    Take 2 sticks out, and set the XMP profile on, see if that helps and upgrade  to H2 windows.

    unlike Linus OP is poor,so replacing hardware if it's a scam/ defective will be very hard.

    also most people who buy macs are general consumers, who wants features like the apple ecosystem. For devs, Xcode being able to make apps for Iphones and macs are one of the main reason they need OSX, hackintosh is not stable as real OSX. 
     
    Overall Macs are still a better option for most people who wants a macbook due to 
     
    - Better support/ warranty 
     
    - Ecosystem, some people love it. 
     
    - exclusive apps like FCP, Xcode

    The Sloth reacted to jiyeon in Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Revisited - Review Round 2   
    So it’s no secret that my original purchase of the M50x was mildly controversial, and actually looking back now, I can see why. I was a young gun back then, with little to no knowledge about the audiophile’s world, and was tempted by the prettiness of the headphones.
    However, since making my original review of the M50x, I am not afraid to give it a second bout and truly write down on paper how it feels to use it. You can read my original review here, however the original review now means nothing due to this revisiting of the headphones. Note that, because of this revisiting of the ATH-M50x, the old review is now deprecated, but will remain up for the sake of transparency from how I used to feel about the headphones, and in contrast with present day.
     
    I have since been able to experience a number of Hi-Fi products including the Tin T2, FiiO FH5, and most notably my vintage 1993 pair of Sennheiser HD 580 Precision headphones. All of which beat the M50x’s shallow sound signature in some way.
     

     
    Without beating around the bush too much longer, I have returned to give the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x a second review and am officially U-turning them, and revisiting my previous thoughts about these headphones from a now well-oiled pair of ears after experiencing genuinely high-fidelity audio for myself.
    The format of this revisit will follow the formatting of all my previous audio reviews for the sake of keeping things as mirrored as possible, and to give me an opportunity to review my previous opinions without having to actually use the M50x for an extended period of time ever again.
     

     
    If you’ve read my original review, you will know I previously praised the M50x for their sound quality. Well, fast forward to today and they’re absolute trash.
     
    Highs
    The highs are literally nowhere to be found. Treble is very absent, and if EQ’d enough, become super sibilant and hissy. The highs are easily the weakest part of the headphones, as they lack any bit of punch and power. The highs excite none, and in fact have about the same excitement as stepping in a pile of shit, and actually the highs sound like the drivers have dog feces inside them anyway so it’s not too harsh of a comparison.
     
    Mids
    The mids are also extremely weak and absent, and just seemed like they called in sick to work, forever. Mids are completely flat and quiet, even with the volume cranked. You would find better mids in a pair of $5 Walmart headphones with an excessively V-shaped sound signature. The M50x just does not have any strength in the mids at all.
     
    Lows
    If there’s anything that can redeem the M50x, it is the lows. They’re actually there unlike the mids and highs. Unfortunately, they’re about as clear as if you stuck peanut butter and cotton balls into your ears before you put these headphones on. They are extremely muddy and lack any real clarity, and on top of that don’t even produce very much boom. They are underwhelming to the highest degree. The lows on paper were supposed to be the chosen one, but just like Anakin Skywalker, these can frankly die in a fire. No, these will not be resurrected into Darth Vader.
     

     
    While I admit I might have been a little too explicit, I can no longer keep it a secret that I absolutely hate these headphones now after experiencing greener pastures. The M50x just has a rancid sound signature to them, and I frankly don’t understand what demographic would want these as daily drivers.
    You could argue that the tonality in the low end could be geared towards people who are into hip-hop and rock, but even then, the lows are so muddy that you’re not going to enjoy your music at all. Add to that that the M50x are super leaning into the low-end, it’s not even going to be good for mastering and mixing music productions.
     
    These headphones for $150 are just not worth the money, no matter how convenient they are in terms of other features I had bought them for in my original review. No, I will never be using these headphones ever again, no I don’t intend to give them any further chances, no I do not enjoy the hideous sound signature, but yes I will voluntarily send them to landfill free of charge.
     
    I should probably finish by saying that despite how much of a sore jerk I'm being to these headphones, and how I have held no punches, I genuinely don't find these good headphones anymore especially for the price. The sound quality just does not match up to anything else I have used since then.
