I bought the Audio-Technica ATH-M30X to use mainly with my music keyboards. They are classified as studio headphones and the overall frequency response is well balanced with no extra emphasis given to bass frequencies - as in the case of DJ & gaming headphones. I also use them to listen to audio on my PC, Laptop and Hi-Fi and adjust the mixer frequency response on these devices to suit whatever is being played and these headphones respond admirably.
Previously I was used to "in the ear" and very lightweight models and found the Audio-Technica ATH-M30X to be close fitting, enclosing the ears completely, which took me a little while to get used to. They may not block out external noises entirely but deadens them well enough for them not to be a problem to me while playing keyboards. I've had no complaints from other people about hearing my music from them, which I play at a moderate level that I find comfortable.
Before I bought these I looked at a wide range of manufacturers and models and read personal and technical reviews on the internet. A very important point to bear in mind when buying headphones (in order to obtain optimum performance) is to buy a pair with similar impedance (measured in ohms) as close as possible to the impedance of the device they are being used with, which can be found in the makers specification documentation.
Overall, I am very pleased with my Audio-Technica ATH-M30X headphones as they are ideal for the purpose for which I bought them. They are also well made and the cabling is not at all flimsy - as I have read about in reviews of other (and in some cases more expensive) models. They also come with a 6.35 mm jack plug fitted that can be unscrewed to reveal a 3.5 mm miniature inside - making them universal in use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money! 18 July 2014

As a PC gamer I've always been a 'Headset with a mic' person. Until my Creative Fatality's started to conk out on me. And that's the first time I'd ever heard of Audio Technica. A friend of mine recommended the brand but i was still sceptical of brands i never heard of. But if you look through all the video reviews and written reviews for these headphones they're not wrong.

I use them for gaming on my PC so the following is what I'm basing it on (with a clip-on mic):

These headphones are well worth the money. I'm hearing sounds in game music tracks i've previously couldn't distinguish before and overall sounds are more defined. If you use these for PC gaming then make sure you turn your volume down from 11. I have no idea about the technical terms "mid range" etc... but every sound is crisp and clear. I've listened to music and watch videos with them and they sound very nice.

Comfort-wise, these are VERY comfy. They are OVER-THE-EAR headphones and fit very snugly. They clamp just enough to stay in position but not too much to put pressure on the side of your head or ears. I've worn them ALL DAY and they haven't caused me any discomfort. In fact it's always a nice feeling when you put them back on after taking a break.
The outer shell is plastic, but it is very well made. I've only had them a few days but they feel sturdy.

The cable is a nice length - not to long and not to short. Thicker than your standard headphone cable and even brand new out of the box it's still flexible. It also comes with a screw-on jack for amps and other audio equipment. However like cable is not detachable like some other models.

When you compare the specs of these the the M50(x)'s there is a small difference other than the price. All in all i've never been more impressed with headphones than i have been with these. Well worth the money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful headphones, great value 27 May 2014

These are fantastic headphones, especially for the price. I wanted something I could travel with and these fold up to be very compact, but you don't lose out on phone size or sound.

Really comfy over the ear phones too, none of that painful pressure you get with smaller models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punches above its price range! 17 Aug 2014

TLDR; Amazing noise cancellation, great range, best bang for buck.

Previously owned a pair of Sennheiser RS 170's, and I can say that these are much better, for a third of the price!

When listening to music, it's like I can hear everything at the same time for the first time! It's like a totally new experience when listening to music.

Even though the headphone ear cups are leather, I can wear these for long periods of time without discomfort; sometimes you even forget you're wearing them!

Design is very pleasing and minimalistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Price point supremacy 28 Jun 2014

I had read many positive reviews of AT's M50 and M30 series. I won't go into details of describing the M30:
Sound quality, design and comfort are all top notch for the price (which at the time I bought these was 55) Especially the design is a delightful surprise. the cord is thicker than usual, almost rope like in comparison to usual headphone cords. The head band is soft and there is good amount of room for adjusting The Ear muffs are mounted on cylinder-like part which allows the muffs to move around 10-15 degrees around their own Y-axis allowing for nice adjusting to head shape.

The sound quality is, despite all the other points, strongest part of the ATH-M series. There is no headphone in the 40mm size that would leave M30 outside the spotlight. The clarity is best I've ever heard with headphones of this price and the bass is there. I'm not joking you can literally feel the vibrations with less than half the maximum volume.

Technically M30 comes quite close to M50, the design is slightly different but the numbers are quite close. M30 rocks an 40mm element while M50 is driven with 45mm one this translates to around 6k kHz and better Decibels to watts ratio to M50 favor while M30 has slightly higher decibels but requires more energy to reach its best performance.

However, considering the price of M50 is almost double of M30 at best M30 is definitely choice for home user who is looking for the studio quality.
