About the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x

David Brown

Great sound even a musician can afford

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. The Audio-Technica ATH-M40x headphones offer accurate sound without forcing you to make tough financial decisions. These durable headphones are tuned for a flat response, so you get sound that's well-balanced across a wide frequency range with plenty of detail. They're great for tracking and mixing in the studio, spinning tunes at a club, or simply relaxing with music at home or on the road. They come with detachable straight and coiled cables, as well as a 1/4" adapter for plugging into pro gear or home stereos.

Solid construction for everyday use

Working musicians and DJs need headphones that are tough. The 'M40x headphones are well built with premium materials that keep these headphones from self-destructing after just a few recording sessions. 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.

Both cables have twist-lock 2.5mm sub-mini terminals at the headphone, and a 3.5mm mini plug that can be used with most portable devices. 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.

Q
I really like these headphones but I can hear them creaking when I move my head. Is there anything I can do to stop that?
david  Sep 01, 2022

A
That sounds like it could be irritating for sure, David. There is sadly not much that can be done here, that creaking may be the swivel mount to allow the earcups to rotate for single ear/DJ cueing and use. That flexibility does allow some movement when in standard listening position, and may be the culprit here on the creaking noise. You could potentially consider using something like these Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7b Over the hear headphones. These also swivel but as more of a critical listening headphone they could provide a "tighter" listening experience as far as the movement, with less potential creaking. I hope I have been helpful David! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_901MSR7BBK/Audio-Technica-ATH-MSR7b.html
