The latest in Bluetooth headphones from Audio-Technica is the ATH-M50xBT2, an update of their super-popular flagship studio monitoring cans.

New features include fast charging, an updated USB-C connection, compatibility with an increased range of high-quality audio codecs and an improved dual-microphone vocal pickup for phone calls and liasing with the built-in Alexa voice assistant. Meanwhile, Bluetooth connectivity has been improved, with users now able to connect wirelessly to two Bluetooth devices at once.

Promised battery life from full charge is now an impressive ~50 hours, and if things get really desperate you can jam in a quick three-hour recharge in a mere 10 minutes.
