Audio-Technica ATH-M40x Headphones

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 15 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 24 kHz (again, outside the human hearing range) for sparkling clear high end.

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.

High-Quality Construction

The ATH-M40x headphones' drivers feature neodymium magnets, CCAW voice coils, and 40mm diameter drivers 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.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
These headphones are the best I've had. The sound reproduction includes widest range of High-Mids & Low-Mids. As most of you know it's hard to find an affordable headset for recording/mixing/listening in the under $100 range. There comfortable to wear for extended use, I'm a drummer. These headphones are not BASS HEAVY. But you can hear and feel the lows & highs too. Being on a tight budget like so many I'm glad I bought these.
