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.
Over the last five or so years I've experimented with a lot of headphones for both studio and home use, from AKG and Sennheiser to some questionable Skullcandy ones for my mobile. Yet previous to purchasing these I hadn't used Audio Technica headphones. so I was very pleasantly surprised when these arrived.
Firstly, I wear glasses so it is very difficult for me to find comfortable over ear headphones. previous pairs have crushed my glasses into my head and such so comfort is more or less paramount for me. Although after 2 hours or so I have to take them off for 5 mins due to the classic "Hot ear" problem, I have not yet suffered from issues regarding my glasses, despite after mixing for quite a while today.
Plus, the sound quality is amazing, with great low end and crystal clear mid and high end as well I copuld not recommend these enough for any use be it home, studio, or as I sometimes do, gaming. Even if boost the Low end EQ to max it doesn't suffer from the "farty bass" some pairs do.
Sound-wise, these are not very accurate cans; I would use them neither for casual home listening nor for critical monitoring. They are very bassy, but at the same time it's quite a deep bass, not too bloaty in the upper-bass region, happily. The top-end lacks air, but it's not a bad sound for the price, and they don't sound harsh or fatiguing, which is always a good thing. On balance I would guess they will be well suited to outdoor listening, where a healthy amount of bottom end can help drown out traffic noises, and an airy top-end would be wasted most of the time.
One thing to beware of: the cushioned pads are coated in some kind of thin, glossy material that seems to bio-degrade over time, and flake off. Nowadays anyone who wears my old pair ends up with black flakes of this stuff all over the sides of their faces and down their shirts! It should take several years to reach that state, though. The other side of the coin is that they still function as well as the day I bought them. They also have a reasonably nice design.
