Audio-Technica ATH-M70x Review

The Audio-Technica ATH-M70x are excellent headphones and a no brainer for pros and serious enthusiasts, but the price may be too much for casual music lovers.

Sound Guys is our sister site, dedicated to all things audio. Once in a while, we’ll be sharing the coolest products they review here.

In the early days of Sound Guys (okay, it was like a year ago) we reviewed the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x and, like everyone else, thought that they were a fantastic pair of headphones. From monitoring to mixing to simply listening to your favorite music, they excelled at it all, and all for a surprisingly low price. Strange creatures that people are, we constantly found people asking when the company would replace them with something better.

Whether or not the Audio-Technica ATH-M70x headphones are better than the ATH-M50x is a good question, but it doesn’t seem to be one that Audio-Technica has an interest in answering. Instead, they claim that while the ATH-M70x is the company’s new flagship in that line, both models are great. After testing, we’re inclined to agree. There is one important difference here: the price. The ATH-M70x list for $419, quite a bit more than the ATH-M50x.

That higher price tag brings flatter frequency response, greatly expanded range, and the use of more premium materials in the build.
