WNAMM07: Headphones For Studio Monitoring


Audio-Technica has introduced its flagship ATH-M50 professional studio monitor headphones. They tell us that, embodying the company’s latest transducer technology, the ATH-M50 headphones offer the highest level of sonic accuracy in an innovative design engineered to provide maximum comfort for hours of use.
Here’s the rest of what A-T have to say in their own words:
Specifically intended for professional monitoring and mixing applications, the ATH-M50 headphones feature an efficient collapsible design ideal for easy portability and convenient storage. Employing Audio-Technica’s proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnet systems and CCAW voice coils, the ATH-M50 headphones have 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 earcup providing exceptional clarity and superior isolation in high volume listening situations. In addition, the circumaural earpieces swivel a full 180º for easy one-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" connector with included professional screw-on 1/4" adapter.
Pricing and Availability:
The ATH-M50 will be available February 2007 with a U.S. MSRP of $199.00. More information:
