Bass heavy these M50s cans are not, but they do offer a warm, controlled rumble that’s just enough without overpowering. The midrange is well defined and rolls up smoothly into the treble, which dodges harshness even when cranked up to high volumes.
Theses Audio Technica headphones have a solid design, which isn’t the lightest out there, and the long coiled cable makes them more suitable for at-home listening, but in terms of sound quality, wherever you use these cans you’re in for a treat.
