Audio-Technica is offering ATH-M50xMO professional monitor headphones in a limited-edition “Lantern Glow” version, featuring a metallic orange finish with black and silver accents. The new model is the result of a global crowd-sourcing campaign, where end users voted on their favorite color of the next ATH-M50x model.
Incorporating 45 mm large-aperture drivers and sound-isolating earcups, ATH-M50xMO headphones are designed for critical audio applications that include recording, live sound, broadcast, DJ and personal listening. With professional-grade earpad and headband material as well as a collapsible design with detachable cable, they’re designed to remain comfortable throughout long monitoring sessions and transport easily.
