The ATH-M40x Monitor Headphones are part of the highly acclaimed M-series by Audio Tehnica. Even though they're designed for use in critical studio mixing, these can also be used for gaming, DJ’ing, and general music listening . These are not very different from the famous M50Xs, what you miss out on is 5mm on the driver diameter, 4000Hz of frequency response and one less interchangeable cable. The over-ear design seals your music in tightly with their contoured earcups, isolating all the ambient noise with no sound leakage. These monitor headphones have oversized cushioned cups  that cover your ears completely and comfortably. The pro-grade materials used make these durable, these are sure to last you for years. The M40x is as flexible as a headphone can get, the ear cups can be swiveled 90-degrees, allowing for single-ear monitoring. When not in use, the ATH-M40x can be folded down and stored in the included carry pouch. 

  • Sonic Performance by 40mm Large aperture driver

    The drivers used in the Audio Technica - ATH-M40x are 40mm large and custom made drivers with copper-coated aluminum voice coils and rare-earth magnets.

    Accurate Bass Response

    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.

    "Obviously, the ATH-M40x aren’t quite as good as the M50x — if that was the case, Audio-Technica wouldn’t sell both products. It is impressive how close these do get, and stepping outside of the shadow of their bigger brother, this is a great pair of headphones."



    "I beg to differ on the flatness of the M40x, they have no deal-braking colorations but are a far cry from neutrality, I attribute the limited soundstage to the angled drivers, they move the stage slightly to the front sacrificing the depth and width."



    "They are really detailed and have a lot going for them, like the fact that they come with both a coiled and straight cable. So if you like having cord options, great lows, and mids with a little added oomph in the high end, at $99 the ATH-M40x are a solid choice."

Very good

I am satisfied with the services of headphone zone. The product which I have got was well packed and brand new. It was delivered before estimated time. Service is very fast. Only I think experts to whom I have talked before buying this headphone could be better.
They should get more knowledge about the sound and headphones.
Otherwise headphonezone services are the best.
I have great experience with headphonezone.

Fantastic sound ; fragile design

I had first decided to buy the athm50x. But i saw reviews saying the m40 s we're flatter sounding. Hence i bought it via headphone zone. The packaging was excellent!! The headphone performs well no matter what you throw at it. Pink floyd sounded heavenly in these headphones. Accurate sound reproduction. But i gave this a four star because of its build quality. Its just such a flimsy design and its prone to breakage. Removing the headphones with one hand is a big no no!! The comfort is not the best but good.
In short if you want to sacrifice portablity and comfort a little for great sound, hands down the best headphone in this price range. Audiophiles.. this one's for you guys :).

Totally worth it.

It's amazing to see how good these headphones are. Tight bass, clear flat sound.
Just wished they included a 1.2m cable or at least they provided a way to purchase those.

Slightly lacking comfort

Not much of an enthusiast and these are my first pair. The audio seems great but the comfort can be lacking. I feel the burden between 30 to 40 minutes max.


This was the sound I was looking for all this while. I already own a pair of swans m50w and 1080-IV! Apparently, these are not headphones but I've always craved for a fuller and honest sound out of my speakers. To be honest, I never really owned a pair good headsets; all that I had was the basic iphone earbuds that you get to listen to music otherwise. Since, I play some music, I always wanted to have a decent set of headphones that I could record and master my music on. I was already aware of audio technicas but was not sure which one to buy, hence, I did some research and settled for these, and man, do they sound good! It blew me the moment I listed some ALAC files on these. The sound is so in your face - true and honest; no unnecessary bass and highs. You'd listen to a song how it was meant to be listened. 10/10 for the sound; 9/10 for the built! Btw - the music I initially tested these with - Welcome to the Jungle - GnR, Come Undone - duran duran, Cabibbean Blue - Enya, Bjork - All is full of love, Pink Floyd - Time.

Good service.

The product, Audio Technica ATH M40x, was delivered to me well in time, and I appreciate it. The product in itself is very good, provides great highs and mids, and decent lows. This is something Metal and Rock fans will surely love. If you're coming from a lower level headset, you're sure to find details in the songs that you'd never have heard before. The headphones are tuned flat, and that is sure to deliver the songs the way the artist intended to. The headphones, though plastic, are quite sturdy, and are sure to last long. It is recommended that you use high quality audio files, and low quality files will sound awful. Hope this small review helps you in making a good choice.
