Audio-Technica introduces its flagship ATH-M50 ($199) professional studio monitor headphones, which the company says will be available in February 2007. Embodying the company’s latest transducer technology, the ATH-M50 headphones are said to offer the highest level of sonic accuracy in a design that is engineered to provide maximum comfort for hours of use.
Specifically intended for professional monitoring and mixing applications, the ATH-M50 headphones feature a collapsible design for portability and convenient storage. Employing Audio-Technica’s proprietary 45mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnet systems and CCAW voice coils, the ATH-M50 headphones promise exceptional power handling and very high SPL capabilities while delivering clear, natural, accurate sound with deep, resonating bass and high-frequency extension.
The ATH-M50 also features a closed-back cushioned ear cup designed for exceptional clarity and superior isolation in high-volume listening situations. In addition, the circumaural earpieces swivel a full 180 degrees for single-ear monitoring.
The ATH-M50 has a lightweight and adjustable cushioned headband for maximum listening comfort. A coiled OFC litz wire cable at the left earpiece terminates to a gold-plated 1/8-inch connector with an included screw-on 1/4-inch adapter.
