Audio-Technica Introduces Its ATH-M50xBT Wireless Over-Ear Headphones, Adding Bluetooth® Capability to an Industry Standard

 
 
 
STOW, OH, October 30, 2018Audio-Technica today announced the introduction of its ATH-M50xBT wireless over-ear headphones, which bring Bluetooth wireless technology to one of the world’s most acclaimed pro audio and consumer headphones. 
 
 
“Although our M-Series models were originally designed as professional studio monitor headphones, they’ve crossed over into the consumer market to the extent that they’ve become a favorite of music listeners worldwide,” said Bob Peet, Audio-Technica U.S. Marketing Manager. “The ATH-M50xBT offers the same sonic signature that has made the ATH-M50x an audio industry standard, along with the convenience of on-the-go wireless operation.” 
 
 
The closed-back ATH-M50xBT delivers an exhilarating wireless listening experience with exceptional clarity, articulate, extended bass and smooth, wide frequency response. Its 45mm large-aperture driver, which has the capability of a 15 – 28,000 Hz wide frequency range, is employed to deliver studio-quality sonic accuracy and musical enjoyment. Rare-earth magnets and Audio-Technica’s copper-clad aluminum wire (CCAW) voice coils are the same as those used in the original ATH-M50x.   
 
 
The ATH-M50xBT utilizes Bluetooth 5.0 and is compatible with aptX® and AAC codecs for the best-possible wireless audio reproduction. 
 
 
An internal battery provides up to 40 hours on a full charge (a USB charging cable is supplied), allowing users to enjoy the headphones’ high-fidelity wireless sound without interruption. In addition, the headphones can be used in wired mode for use with devices that have a wired connection or when battery power is low. 
 
 
The ATH-M50xBT retains the robust construction, fold-flat design with 90-degree swiveling earcups, and professional-grade earpads and headband of the ATH-M50x, with the addition of controls mounted on the left earcup for easy handling of phone calls, music playback and volume adjustment. In addition, a convenient touch control provides easy access to a smartphones’ voice assistant technology. The ATH-M50xBT is also compatible with the Audio-Technica Connect app for iOS and Android, which provides an array of convenient tools and features.
