Still going strong
by Cindy L. from Lebanon, INI bought my ATH-D40fs headphones over 4 years ago and use them daily for my medical transcription work. They are still going strong! They are very comfortable, and the sound is excellent. They aren't ... read more [+]exactly noise-cancelling, but they do drown out quite a bit of exterior noise. I bought them back then for $80, so at $60 now they're a steal. close [-]

Honestly it doesn't get much better in headphones.

I've dropped these, sat on them, lol... I've pulled them up by the chord and many times dont see the chord in my old cramp recording space and step on the chord. OH NO! jack gets pulled out, headphones come off but everythings ok. I'm saving my money. Until you get in to the master's pairs around 400, these are the best for anywhere close to the price! no doubt close [-]
by WCFM from Williamstown, MAI'll try to keep this short. We used these headphones along with the monitor (M40fs) version, and Sony 7506's for production/broadcasting.

Pros: Sound/price ratio (unbeatable), comfort (really ... read more [+]snug, so it won't go anywhere even when headbanging, soft insides), sound sealing (you can't hear anything softer than normal conversation if you tried), durable wire and plug, one eared listening a piece of cake.
Cons: Parts for the headphones don't seem to be easily available, can get warm inside, 1/4" input means an adapter is necessary for most MP3 players, no apparatus to wind up the REALLY long cord, no folding for those who care about that.
Comparing to the M40fs, the sound is sweeter with great trebles and bass, and it feels like a cushion inside, while the M40 is really flat and has a ring inside instead of the large cushion so it feels more open. Based on the prices, it's easy to pick this over the M40, unless you plan on doing audio engineering.
Comparing to the 7506, there is less treble and more bass, and they feel a bit more bulky, with rounded plastic versus metallic feeling flat sides. The one-ear listening is done differently, with the 7506 flipping and the A-T's twisting, and the cord for the 7506 is coiled (though more delicate). The value comparison is incomparable. close [-]
exactly what I wanted
by Max P from Philadelphia, PAThese are the first professional-quality phones I've purchased for my own use, but I've used others in the past.

The is especially true for the natural piano sounds I've mainly been using them for so far. I get a more legitimate "grand piano" sound which has more weight and color in the bass. I'm confident that they will work very well for more electronic mastering when I get to that stage as well. close [-]
