CES 2023 has served as the framework for audio-Technica to present the new professional streaming headphones. We are mentioning the rookies ATH-m50xsts StreamSet and the ATH-M50xSTS-USB StreamSet. The occasion also served for the company to show its satisfaction with the reception given to the news about the limited edition of the Sound Burger portable turntable.

They are also equipped with two sets of M50x ear pads that take audio quality and sound insulation to another level. In addition, they also come with mesh and leatherette pads to provide greater comfort.
