If you didn’t like the overall aesthetics of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, you’ll love the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xIB. It’s basically a limited edition version that comes in an Ice Blue colorway.
Critically acclaimed sonic performance praised by top audio engineers and pro audio reviewers
But what really makes this limited edition headphone stand out from other limited editions is Audio-Technica’s way of coming up with the model.
The brand has held a global crowd-sourcing campaign, where Audio-Technica fans voted for the color that they want to see in the limited edition.
The great part is that Audio-Technica will also offer the same colorway for the ATH-M50xBT2. For that, the limited edition model will go by ATH-M50xBT2IB.
Besides the new colorway, the other aspects of the limited edition are pretty much the same as the originals. That means the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xIB will have the same 45 mm large-aperture drivers with class-leading sound isolation.
These two aspects made the original ATH-M50x famous among mixers and studio recorders. In addition, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xIB comes with all the high-end audio technology that Audio-Technica has under its sleeves.
Thanks to that, the limited edition model excels in delivering a natural and accurate sound profile with impactful bass. What’s more important is that the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xIB has professional-grade earpads and a comfortable headband.
The brand has utilized high-quality materials to offer the highest level of comfort. And for the detachable cable, you’ll face no issues while transporting the headphone and carrying it in your backpack while traveling.
Want to know about the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2IB? It offers the same audio experience as its wired counterpart. That means you get a deep bass response and enhanced clarity in audio.
Additionally, the Bluetooth headphones come with premium internal audio components. There’s a dedicated headphone amp too. Also, the wireless headset is compatible with multiple audio codecs. That includes LDAC, AAC, and SBC.
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2IB comes with multiple voice assistants. There’s Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa Built-in. To make it easier for you to pair the headset with your preferred devices, the M50xBT2IB has Fast Pair.
Another interesting feature of the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2IB is that it can work in wired mode. In the box, you get a detachable 1.2-meter cable, which will let you get a non-stop music-listening experience when the internal battery is out of juice.
But that doesn’t mean that the battery life isn’t great. As a matter of fact, it’s better than most of the average Bluetooth headphones. You get up to 50 hours of run time with a single charge.
And for the rapid charge feature through USB-C, the headset can deliver 3 hours of playtime with just a 10-minute charge.
Overall, both the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xIB and ATH-M50xBT2IB are a great addition to the brand’s lineup. The Ice Blue colorway truly makes them unique.
