Audio-technica M-Series Goes Wireless with ATH-M20xBT Studio Headphones

The introductory model to Audio-technica's acclaimed M-Series studio headphones, the ATH-M20x, is now available with Bluetooth.

The wireless over-ear headphones retain their sound signature while offering an impressive 60 hours of runtime on one charge, multi-point pairing, a low-latency mode, and a USB-C connection. Welcome additions include a USB-C connection and USB Type A/Type C charging cable (plus a 1.2m wired cable) and the option for a ten-minute fast charge that yields up to three hours of continuous playback.

Since the inception of the ATH-M50xBT, Audio-technica has proven that it's possible to have studio-quality sound in a wireless headphone, without compromising on features and battery life. The ATH-M20xBT offers the same sonic performance, durability and great value as the ATH-M20x, but with all the benefits of Bluetooth wireless technology.

The company says that the closed-back housing combined with 40mm drivers delivers natural, full-range audio, perfect for all music types and styles. Newly added to the M20xBT, though, are the buttons on the left earcup allowing control of play, pause and skip audio functions. The left earcup also houses the built-in microphone for phone calls.

With the option of multipairing, listeners can connect up to two devices simultaneously to quickly switch between them without having to disconnect. In addition, thanks to the low latency mode, users can now enjoy streaming videos and playing games without lag.

Available now, the Audio-technica ATH-M20xBT sells in Australia for $169 RRP.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
