your opinion. No offence to you, but as you said yourself, maybe you have above average size ears. According to my limited knowledge on headphones, these have not been available for two years, only six months.
      http://www.head-fi.org/t/701386/new-audio-technica-ath-m50x-...
      I have a pair of the original M50's and earcups should be the same size as these, just firmer, and they fit nicely over and around my average ears. They do clamp firm, but if you carefully stretch them a little to size, you have a comfortable custom fit. You are correct that they are heavier than average, but they are a large design and are build durable and tough, that is a compromise. Great headphones, but to get the most out of them if using on the go, it's really nice to play them through a headphone amp. Something like a FiiO E6, E07K or higher up the range if you can afford it, good investment in your listening pleasure.

        I'm looking at my pair of M50x's on my desk now. The sound is nice, but everywhere says that the sound quality is limited by the DAC/Amp on my phone/computer. Does the FiiO E6 really increase the sound quality or simply boosts the sound volume? If so, is that the one you would recommend? I would mainly use it for my phone, but might use it on my PC when needed. It looks to be about $28 on eBay.

        I'm not a huge audiophile, but felt like treating myself after I got a work bonus. I was mainly attracted by the detachable cable, more comfortable ear pads than the cheap cans I had previously, and the overall good sound, but I'm probably not using them to their full potential.

          I have one (FiiO E6).
          I also have the ATH-M50 which is the m50x's predecessor.
          Do I think the amp worth it? Hell no. It just sounds like a volume/bass boost.
          Then again, I haven't been mindblown by the ATH-m50s, or the amperiors.. I received the M50s as a gift, and the sennheiser amperiors I purchased on sale for $185. I seriously don't understand how M50s have been hailed as a holy grail of headphones for value-for-money :|
          The deathclamp has been stretched out on mine, but even after purchasing M50X earpads (contacted the australian distro and bought them), ears sweating still occurs, not to mention they aren't exactly the lightest pair of headphones.
          The amount of internet hype is crazy, either I have very high standards or people on the internet have very low standards (i.e. Meelec in-ears, they're cheap but not THAT great.. same thing with Brainwavz products posted on Ozbargain, they're cheap but oh gosh they sound so muffled.)

          I would mainly use it for my phone, but might use it on my PC when needed. It looks to be about $28 on eBay.

          There's a lot of fake FiiO E6s on ebay.
          I got mine from http://www.mp4nation.net/fiio-e6-portable-audio-headphone-am... [same place for brainwavz crap], because they were listed as an authorized reseller, and I realised I got duped by a fake one on ebay.
          Mine's just lying in a drawer now.

        •  

          Cool, I'll keep that in mind. The M50x's are nice, but I probably didn't need to buy headphones which were that expensive (for a non-audiophile, at least). I'm still pretty happy with them, but buying an amp and adding bulk just to listen to music on the go is probably unnecessary for me.

  •  

    I don't know if the 'limited edition' colour beats amazon selling the m50s on special around the $110~ mark.

    •  

      is that including shipping? if so mind putting the link up please? :)

    •  

      Well the limited edition is M50X = essentially M50 with detachable cable and also better earpads.

      •  

        yeh, good point, but personally i reckon the $50 price difference isn't worth the cable and earpads

        • +2 votes

          it is a portable headphone. Chances are it will get snagged from time to time. The detachable cable feature will serve as a break point rather than have the cable snap.

          IMO any mid range and up headphones without detachable cables are a bad idea. I've chucked so many pairs of perfectly good ear/headphones purely due to damaged cables.

        •  

          I hear you on that. None have happened to me but I know of a few mates that have snapped cables and a mate that did a patch job on his Senny cause he couldn't bear throwing it out.

        •  

          The detachable cable feature will serve as a break point rather than have the cable snap.

          Then again, the ATH-M50s cable is RIDICULOUSLY thick. I guess the M50s weren't really made for portable use on the streets with it's 3M cable haha

  •  

    The sale will ends today 6pm AEST (according to their FB page). So hurry up if u r interested!

    At first I thought these were reeeally expensive bags.
