Sound quality is amazing. I would have definitely paid three times more than what I paid for. These are the most comfortable headphones I own. They look stylish and they are built to last for many years. The only downside with the ATH-M40x headphone is that it only comes with 2 extremely large audio cables. This is a great thing for DJs or other people who need a longer and durable cable, but if you are planning to walk around your campus or gym, I recommend buying the 1.2 m cable that Audio Technica sells.
The Fiio adapter works exactly as advertised. At first I was skeptical about the authenticity of the Fiio E6 amp but it comes with a 25-digit code that can be put into their company website that checks the authenticity of the amp.
I have not used it opened the mic that come with the bundle but it looks well made and stylish as well.
Overall, the headphone is amazing. His deal is definitely worth the buy. This is something I will definitely buy for...
I bought these along with a pair of Sennheiser HD 380's which turned out to be defective. I don't profess to be an audiophile but I think I tend to be rather picky about the sound I subject my ears to.
For starters these headphones are amazing for this price point, not that I have any experience with something at a significantly higher price point. The sound coming from these is crystal clear, I am hearing things in tracks that I have listened to hundreds of times in the past that I've never heard before. This is good and bad in a way since some of the things that you hear you might be better off not hearing but I'd rather hear everything that was in the recording for better or worse. This is especially apparent in the higher frequencies, no hiss or other artifacts unless they were there originally. This is a totally new experience for me, to repeat myself, I have never listened through anything that reproduces sound this clearly. Surprisingly though, this is not at the...
These are probably the best sounding headphones I have ever tried. They a tuned flat so the sound reproduction is essentially an exact representation of the audio source. There are other headphones that are tuned more to give more bass or other sounds. I think the one thing I would have preferred about these is for the opening inside the pads to be a touch larger so that they were not touching my ears at all. Maybe the ATH-M50x headphones with an extra 5mm size on the drivers would be a little larger, but I think they use the same pads. If you want headphones that don't modify the sound from the source these may be the ones for you.
