Audio-Technica Launches ATH-M50xBT Wireless Headphones In India
Japanese audio equipment giant Audio-Technica announced its ATH-M50xBT wireless over-ear headphones in India. These were launched in Bangalore today, March 4. The company has added Bluetooth functionality to the widely acclaimed studio monitoring headphones, the ATH-M50x. The headphones were launched in the month of October last year and are finally making their way into the Indian market.
The Audio-Technica ATH M50xBT wireless over the ear headphones have a closed back design. This will allow for better noise isolation than open back headphones. Like its wired counterpart, the design is the same and the headphones have a ‘fold-flat’ design with 90-degree swivelling ear cups. The company claims professional grade earpads and headband on the headset. The controls are mounted on the left earcup for handling phone calls, music playback and for adjusting volume. The touch controls on the headphones will facilitate in accessing either the Google Assistant or Siri, based on the device. The company is also providing compatibility with the Audio-Technica Connect app for iOS and Android, which will further provide the headphones with additional features and tools.
Specifications wise, the ATH M50xBT have a 45mm aperture driver, which has a 15-28,000Hz frequency range, which will allow for wide sound coverage and sonic accuracy. The wire coils are made up of copper-clad aluminium. The headset utilizes Bluetooth 5.0 and is compatible with aptX and AAC codecs, for improvement in the audio quality. There is also support for a wired mode when the battery drains out. Speaking of battery, Audio-Technica claims a play time of up to 40 hours on a single charge on the headphones.
