The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA 01-22-2015 Audio-Technica (booth 6740), a leading innovator in transducer technology for over 50 years, unveils its ATH-M70x Professional Monitor Headphones, the new flagship model in A-T’s acclaimed M-Series line of headphones. Designed specifically to bring out added detail in the mix, the ATH-M70x professional monitor headphones feature proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with rare earth magnets and copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils and are tuned to accurately reproduce extreme low and high frequencies (5 to 40,000 Hz) while maintaining perfect balance. Featuring rugged, metal design, they are ideal for studio mixing and tracking, FOH, DJ use, personal listening, mastering, post production and audio forensics.

Crafted for lasting durability with a collapsible, space-saving design, the headphones are equipped with 90° swiveling earcups for easy, one-ear monitoring.

The headphones’ circumaural design contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. They come standard with three interchangeable cables (1.2 m - 3.0 m coiled cable, 3.0 m straight cable and 1.2 m straight cable) and a hard carrying case.
