Overview

Our take on the Audio-Technica ATH-M20x

Audio-Technica's M-series headphones are favorites among recording musicians and music lovers for their great sound, comfort, and affordable prices. The ATH-M20x headphones are ideal for the studio — their closed-back design keeps sound from leaking into live mics, while their over-the-ear fit and thick padding keeps them comfortable during long sessions. The large 40mm drivers are tuned for enhanced low-frequency response, so you get a little extra bass thump in addition to their smooth midrange and high frequencies. You don't have to be a recording professional to appreciate the sound of these headphones — especially given their budget-friendly price.

1 question already asked

I recentlyy ppurchased a set of these headphones and am very pleased with their performance. My main listening position is laying on my bed and with these phones I have been able to do this in comfort. The ear cups fit comfortably, however you will be limited to a side to side head ovement of about 45 degrees before the ear cups come into contact with the pillow but will remain in a suitable listening position. great Headphones, well worth the money. Hope this helps you out in your decision as to whether to buy a set or not. Rick O [ Rick  Nov 29, 2017 ]
