OREANDA-NEWS. May 27, 2016. They may not look as fancy as a pair of Beats, but many users consider these Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones the "anti-Beats" headphones for their refined sound and much tougher build quality. Better still, you can get them today for \\$90 as part of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day. They normally sell for \\$150, which means you're saving 40 percent off the retail price.

The ATH-M50x is nearly identical to the spectacular ATH-M50 model with a few important updates like improved padding on the earcups and a new detachable cord. These are monitor headphones, which means they look and sound like the ones you'd find in a recording studio: clear, accurate tones with detailed bass, midrange and treble. And even though the cable doesn't have a microphone for making phone calls on the run, they work just as well on the go as they do at home or in the studio.

The discounted price is part of Amazon's Certified Refurbished program. All refurbished products undergo testing and certification by the manufacturer. They're guaranteed to work like new with little or no signs of wear, and Amazon gives a 90-day warranty on all products.

Woot.com is selling the ATH-M50x and Amazon will fulfill the orders with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime customers. The \\$90 deal ends at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT and is available to US customers only.
