Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x

40MM DRIVERS WITH RARE EARTH MAGNETS AND COPPER-CLAD ALUMINIUM WIRE VOICE COILS

HITS THAT SWEET SPOT FOR BASS

The M40x is tuned flat for incredibly accurate sound monitoring across the entire frequency range spectrum to produce stupendously clear, clean and most of all, balanced. You can distinctly hear bright sounding vocals and instrumentals in a single track - which creates a large sense of scale that’s obviously the exact opposite of cluttered and muddy-sounding audio.

CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING AND ROBUST CONSTRUCTION


The M40x, even though made of plastic, is known for its use of high quality textured matte construction and overall solid durability. The Pro grade material has been used for the ear cups as well as the headband.

90° SWIVELING CLOSED-BACK EARCUPS FOR ONE-EAR MONITORING


The cups literally contour your ears and place them inside an air-tight enclosure that feels plush and comfortable. There is no pressure being placed against your ears as a roomy interior is provided. Circumaural design contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments.

STRAIGHT AND COILED SINGLE SIDED CABLE OPTIONS


The M40x includes two cable options: 1.2 m - 3.0 m coiled cable and 3.0 m straight cable. The 3m straight single-side cable is designed to make the headphones convenient for studio tracking, mixing and field recording. They are very convenient in terms of usage and make life simple.

Punchy bass and detachable cables. The ATH-M50x are the absolute best headphones one can buy in this price range, and we really don't need to suggest any alternatives.
