If you're a musician or a DJ, you probably spend plenty on gear. Fortunately, you don't have to spend much to get a great pair of headphones.

Solid construction for everyday use

Working musicians and DJs need headphones that are tough.

They're also very comfortable, with thick padding on the headband and earcups and a swiveling design that helps them conform to your head. The earcups can rotate a full 90 degrees, so you can use them for single-ear monitoring in the studio or the club.

Features

Overview: The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x Professional Monitor Headphones feature a closed-back, over-the-ear design for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. The sturdy ATH-M40x is designed for use for studio recording or mixing, as well as DJ-ing. The ear cups swivel 90° for one-ear monitoring, and fold inward for storage in the included vinyl storage pouch.

Cable: The ATH-M40x has a single cable exit on the left ear cup with two detachable cables. The straight cable is over 10 feet in length (125"), while the coiled cord extends from 3.9' to 9.8'.

A screw-on 1/4" (6.3mm) adapter is included for those times when you're listening to home or professional components with a full-size headphone jack.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I compared the 40x to the 50x and read reviews on utube and made my decision also with the help of my advisor Carson. [ Nancy  Jul 04, 2018 ]
Recommended by audiophiliac friend [ Tom  Feb 03, 2018 ]
Great price for an affordable pair of closed back cans. [ New User  Jul 31, 2017 ]
Did a ton of research online. [ Anthony  Jul 11, 2017 ]
internet research. [ Warren  Dec 16, 2016 ]
Great brand and price. The specs are outstanding! [ John  Dec 11, 2016 ]
Due to technical specifications suitable for Pro Audio applications. [ Carlos  Dec 06, 2016 ]
Have a few pairs of the 50s in the studio. Figured this would be a good general, rugged set for general listening at my desk, and less expensive than using the 50s in the studio for tracking, where they could get beat up. Better to lose a 100$ pair of cans to a crazed drummer or singer, as opposed to a $170 pair........ [ FRANK  Nov 14, 2016 ]
A-T has been in the business a lot of years, I bought phonograph needles from this company in the 1970's. I trust them to manufacture high quality products, I'm expecting a high quality product. B Caruso [ Baladsino  Oct 29, 2016 ]
