Here's an interesting idea! Take one of the most successful headphones ever and an industry standard, and create a wireless version combining the latest Bluetooth 5 technology with the extra features making the design look exactly the same. That's what Audio-Technica just announced with 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. And even the price stays affordable at USD $199.00.
 

“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,” says 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 its well-articulated frequency response and extended smooth bass. Its 45mm large-aperture drivers, which have the capability of a 15 – 28,000 Hz wide frequency range, are employed to deliver the same sonic qualities for 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.
 

But the ATH-M50xBT now 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’ in wireless mode without interruption. And 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.
 
The ATH-M50xBT comes with a 1-foot USB charging cable, detachable 3.9-foot cable with mic for wired operation and a handy carrying pouch, and are now available for US$199.00. Brilliant!
