Audio Technica ATH-M70x Professional Monitor Headphones Now Available
Last month, Audio Technica officially announced their latest flagship headphone expanding its M-Series line – the Audio Technica ATH-M70x Professional Monitor headphone. The new ATH-M70x is “tuned to accurately reproduce extreme low and high frequencies while maintaining perfect balance with exceptional clarity and detail”. The ATH-M50x was pretty much a success and popular, just like the ATH-M50. The new ATH-M70x may push the boundaries further and provide a much better audio listening experience.

Editor’s Note: I’ve been checking early reviews and so far according to their comments, the new M70x is less bassy compared to the M50x. The sound signature is somewhat different. The M70x is geared towards clarity and flatness with emphasis on mids and highs. We are hoping to get one of this soon so that we can properly compare the M50x vs the new M70x.
