The Perfect Balance of Quality, Comfort, and Affordability!Audio-Technica ATH-M40fs headphones provide the kind of excellent sound and reliable performance you expect from A-T products, at a low price that's hard to imagine! If you're looking for the perfect balance of quality, comfort, and price, ATH-M40fs headphones are the way to go. Their extended flat frequency response makes them ideal for accurate mixing and monitoring. High SPL-handling means you can use them to monitor while recording drums or mixing live sound without worrying about distortion. And whether you're monitoring, editing, or critically listening, when it comes to those extended recording sessions, their lightweight design and comfortable padding is a real plus!
ATH-M40fs premium headphones give you the kind of pro features you can expect from Audio-Technica, including ultra-comfortable circumaural ear pieces that can rotate 180 degrees for one-ear monitoring. The "fs" in ATH-M40fs stands for "field serviceable," because you can easily replace their sturdy 11" strain-relief cable, drivers, or plush ear cup padding if you somehow damage them. And talk about sturdy — these headphones are built to be completely reality-proof. You can bombard them with ultra-high SPLs, and they'll keep on providing you with incredible sound clarity — an especially critical feature if you plan to use them in loud recording rooms or even louder live environments.

I am very happy with them
by Leonard Rosen from Lawrenceville, GAI am an instrumentalist and a music teacher. I want to hear a pure instrument sound that is not distorted.

My only concern is the reports that the ear & head pads deteriorate rapidly. I did some research and that is a common complaint with other earphone manufacturers as well. I read that sweat is the main enemy of pleather. I also read that if you wipe the earphones down with a soft cloth sprayed with Windex it will add to the life of the pads. close [-]

When people ask me why I use ATHM40's, the answer is simple - and selfish. They sound as good as any other pair of similarly-priced headphones, but they are at least twice as comfortable to wear. That can become a very big deal when you are wearing them for any extended period of time.
