I do like these headphones a lot; they have a good sound & as yet, I have yet to hear any distortion across the range. The noise cancelling feature increases the volume very noticeably & I'm not sure if the function actually does anything, but my family haven't noticed any noise leakage with either the noise cancelling function . They are also noticeably heavier than any other headphones I've had which I think is mainly down to the speakers (not really an issue) & one other feature I quite like is the connecting lead between the headphones & pc / ipod / walkman / etc can be changed, so if the wire snaps after some use, you haven't lost the use of the headphones & you could easily replace it. There is also a separate lead to control an ipod if you have one. The headphones also look fantastic, but........

they are some of the most uncomfortable headphones I've ever had. I've got an average sized head & they have a bulldog clip like quality, so if you've got a largish noggin, it'll be like putting your head in a vice after a while & there is also not much clearance between your ear & the speaker, so again, you might find the tightness forcing part of the speaker to touch your outer ear. There is a solution to ease the tightness off though, I had to stretch them over a speaker cabinet (or you could use the box it comes with) & left them overnight & that has backed them off a bit. Ultimately this is the reason why I gave these headphones 4 & not 5 stars as the designers should have recognised this & the headphones could do with a deeper foam surround on the earpieces.

Overall, I do like them very much & would recommend them with the above caveats

Firstly, agree with prior review that states these cans are heavy. Initially, yes they are, but once you put them on you lose that sense of their weight. They are a tight fitting against the ear area and don't leave you feeling as if you need to press them against your ear to get a better sound. The whole experience from opening the box to using them oozes class - leather carry case with additional cloth bag cover for the phones themselves. Gold connectors and strong material covered cables. Fold neatly up on themselves to leave nothing prone to being knocked and broken. Oh! And the sound, excellent better than I expected, almost as good as the B&W P5's I own. Will say no more but highly recommend these Klipsch M40's if you want a pair of noise cancelling headphones that look the biz and don't cost the earth. Especially since they are on offer via Amazon. Delivery on time and very well packed. Thanks Amazon - again!

These M40s are amazing, I'm totally addicted to them! The sound is to die for, the noise cancelling isn't powerful but it does a good job taking the edge off things and removing droney noises, but importantly it makes for perfect bass when it boosts it up. They are pretty comfortable, the leather memory foam ear pads are lush. They look awesome too, high quality with gold contacts, leather case, women cable etc. Amazing deal and delivery, get them quick!!! :D

This pair of headset left me with two different feelings, both pleasant and unpleasant.

The positive part:

Its quality is superb; I could easily place them among the best headphones, quality-wise: very sturdy, excellent build quality and materials. From the aesthetic point of view they look very luxurious; the combination of copper/bronze and black gives away a very expensive feeling. Even from the initial seconds while opening the nice box, everything points to quality and luxury. A soft pouch, a leather hard-case, gold plated jacks, excellent cables, soft ear-cushions. It feels like a rip-off at their price.

About its noise canceling performance I can say that it does an overall good job. The active noise canceling is not very strong, at least compared to the Bose QuietComfort 15, but it definitely gains lots of points because of its passive isolation. This is a good thing, in my opinion, as one can get substantial immediate noise reduction, even without turning the electronic circuitry on the headphones and enhance it further. The active noise cancellation being weaker than that of Bose makes it also more pleasant when there is no music; the latter produces stronger pressure on the ear, something that cannot be felt with this unit. All in all, very good performance.

The sound is very good also. It is substantially amplified when turning on the noise cancellation and it definitely sounds better this way. However, even with the noise cancellation set to off, the sound is rich and warm. I am sure that other headphones are way better; still, this pair is beyond simply acceptable.

The negative part:

It is tight, very tight. And this makes it very unpleasant.

I have tried Souls, Beats & owned Koss Pro 4a's, Bang & Olufsen, Shure in ear, Bose on ear & Sony over's. THE KLIPSCH are by far the best headset I have had the pleasure to own. The quality of reproduction of 320kbps tracks is very impressive (Haven't tried Flac to date) without the ANC enabled. With the ANC enabled these take you to another place altogether.
However there is bleed from the cans, my wife could hear Celine Dion's dulcet tones bass from Skrillex and high & low sound from other artists but said it was not overly intrusive, unlike the Bose. I do wonder how effective/annoying this would be to a non related passenger should you wish to listen to them at high volume. I would stress that I was playing them at 85% volume on an ipad.
As others have stated that the headphones will improve further with approx 40hrs burn I look forward to be even more impressed. Would I recommend them; indeed i would.
My only concern would be if the ANC failed, you could possibly buy better passive headphones, but would still be a tall order to compare with the clarity of these. The ANC does what it states on the tin, cuts out external noises; my wife was hovering the living room & dog was barking at the leaves & I was blissfully unaware. Uninterrupted listening!
Comfort: I like the feel, yes they are heavier and tighter than Souls & Beats but you would be being very critical if you stated they were uncomfortable. I haven't worn mine for more than 3hrs but apart from a wee bit of 'ear burn' they cover my ear fully & I cannot fault these straight out of the box.
Accessories: What more could one ask for or want...
Oh and a 2 year warranty which still covers them even though for some crazy reason Klipsch are discontinuing the Mode M40's. I highly recommend buying a set for a third of their initial MRP.
I am not worried aesthetics or street cred as at 54yrs young all that matters in the music!
They do look good though.....
