Audio-Technica released a metallic silver version of its M50 studio headphones to help celebrate the company’s 50th Anniversary in 2012. Proving hugely popular a limited-edition colour has become an annual event and a most sought-after headphone.

Although a little late the striking 2017 limited edition is well worth the wait. Finished in metallic red with gold trim
this year’s M50x takes quite a departure from the conservative colours of the last few years and is perhaps the
boldest M50x design ever.

Regardless of colour the critically acclaimed sonic performance praised by top audio engineers and pro audio
reviewers alike remains unchanged. With large aperture 45mm drivers the M50x delivers exceptional clarity, flat
frequency response and deep accurate bass. Contoured, replaceable earcups seal tight for excellent sound isolation.
Conveniently portable, M50x can be folded up and comes with a soft carry bag. Three detachable cables and a
6.5mm jack adapter completes the picture.

ATH-M50x RED will retail in Australia for $279. Audio-Technica is distributed by Technical Audio Group, 43-53
Bridge Road, STANMORE NSW 2048. Ph. (02) 9519 0900.
