The ATH-M40fs are a pair of closed circuit studio headphones. They are very affordable only costing 69 bucks. They are very comfortable around your ear and you can wear them for hours without them getting uncomfortable or irritating you. The cushions around your ear are soft and keep some of the outside unwanted noise away from your ears. The ear pieces do rotate so you can listen easy DJ style or “one ear monitoring”. The driver size on the ATH-M40fs is 40mm and the frequency response is 5Hz to 28 kHz with an impedance of 60 ohms.
These headphones sound decent; I would not use them for any serious mixing of your music, Mainly for just listening or playback purposes. We had a bunch of these headphones and use to use them for playback listening especially when we were on the road. The best part to us about this headphones is that they cost was so low. We could buy many of these and not stress out if one of them got broken or crushed at a show or in the van because they didn’t cost that much and we could replace them quickly. Before we had these we were using a pair of Shure headphones that cost 180 dollars and when they started breaking it was really hurting our pockets.
The sound that you will get while using the ATH-M40fs is pretty clean. The bass can be a little heavy sometimes depending on what style of music you are listening to in them. The mids sit nice in the ATH-M40fs headphones and the highs are pretty clean and crisp. I do recommend getting these headphones if you are a gigging band and you travel a lot and need some headphones that don’t cost a lot to use for general listening to music with and listening to playback with.
