Halloween is just around the corner and Audio Technica are celebrating the witching hour with the release of their latest pair of special edition headphones.
The Japanese audio brand announced a limited edition of the ATH-M50x professional studio headphones in the ATH-M50xMO (£149.99 / €169) earlier in 2021, furnished with a striking Jack-O-Lantern like orange finish, and now they’ve unveiled the wireless ATH-M50BT2xMO Bluetooth model (£189.99/ €219).
If you don’t like the look then don’t lay the blame at Audio-Technica’s door. Fans of the company were invited to vote on an exclusive, limited-edition design, with nearly 40% voting for the Lantern Glow finish in a global poll.
The new colourway is the latest in a series of limited-edition finishes for the M50 range that stretches back to the 50th Anniversary ATH-M50s/LE model back in 2012. 2020 saw the ATH-M50xPB receive a purple-and-black appearance.
A descendant of the legendary ATH-M50 studio model that was birthed in 2007, the ATH-M50xMO and regular ATH-M50x professional studio headphones aim to offer a balanced sonic performance; producing a wide-frequency range with deep, accurate bass performance through their 45mm drivers.
The design of the headphones is collapsible for easy transport, while the closed-back design offer noise isolation against external sounds (there’s no ANC on this model). With professional-grade build quality that extends to the earpads and headband, long-lasting durability is very much a feature of these headphones. Included with the headphones are three detachable cables (1.2m and 3m cables) for connecting to a variety of sources.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50xMO are already on sale from the Audio Technica website for £149.99 / €169, while the wireless ATH-M50BT2xMO Bluetooth model (£189.99/ €219) are available from today (October 13th).
