All these come together, making them a favorite among the top most sound engineers in the industry. The padding on the headband and ear cups is one of the most comfortable we have never come across in headphones. You can easily wear them throughout the day without discomfort issues. The sound quality is nothing less than amazing.

These headphones come in second on this list since they’d be the ideal pick for just about anyone. If you’re looking for great multipurpose headphones that you can use for both the studio and additionally with other devices, then these will work perfectly. The vast majority of studio-specific headphones lack the bass they need to keep the frequency flat for better sound engineering. But the manufacturer of these headphones has shown genuine concern regarding this and have included great bass functionality which can be used as needed. So for someone low on spending, seeking excellent headphones with bass, these are a great choice.

The volume is impeccable, and the bass is genuine bass. While far from what you get in high-end headphones, it’s still pretty close to perfect bass. Sound isolation is a pretty neat feature for most headphones to have, specifically for music production, and the sound isolation on these headphones is pretty exceptional and works best when you used for studio mixing. For general use, however, you’ll find it does an okay job. But use it solely as studio monitor headphones and it works out extremely well. The design of the headphones is very premium and sturdy.

Along with the different sides of cables, you get a carrying bag that matches the color of the headphones. The cushion padding on the ear cups and the headband is soft and shouldn’t cause any issues. The weight of the ATH-M50x comes in at around 9-ounces, making it pretty lightweight and comfortable.

These headphones from Beyerdynamic are pretty great in terms of specifications. In general specifications, these headphones come with an open diffused field and 250-ohm drivers, along with a wired cable. The renowned manufacturer has given its best in terms of sound quality, and we managed to get pretty excellent sound reproduction in our testing. You get a rugged, adjustable headband that is both flexible and durable. The ear cups are the most interesting part of the design. They are open-back headphones with a grilled exterior design, built ideally for mixing purposes. The large and super soft ear cups are made of microfiber and are one of the most comfortable pairs of headphones in the market.

In the comfort department, the DT 990 PRO simply blows its competitors out of the water. These headphones are ideal for music mixers or sound engineers who work for continuous hours in their studio, as the lightweight and comfortable design makes it easy to use over longer periods of time. The DT 990 is not much different from the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x feature-wise with the main differences being in build design. And while the MTH-50x works well in general use, the DT 990 is more focused towards sound engineering and might not be the best for regular use headphones.

The price of the headphones comes in at the mid-range. And while you can probably find headphones with almost similar features at comparatively lower prices, the DT 900 rules in terms of build quality and overall weight.

These headphones come with excellent isolation technology, ensuring minimal disturbance from external sounds. Drivers are the 90-degree swiveling kind, which makes it comfortable to monitor music with just one driver on the ear. The headphones are constructed using premium quality material, and the headband and ear cups provide a moderate level of comfort. Even though the MTH-40x is not as heavily padded as the 50x, it is still very comfortable to wear and can surely be worn for a long period of time.

The ATH-40x comes with 40-millimeter drivers, which are slightly smaller than the 45-millimeter drivers on the ATH-50x. The driver size affects the bass. Now, while this doesn’t mean that the base on the 40x is weak, it’s just not as good as the 50x. The sound quality in the ATH-40x is as good as the ATH-50x. The mid-range is very accurate and clear with excellent depth. The audio that comes out is detailed and crisp, ideally suited for sound monitoring. As mentioned earlier, these are the predecessor of the ATH-M50x but in no way are weaker than it.

They would be an ideal choice for people on a low budget and want to try out Audio-Technica headphones. As aspiring musicians may not necessarily have an unlimited budget to try out premium accessories, and so I would easily recommend the ATH-M40x as a lower-cost alternative that comes packed with amazing features and maintains a certain trust factor in terms of the brand name.

After the ATH-M50x, these are probably the best closed-back headphones. They are available in three variants: 32-ohm, 80-ohm, and 250-ohm. I’m going to review the 250-ohm variant here. The 770 PROs are best for those music producers who like to focus more on the bass. Since the headphones are closed-back, bass response is superior on them. Along with that, since they are closed-back, the overall sound comes out much more detailed. You can also use them as normal headphones. You will get an excellent audio experience on them.

Talking about build and quality on DT 770 PRO, the headphones come with a solid build quality and look, almost the same as DT 990, except the grill/vent that you get to see in DT 990. The headphones are available in two colors: gray and black. The padding on the headphones is the same as DT 990 and is one of the most comfortable you will ever get with any headphones. The soft leather padding on the headband and the lower padding on the ear cups is super soft and would allow you to use the headphones for longer periods of time without any issues.

You get single side connectivity, which means there would be no hassle of wires, and headphones could be taken on and off without any issues. With the 250-ohm version, you get a 3-meter coiled cable for connectivity.
