Audio-Technica adds Bluetooth to ATH headphones

Audio-Technica is adding the ATH-M50xBT wireless over-ear headphones to its range, bringing Bluetooth wireless technology to one of its most admired pro audio and consumer headphones.

The closed-back ATH-M50xBT offers a 45mm large-aperture driver, with a 15–28,000 Hz frequency range. Rare-earth magnets and Audio-Technica’s copper-clad aluminium wire voice coils are the same as those used in the original ATH-M50x.

The ATH-M50xBT utilises Bluetooth 5.0 and is compatible with aptX and AAC codecs. 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.
