Audio Technica ATH-M40FS, headphones

H. Munn, ReviewStream
22 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Prior to these headphones, I used the generic brands that you get for 10-20 bucks in the market. I had the Sennheiser IE-4 earphones reserved for listening to music but after my Sennheiser earphones got shattered during moving, I went on a hunt for a good overall headset that …

Budget friendly headphones with great sound

JRM, Mwave.com
22 January 2011
  • Summary: My budget friendly sound setup consists of a pair of Cerwin Vega front speakers and Boston Acoustics rears connected to an Onkyo receiver with a Dayton sub. While they produce a fuller sound, the ATM40s offer a far cleaner and detailed sound.
  • Pros: Physical attributes: - Very good padding around the ears and top of the head - Pretty lightweight - Good cord length 10-11ft - Reinforced 1/4in connector spring - Rotating earpieces - Easily adjustable headband length - Extremely comfortable Performance: - Amazing mid-ranges and highs, great bass...
  • Cons: - Regarding appearance, the dull plastic parts of the headphones spoil an otherwise pleasing picture - Does not come with a 1/4in female to 1/8in adapter for mp3 players, computers, etc. However, stereo adapters are very inexpensive. - Packaging: not much offered inside the box other tha

  • Summary: These headphones are spectacularly good. Yes, I am exaggerating, but there isn't much to complain and they are dead cheap. Studio Headphone with a flat response? No, I don't record nor do I produce music.

  • 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: 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.

  • 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: 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

Audio Technica ATH-M40FS StudioPhones

8 December 2008
  • Summary: Ever since I received an MP3 player as a gift, I wanted a pair of headphones that were over-the-ear. On-the-ear makes them itch after awhile and earbuds are just uncomfortable for me. First, I tried a pair of Skullcandy HESH. They were comfortable, but the sound was terrible.
