It depends on how you personally define “better.” If you’re looking to mix audio, the ATH-M50x will sound “better” because they’re aptly suited for studio purposes. Their sound signature is more neutral, which differs from the typical consumer headphone. Speaking of which, the B&W PX fall under that category. They tend to please the consumer ear more than the professional one. Now, this is neither good, nor bad; it just is.
If you like slightly emphasized bass with the majority of emphasis placed on vocals and treble, then the PX are likely to please you more than the A-T M40x. It all depends on your listening purpose. Personally, for daily listening, I’d be more inclined to pick up the B&W PX. For video/audio editing, however, I’ll take the M50x any day.
