About the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x

David Brown

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

3 questions already asked

Q
How durable is the "comfort" head band? I've had a pair of SONY on the ear headphones and the cushion head band an cushioned ear cups actually began to "decompose" after a time

If these are the wireless TV headphones, not particularly comfortable as I recall. I do highly recommend the Sennheiser wireless TV audio unit with earbuds. THAT is a setup: the little 3" remote sits with you after charging and Apple buds are accepted, too. Very clear, wireless audio sans headphones.

Not only is the comfort band durable and still functional, these headphones are tough and the cord lasts too.
james  Feb 17, 2021

Since I don't wear these every day I can't answer the durability question, but I will suggest getting breathable ear pads because the OEM pads do get quite warm. Sound wise, these are very good, actually great for the price. However, I've been told that the M40x sound is a fair bit better.

They sure can be! Excellent sound quality, and closed earpieces block out extraneous sound.

Yes, very well.

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.
