Let’s See How The ATM-M30X
Stack Up Against The ATH-M30!

While there’s a lot that make these headphones similar…
It’s what sets them apart that’s truly key!

The Audio Technica ATH-M30x are excellent sounding headphones in the sub $100 range. I’m using the M30x as a second pair of headphones to listen to music and when watching movies or TV shows on an iPhone, iPad, or through an AV receiver. I wanted headphones that would sound great, be well built, be portable, and yet be affordably priced. In those regards, the M30x delivers.

The M30x is a nicely designed successor to the popular M30 headphones which they are replacing. I really like Audio Technica’s styling update for the M30x, giving it a look similar to the iconic M50 and newer M50x headphones. Like the M50 and M50x, the M30x now features a collapsible design for space saving portability. Both of those are welcome changes from the dated looking and clunkier M30. A few months back I purchased a pair of M30 headphones, used them for a couple of weeks before returning them, and then purchased the M50 headphones. The design and feel of the M30x is much improved from the M30.

Probably the best headphones I’ve owned. I was looking for some good headphones that wouldn’t be too expensive and had seen that people generally like this company, so I decided to pre-order these. Though people who have owned better headphones will possibly say these suck, I think they are a great purchase. The build quality is impressive. Nothing about it feels cheap to me and they are very light and comfortable. The sound quality is better than any headphones I’ve ever owned. The only thing that I might want more is noise cancelling, which these don’t have, but they are a snug fit so there is some reduction in noise just not for all the city sounds.
