Audio-Technica has announced the soon to be available extended range ATH-M50 professional studio monitor headphones. They are specifically designed for professional recording, monitoring, and mixing, providing maximum comfort during extended wear sessions that are common in a studio environment.
The closed back design of these headphones feature maximum isolation due to their integrated complex driver technology. They support high power/high SPL capabilities, and manage to maintain “clarity, tight bass, and extended high frequency response,” according to Audio-Technica. The integrated single sided coiled cable terminates to an 1/8″ plug, and a 1/4″ adapter is included for maximum compatibility.
- Frequency Response: 15 – 28,000 Hz
- Impedance: 38 ohms
The ATM-50′s will be available sometime this month. My guess is that they will perform well for podcast recording and post production. MSRP $199 US.
