We're always on the lookout to create beautiful, functional accessories to complement your headphones, earphones or players.
The Audio-Technica M-Series is possibly India's most popular choice for studio professionals. They're easily the most preferred monitoring headphone for even beginners. It's priced very affordably, have a decent build, and their flattish response is ideal for recording, mixing and producing any audio.
The biggest ruse all M-Series owners have with their headphones is that, over time, the headband shows extreme signs of wear and tear. We've seen some terribly ugly headbands in our time on headphones like the M50x, M40x, M30x and the M20x.
That's when we realised - these M-Series need a headband sleeve! Having collaborated with The Black Canvas in the past for some fine leather earphone cases, we just knew who we could rely on to create the perfect leather sleeve for your Audio-Technicas.
We're proud to announce that we've created something special with Khyati of The Black Canvas. This leather headband sleeve is the world's first handcrafted leather product meant to custom fit the Audio-Technica M-Series headphones: M50x, M40x, M30x and M20x..
Just as each person has their own unique relationship with music, these headband sleeves are as unique as you are. Since every headband sleeve is made by hand, they don't look identical. The consistency and the feel of the leather varies from sleeve to sleeve and colour to colour. And that's what makes your headband sleeve as unique as you are: just like your fingerprint!
While designing the products, we decided that we needed to shake things up a bit in terms of choice of colours. We've used bright colours like lime green and subdued colours like oxblood. We did this because we understand that everyone has a different personality. Besides, we had to factor in the colours of the M-Series headphones. Now you can pick your favourite colour based on what you like and the colour of your M-Series headphones!.
We decided early on that we didn't want to mass produce these fine sleeves in a big factory. Instead, we wanted to focus on one case at a time by slowly and careful crafting each one. It takes time and is not easy work. Each sleeve is individually handcrafted from the finest quality leather. Being made from 100% real leather, you're bound to find scuff marks and an uneven tone.
They're form fit for all of the M-Series headphones: M50x, M40x, M30x and M20x. Khyati has designed each of the headband sleeves for the most snug fit. During the break-in period of the first few days you may want to be gentle with the leather to help ease it in. We're confident that you will find them equally if not more comfortable than your existing headband. .
Be the first to ask a question about this.
This is a very well made leather headband. But the problem is that the cushion in it is not very soft. The original cushion on ATH M50x and this one both compress together and become a tight rubbery feeling solid mass. This also makes the headphones very very heavy and it puts a lot of strain on your ears and also on the top of your head. It made my headphones very very uncomfortable. So I decided to just get myself a woolen headband which is neither too tight nor heavy. If your original headband is completely torn, only then you should use this. Otherwise this cushion and the original cushion together will compress and make the headphones very very heavy.
My audio technica ATH-M50X headband was flaky. I was looking for a protective sleeve for the headband on the net and luckily I found it on Headphonezone. The Sleeve is well built and I hope it would last long.My only complaint is that, sleeve is little tight and expensive at this price point. Should have been priced under 500 INR.
The fit is perfect and offers a plethora of Colors.
Regarding comfort it's ok.. but not superior to original.
It mainly improves the aesthetics of ATH series
