Audio Technica M-50X Headphones

After being a Sound mixer for close to 20 years I have used many different brand and types of headphones. The classic recommended headphone for years has been the Sony MDR 7506 but I have never been of fan of them due to comfort and tonal quality. For cart based work and non fast pace bag work. I have become a real fan of the Audio Technica M-50 X Headphones for comfort , accurate sound reproduction and durability. One of the other positive attributes of the M-50 is the cable is user replaceable and comes with a straight/ coiled option depending upon what your doing. At a price point of under $150.00 they are also still cheap enough if you lose them its still going to be ok. So if your looking for a new set of headphones check them out from your favorite audio retailer.

New Equipment: Scheops Miniature Microphone MiniCMIT

The Schoeps CMIT has always been one of my favorite microphones with great reach, warm sound and low noise floor. I didn’t think it could be improved but they did by making it smaller. The only copromise is the fixed 4th order low-cut filter at 70 Hz so far I think it is a good trade off. I will post more after using this microphone more but so far it seems like a winner

Tech Tip: Audio Technica ATH-M50x Headphones

Over my 17 year career I have used many types of headphones and by far my favorite is the newer ATH-M50X. They are very comfortable for those who wear and don’t wear glasses, and my favorite part a user replaceable cable. This allows you to swap between a straight cable or coiled cable depending upon what application you using them in. I also had another shorter straight cable made as well. I have been very happy with the headphones and use them for most situation estimated retail price is around $170.00 so check them out. They are far more comfortable them the classic Sony 7506.

New Equipment: Mozegear Qbit XL Timecode Box

Since the introduction of the Mozegear TIG Q28 timecode box  I have been a big supporter of the company and its timecode products. They are cost effective, solid, easy to use and have user replaceable batteries. With the current hostile RF landscape I am not in favor of having active timecode boxes that require either a WIFI or Bluetooth link. The TIG Q28 have been very solid for me my only criticism of the boxes is only being able to get around 13 hours with Eneloop rechargeable AAA so with the occasional long day I would have to change the batteries or use alkaline AA. With the Qbit XL that is no more with a built in user replaceable NP-50 battery you can get up to 30 hours on a single charge via the Hirose charging port. The size and weight of these new boxes is great too. So if your looking for a small simple timecode solution and cost effective timecode solution you should check these out They come in either BNC or Lemo 5 Pin
