Cumberland, RI (January 22, 2015)— M-Audio (, synonymous with innovative music production technology, today announced the introduction of two new monitoring headphones, the M40 and M50.

These new models both offer an extremely high level of acoustic performance and noise isolation, making them ideal for the individual looking for a monitor-quality headphone suitable for long studio mixdown sessions, DJ use or critical recreational audio listening.

The M50 Over-Ear Monitoring Headphones feature powerful 50mm drivers for outstanding performance that is totally unexpected at their modest price. They feature a comfortable over-the-ear design for great noise isolation, which is ideal for long hours in the studio monitoring mixdown tracks. With their wide-ranging 28–20kHz frequency response, the M50 headphones deliver the detail and precision needed for every musical style. The leather cushioning on the flexible headband and ear cups provides a fatigue-free listening experience for even the longest-lasting, most demanding sessions. The detachable cable is 6 ft. (1.8m) long and includes a ¼-inch adapter for compatibility with all equipment.

The M40 On-Ear Monitoring Headphones offer much of the performance and user-friendly features of the M50, but at a slightly lower cost. The M40 utilizes highly capable 40mm drivers that deliver an authoritative frequency response of 36-20kHz for great sound on any program material. Like the M50, the M40 also has comfortable leather cushioning on its flexible headband and a 6 ft. (1.8m) detachable cable.

“We recognized the need for truly high-performance headphones that can be used for critical monitoring duties, but at the same time, we understand that budgets are an important consideration,” said J.C. Sutherland, Product Manager for M-Audio. “The new M50 and M40 deliver the high performance that M-Audio’s customers demand, but they also represent an extraordinary value.”

Pricing for the M Series Headphones is as follows:



The M40 and M50 will be available in January 2015 at M-Audio dealers nationwide.
