Great Sound, But Need A Pad Swap


These are a fantastic pair of headphones. Pretty clear sound. I use them a lot for vocal tracking and mix referencing. Not completely neutral in sound, but nothing is harsh or too much. The only thing I would recommend is an ear pad swap. The stock pads are horrible and don't feel good at all. Basically uncomfortable in stock form. I went with ZMF Cowhide pads and they feel amazing. Comfort is fixed with new pads.



Audio Technica ATH-M40X review


I do a lot of mixing under headphones, usually late at night in my home studio. I tried these headphones, and the flat tuning really helps me get an accurate mix right away, where as with some other phones I'll have to go back and change things because I wasn't really hearing what the mix was putting out. Highly recommend these, especially for home studio use.

I really love these headphones. I use them in the studio for referencing my mixes, since most everybody uses earbuds, you've gotta at least check your mixes on headphones. I also use it for recording vocals. For years and years, I've always taken 1 can off, so that I could hear my vocals live, and used the other to hear the music, and these headphones make that easy and comfortable. Also, I appreciate the fact that the cable detaches, so I can use the right length cable, and don't flip my lid when a piece of gear cuts my headphone cable in 2. This is a hands on review from Josh at Sam Ash, Canoga Park.
