Released Jan 23, 2014

What's in the box

  • Protective carrying pouch
  • 6.3 mm (1/4") screw-on adapter


The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x are decent headphones with outstanding, studio-quality sound. They feel sturdy and are fairly comfortable but offer no control options for your audio. They also only provide passive isolation, which might not be enough to block the noise of some listeners' commutes.

if you’re looking for a great pair of headphones for monitoring or just for listening to music and you don’t want to drop a bunch of cash, these are a great buy. At $99, the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x are an amazing deal.
