Confused? Don't be, when there's a Guru to guide the way.

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.

Audio Technica - ATH-M40x - Accurate Bass Response

    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.

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.

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.

Good headphone M40x

I have booked it online through headphonezone. This is a very good headphone. Very balance sound.
Lows, mid and highs all are audible properly. Almost flat sound. Very clean and clear sound. Good for monitering and mixing in this price range. But you can also have this headphone if you love music and want to listen good sound quality because it works perfectly fine with all devices like mobile phone, laptop, desktop, mp3 Player and any other musical device.

Simply amazing

This is the best headphones in this range...the best ever..... with the best sound quality
