Amazing for the price
Theodore85, 13.12.2019
Pros: Amazing clarity, punch and performance.
They are able to produce a loud clear sound and the closed cup helps a lot. The ear pads stood well and remained comfortable even after a 4-6 hour daily use.
They give a slight discomfort after prolonged use, but i have not found any headphones that don't (plus, it feels like a subjective matter).

Cons: Lately the coils have started rattling a lot even at low-mid volume. Then again i can't fault a 55 euro purchase after lasting 2 full years.
Also, the cable is very long and heavy, making it hard to use on the road if you don't have somewhere to hide it.

They do need replacing as they are, but would i choose Audio Technica headphones again? Oh yes!
The next ones are going to be the M50 as i do feel they are at least equally great but with a detachable cable and a better power handling.

Bedroom Guitar Practicing Headphones
Canziani, 05.10.2019
I have bout these for silent guitar practicing. I also wanted to have extra headphones for decent and simple music (or podcast) listening. They are pretty good for the price range I must say. It does both things I bought it for pretty well. They are pretty comfortable, easy to use. Pros: 1) value for money; 2) quite comfortable even after hours of having the on; 3) the sound is really good; 4) a small pro - comes with nice and comfy bag; 5) the jack adapter is very nice and holds tight. Cons: 1) a slight buzz when playing low E string; 2) after longer use,it gets too warm for your ears. To summarize, great value for money.

These work great for silent guitar plying
blank..., 10.02.2019
I use these headphones for silent guitar playing / practicing, not studio recording / mixing, so my review may be "amateurish" but for my use and needs they are great.

They're very comfortable and I don't feel any discomfort even after long use. More importantly they're "easy on the ears", compared to cheaper headphones I had, which after one hour of use felt like they're pushing your eardrums into your head.

I have them for several months, for the price build quality is OK, I would prefer if they weren't foldable at all because that part of them seems most flimsy, but so far I had no issues with them in any regard.

If stolen would I buy again? Yes!

Very niceheadphones on a budget
Natko, 20.09.2014
After a long search for good headphones in a price range that I could actually afford, I decided to buy Audio-Technica ATH-M30X, and I did not regret. Package included headphones and a nice leather-y carrying bag and 3,5 - 6,3mm adapter.
I dont want to pretend I know much about headphones in general - I just play guitar and needed ones for home recording/production/listening AMATEUR purposes. For that I can only praise ATH M30x - they are comfortable, I managed to wear them for hours even in very hot summer time conditions, sound is great, you can hear details in songs you cannot hear listening on normal speakers.
Other specifics to mention:
- if you get wear/tear on earpads, there are even substitute Audio-Technica ATH-M30 EarPads for 5,40 Eur on Thomann to order
- connecting cable is also very solid, I can't imagine I would manage to ruin it in normal everyday use
- earphones can be folded for easier carrying in included bag which is nice and convinient.
Anyway, I like them, and I don't think there is anything better in this price range.
