Audio-Technica Studio Headphones
If you fall into the more casual category, you might be looking for something that gives you really exceptional bang for your buck. If that's the case, check out some of AT's mid-priced models like the ATH-D40fs Enhanced-Bass Precision Studiophones or the Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones. These will fit even the tightest budgets, and they have the performance you need to really push your sounds to the next level.
Searching for a higher-end option designed for the professional studio environment? If so, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x or ATH-M40x Closed-Back Professional Studio Monitor Headphones are your top contenders here. They've got loads of nice features, like removable cords and specialty, extra-durable earpads and headbands that'll last for years. But what really make these headphones amazing are their drivers, 40mm on the ATH-M40x and 45mm on the ATH-M50x, with rare earth magnets and copper-clad aluminum wire voice coils. They're tuned flat to provide completely neutral sound reproduction - a must for professional-quality monitors.
You'll find some headphones in this section that are great for outside the studio as well, like the ATH-M2X and ATH-P1 models. From the recording booth to the street, there are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the impressive performance of Audio-Technica studio headphones. The only question left to ask is how you'll make the most of those opportunities yourself.
