Audio Technica ATH-M2X Headphones

I like to practice with accompany music. In the past, I have used typical closed back headphones. Then I discovered this type of headphone. Gang, if you play to accompany music or want to hear other singers, plus your music, this is a must. For the instrument player, wanting to hear their instrument, plus the accompaniment track at the same time, these are the bomb. A real bonus is the 12' of cord that is flat, not coiled. This allows you to move about freely, without the worry of a coiled cord popping them off your head. I wish, I could have found out about these years ago.

Can't imagine needing more than these

I purchased two pairs of Headphones, mostly for practicing guitar without disturbing the household. These were very inexpensive so I figured even if they weren't much, they didn't cost much. Wow, was I ever surprised. These are very clear, compact, comfortable with a nice rich tone. They sound as nice as playing with the speakers on with no static or break-up when cranking up the volume. These are perfect for my needs. I had planned on keeping these in the bedroom and later getting a nice, expensive pair. Not going to happen now, these are my nice pair. If anything, I will get another set of these. I like that they are so compact, comfortable on the head, rich sounding and the cable is nice and long. The other set I bought had a very short cable, I prefer this set. They are sitting on my speaker now, just waiting to be used.

Best $30 headphones

I was looking for something light and cheap to work with when doing beat making and melodies for game apps I develop. I usually do this work after the kids go to bed or on the go. I was using high end Sony ear buds but not getting enough bass response. I also own AKG 240 and Senn 280 HD headphones but prefer to use those when mixing and tracking. The cord is really long but is much better then too short. These will give you excellent bass response at low volumes with a small amount of mid and high frequency loss. If you are looking for headphones with great bass that are super comfy and CHEAP, look no further.
