Audio-Technica has introduced its ATH-M50RD Professional Studio Monitor Headphones, a stylish red limited-edition version of A-T's flagship ATH-M50 headphones. They tell us that, based on input from end users looking for an alternative to the ATH-M50's existing color schemes, the ATH-M50RD headphones offer the exact same comfort and superior audio quality for professional monitoring and mixing as their standard counterparts.
Gary Boss, Audio-Technica U.S. Marketing Director, told us, "We decided to inject some color into the studio with the limited-edition ATH-M50RD. Discerning engineers and musicians can add a little fun to their sessions while maintaining the audio quality they have come to expect from our original M50's."
