Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for studio days, not so much daily listeningI use these headphone for everday use and occasonally for more professional/studio time. The extended ford it wonderful when I'm in the studio and need to move to the far corners.,But is a nuisance when I just want to use my affordable high quality headphones walking across campus. Haven't had any issues with the 1/4 adapter but the 1/8(standard male end) doesn't stay conected to a lot of my mobile devices I would have to apply constant pressure to listen to anything on my phone or mp3. Neither of which have had any issues with my pro beats,sony,Marley and jvc headphones. The ear cups suround your ear making them extemly natural feeling with their light weight stoping the ear soreness i have with my pro Beats after having to sit on my ears for a few hours. The leather seems to be cheaper but considering the under 100 price I'd expect that. Visually they have a cool simplistic non attention drawing look, with the ugly stainless steel adjuster clashing with the matte black look. If I had to buy another pair of professional headphone I probably wouldn't buy the mx30 unless I knew they are going to be my studio only phones. So if your just looking for high quality earphones for daily listing is look into the other headphones techinicq has to offer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love My Audio-Technica HeadphonesI own the 20x's,30x's,40x's, and 50x's and love em all. The 20x and 50x are kind of my favorites. I love the 30 and 40 but the small complaint I have about those are how easily their folding ability works. It is irritating when I pick them up and they fold up on me and I have to un-collapse them. The 20's don't collapse and the 50's are stiffer to collapse and hold their position better. I'll listen in bed when my wife is sleeping and the 30's and 40's make a ratcheting sound when you mess with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost exactly what I had hoped forGoing into this purchase, I knew that for the money I wouldn't be getting mind-blowingly incredible headphones. And the M30x's aren't. But for the price they are really, really good. The sound is crisp?no fuzz, no distortion. Very reliable lows, mids, and highs, which for good monitor phones is par for the course. (For the record, a reliable low isn't a earth-shaking thump, but rather a smooth low tone that lets you really hear the range. These headphones deliver.) Everything I've played through these has been very satisfying. Plus, they're comfy. I can keep them on for an hour+ without a problem. My only nitpick is the cord length. Again, they are monitor headphones, so the cord length is probably to be expected. I'd pay the 2 bucks extra for a velcro cord binder for those of us who don't need quite so much cord. It would be nice to throw something like that in, but with sound quality this good, not a big deal at all. And with these sounding as good as they do, I'll be saving up my money for the 40 or 50. Then we'll talk mind-blowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ATH-M30x Headphones=AwesomeThis is my first Audio-Technica product and I am extremely pleased with it. First of all, for me these are very comfortable, provided with lots of plush padding on the ear cups. Also the shape is absolutely perfect conforming to my ears very well. I can listen to music for about 2 hours straight, at that point my ears are quite sweaty and the cups are warm, but that's an ample amount of listening for me. For the price you guys charge the build quality seems fantastic. I love the fold up feature and nice bag supplied for storage and keeping my headphones dust free. Now the sound. I don't have a great range of experience when it comes to supposed expensive or exotic brand headphones, but I have tried a few, I won't mention their names. These Audio Technica headphones produce incredible sound. The precise true sound reproduction is unlike anything I have experienced. The clarity is what surprised me. What I mean by clarity is, no crackling or fuzziness in the background, just a smooth steady stream of sound. What's interesting is I can tell the differences in quality of the different recording equipment used by various Artists and Bands. How you ask? Because even though the headphones don't produce any aberrations, if the music recorded does the headphones show it. For instance, when I'm listening to Mark Knopfler and Dire Straights the clarity is unreal, when while listening to a disc by Journey there is some background fuzz, very little indeed. Just from basic logic we know its not the headphone, if it were, the fuzziness would be displayed on all the discs not just some. I found this aspect quite neat. I mentioned the true sound reproduction, which is fantastic. I've read some customers complain about these not having enough base. I guess this is subjective to a persons own preferences but I disagree with this evaluation. For instance, when I played the song Radioactive, by Imagine Dragons, which has a lot of base in the song itself the ATH-M30x headphones pumped out the base. Another nod toward the true sound reproduction, if it has lots of base these will display it, what I think these other reviewers might be referring to is the false base that is added in all the songs in other competitor headphones, which doesn't appeal to me. One of the best examples of increased depth of sound is when I listened to my favorite band, Rush. Specifically the song YYZ, which is an instrumental if your unaware. The first time I listened with these headphones, Geddy's base just popped, it was better than I had ever heard that song. I am extremely satisfied with these headphones, I've only owned them for about 3 months, I guess the only unknown for me is waiting to see how long they last, which I hope is awhile. But when they do finally go down you can rest assured that you've gained a lifelong customer. I highly recommend them. Cory W

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for the PriceAbsolutely amazing headphones for someone who is trying to delve into the world of audiophiles. Very noticeable difference when listening to most of my music. Very Durable too. I accidentally slammed my car door on them and they were perfectly fine. Very comfortable to use even after many hours. I didn't start feeling discomfort until after about 6 hours.
