          Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones:

          Audio Technica has made an excellent pair of reference headphones that can be used in professional studios or are affordable enough for home studios. With a closed ear design and a flat frequency response, these headphones give you an accurate portrait of your recordings allowing you to know exactly how your mix sounds. They even have a 90° rotating cups so even DJ's could use them as long as they don't mind the flat response. Super popular headphones, I urge anyone looking for a professional yet affordable option to check these out at Sam Ash today!

            Awesome Headphones

            Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones:

            The Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones are great when you need to do some studio work and hear what the mix will actually sound like. They are very clear with great sounding highs and lows so nothing gets overpowered. The detachable chord is great so if it wears out you can just replace it.

              These are currently my favorite headphones. Good balanced sound allow you to record for hours with no ear fatigue. A sufficient amount of bass and treble frequencies make these a good choice for practicing with electronic drum kits.

                Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones:

                For any headphones in this price range these are definitely at the top of the list. The overall clarity, quality, and frequency response are incredibly true and accurate. whether you want them for DJ use, casual listening, or for studio use they will stand up to the task. Detachable cable also allows for prolong life of the headphones as it can be replaced if it goes bad.

                    This headphone is amazing! I was blown away with how accurate and neutral this headphone is. My friend has the M50's and they sound awesome too but I chose the M40X since they are much more accurate and this is the way the music was supposed to sound. It has a rich and tight bass that is a pleasure to hear. The mids and vocals are marvelous and are very clear. The highs and heavenly and unlike the M50's, these headphones are not tuned to give an emphasis on the highs like the M50's which in my opinion is great since you get an overall extremely balanced sound.
