headphones

To celebrate Audio-Technica’s 50th Anniversary, A-T has introduced a special limited edition ATH-M50s/LE Anniversary Headphone in a silver-colored metallic finish.

Showcased at the Winter 2012 NAMM show, the ATH-M50s/LE headphones clearly show that Audio-Technica has outdone themselves. This limited edition offering from Audio-Technica’s impressive line of 50th anniversary products boasts a remarkably broad and transparent frequency response range and luxurious ear cushioning that ensure a comfortable fit, especially over long mixing/recording sessions.

It’s apparent that Audio-Technica designed these beauties for professional mixing and monitoring due to the closed-back cushioned earcup design, which creates a superb seal and a true sense of immersion. These special headphones are also conveniently collapsible for portability and can be stored in the included protective pouch. For the DJs reading this out there, you’ll be happy to know that the circumaural ear pieces easily swivel 180° for efficient single-ear monitoring and offer a firm seal for the necessary amount of environmental isolation. The ATH-M50s/LE also utilize a straight cable that connects to the left earpiece that terminates with a gold-plated mini-plug (or with the included screw-on ¼” adapter plug).

The ATH-M50s/LE headphones come with Audio-Technica’s sophisticated and proprietary 45mm large-aperture driver technology and stellar-quality components that deliver exceptional power handling and high SPL capabilities while maintaining sound clarity that puts crystals to shame throughout the audible frequency spectrum. With punchy bass that would knock out Mike Tyson and high-end sure to make you quiver, these headphones feature neodymium magnet systems in their drivers for super-efficient signal transfer. Finally, these headphones are available in black color with coiled cable (ATH-M50), white color with coiled cable (ATH-M50WH), and black color with straight cable (ATH-M50s).

Pick up yours today, because they’re going fast!

Last Week At The Winter 2012 NAMM Show…

Sonic Electronix was at the NAMM show, and here’s just a bit of what we saw:

Picture

Special 50th anniversary edition with stunning traditional urushi lacquer finish, hand-painted Japanese maple leaves, etched-on serial number, and carefully crafted wooden carrying case

 

 

Did you hear that guy say that those microphones were hand-painted with a mouse hair brush? How awesome is that?! Anyway, even beyond its aesthetic appeal, it’s quite an impressive microphone. It’s got a dual-diaphragm capsule, three switchable polar patterns and transformerless circuitry that almost completely eliminates low-frequency distortion.

 

 

 

 

 

ATH-M50s/LE : LIMITED EDITION Professional Studio Monitor Headphones (with straight cable)

Special 50th anniversary edition in silver-colored metallic finish

 

This pair of headphones, while not hand-painted with a mouse hair brush, is another pretty sweet offering from Audio-Technica for their 50th anniversary. They’re collapsible and include a carrying pouch for easy transportation, they boast a frequency response of 15 – 28,000 Hz (8,000 Hz above the range of human hearing – perfect if Fido wants to listen to his favorite doggie tunes on his next walk) and proprietary 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnets. Worth every penny, if you ask me.

Follow Your DJing Dreams With Numark’s iDJ Live

Numark iDJ Live (Box)

The holidays are almost over folks, and if you have any aspiring DJs in your midst, you should definitely consider putting a last minute call to Santa and his elves for the Numark iDJ Live! As stated in the product’s description, the controller is perfect for music lovers who have never tried DJing before. With its streamlined interface, the iDJ Live is designed for beginners and pros on the go and is very much plug-and-play. All you need is an iPad, iPod touch or iPhone (be sure to check the compatibility chart on the product page), the Algoriddim Djay app and you’re all set. Of course, you can always hook the unit up to larger speakers for a better experience, too.

Sounds great! But what would I need for that?

The iDJ Live comes with a dual mono 1/8″ (3.5 mm) headphone/speaker splitter cable, so all you would need is a male-to-male 3.5 mm cable like this: Aux cable
…and some sweet speakers like these:
(You’d be very wise to get a speaker system with a subwoofer.)
Limitless Creations x643

and you’re ready to rock!

About the unit

The iDJ Live comes with dual bass, treble and volume controls, sync and cue buttons to keep your mix tight and two large platters that can be used to either “scratch,” or search through tracks to set cue points. It also comes with a Browse knob that scrolls through your music library the way you’re used to doing with your “i” devices already, so there’s no need to learn a confusing new interface. You can even record your mixes or set Automix mode to let the iDJ Live and the Djay app mix your favorite playlist(s) automatically.

The iDJ Live includes a handy iPad stand as well, enabling you to keep an eye on your screen without having to bend over the controller or having to rig up a shaky DIY stand of your own. Also, as the iDJ Live unit does draw power from the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, it would be in your best interest to save some battery life by turning off 3/4G and/or Wi-Fi, turn off location services like GPS, and adjusting your display brightness. If you’re worried whether or not it’ll get to your house in time for Christmas, if you happen to live in the greater Los Angeles area, you can swing by and pick it up from Sonic Electronix’s will call area up here in Valencia.

That about wraps it up, so on behalf of the team at Sonic Electronix, I’d like to wish you all very happy holidays!
