New Product Review: Audio-Technica ATH-M60x Headphones

August 22, 2018

Our friends at Audio-Technica have recently expanded their already-popular "M" series of professional headphones - at this year's NAB Show they introduced a new on-ear (supra-aural) model, the ATH-M60x.

Based on some of the same technologies and components as their over-ear models (such as the highly-regarded ATH-M50x), these headphones promise similar sound performance while offering the compact size and lighter weight of an on-ear design.

Audio-Technica recently sent us a pair to check out, and our team of Sales Professionals tried them on for size and shared their thoughts.

"I'm not normally a fan of on-the-ear headphones, but I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable these felt on my head. I was also highly impressed by the detail and the clarity they offer. They had a lot more low end than I'd have imagined, too!"
Eric Eldredge

"At first I was skeptical of the higher price tag compared to other on-ear headphones, but after hearing them, I'd say they're worth every penny."
Laszlo Denes

"The detail is superb, the feel is very comfortable, and they don't sound overly sterile or overly flattering. They just sound good. You can't expect more from headphones."
John DiMaggio

"Great sound! Nice high-frequency detail, with an accurate stereo image that evokes a sense of space. It's also lightweight and comfortable on your ears."
Dan Francia

"They sounded really great, and I had a hard time giving them back"
Tim Finnegan

About the ATH-M60x:
Designed for broadcast, studio, and mobile applications, the ATH-M60x on-ear professional monitor headphones utilize the same proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers found in the legendary ATH-M50x headphones, delivering exceptional clarity throughout an extended frequency range with an accurate bass response. The low-profile, closed-back, on-ear design provides excellent sound isolation and a great fit, which is enhanced by the exceptional comfort and durability of the memory foam earpads and headband.

The headphones come with three interchangeable cables (1.2 m - 3.0 m coiled, 3.0 m straight, and 1.2 m straight – each with a 3.5 mm (1/8") mini-plug), a 6.3 mm (1/4") screw-on adapter, and a protective carrying pouch.
