Audio-Technica showcased an exciting array of new products Jan. 18-21 at the world’s largest music products trade show, NAMM 2007.

Leading Audio-Technica’s NAMM product introductions are the new flagship ATH-M50 professional studio monitor headphones. Designed to provide an exceptionally natural response for professional monitoring and mixing, the headphones feature a closed-back, collapsible design with 45 mm neodymium drivers, circumaural ear pieces (180° swivel) and luxuriously padded ear cushions. A coiled cable at the left earpiece terminates to a gold-plated mini plug with included screw-on ¼" adapter.

Another highlight at A-T NAMM, Audio-Technica’s new AT2010 cardioid condenser microphone makes the studio-quality articulation and intelligibility of A-T’s renowned 20 Series truly accessible for the stage. Featuring the same low-mass diaphragm found in the critically acclaimed AT2020 side-address studio condenser, the AT2010 vocal condenser delivers remarkable specs and superior build at an amazing price.

Direct from Japan, additions to the Import Series offer the superior audio quality that has made Audio-Technica a worldwide leader in electro-acoustic technology. With the introduction of Audio-Technica’s two new QuietPoint™ Passive Noise-Reducing Earphones, the Import Series delivers outstanding isolation from distracting background noise. Without the use of active noise-cancelling electronics, these in-ear models—the ATH-CK9 and ATH-CK7 earphones—achieve significant attenuation of outside sound, allowing for increased fidelity and acoustic impact at lower volume levels. Fashion and audio converge with A-T’s new ATH-ES7 portable headphones. These stainless steel headphones blend ultra-sleek contemporary design and outstanding acoustic performance.

Also making their NAMM debut, Audio-Technica’s new ATH-ANC7 QuietPoint™ Active Noise-Cancelling Headphones deliver an amazing 85% (20 dB) reduction in background noise. The travel-friendly design is equipped with fully integrated noise-cancelling electronics that require no bulky external modules. Audio-Technica made certain that even if the battery is depleted, the headphones still function beautifully as stereo headphones.
