Audio-Technica ATH M50 User Review (Anniversary Edition) (Updated)

I got the Audio-Technica ATH-M50s/LE 50th Anniversary Edition about a year ago. I retired my old Sennheiser cans which I reviewed here. The Audio-Technica M50’s have been around for a long time and people swear by them. This is a straight cable 50th Anniversary Edition which is in a metallic silver-blue finish instead of the regular black-grey. In all other ways, it is exactly like the regular ATH-M50’s and has the same specifications.

Top 21 Mac OSX Apps

 My post on Top Apps for iPad was quite a hit. After searching around and not finding much, here are the apps I finally settled on my MacBook Pro acquired last December. These apps vary in functionality from Audio Recording to everyday apps.

1. Reaper – 60 days trial period and US$60 for discounted license for personal use and US$225 for full commercial license. This DAW comes with plugins for all your needs and works any VST,AU and JS plugins. Super stable and light program. Fully customisable GUI to make it behave like any DAW you are already familiar with. I personally prefer its native look and feel. Play around for 60 days and buy it even if you don’t like it.
