• Sound Quality
Audio-Technica has one thing in mind when they manufactured M40X: monitoring. Music monitoring has never been easier and more accurate with its flat response across the entire range of frequency.
• ATH M50x vs. ATH M40x
M50X comes in various colours like white and blue while M40X is only offered in black. Both models have interchangeable cables, and copper-clad wire voice coils. The M50x has a larger driver at 5mm, and M40X has a lower frequency response at only 4,000 HZ though you will not be able to distinguish the difference. However, there is a reason for these variances. ATH-M40X contains every feature that makes M50X great, and offers it at a more reasonable price. Hence, M40X is a better value for your money.
• ATH M30x vs. ATH M40x
M30x does not have interchangeable cables, and swivelling ear cups unlike M40X. Moreover, M30x is tuned only for mid-range and not flat like M40X. Hence, it cannot provide superb sound monitoring the way an M40X can.
• ATH M20x vs. ATH M40x
Similar to an M30X, the M20X does not have interchangeable cables. Aside from this, it is not as portable as M40X because it is not foldable and does not come with a travel bag. Hence, if you need a take it anytime, anywhere headphones, M40X is the way to go.
Clear, distinct sound
The sound that M40X lets you hear is very clear and distinct. The headphones can emphasize all frequencies, highs, mediums, and lows, clearly and cleanly. The frequencies are emitted evenly from start of your music till the last beat. This makes it very ideal for sound monitoring and self-isolation.
When you use headphones for a very long period of time, your head tends to feel uneasy and squished. You will not experience that with M40X.

M40X changes the game with its swivelling ear cups and great sound technology. Whole day music monitoring is now effortless and easy.
Despite its sophisticated performance, M40X remains economical compared to other headphones that provide the same sound quality. It costs less than a $100 while its competitors are priced at least $300!
