Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Headphones Review

Introduction

Audio-Technica has long ago justified its claim to a higher standing in the audio equipment industry than most manufacturers could ever hope to achieve. The company is pushing the ATH-M20x and the entire M line as an affordable audio solution, a credit to the company and the flagship of the industry, or more specifically, the studio monitoring equipment industry. The M20x is marketed as a classically designed mixing and tracking choice, which does justice to lower frequencies and catches excellent detail effortlessly. It is these main features that we’ll be addressing in our review, with some allowance for the intriguingly low price of this smallest of all M-line headphones.

Whichever way the scale tilts, it’s good to keep in mind that the M series is a favourite with musicians and music enthusiasts, and the M20x would have to go a long way to taint its reputation.

They responded to customer feedback and updated their ATH-M50 with detachable cables, allowing the cable to be replaced without affecting the overall headphone performance, plus a refined sound range that is modified in line with recent research into listener preferences.

Designed for lengthy studio use and mixing sessions, the ATH-M50x are a bit heavier than some of the other over-the-ear headphones on the market, weighing in at 10 ounces.

Impressively, unlike some of the other studio headphones on the market at the moment, they require no batteries and no amplification. The sound is like a PA around the ears, even when playing from a lower end mp3 player.
