Excerpt: I bought these headphones and a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770 pads for them. I think these headphones are the best bang for the buck... especially when the bang is BASS. The Q40's have a large bass extension that will reveal very low frequencies that you never thought existed in the song. You might be thinking that the mid range must be recessed in comparison, but alas no! The mids are great! Very clear vocals in every song.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Detachable cable, Durable, Good Bass, Good mids, Good Value, Great Sound, Isolation, Portable, Stylish
Cons: Clamping Pressure, Long cord, Recessed Highs
Excerpt: Just what I was looking for working with my music Digital Audio Workstation. The highs, mids and lows are fantastic.Headphones sit very snug on my head and also around the entire ear. Good noise cancellation!!Excellent price too! Saw on another site for more $$ than B&H!That's why I shop only here!
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: I needed new headphones for my modest DAW music workstation. I saw these on another website where I purchase most of my music server hardware.They are priced much higher than B&H.<br />Awesome sound, great bass, fits nice and snug on my head, fully surrounds my ears.<br />Sounds are crisp and clear.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: I use these mostly to mix songs and recordings, but also to just listen to music. They sound better than the AKG k240s or any similar pair. The Q40s block much more outside noise than any similar headphones, and the sounds are reproduced very accurately. Not extremely tight fitting, but somewhat uncomfortable after a few hours of wearing them.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
Excerpt: These are just great headphones and seem to be a really good value. I'm not an audiophile, but I found the sound to be very good and clean. There's definitely enough bass. The headphones clamp a little more than is compfortable for me, but I like the wide earcups and I don't find them too uncomfortable, just not as comfortable as possible. The padding on the cups and band is nice. <br />Overall the construction seems very solid, excpet perhaps the cord.
Pros: Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
