Great product

Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

I use them in the recording studio for situations where you don't need trac bleed through headphone playback such as vocals etc. This model seems to be the choice of most pros for the price point. I see lots of them in all kinds of recording venues. They come with a long length cord and adapter so you have plenty of cord to move around freely. Audio Technica builds great stuff

Best headphones for listening to acoustic instruments

By James

Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

If you enjoy acoustic music buy these headphones. The acoustic instruments seem so close with these. There is just a sweetness to the upper midrange.

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

    These headphones are really comfortable, the cable is really long, and the cable connection screws to a 1/4 inch adapter (supplied). Which makes it comfortable to record drums and guitar. Perfect for mixing. Most important, a really good sound.

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

    I bought this to have another cheap pair of tracking headphones. I like the bass, tight, punchy, but a bit over-EQ'd. The highs are what really kill it; they're harsh and distorted sounding. I have professional amps and interfaces, so I know it's not just the headphones. I plugged them in and turned them up and just let them run 24/7 (without wearing them) for a few days, and they broke in fairly nicely. They're lightweight and seal pretty well though, so they'll get their use. They're definitely worth using as a back-up tracking pair, but I won't be deviating from AKG's headphones anymore.

    In short, they sounded bad out of the box, alright with some burn in (hopefully I'll see more improvement; highs tend to improve with brand new drivers), but they seal well and are loud enough to be useful for tracking in the studio. I got a good black friday deal, so I don't regret it, but I won't be rushing to buy another. The other cans I have on hand for tracking are AKG K171 mkII, which are far superior (also considerably more expensive).

          These are excellent headphones. If you are looking for a pair that will bring your digital music to life, buy these. If you are a practical audiophile (i.e., not insane and just want to enjoy music) splurge for the m50x. The flat tuning, the meatier drivers, and the slightly larger dynamic range will make just about everything sound live and right in front of you.

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

            I recently got involved with praise and worship at my church, and since I am stuck in a drum cage I needed something with some isolation. The only thing I wish is for a little more noise isolation, but I wasn't expecting these to give me 100% anyways. For the price, they definitely meet expectations. They look and sound great, and they're compact for easily carrying around in the pouch that comes with them. I would definitely recommend these to others.
