As the most critically acclaimed model in the M-Series line, the ATH-M50 is praised by top audio engineers and pro audio reviewers year after year. Now, the ATH-M50x professional monitor headphones feature the same coveted sonic signature, with the added feature of detachable cables. From the large aperture drivers, sound isolating earcups and robust construction, the M50x provides an unmatched experience for the most critical audio professionals.

They feature 45mm Neodymium drivers with copper-clad aluminum voice coils that provide an extended frequency response from 15Hz to 28kHz. The headphones have a circumaural, around-the-ear design that provides sound isolation in loud environments. The ATH-M50x’s ear cups can be swiveled 90-degrees, allowing for single-ear monitoring. The headphones have a detachable single-sided cable system, and a 3-meter coiled cable, a 3-meter straight cable, and a 1.2-meter straight cable are included. When not in use, the ATH-M50x can be folded down and stored in the included carry pouch.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x show that you generally get a lot more bang for your buck from something a bit more traditional.They have the bass skew of most style headphones, but execute this sort of sound with the panache that’s rare enough at $250, let alone the $120 you need to pay for these.At the price the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x wipe the floor with most rivals, and offer a pretty good alternative to headphones twice the price like the Sennheiser Momentum.

            • Impedance Impedance and sensitivity go hand in hand and represent the amount of power required to achieve a certain volume level. Lower impedance and higher sensitivities are better with lower power devices such as MP3 players or smartphones.

            • Operating Principle A headphone's operating principle refers to a physical design difference between headphones. They come in three types: open, semi-open, or closed. Open means that air can pass through the back of the diaphragm, preventing sound reflection, and producing a very accurate sound reproduction.
