Summary: I bought these a few years ago because so many different people in the pro audio world had recommended them. Before this I had used Sony 7506 and AKG 201s. The ATH-D40fs are just as good of a quality reference headphone monitor as those costing three times as much. They have a big + full sound, and you can use them during tracking and mixing of new music. They're also great DJ'ing headphones because the cups swivel and they take a real beating and never break.
Summary: Looking for something to replace my ipod headphones. I almost got the ath-m40fs, due to the great reviews until someone mentioned that d40fs has enhanced bass so I cancelled my order and got this instead. I was hesitant, because very few reviews were done on this model, but went ahead anyways. If you intend to use this with your portable player, like an ipod, you will need to purchase an adapter to go over the 1/4 plug.
Summary: I've listened on $600 studio reference headphones (in an actual studio) and have a keen appreciation for great quality.
These headphones have been a great joy to use. Their sonic quality is excellent, mid-tones are clear and the high's are articulate. The cups are comfortable and by themselves do a wonderful job of blocking exterior noise.
Summary: I have used these particular headphones for approximately a decade.Comfortably padded and they fit my normal head size well, I've worn them for many hours at a time.They handle high volumes well (metal) with little distortion and if you somehow manage to blow out the voice coils or cut the cord it's all easily replaced unlike other headphones in this price range.Great quality on the cord, not one of those tiny little flimsy things (like Sennheiser has) that break easy,...
Excerpt: Покупал эти наушники примерно 2002 году. Слушал около 10 наушников: senheisener, sony и др. (в этой ценовой категории). Ни одни наушники не произвели впечатления, в частности басов. Если Вы не слушаете тяжелую музыку, то смысла нет в покупке этих наушников. В этих наушниках выделены басы. Наушники почти идеальны для прослушивания тяжелой музыки (Death metall, trash metall и т.п.). На данный момент времени 2013 год, лично я доволен качеством звука и сборки.
Pros: выраженные басы, цена.
Cons: очень тонкое покрытие ушей и обода. Через 3 года пришлось содрать все до поролона.
