    Editor's Rating: 5 out of 5

First successful foray into the world of wireless headphones with active noise reduction for the Elite 85h. This model is a very serious alternative to the tenors that are the QC35 II and WH-1000XM3, even if it is still a little behind in terms of comfort, rendering at the highest frequencies and active noise reduction. Those who can invest a little more for the very best comfort and listening experience will turn to the WH-1000XM3, unless multipoint pairing is absolutely essential.

Strong points

  • Impeccable sound reproduction over a large part of the audible spectrum (precision, definition, balance).
  • Good distortion/power control.
  • Very intuitive use, complete controls.
  • Sound+ app at the top.
  • Neat design, foldable.
  • Complete accessories.
  • Stable Bluetooth connection, multipoint.
  • Extremely generous autonomy (over 36 hours).
  • Weather resistance guaranteed for 2 years.
  • Excellent quality hands-free kit / HearThrough mode.

Weak points

  • Treble with a somewhat “chemical” aspect, which lacks detail.
  • Deployment of the arch a bit tight for large heads.
  • No passive wired use.
  • Imprecise volume adjustment (not less than +/-4 dB per button press).
  • Bluetooth latency.

How the pricing table works

Thanks to many well-regarded ergonomic improvements, this new version of the Audio Technica ATH-M50xBT is proving to be a real pleasure to use on a daily basis. In the end, it doesn’t lack much to be close to the best nomadic helmets on the market: a slightly more detailed reproduction and, to a lesser extent, a more careful design and a little more insulation would undoubtedly have opened the door to it. gate of the ultimate star. Don’t get me wrong though: this ATH-M50xBT2 is still an excellent choice for anyone who wants to buy portable Bluetooth headphones without active noise reduction.
