Wonderful Headphones! This review is for:Audio Technica ATHM40FS Precision StudioPhonesFirst of all right out of the package they look expensive. They do not look cheaply made and the matte black coloring and shape of these headphones is pleasing to the eye.From the top down:The headband is approximately two inches wide and covered even on the top with some type of soft to the touch material. The underside of the headband is very well padded and the padding extends almost down to the hinge where the earpieces are connected to the headpiece. The padding is nice and squishy, but not so much that you can feel the hardness underneath. The thickness of the padding is approximately 3/4 of an inch thick.These earphones are very light, I’ve been wearing them all day with no neck fatigue, or headache from too much pressure around the ears.The tension of the headband is enough to hold the earphones on my head, but they rest comfortably without…

Nothing short of WOW! First things first. These are not for kids who wanna listen to all their hardcore screamo death metal at earsplitting volumes. These are not for people who have a 1000 watt sub in their car. These are not for people who take music casually.These are for recording.I don’t claim to be an expert on what good headphones sound like. I’ve never had the money to try some 500 dollar audiophile phones. I am a very active musician; I run a studio in my bedroom and my bands practice room. I’ve been recording in my bedroom for about four years. I use Adobe Audition 2 as my main recording software.The Audio-Technica ATH M40fs headphones are THE BEST headphones I have ever heard. I’m sure they’re not the best in the world. They’re just the best I’ve used, and I’m pretty sure they’re the best for the price.With these headphones I can hear subtleties and nuances that I never believed possible. I can hear breath noise on the flute intro to Yanni’s…

Not the best for everyone In my continued quest for the best reasonably-priced closed headphones, I acted on the other Amazon reviews (and those from another site) and bought these. They might be the best headphones for certain applications (e.g. studio work where a very flat response is extremely important), but for my purposes they are inferior to two other choices: , which I prefer for listening at home, and , which I prefer for commuting. The Sony phones sound better to me, they are lighter and smaller, and cord management is better. The sound of Sennheisers is somewhat inferior to the Audio Technicas, but again they are smaller and lighter, cord management is much better, and they are much cheaper so I’m not as concerned about losing/breaking them while commuting. Finally,…
