Audio-Technica has introduced the ATH-M50RD professional studio monitor headphones, a stylish red limited-edition version of the company’s flagship ATH-M50 headphones.

Based on input from end users looking for an alternative to the ATH-M50’s existing color schemes, the ATH-M50RD headphones offer the exact same comfort and superior audio quality for professional monitoring and mixing as their standard counterparts.

Audio-Technica U.S. marketing director Gary Boss states, “We decided to inject some color into the studio with the limited-edition ATH-M50RD. Discerning engineers and musicians can add a little fun to their sessions while maintaining the audio quality they have come to expect from our original M50’s.”

The ATH-M50 headphones have an efficient collapsible design ideal for easy portability and convenient storage. Employing A-T’s proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnet systems and CCAW voice coils, the ATH-M50 headphones offer good power handling and very high SPL capabilities while delivering clear, natural, accurate sound with impactful bass and high-frequency extension.

The headphones also have a closed-back cushioned earcup, providing exceptional clarity and isolation in high-volume listening situations. In addition, the circumaural earpieces swivel a full 180 degrees for easy one-ear monitoring.

The ATH-M50 has a lightweight and adjustable cushioned headband for maximum listening comfort. An OFC litz wire cable at the left earpiece terminates to a gold-plated 1/8-inch connector with included professional screw-on 1/4-inch adapter.

The ATH-M50RD headphones will be available March 2013 with a U.S. MSRP of $209.
