Since every other smartphone brand out there is saying good bye to the headphone jack and we become increasingly more attached to our handsets, we’re looking towards a wireless future that is getting closer every day.
The Bluetooth headphones have become increasingly more popular and they don’t seem to be going away any time soon so Japanese firm Audio Technica decided to follow suit and cut the cord of one of their most well-received products.
The company announced the release of the new ATH-M50xBT, the Bluetooth wireless version of the M50 range which has sold over 1.8 million units across the world and are being used by a number of well-known music artists.
Audio Technica promises that the switch to wireless will not affect the sound quality in any way and that the brand will stay true to what has made it one of the most well-known names on the market: exceptional clarity and accurate bass response.
The headphones come with the usual features we have now grown accustomed to finding on most headphones nowadays: touch controls that can activate your virtual assistant of choice, built-in microphone and easy management via the brand’s own app. They also come with a 40 hour battery life.
The headphones are collapsable and come with both a carry case and wired connection, in case you might need it at some point.
What the headphones lack is noise cancellation technology but the design is generous: the over-the-ear cups should keep your ears isolated well enough for you not to need it.
The headphones are already available on the market and they can be purchased from Amazon, the brand’s official website and other online retail partners for only $199.
