Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Professional Studio Monitor Headphones – Black
Audio-Technica ATH-M50X Overview
Widely acclaimed for their sonic performance, one-ear monitoring capability, and foldable, travel-friendly design, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M50x M-Series monitor headphones offer pro-grade build quality and audio performance for professional studio-based production, location recording, DJing, podcasting, and daily listening. Outfitted with 45mm large-aperture dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M50x headphones deliver clarity, deep bass, and extended bandwidth (15 Hz to 28 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.
Thanks to the 90° swiveling earcups, pro-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Three detachable, single-sided cables—one coiled and two straight—are included for optimal operation in the studio or on the go. Each cable sports a gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4″ screw-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers. A carrying pouch is supplied with the ATH-M50x for convenient storage and transport of the headphones.
The ATH-M50x features proprietary 45mm large-aperture dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for high-quality sound reproduction.
Tuned for Clarity and Deep, Accurate Bass
The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned flat for exceptional clarity throughout an extended frequency range along with deep, accurate bass character. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 28 kHz, the ATH-M50x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.
Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design
The ATH-M50x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.
90° Swiveling Earcups and Foldable Design
Equipped with 90° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M50x ensures a great fit and allows effortless one-ear monitoring, a welcome benefit for DJs and singers. The earcups fold up to meet the headband, saving space during storage. A carrying pouch is supplied for protection and convenience while transporting the headphones.
Three Detachable Single-Sided Cables
To expand its versatility, the ATH-M50x incorporates a detachable cable design that exits from the left side. This enables convenient cable swapping and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone. Three cables are included—a 3.9 to 9.8′ coiled cable, a 9.8′ straight cable, and a 3.9′ straight cable—to let you choose the best cable for sessions, traveling, or listening at home.
3.5mm Plug and 1/4″ Screw-On Adapter
The attached cable is terminated with a gold-plated 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A secure 1/4″ screw-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Built-in strain relief on the 3.5mm mini plug reduces the likelihood of damaging the connection if the cable is pulled.
Pro-Grade Build Quality
Thanks to the pro-grade earpad and headband materials used in the ATH-M50x, the headphones provide increased durability and comfort while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.
