DESCRIPTION

PURE. PROFESSIONAL. PERFORMANCE.

The M-Series ATH-M40x professional monitor headphones are tuned flat for incredibly accurate audio monitoring across an extended frequency range. Now enhance your studio experience with superior sound isolation and swiveling earcups for convenient one-ear monitoring.

Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x

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

The drivers used in the ATH-M40x are 40mm large and custom made drivers with copper-coated aluminum voice coils and rare-earth magnets. They're fine tuned to deliver a superior sonic experience!

Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x

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.

Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x
Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x

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.

Headphone-Zone-Audio-Technica-ATH-M40x

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.

    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.

    Great piece of art

    I am no studio person or a mixer or a DJ and far away from all technicalities. I am just a general everyday listener who knows what I want from my sound. I like to experiment with my sound and after listening to skull cracking bass from the Sony XBs for a few years I shifted to Sennheiser and then Phillips which makes decent audio equipment. But every time I would watch a review of any headphone, this guy popped up in my search on web and streaming sites, so I decided to give it a go.

    Yes these are flat sounding and its a real joy to listen to them!!! I came from Sennheiser HD429 so the upgrade was pleasant and sound stage wider in comparison. If you are upgrading you will surely notice more meat in your sound. The bass response is tight and ample of it but if you are looking for a bass extension even after the bass beat is over on the track then this should not meet it. Highs are really crisp and if you are coming from warm sounding phones then they may hurt you (depending on ear sensitivity). Vocals get an equal opportunity to perform but are not overly done (I like shining vocals, coz I use my phones for movies mostly - So dialogues). In short, YOU GET WHATEVER IS THERE ON THE TRACK, TO ITS FULL CAPACITY. NOTHING EXTRA ON LOW OR HIGH.
    So if you want to listen to what the recording artist put on track then this one is for you. Look no further, just click "Buy Now". Hope it helps.

    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.
    Thanks.

    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.

    Very disappointing!

    I have used these for a year now. Also used M50x. I have to say these suck. All the hype on these headphones are nauseating. Sennheiser HD280 Pro are miles ahead of these headphones.
    Yes, I own 280 Pro too.

    Did not buy these headphones from HPZ.

    No more headphone search

    I bought M40x in HPZ for 8999 may be higher cost. But worth it.
    Sound quality is crisp and clear, it puts an end to my headphone search and made no use of my existing headphones and earphones.
    It will showcase the bad quality of songs clearly and the same if you listen to FLAC or Apple music you will love it. Even prime music is not good for M40x, and plug it to iPhone or Samsung it will take u to different word. Tried with Sony AV receiver and it was loud and clear.
    One word about HPZ is "BEST"

    Completely satisfied with both product and service.

    A winner - Awesome sound clarity at affordable price

    First of All HPZ delivery : top class - end to end it just took 2 days
    Sound quality: Top notch clarity. I do not know why M50x is a best seller and very popular. M40x has a neutral sound signature and so real. If you listen to M50x you will feel the sound is a bit muffled, but in M40x - it is just clear neutral. I have not yet burned in the headphones yet -- but it is getting there. Only the Beyerdynamic Dt770pro rival it better - which comes at a higher price, is not foldable and has fixed cable which is very long. M40x is foldable at the ear cups, has 2 detachable cables (one coiled and one straight). Note that the earphone end of the cable is a lockable 2.5mm.
    If you want to hear crystal clear sound - then this is it, at this price point. you can use it as a monitor and also enjoy music (unless you like boosted Bass). I have had multiple earphones, headphones mostly from reputed brands - but this is my best so far at much lesser price. i am sure this will sound even better after the burn in period.
    This is a winner in my opinion.

    We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. We look forward to serving you again.

    well balanced sound

    Amazing headphones. I own a Hesh 2 wireless too. On my phone I have experienced that hesh 2 gives better bass but spoils the audio for everything else. ATH M40X is extremely good for vocals and feels balanced even when run by a phone without any additional amplifier in place. The bass is not bad, but rather it does not dominate the audio.
