What customers say about "Features"
Audio-Technica ATH-M30X Over-Ear Headphones
  • Sound quality, design and comfort are all top notch
  • The head band is soft and there is good amount of room for adjusting
  • The Ear muffs are mounted on cylinder-like part which allows the muffs to move around 10-15 degrees around their own Y-axis allowing for nice adjusting to head shape.
  • The clarity is best I've ever heard with headphones of this price and the bass is there. I'm not joking you can literally feel the vibrations with less than half the maximum volume.
  • I love the sound quality and wear them for watching movies and gaming sometimes too because it does sound great
Audio-Technica ATH-M40X Professional Headphones - Black
  • Foldable and flexible. Some people will appreciate that feature. Nice clicking sounds when you turn the ear cups and still everything feels super durable.
  • Totally neutral mix, excellent for professional use. I hate the bass boost most of the times and these ones are of the most accurate when it comes to playback.
  • Pretty decent sound stage. You get the feeling different sounds come from varying sources around you.
  • I love being able to change cable, 2 cables inside, also lot of cables available to buy, even with microphones.
  • You can hear all the mistakes, even if you never knew there were any. Stereo imaging is awesome, if something is out of balance you know it and you hate it.
