Last month Audio Technica released their successor to the much loved Audio Technica ATH-M50X. The ATH-M50X are still very popular for their great all round sound quality, with a very competitive price. Audio Technica’s new pair of ATH-M70X are designed to be a step up, with a higher price tag to go along. Marques Brownlee from MKBHD has made an in-depth video review, comparing the headphones to the previous model.
In all, with a similar design and subtle physical differences, the new ATH-M70X deliver a much flatter response, which to the untrained ear may sound dull, lacking bass and a little tinny, however great for use in media production. The ATH-M50X (while being cheaper) give a boost to the bass end and treble end, providing a more coloured overall sound, great for media consumption.
