  • Best Headphones I have Ever Listened To!!

    As reviewed by ilir ivezaj on 5/10/2014

    Alright, so i had these headphones for a good week now and they already seem better then the ones i have owned and listened to before. I have owned sol republic tracks hd, logitech ue6000, soul 150 & 300, SMS audio, and sony mdr v55. I will explain in each catagory: Looks: I love the looks because it seems to have a classic and professional look. Thats a good thing to me because right away people will know, your not messing around when it comes to music. I have worn these in my college class and I did not feel self conscious at all because usually people say you can not wear these at school since there professional headphones. Durability: These headphones are covered in strong plastic, not that cheap plastic were it will break easily. The hinges feel really durable. The headphones itself also feel durable when I stretch them out, but i haven't did a full 180 flat because thats dumb. Comfortability: Your ears feel at home when using them because it goes right inside the ear muff and I have pretty big ears. Inside of the muffs, it has a cushion over the speaker and not just a thin material. The leather also feels comfortable for long period of use. My ears has not sweated yet for wearing them for a good 2 hours. Sound: IF YOUR A BASS HEAD, UPGRADE TO THE M50X. Since we got that over with, these sound amazing. They have great bass in my opinion because I do not like to much bass. The highs and mids are perfect, while the lows are great, not perfect. You will notice things in your music that you never knew it was there, for example, listing to Vast - Touched, I noticed a electric guitar in the middle of the song and I never knew it was there. The Clarity is what makes these headphones perfect in sound quality. I honestly would pay more then $100 because there are headphones out there that cost a lot more like $400 that do not even sound as good. Thats about it, sorry for the essay!!

  • High Quality Build & Sound

    As reviewed by John on 11/25/2014

    After unboxing these headphones, I was pleasantly surprised: Although mostly plastic, the materials feel substantial, but still light in weight. In the box are, not just one, but two quality, detachable cables, one coiled and one straight (both with gold-flashed 1/8" & 1/4" connectors). In addition, a small, but nice touch is the leatherette storage pouch. Head & ear fit is easy to adjust. Comfort is high enough to wear these for hours of studio time. The tilting earpieces allow for one-ear monitoring, a nice option. Isolation is very good, so the monitor mix won't leak into a hot mike. The sound quality is excellent. But do not expect the "tweaked sound" of Beats or Bose cans. As the description mentions, these are "tuned flat" and Audio Technica delivers on that promise. Sound coloration by the phones is virtually non-existent. Therefore, what you hear is correct - a good mix will sound good; a bad mix will sound bad. These are also excellent for listening to recorded music, just be prepared to hear subtle details in your favorite songs you didn't realize were in the mix (e.g. listen to Steely Dan's "Two Against Nature" album on these to see what I mean - Nice!). These headphones are an excellent buy and very highly recommended!

  • Love em!

    As reviewed by Shannon on 1/12/2015

    Worked on a song in the studio using the M50X's, fell in love with those. Then I received the M40X's as a gift. In my opinion these sound just as good as the M50X's & are just as well made, these are a bit more petite in size, which works great for me, because I'm a petite person. They sound extremely clear, have a great range ,dimension & deep bass. When I wear these I seriously can't hear anything out side of the headphones even with no music playing, so they have great sound isolation. I also like how you can rotate the earcups individually.
