On Thursday, Japanese headphone giant Audio Technica announced the launch of another limited edition release of their famed M50x headphones at NAMM 2018 in California. Meet Audio Technica ATH-M50xBB Limited Edition Headphones.
New Release Audio Technica ATH-M50xBB Limited Edition Blue/Black Headphones
The new shiny headphone features a metallic blue body and extenders with solid black detachable cables, earpads, and headband.
The black and blue (Backstreet Boys inspired album… just kidding!) will still contain the … parts that made the original so great. The earcups house 45mm large-aperture drivers with rare earth magnets and copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils, soft ear cushions for long listening sessions, and swiveling ear cups for easy maneuverability all in a collapsible frame that’s ideal for DJs and music producers.
Fans can expect the same stellar sound consisting of smooth, rich audio with thumping bass.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBB Limited Edition Black/Blue Headphones joins a stunning line-up of limited edition models to include Matte Grey, Navy & Brown, Red & Gold, Dark Green, will be available March 2018 for $169. They join the currently available ATH-M50x models in black (ATH-M50x) and white (ATH-M50xWH).
