Audio-Technica's M40x and M50x headphones are some of the best loved headphones in existence. Rocking a 4.6 star rating on Amazon with over 2,200 reviews, the M50x is a shoo-win for the 'Most Popular' award in the audio device high school yearbook. They sound great, are well built, fit comfortably, and aren't terribly expensive.
Especially today, as they are currently on sale. Amazon has the M40x for an all-time low at $64.99 and the M50x for just $117.95 – which is also a great price for that set of cans. If you, like me, live in a state where Amazon charges sales tax, then you may choose to pick up the M40x for the same price through Adorama instead (make sure you use the provided link or the discounted price won't appear).
I have wanted to try the M50x for months, but I promised my wife that I wouldn't buy any more headphones (I love headphones). She told me that I'd have to sleep in the garage if I bought another pair. I do have a rather comfortable couch in the garage and it's not nearly as cold out there as it was a month ago... Oh man – decisions. If your wife hasn't banned you from buying headphones, then you can pick up a pair for yourself by following the links below.
