Audio-Technica debuts the the ATH-WB2022 wireless headphones.

The Audio-Technica ATH-WB2022 is the world’s first wireless set of headphones to feature a fully balanced output system.

The limited-edition ATH-WB2022 is the finest Bluetooth headphone ever created by Audio-Technica and features the world’s first completely balanced audio output system for wireless headphones. The ATH-WB2022 is exquisitely crafted from layered woods and supports up to 24-bit/96 kHz high-resolution music listening.

The ATH-WB2022’s newly-developed balanced audio output system is entirely unique. It employs two leading-edge ESS ES9038Q2M DACs, one for each channel. Two top of the line Nisshinbo Micro Devices’ MUSES05 op-amps are used for each channel for the input and for the output stage, in a fully balanced configuration to ensure unmatched channel separation, imaging, and transient response. In addition, the ATH-WB2022 uses separate, rechargeable batteries for each channel. The ATH-WB2022 also comes with a high-quality Audio-Technica condenser mic for clear audio quality when making phone calls.

MOTU releases the M6 audio interface.

Building on the M2 and M4, the M6 features a 6-input/4-output I/O configuration.

MOTU’s M6 is a new USB-C bus-powered audio interface for Mac, Windows and iOS offering best-in-class audio quality, best-in-class speed (ultra-low latency) and best-in-class metering with a full-color LCD. With more I/O than the M2 and M4, the 6-input/4-output M6 features four mic/line/hi-Z guitar inputs with individual preamp gain and 48V phantom power, two additional 1/4-inch analog inputs, one-touch hardware (direct) monitoring of all inputs (in mono or stereo), four 1/4-inch balanced analog outputs, two headphone outputs with independent volume, MIDI I/O, and “loopback” driver channels for live-streaming and podcasting.

The M6 also features an A/B monitor switch, unique to its class, to compare mix output on two sets of studio monitors. Driven by ESS Sabre32 Ultra DAC Technology, both headphone outputs mirror the signal on Monitor Outs 1-2 and feature independent volume control. The second headphone output includes a 3-4 switch that allows it to independently monitor Line Outs 3-4, which can provide a completely separate mix from the computer.

With bus-powered operation for USB-C computer hosts, the M6 includes a multi-blade international DC power adapter that allows the M6 to provide stand-alone monitoring, without a computer.
