  • There's but a few bright stars in the sealed headphone universe and fewer yet within reach of budget-conscious headphone lovers seeking a well-priced can that does all things really well. Enter the brazenly competent Audio Technica ATH-M40x, a high-performance sealed [aka closed-back] headphone that studio craftsmen, portable music buffs, pro DJ's and budding audiophiles will all find attractive. The M40x has outstanding clarity and its rich musical detail with cleanly reproduced extension both high & low will surprise many when comparing it to other sealed-back models anywhere near this price. Expect acoustic accuracy fully responsive to the audio signal along with a true presentation of the source quality for precise imaging of your music and recordings. And for those needing listening privacy or thorough noise-blocking on your commutes, the M40 has a solid 'monitoring grade' ambient noise seal when -- combined with top-shelf sound quality performance -- makes these rather unassuming cans amongst the very best 'mid-priced' sealed headphone values in the entire industry in our humble HeadRoom opinion.

    The Audio Technica ATH-M40x headphone comes with three detachable cables of various lengths to accommodate different applications and the collapsible headband design makes for easy portability and convenient storage or transit. The M40x's cool black-matte look with stainless steel ring accents is very professional-looking without being overstated. Plush black pleather circumaural earpads go fully around the ear for most wearers and swivel 180 degrees for easy one-ear monitoring during DJ work or live mixing needs. The single-sided headphone cables exit from the left earcup (nicely eliminating pesky 'Y-cord' tangles) and terminate to a 3.5mm [1/8'] 'mini-plug' straight jack. A full-size 1/4' screw-on stereo plug adapter is handily included with the M40x along with a storage pouch. A free 2-year Audio-Technica manufacturer's warranty is standard when proof-purchased at verified authorized AT dealers -- like us here at HeadRoom since 1992!
