Best Uses

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M3X Headphones:

    After relatively limited use, the thin black plastic film over the cushions began to crack and then peel off in tiny pieces. I eventually peeled off as much as I could to prevent further mess. As the thin coating apparently wasn't designed to hold up under much use, I don't why Audio-Technica even bothered with it. I also find the headphones to become uncomfortable relatively quickly. I would recommend going with a pair that encompass the ears rather than press against them.

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M3X Headphones:

    I ordered these the other day. I only spent around 25 on them knowing that they usually cost around 50 bucks. After having read so many negative reviews, I was suprised to hear the delightful sound coming from these phones. Alright, I know earbuds shouldn't be compared to over ear phones but I spent 80 bucks on my klipsch headphones and 25 on these and these are amazing. The klipsch headphones when they aren't compared to phones that are more expensive than them produce a great sound with good bass solid mids and bright highs. I put these on after listening with my klipsch and these sounded better. I put the klipsch back in and they sounded tinny and lacked bass (probably because of the over ear power) and mids. The mids on these are fantastic. The bass is not the greatest ever but for the price it is solid and the highs are vibrant. Overall these are great. they are kind of small though and have a tendency to fall off (that's why i gave them a 4 for quality.) But in my eyes this turned out to be good for casual listening and for gaming. You have to pull down on them so they hold on to your head better (note this is not uncomfortable it actually makes a feeling of secure fit) and then they are light as a feather!

    Not Satisfied

    By Mystic Mentor

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M3X Headphones:

    These headphones were really disappointing. The sound representation is not accurate. Music does not sound bright, colorful, or vibrant. The low end is weak. I really just got these as a gift for my musical partner to listen to music out of, especially beats since we rap. Its not a worthy gift even for that purpose. Spend a little more and get something better. Or, spend a lot less and get something equal to these. I recommend the RH-5Ma from Yamaha. Much better.

    Great home studio mix reproducer

    Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M3X Headphones:

    Let's face it, if you are creating your own music in a home based setting then there are many elements that cause undesired results. There are reasons why professional studios cost millions of dollars to engineer. I bought these headphones to pull double duty-I needed to both record with and mix with a single pair of headphones early in my producing journey. Now 47 recorded songs later and literally hundreds of hours working recordings in the mix I am happy to say these babies work well. I hear the nuances that appear in the subtleties of the mix allowing a better final master. The final sound of the mixes translate well across many types of playback speakers, monitors, car stereos, mp3 formating, and across varied acoustical enviroments. These are excellent entry headphones and there are 2 limitaions I have encountered. The first; these will work for recordings but expect to record music from the headphones themselves on the track, this is lost in the mix and is able to be noise gated but it's an issue if that is truly inportant for your needs. Second, they provide no real isolation so should only be used in a quiet acoustical environment. Third; care should be taken to prevent ear fatique, as is always the case anyway. But I am very happy with these little headphones and have become quite attached to them and rely on them as accurate enough for passionate home based studios and post production work.
