10/10 as far as I'm concerned
These are great so far, I mostly use them for classes, casual music listening, and a bit of gaming. I personally hate noise cancelling headsets, so these are great! They are comfy, although the clamping force is a bit tight. This can hopefully be fixed by use over a period of time though. Passive noise cancellation just from the ear cups is fairly good, although the 360 swiveling earcups are great because I like to listen to music with one ear uncovered so I can still hear what's going on around me. So far so good, I will change this review if anything comes up, but given the record of AT in the past, I mostly likely won't run into anything.

Solid M50's
I've used these for a few days now, both on and off campus, and around the city. They're solid bluetooth headphones for the price point.
They maintain roughly the same quality audio as the studio M50's that AT makes, but bluetooth cant really ever reach that level of fidelity.
They're good at blocking out ambient noise, and you dont need to have them up on high volume to drown out people talking, or the general sounds of a campus/generally noisy environment.

I've messed around with the integrated google assistant a few times so far - the sound quality on the mic monitoring is poor, and picks up lots of ambient noise - i havent tried to use that outdoors yet, but i dont think it will work well in an outdoor setting if there's wind or background noise (a road, etc).

I have used these as studio monitors to compare with standard M50's, by using the included 3.5mm Jack. Sound quality doesnt improve much using the included cable, and if you touch the cable at all, you can hear the sound travel into the headphones themselves. On top of that, the cord is only 3 feet. I was attempting to use it on a ProTools session and couldnt move to the opposite side of my mixing console, without these being restricted - leaning was a no-go as well. It might be worth investing in a longer headphone cable if you plan to switch between using them as BT headphones and also studio monitors (which, i genuinely believe these make decent monitor headphones).

Overall, theyre a solid product. I've used them for about 8 hours every day since getting them, and the battery level on the app is currently reading 95%. I'd totally recommend these to anyone who's looking for good BT headphones with balanced audio, and decent features. I used them the entire time i was writing this review, was not disappointed.
