Audio Technica ATH M50 Headphones Review – For Studio Sounds on the Street

Jan 18, 2016 // 1 Comment

I created this website to help more ‘audiophiles’ and casual music lovers to choose the best pair of headphones. Personally, I’ve been getting fed up with the number of people I’ve seen around wearing Dr Dre Beats headphones. I think a lot of them have been sucked into the marketing hype and bought them based on appearances rather than performance.
