Flat Sound Signature

A Flat sound signature offers an accurate presentation of sounds without adding colour to your music. Simply put, this sound signature presents audio without boosting any frequencies. As a result, it’s the most natural-sounding signature and provides the closest reproduction of how a track was recorded and produced. Due to their accurate sound reproduction, flat sound signature headphones are preferred by Music professionals, Sound Engineers and used in professional studios for mixing and mastering music tracks and are also loved by audiophiles for immersive listening sessions. You can listen to Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk & possibly every genre in music.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

For Studio & Professionals

As the name implies, anything branded a studio headphone will have been designed especially for use in a studio setting, with a particular focus on accuracy and transparency for monitoring and mixing. These headphones present an accurate image of your music than ordinary headphones, allowing you to hear every nuance and aspect of your music. Therefore, having a good set of studio headphones is just as important as any other piece of gear in your studio. These headphones provide a fresh perspective to that mix you’ve spent hours working. Essentially, giving you another set of ears.

Needs Amplification

If you plug your wired headphones directly into your phone or laptop, you are probably not hearing them at their best. This usually happens because the amplifier in your phone or laptop is not capable enough to drive your headphones to their best. A dedicated headphone amplifier is an elegant solution for this, and it can power your wired headphones to their maximum capability. When you invest in a good pair of wired headphones that are hard to drive, it's worth getting a dedicated headphone amp as it will make your headphones sound even better.

Closed-Back Design

Closed-Back design headphones are completely sealed around the ear cup, which allows the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones will block out a lot more outside noise, yielding much better isolation. Due to this design alone, most closed-back headphones can help reduce about 10 dB of noise. This is the main benefit of closed-back headphones, removing you from the outside environment so that you can focus entirely on the music you are playing. Closed-back headphones usually provide a better “bass” experience, as open backs traditionally struggle in the lows. All in all, these are excellent options for music listening and even studio applications.

The ATH-M30x is tuned flat for incredibly accurate sound monitoring across the entire frequency range spectrum to produce stupendously clear, clean and most of all, reference sound. You can distinctly hear bright sounding vocals and instrumentals in a single track.

Aditya Dhamija (Delhi)
An easy recommendation.

I wanted to get a pair of ATH-M40X after reading all the rave reviews, but went for M30X to save money for my birthday. So, on the big day i ordered pizzas and coke. After passing flat coke to my mortal enemies (teacher and some dumb nuts) and saving the extra cheese pizza for my friends, we decided to party.
Unfortunately, a friend met with an accident (he is alright now), so i called off the plan because I didn't want a hospitalized virgin's evil eye on my birthday and also because i felt bad for him. So, as i was contemplating on the harsh realities of life and pondering incessantly over how i have wasted most of my life chasing material joys albeit watching Johnnh Bravo on Amzon prime. Then the delivery guy came.
i savagely unboxed them with my teeth (or a cutter).On comparing it to my friend's pro 280, M30x are more musical and outright enjoyable. I was under the impression of M30x being a bit muddy and less bassy but i was wrong.
pros-1 have listened to beats solo,sennheiser pro 280(sounds too critical)and Sony xb450 for extended period of time and none of them comes even close to M30x.
2)Lightweight and comfortable.
3) Very cheap for the kind of sound they offer.
Cons-1) High impedance, Get it if your device has a solid DAC and amp. They sound muddy on Oneplus 2 but sound great on HTC 10.
2) Slightly warm sound signature, not a con but putting it out.
3) Sound stage is not expansive. It's not bad by any means.
Summing it up:
1) Highs-8.5/10 (better than the high i was supposed to have at the pub).
2)Mids-9/10
3)Bass-8.5/10 (not boomy like beats but punchy and controlled)
The added functionality of M40X with replaceable cable and lesser impedance to drive are attractive features. If you have the dough then for the M40x.
If you want something under 5k then M30x is your best bet. And don't think that you are compromising on sound quality. These just sound so right! I would pick them over pro280 (which is for 4k on amazon), beats and Sony

A Bass lover's perspective

Before upgrading to a studio monitoring style headphones, I was used to bass heavy headphones and trust me, these headphones won't disappoint you at all if you have already changed your mindset to listening to much more balanced sounding headphones. Lows, mids and highs are nicely balanced . There is enough amount of low end for a bass lover. Though, the mids are a bit muddy in the 400-1 kHz range. Genres like rock might not sound great as you won't enjoy the snares and guitars. But, for those listening to electronic music, these are perfect for the price point. I do some casual DJing too and these can be a little bulky and uncomfortable (not a problem for me). For longer usage, oh man, these things do get sweaty. There is absolutely no sound leakage even at the maximum volume and they do cancel external noise but to some extent. All in all, they can fulfil my purpose of producing electronic music and DJing. And yeah the 15Hz sinewave on these sounds unbelievably crazy.

Absolute Bliss!

I had been using Apple and Creative earphones all my life. And then, I got these.

The difference in listening experience is so huge that you will wonder why you didn't get these headphones so long ago. Its like you have been driving a Maruti 800 and then suddenly, someone handed you a Ferrari. Audio Technica Headphones are that good. With these headphones, you literally feel the music. It's just pure, unadulterated sound.

If you got four grand to spare, buy these headphones. The best buying decision I ever made.

A Headphone for those who appreciate pure sound of music.

I bought this headphone for mastering and monitoring purpose.
It has a very rich sound.
The highs are well balanced.
The mids are good, but I' had much more expectations on it.
The headphone is bass heavy for monitoring purpose.
But it isn't overpowering.
Overall the sound stage is good for the price. I can say it's the best deal for the price.
The build quality it's superior.
The comfort is good enough.
The cable length is approx 3mtrs.
Thick cable.
Light weight.
Overall.. if you wanna enjoy music with its full potential.
Go for this headphone.
