Conclusion: For the price point, they are unbeatable. A little heavy on the bass, but very smooth. Mids are slightly recessed, and highs are crisp and clean. Sound a fit are comfortable, and I can wear them for hours. I've had them for a few months and they've held up well; except for the strain relief spring which pops out easily. Got it back in and keep it there with a bit of heat shrink. While you could use them for studio work, I wouldn't use them for mastering.
Excerpt: I use thee headphone to listen to audio podcasts when commuting on London's very noise underground (subway) system. I had hoped that the large ear-cups would be better at cutting out ambient noise. Otherwise, I find the headset comfortable to use and the build quite strong (this headphone...
Summary: I have used these a couple times out on set and were much better than my last pair. The headband is comfortable and doesn't strangle your head. The cord is the perfect length for standing away from the camera and won't trip you. I also like that the headphones come with a 1/4 in. adapter. The one complaint I have is that they aren't as soundproof as I would like. Otherwise, as a pair of semi-cheap monitor headphones, I am happy with my purchase.
Summary: This is a pretty bad set of headphones. I used to have the Sony MDR-V150s which had decent sound but were extremely tight and uncomfortable. I bought these to get some high-end sound quality and some comfort. Unfortunately the ATH-M30s could give me neither.
Sound quality: Highs and mids were quite clear and sounded pretty good, but bass is virtually nonexistent.
Summary: Originally purchased as a replacement back up headphone set for productions, it is a little bit clunky but has a nice ear cup design. The sound is clear and relatively flat with a slight boost of bass due to its over the ear design that makes it sound better for certain recording situations.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Powerful, Professional Functions
Summary: I've head these headphone for about three or months, I haven't looked back on my purchase.
I listen to a lot of electronic music, these headphones makes ambience more smooth and relaxing, it also has powerful bass. For those people who are complaining that the bass isn't boomy enough, you can easily produce the boomy bass by adjusting a few equalizer settings in your media player.
The product is well designed, it doesn't have cheap wiring which is a huge plus.
