Audio-Technica's most popular model of monitor headphones, the ATHM40fs, are engineered with 40-plus years of engineering know-how to provide even, wide response for all your mixing and monitoring needs. Their durable construction and field-replaceable parts makes them a workhorse day in and day out.
Extended Response, Enriched Sound
Do you find the low end often obscured by what you're listening on? Worry no more. These studiophile headphones feature a frequency range extending all the way down to 5 Hz -- below the human threshold for hearing -- so even the deepest bass will come through clearly. They also reproduce frequencies all the way up to 28 kHz (again, outside the human hearing range) for sparkling clear high end. Audio-Technica has been improving electro-acoustic design since 1962, and their depth of experience shows in the performance of these headphones. This quality of sound and frequency response will be a great addition to your audio rig, equally capable as an alternate monitoring source in the studio or in live sound mixing applications.
While lesser headphones use basic stranded copper wire, ATHM40fs headphones feature high-quality litz wire cables. Each strand is individually coated and insulated to reduce signal loss and deliver clean, full-range sound throughout the spectrum. The drivers feature neodymium magnets, CCAW voice coils, and 40mm diameter speakers for clear, undiluted tone from your sound source. The dependable construction and accurate sound reproduction is sure to be a valuable part of your studio for years. All components are easily field-replaceable as well, so any damage that occurs to the headphones can be fixed quickly to get you back to the music right away.
Front and Center (Or Simply To a Side)
Do you get distracted during your mixing sessions when outside noise creeps into your ears? These pro-quality cans feature a closed-back profile -- perfect for close listening so you can focus on the mix and nothing else. One feature which sets the ATHM40fs apart from its peers is rotatable earpieces. This is an ideal, easy solution for isolating half of the stereo image. It's a great way to take a quick listen and evaluate the spread of instruments in the mix.

Audio-Technica has been dedicated to advancing the art and technology of electro-acoustic design and manufacturing since 1962. From a beginning in state-of-the-art phono cartridges, A-T has expanded over the years into high-performance headphones, microphones, mixers, and electronic products for home and professional use. In each new area, the goal has been to create innovative, problem-solving products. The results of these engineering and production efforts can be seen in the effective use of A-T products in a broad spectrum of applications.
