    Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones:

    I do a lot of mixing under headphones, usually late at night in my home studio. I tried these headphones, and the flat tuning really helps me get an accurate mix right away, where as with some other phones I'll have to go back and change things because I wasn't really hearing what the mix was putting out. Highly recommend these, especially for home studio use.

            Comments about Audio Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones:

            I really love these headphones. I use them in the studio for referencing my mixes, since most everybody uses earbuds, you've gotta at least check your mixes on headphones. I also use it for recording vocals. For years and years, I've always taken 1 can off, so that I could hear my vocals live, and used the other to hear the music, and these headphones make that easy and comfortable. Also, I appreciate the fact that the cable detaches, so I can use the right length cable, and don't flip my lid when a piece of gear cuts my headphone cable in 2.

                    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.
