About the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x

Impressive performance from affordable studio headphones

We don't see many over-the-ear headphones at this price point. Of those, few sound as good as the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x headphones. With large 40mm drivers tuned to deliver fine detail with a particular emphasis on those crucial midrange frequencies, these 'phones are great for tracking and mixing vocals as well as guitars and keyboards. For everyday music listening, they'll give your music a nice fat sound that's well-balanced in the highs and lows. Thick padding on the earcups and headband offers comfort that doesn't disappear after just a couple of tracks.

Swiveling, folding earcups and an extra-long cable

The 'M30x headphones feature an extra-long cable that connects to a single earcup, so you can easily maneuver in the studio. A 1/4" adapter is included for plugging into pro gear or your home stereo. The earcups rotate and swivel, allowing for a great fit in addition to single-ear use for recording. These headphones also collapse into a compact form factor so you can stow them in the included carry pouch.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
looks to be what I need at an affordable price. [ Cheri  Mar 20, 2019 ]
A
Bought this for my Brother-in-Law as a gift for a previous Christmas. He's a devout audiophile and LOVES the Grateful Dead. I tried this set out myself and was very impressed. Quality gear here. For me, personally, I like the aspect of the "flat response". It allows for an equalizer to be utilized to suit a preferred listening dynamic. And as such, I am purchasing this item for myself. Thank you kindly for stocking this product. Merriness & Peace be yours this season. [ Paul  Dec 14, 2018 ]

A
I wanted decent but inexpensive over-the-ear headphones to use at work. I have been using the similar Audio-Technica ATH-M40x at home for a few years, and have been happy with them. Based on the comparison between the two models, the ATH-M30x seemed like a good choice which would give me similar performance at a reduced price. [ Samir  Feb 23, 2018 ]
A
I choose this because of all the good reviews. I'm buying this for my husband for Christmas. I don't know anything about headphones so I went by the reviews.

A
Yes, very well.
[ Kent  Nov 30, 2015 ]

I do not have an IPHONE but they work fine in my IPOD. I would assume they would work well in an IPHONE since the audio drivers are probably identical.
