      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

      I bought these for my own use for computer-based digital audio/video monitoring and playback, and general computer use. At work we use Sennheiser 280s, which sound better, block outside noise much better, and are sturdier, BUT they weigh more and cost twice as much. This headphone balances decent sound and comfort with a more affordable price (especially when it's my money). The straight cord on these headphones is nice, too; I find that coiled cords tend to get in my way.

      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

      I bought this headphone because I wanted a (not expensive) closed back phone to connect on my mobile when I'll be doing some exercises and also for monitoring rehearsals - usually I use a Westone UM Pro 20 In-Ear Monitors, but sometimes I need to put and take them off several times during rehearsal, and in-ears can hurt your ears.

      It's a good headphone for its price. With this in mind, I'll point some good and bad points. I missed a little bit of low and (mainly) high frequencies, but the medium frequencies are flat and the "phone's sound" sounds reasonably open, which is a good thing. Even being a big monitor for daily use, regular smartphones are able to feed it. The cushions got a little bit hot if you use the phone for a long period. I got a little bit disappointed about its isolation, it could be better.

      If Audio-Technica could improve the cushion and isolation, and include a detachable cable with a long and a short length cable option for the same price, the ATH-M20x would be a best seller without a doubt.

        I am writing this to say that I liked them. I have only had the head phones for a week now, they sound good and fit well. It was worth the money.

              For the money nothing can touch these. Very comfortable with excellent frequency response. Closed back design makes them great for tracking / recording vocals and instruments. Handles ample power without distorting. Long, straight cord is very convenient. I've been using headphones in professional settings for years and you can't beat these guys for the price. If you're still undecided, well, don't be.

                  These things are great for the value. I actually like the long cord because i dont have to connect an extension cable. The only con is that they do get a little uncomfortable around the ear after wearing them for a while.
