[Amazon Canada] Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Headphones - $69.74

Great set of headphones.

Lowest they have been in a few years. They were $69 in 2015.

Had these for some time. For people who are planning to use this as a "portable" set, note that the cable is pretty long.

I tried the entire line (up to the m50x), the m40x is the one to get imo. The jump from the m20x/m30x to the m40x is pretty big, m40x to m50x is pretty much just a little more bass and slightly better but heavier construction.

M40x is great but it is noticeable jump. I have M50x and I see it used in recording studios for headphone mixes.

Any of the headphones in this line up is well worth it anyways. It all comes down to your budget. I owned a M30x too and I was pretty satisfied with it.

At this price, its really a steal.

What if I wanted headphones to watch movies that have DST-HD/Dolby HD? Would the M40x give me a more cinematic experience than the M30x?

Are you talking about surround sound?.

It should be similar or the same(depending on how the audio was mixed in the movie). Headphones have stereo outputs. It cannot have surround sound. It will take the "stereo out" mix within the DTS.

It would be better to choose stereo option of the movie if you are going to use headphones. Generally speaking, It will be a little more clearer and it is more efficient in fooling your ears because it was mixed that way from the beginning.

Anyways M40x wont give you a more "cinematic experience" than M30x but it will have a little better quality in your overall listening experience.

For this price though. I would take M30x.

Unlike with the M30x, the M40x and 50x have detachable cables so you can (i) easily replace the cable if it gets damaged, (ii) use different lengths and (iii) go with either coiled or non-coiled cables.

For this reason alone, I wouldn't consider the M30s.

I think the m40x would actually be better for studio mixing since they are tuned a little flatter, the overall sound quality isnt much different though. I recommend listening to them both, most people seem to prefer the slightly boosted bass of the m50x. You can also make the m40x sound more like the m50x with a little eq tweaking, the rock preset on ios sounds about right if I remember correctly.
