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.

After about a year of suffering with uncomfortable Sennheiser headphones I decided to make the Switch to Audio Technica. I can put my hand on my heart here and say this is the best pair of headphones I've ever used.

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.

Overall 10/10.

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!

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.

Great Device.

I'm no expert but these are very sturdy headphones with great sound. They are very comfortable although sometimes after 4-6 hours of constant use they rub against the top of your ear and cause some mild discomfort. Very good for listening to music and very clear when listening to media. Very Impressed with the wire that feel very user proof and is thicker than any standard wire I've ever seen. Downsides, The wires that connect the Speakers are visable at the point where you change the headsize, theese are very thin and if you got them caught on something I could imagine them breaking; hasn't happened to me but is something I would expect to happen.
