Artist, producer, and mix engineer, DIDI, puts two pairs of Audio-Technica headphones through their paces in her studio, ‘The Den’.
When I first tried out my Audio-Technica M70x, the first thing that came to mind was: this is a really great headphone. I am already a big fan of the brand’s M50x model - I have a couple of pairs in my studio, so whenever I’m working, the artist and I always have a true reference point – so I was looking forward to having a go to see the difference.
There are two main points that I would like to make about the M70x, and that’s the ergonomics and the sound quality. I have been using the M50x for about two years now, and although I love them, the difference in sound quality when switching to the M70x is really noticeable; it seems to have a different presence to it, which really brings a lot more clarity to the audio that you are listening to, making it very good for monitoring in particular.
