Closed-back Circumaural Headphones with Collapsible Design, 45mm Neodymium Magnet Drivers, Detachable Cables, 1/4″ Adapter, and Carrying Pouch
Incredible Value in Pro Headphones
Looking for amazing value in professional monitor headphones? Musiekwereld has a great suggestion: the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x. A-T’s flagship M series ‘phones feature 45mm neodymium-magnet drivers that deliver the accurate frequency response and stunning detail you need to make sound decisions when you’re recording, mixing, or DJing. The closed-back design gives you superior isolation with minimal bleed, while the circumaural earpads give you cushy comfort during long sessions. Factor in their space-saving collapsible design, swivel earcups, and detachable cables (the ATH-M50x comes with both straight and coiled ones), and you have a winner.
Closed-back vs. open-back
Also referred to sometimes as simply “closed” and “open,” this distinction addresses the design of the part of the headphone that covers the area behind the driver in a straight line away from the side of your head. Closed-back headphones like the ATH-M50x prevent sound from escaping and leaking into your microphone. The downside of this design is that it traps pressure inside the headphone, which creates false low frequencies. Open-back headphones, on the other hand, don’t suffer from this issue. They deliver outstanding accuracy and clarity that are suitable for critical listening.
Circumaural vs. supra-aural
In layman’s terms, these terms simply mean “over-ear” (circumaural) and “on-ear” (supra-aural). In the case of headphones, this refers to the design of the earcup, which is the cushion that sits between the headphone’s speakers (drivers) and your ear. Supra-aural headphones are rarely used for professional applications; although, they’re great for casual listening — especially if you need to be aware of what’s going on around you. On the other hand, over-ear headphones like the ATH-M50x offer excellent attenuation of external noise.
