What is it?A professional studio monitor headphone designed to offer an exceptionally accurate response and long-wearing listening comfort. DetailsDesigned for professional monitoring and mixing applications, the ATH-M50 studiophones incorporate a collapsible design for space-saving portability and storage. Circumaural ear pieces swivel through 180° for easy one-ear monitoring, while the “luxuriously” padded ear cushions are said to create an outstanding seal for maximum isolation. The adjustable headband is also generously padded for improved comfort over long periods, with a coiled cable from the left-hand earpiece terminating in a gold-plated mini plug. The ATH-M50 features proprietary 45mm drivers offering a frequency response of 15Hz – 28kHz and 99dB sensitivity. The low impedance, 30 ohm design incorporates neodymium magnet systems said to offer highly efficient signal transfer through the coiled 3m OFC litz cable or an optionally-available 3.4m straight cable. The headphone weighs 284g without the cable and connector which feature built-in strain relief for improved durability and a professional screw-on ¼” adapter.
