Audio Technica ATHM40FS Headphones
The first thing that hits you when you see them is how pricey they look.

Their steady construction gives an impression of extreme sophistication in their make.

However, for an affordable $55 you get the Audio Technica ATHM40FS Headphones complete with CCAW voice coils, OFC litz wire cables, rotating one-ear pieces, 40mm diameter drivers and 1600 mw of power handling.

The circular single earpieces can rotate up to 180 degrees and are excellent for one-ear monitoring.

They easily fit and have a soft bud that remains steady in the ear.

The CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminum Wire) voice coil ensures clarity and gives excellent, high quality sound.

The Audio Technica ATHM40FS Headphones have great noise reduction capabilities, thanks to the OFC litz wire cable and their circular design. With 40 mm diameter drivers enhanced with neodymium magnets, they have a deep and accurate bass that is not overbearing.

Another great thing about these headphones is that you can easily replace the cables. Many other brands require a special order to get the exact cables you want. With A-T headphones, you will encounter no such problem.

The same case applies to the ear pads — all easily replaceable.

Audio Technica has a reputation for high quality and professionalism, and the ATHM40FS Headphones are true to form.

They are designed for high performance, a factor that influences the choice of material and design used to make them. Insulation and coating on the headphones and wire prevents lose of signal while recording.

It also brings out the different notes in a tune so that you are able to identify each note distinctly. This is essential when mixing as it helps you create balance in sound.

They are quite comfortable on the ear and have ability to produce sound at frequencies exceeding human hearing range at over 28 kHz as well as frequencies way below human hearing ability — less than 5 kHz.

They are a real bargain. The other feature that makes them particularly unique is the close-back profile, which helps to lock out external noise and other distractions.

It enables full concentration on the work at hand.

Best price on the ATHM40FS


Audio Technica ATHM40SF Headphones are not exactly small. The huge headphones can get heavy and uncomfortable when worn for long.

In addition, to use them in the house or on your player would require an adapter as they are designed for studio use only.

They have a 6.3mm wide plug while regular players use average 3.5 mm plugs.

They are not ideal for traveling given the size of the headphones and the cables involved. They are also lacking in aesthetic beauty unlike the many stylish and trendy headphones on sale today.


Audio Technica ATHM40FS Headphones are ideal for anyone looking for durability, service and some degree of comfort at an affordable rate.
