What customers say about "Size & Weight"

  • I actually find them to be more comfortable than most I've tried.
  • So to sum up, I love these! Beautifully presented, comfortable, and very impressive.
  • I've only had them a short while but the build feels good and i dont see any obvious signs that they are likely to fall apart any time soon.
  • Have used Grado phones for years - excellent response, reasonably lightweight and comfortable
  • "I like the looks, the size can be easily adjusted, and it stays in place "
Audio-Technica ATH-M40X Professional Headphones - Black
  • Reeeeally comfy, I wear them for hours and almost forget about their existence. Lightweight and not too tight.
  • So after more than a year a review still stays. Sound is amazing. Build quality amazing.
  • Excellent build quality and presentation. Everything feels premium and durable.
  • They're pretty big, and you will be noticed in public. As for comfort it's very dependant on fit.
  • Seems to be very well built and the sound quality is great all the way from the bass, mids and treble.

What customers say about "Features"
Grado SR80e Prestige Series Open Backed Headphone
  • I personally love the function first approach. What you can't fail to be blown away by is the sound quality.
  • The soundstage and presence it uncanny, just like cleaning your windows to the sound. I was a bit reluctant to buy these because I have headphones for 3 times the price.
  • This is the sort of sound you expect from a high end speaker setup, not two little speakers that sit over your ears.
  • These continue to sound better with time. Amazing detail, accurate reproduction of recordings.
  • If you love audio, or you're someone that spends a lot of time listening to high quality music, you'll appreciate the sound that comes from these.
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.
