I am very happy with them. I am an instrumentalist and a music teacher. I want to hear a pure instrument sound that is not distorted. I want it to sound like I am sitting in the same room with the live band. These cans do that! I am blown away! They are very comfortable even with glasses. My only concern is the reports that the ear & head pads deteriorate rapidly. I did some research and that is a common complaint with other earphone manufacturers as well. I read that sweat is the main enemy of pleather. I also read that if you wipe the earphones down with a soft cloth sprayed with Windex it will add to the life of the pads.
I've been recording for over 30 years, and these are, by far, the best flat/monitor, headphones for the price. I often use these for final mixes. Then take it to the monitors. The phones are surprisingly close. And, they are nice and punchy if you like, with very little, if not at all, noticeable distortion at every level.
I am thoroughly pleased with these phones. They're well-constructed, comfortable and sit completely on top of your ears as advertised, they drown out nearly everything outside of the headphones! The one gripe, though its a minor one, is that I wish AT had a locking mechanism on the swivels for the ear cups. They don't, so, it may or may not annoy you a bit, but its a small con in the scheme of things. They provide a good clean sound, not too much bass, that you'll be able to mix your music off of or just jam out with! The gold plated 1/4" jack is great as most phones don't come stock with one!
These headphones are excellent. They are an ideal choice for someone looking for quality without breaking the bank.
These aren't the best headphones I've ever worn, but for that price they're the best go-to 'phones I've ever owned. For nuanced, detailed collaborative work where playing over the monitors is not an option, it's good to have a pair of these (or two) on hand.
Great product at a great price, very comfortable, perfect for recording and monitoring cause it has a FLAT response. This is the first pair of serious headphones i own but, I would definitley buy them again if i was on a budget.
wow I like these!! I didn't buy them for studio mixing or DJ use I just bought these to plug into my Line 6 Spider III 30W amp so I could play without disturbing anyone. If I wanted to hear my amp sound good I would have to have it up so loud that the neighors down the street would hear me. These phones allow me to hear my guitar amped the way I want but silent. I play with alot of distortion so if you do too beware dont blow your ears out with these things. Again I really like the flat frequency curve these are reported to have so you can plug into your stereo and hear your CDs, records, tapes!? exactly as it was recorded and intended to be heard. I am far from an expert but true sound is important to me and I think I bought the right phones. If you like bass boost these are not for you buy some dynamic phones.
Amazing headphones! I didn't want to spend excesses of $100+ for a set of headphones. I tried several lower prices brands and found these to deliver more punch and sonic goodness where others fail. Every nuance of each instrument can be heard with amazing clarity...be it yourself jamming or listening to a CD. The price tag is excellent for the quality of Sound. If your like me, sound is EVERYTHING! Get these headphones ASAP!
I have used a pair of these Audio Technica ATH-M40fs headphones in my project studio for about four years now. They have an extremely flat response curve and I find that I can get a mix in the ballpark using these and then use nearfields for final tweaks and adjustments. I also use them for tracking and find that they work well as an all-around headphone set in the studio. The cables are truly field replaceable. I have stepped on the cable two different times while moving quickly around my studio in such a way that the cord received an extremely sudden tug that would have broken any cable. On both occasions I called Audio Technica and for a relatively nominal fee they sent me replacement cables that were easy to install. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a mid-level pair of all-around studio headphones.
These are good all purpose headphones for the money. I have used then for both tracking and mixing and they do work fairly well for both. Their flat response makes them a little unexciting. This should be noted especially when tracking since if you want the best performance you want your headphones to have an exciting mix in them. With mixing I more use them as another listening too. On detail they really can?t compare to some good near field monitors, but what do you expect!
