Audio-Technica is a company from Japan that is renowned in the field of audio equipment. Their headphones have been famous for their design, functionality, comfort and, above all else, great sound. The ATH-M50x headphones are a proud continuance of this tradition.
Many of the features of the original professional monitor headphones, similarly named the ATH-M50, are still present with these. And this is a good thing, because they are just awesome. Additionally you get some other perks such as better earpads and three cables which are separable.
Design-wise, the ATH-M50x are simply wonderful. They are not inconspicuous, but rather large. Now, if you want to make large headphones, they need to be good looking. The ATH-M50x are beautiful and practical, designed for a perfect fit and comfort, with comfortably padded pads and headband, but also isolating the ambient sounds very well. They can also fold and pivot which is great when you are using them on one ear only. Moreover, there are three colors available – black, white and blue.
The sound comes from 45mm drivers with rare earth magnets and copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils. The quality of the sound they provide is simply amazing. The sound is clear and the bass is very accurate and deep. How good they are you can see from the fact that they are deemed to be perfect for studio mixing and tracking and DJ monitoring.
We also mentioned the three cables and these include 1.2m and 3m straight cable and a 1.2-3m coiled cable.
The ATH-M50x can be yours for the reduced price of $141 for the black and white versions and $20 more for the blue version.
