Good for most things

Tyler H., Newegg
29 December 2013
  • Pros: Well priced and super comfortable. You can really wear these for hours and it won't hurt your head. Sound is usually pretty good but in some circumstances the sound can be a bit muddy. Nothing unexpected for a headset this price though. If you're just listening to youtube videos and a bit of musi...
  • Cons: Bass is weak loose and disappointing, if you listen to songs with a lot of bass I suggest going with something else, these won't cut it for you.

Audio Technica ATH-M40FS, headphones

H. Munn, ReviewStream
13 September 2013
  • 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 …

  • Summary: Make sure you have a 6.3" to 3.5mm converter if you need it.
  • Pros: Great quality, even after 2 years. Comfortable too. I use them for audio mixing, and I couldn't be happier with the performance of these headphones.
  • Cons: Headband is starting to wear quite badly, almost all of the vinyl has come off. "shines"

They're nice for a little awhile...

Cody T., Newegg
19 March 2012
  • Summary: While the sound is quite good they are just uncomfortable for longer than an hour and give a low to mild neck fatigue. The cord seemed to bring this items downfall (well and comfort).
  • Pros: For a short time these headphones are comfortable. Good sound quality. Good isolation.
  • Cons: They are bit weighty. After about an hour your ear will hurt a lot. The cord isn't secured well and after a short time the position the cord was in would effect if the left earphone played at all. Your ear will get very hot.

AT Headphones

Andrew H., Newegg
4 February 2012
  • Pros: They are comfortable
  • Cons: Not overly impressed with audio quality. I wanted some cheap headphones to listen to some podcasts/etc, so they worked. I was hoping for better overall sound, but for the price, cannot complain.

Solid Headphones

Michael B., Newegg
18 December 2011
  • Pros: I'm not really one of those super picky audiophiles, but I think these sound great. They're very comfortable for a long time. They can easily manage the range of pitches that a normal user would throw at them.
  • Cons: Only thing is they have a large stereo jack, so you'll need an adapter to listen to your iPod or PC. I wouldn't expect them to have a 3.5 mm jack, but it would have been nice if they included the adapter with the headphones.

Awesome!!

Scott, Newegg
28 July 2011
  • Summary: I live right below my parents so at night when I have to be quiet headphones are my life line cause I'm always gaming or listening music. Bought these to replace my deteriorating Sony MDR-V600 that my dad gave me. This pair blows the sonys out of the water, I am very pleased.
  • Pros: Comfortable, loud, no distortion, long cord. Replaceable ear pads, cables and drivers. Whats not to love.
  • Cons: none

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
