Bottom Line

The Audio-Technica ATH-M30x offers a rich and clean sound with an accurate bass response. Their 'L' and 'R' are on the inside of the headband which can become a bit annoying, they are a well priced pair of headphones that deliver a full sound.

The Audio-Technica ATH-M30x is a popular studio headphone set that has received positive reviews for its overall sound quality, producing a rich and clean sound with a decent bass response. The overall comfort is also a plus for many, with some stating that the Audio-Technica ATH-M50X headphones are slightly more comfortable. The price of these were also a major plus for users along with their collapsible structure, making them very portable. Some users did however not like the fact that these had their ‘L’ and ‘R’ placement on the inside of the headband, saying it makes it quite difficult to spot in dim lit areas. The Audio-Technica ATH-M30X studio headphones are a well priced pair of studio headphones that really do outshine most of its competitors in the price range when it comes to overall performance. The M50X’s are superior according to reports, but they are also significantly more expensive.

    "While they're not in the same league as the step-up ATH-M50 headphones, the Audio-Technica ATH-M30 set costs a lot less and offers impressive performance and decent build quality for the money."
