For Christmas we bought our son a ath-m50 , a professional headphone for his little home studio that he invites his college friends over for fun during the weekend. We actually looked for the right pair for the longest time and finally decided on this one because it’s easy to use and it works well for a home studio as well as a professional one. The son had tested it , loved it and said that it is the most comfortable headphones that he ever had. And it’s very light weight too and that is one of the reasons why we picked it as we know that the son sometimes jam with his friends for hours. So I’m really happy we got him a good headphone and not try to be cheap.
