  • Summary: I do not know much about headphones, but figured I'd fill the void and give me basic, Layman's experience. I got these headphones because they were reasonably priced, were well reviewed, and meant for the studio.
  • Pros: Ideal for use in recording music
  • Cons: Not ideal for music playback. Terminated with 1/4" connection only

  • Summary: ATH-M50 prices have gone up (way up) and so the next logical choice was the ATH-M40, which was half the price. ATH-M40 has 40 mm. diaphragms unlike ATH-M50's 50 mm. Otherwise it's a fairly similar model; the accuracy is there too, although they're slightly colder (and faster).
  • Pros: Fairly straight frequency response, excellent dynamic range, quick dynamics.
  • Cons: A bit cold sound with serious headphone amps. Sometimes honky treble.

  • Summary: (Review edited 6/6/13 to add comparison to Sony MDR 7506, additions in bold text).   Disclaimer: My only other good cans to compare these to are Beyerdynamics DT770 (250) and Sony MDR 7506's. I fully realize this review will be biased because of that. So please keep that in mind.
  • Pros: Very comfortable, earpieces both swivel 180 degrees, rugged construction
  • Cons: Underwhelming bass, very forward mids, thin earpads

  • Summary: While the treble can be slightly "honky" (as another reviewer put it) at times, the high frequencies are very clear on this pair of headphones, and one can pick out different instruments.
  • Pros: 11-Foot Cable (Pretty Subjective), Quick Response, Resolute Sound, Clean High-end
  • Cons: Pads & Headband wear easily.

  • Excerpt: На каждой чаше ATH-40fs — по миниатюрному порту резонатора, выполняющего функцию демпфера головки. Гибкое оголовье с теменной подушечкой, похоже, отделано кожей. Чаши вертикально поворачиваются в вилках на 45Ґ. Последние, в свою очередь, можно развернуть на 180Ґ в горизонтальной плоскости.

  • Summary: В звуке привлекают превосходная детальность середины и приятно смягченные высокие. Сильный аргумент «за» - хорошее разрешение сложных хоровых произведений. Длительное прослушивание музыки не утомляет. На каждой чаше ATH-40fs — по миниатюрному порту резонатора, выполняющего функцию демпфера головки.
