Studio Headphones are Not JUST for Industry Professionals,
They Are For YOU Too! Studio Monitor headphones, and most headphones marketed as DJ headphones offer a balanced sound. What’s that mean? In reference to “EQ” or the Equalization, there are 3 major areas from which the sound music is comprised and discussed. These areas are the Highs, Mids and Lows. Lows are commonly referred to as “bass”. Highs are things like vocals, strings and other higher pitched instruments. Balanced sound is when all 3 of these areas are accurately and fairly represented in the sound of the music being heard through the headphones.
Why is this advantageous?
When you listen to headphones that are balanced you will literally hear things you NEVER heard before in songs you may have been listening to your whole life. Nuances that before where buried in fluffed up sound are now present and audible. All headphones have their own sound and characteristics. That’s what makes them so fun to play with! When it comes to headphones you WANT balanced, but balanced headphones are not JUST for industry professionals, they are for you too! We have found that while you can not deny the popularity of super bassy headphones, almost all that say they “love” headphones eventually graduate to preferring a balanced sound over one that is all fluff.

Q & A
Are They Expensive?
Do They Fold?
While many of the previous M-series headphones did NOT fold, the new X line all fold with the exception of the M20x which is fair considering it’s crazy low price.
Where Should I Buy Them?
Welp, we do love making websites, but we also kinda hoped you’d get them from us at Orbheadphones.com! If not, at least drop back by and let us know what you thought of them!
Do They Have a Detachable Cable?
The ATH-M50x, & ATH-M40x both have detachable cables and come bundled with extras, where as the ATH-M30x and ATH-M20x do NOT. That being said, the detachable cable will DOUBLE the lifetime of your headphones in many cases as broken cables is THE most common problem we see with headphones. If you can replace the cable, you just bought some more time!
Why X Series?
While all of the headphones Audio-Technica have produced over the years offer something to remember, the new X line of the M-series is truly a headphone for the 21st century. With a SLICK and modern design, the new M-series headphones fit right in with today’s lifestyle. With a slightly improved bass response the new X headphones offer more of the sound people have been looking for, without ruining the nice balanced sound Audio-Technica is so legendary for.
