Audio-Technica ATH-M50

Here are professional studio monitors which are built like a tank. The ATH-M50s are huge. The earpads are big enough for the biggest ears and the band will probably dwarf most heads. At $199.99 list price these cans can be bought for a little over $100 and will destroy the most discerning options such as the Sony MDR-7506s. See full specifications below.

  • Exceptional audio quality for professional monitoring and mixing

  • Collapsible design ideal for easy portability and convenient storage

  • Proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnet systems

  • Closed-back cushioned earcup design creates an outstanding seal for maximum isolation

  • Adjustable padded headband for comfort during long mixing/recording sessions

  • Single-sided coiled cable terminates to gold-plated mini-plug with screw-on ¼" adapter

Read a short but simple review of the ATH-M50.
