13 January 2023

Audio-Technica is excited to introduce the new ATH-M50xSTS and ATHM50xSTS-USB streaming headsets. These models are the world’s first headsets specifically developed to address the needs of live-streaming content creators. The all-new streaming headsets were launched and displayed along with Audio-Technica’s complete range of consumer products at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, Central Hall Booth 18266 (January 5-8, 2023). 

The headsets are equipped with the same 45mm large-aperture drivers that grace the M50x headphones — the monitoring choice of top engineers and audio pros — to provide exceptional clarity throughout an extended frequency range, with deep, accurate bass response. The streaming headsets, come with two sets of distinct earpads: M50x earpads that stress audio quality and sound isolation; and mesh and leatherette earpads that emphasise breathability and comfort.

Yet, it’s the microphone design that truly sets these streaming headsets apart. Both models use a cardioid condenser capsule adopted from our popular 20 Series microphone designs on a flexible boom arm, allowing for ideal positioning even as you move your head. The result is rich, studio quality vocal presence without background noise and output at a consistent level. The mic can be muted quickly and efficiently simply by flipping the boom arm into the up position.

The ATH-M50xSTS is uses a 2m permanently attached cable with 3.5mm headphone input (plus 6.3 mm adapter) and XLR microphone output. The ATH-M50xSTS-USB uses a 2m permanently attached cable with USB-A connection (and USB-A to USB-C adapter) for plug-and-play connectivity to PCs and Macs.

In addition, the ATH-M50xSTS-USB includes an A/D converter with a sampling rate up to 24-bit/96 kHz and sidetone circuitry that lets you hear your voice in the headset (with volume controlled by a dial on the earcup) for a more natural, conversational feel.
