My late headphones set the standard by which I judge all others. With a pair of titanium drivers, they had the best frequency response of any set of headphones I have ever used. There were two problems: they were open, and the cord was extremely thin and prone to breaking.

Enter the ATH-M30. With a thick cord entering on only one side and nearly impervious to wear and tear, closed ears eliminating much external noise, thick and soft padding that makes long duration listening comfortable, a padded head band, (everywhere that directly touches the head is padded... some serious points there) and constructed of hard plastic and metal that bends and doesn't break. And of course sound quality and frequency response... the specs say 20Hz - 20 KHz, and while I haven't tested the high end, the low end is beautiful and strong. If you watch a movie with these and a plane flies overhead, you are not alone if you take the headphones off to make sure one didn't really fly overhead. Great signal-to-noise ratio and frequency response that makes the inadequacies of MP3s immediately apparent. If there were a similar pair of headphones that had titanium drivers, there would be a slight quality increase, but it's great as it is.

Sound quality 4.5 (5 being with titanium drivers)
Signal-to-noise 5
Construction 5
Comfort 4.5
Range/Frequency response 4.5
Durability 5

After purchasing an iPod mini, I thought I could use much better headphones to test the quality of the aiff files provided by iTunes. I must emphasize that I am not an expert as the other reviewers. When choosing this pair, I read reviews and looked for high quality under 50 bucks. These headphones put my big stereo speakers to shame. I can hear the background singers and instruments I haven't heard before. They sound completely awesome! (no, really, they do). There is a little bit of leak, not much. and they are extremely comfortable and lightweight on the head. I'll be testing them out extensively this weekend while traveling on airplanes. Update on airplane use: they are not noise canceling headphones, but they did block the noise of a few verbally obnoxious passengers, and while volume was cranked up, no one knew how much the tunes were cranked up. My friends that have tried them out call them *amazing*, like a symphony hall.
Around the house, they block out flushing toilets, dishwashers, and those annoying sounds from the kids' room. The cord is super long, so I can keep my iPod in it's dock on the kitchen counter and walk around and cook dinner and clean. And the connector has a strain relief so I know that the cord won't break off from running around.
I also needed headphones to go with my laptop while watching DVDs and listening to music and other computer things. Unlike my other cd headphones, these are in stereo and pick up amazing sounds. Also, they block out the computer sounds of the dvd spinning.
I suppose they weren't made for household use, but they sound so good, that they will keep me happy for a long time, baby.

These headphones are great if you want something cheap and portable. They absolutely cannot compete with higher quality headphones from companies like Sennheiser and the like. I primarily use these headphones for listening to Pandora at work, but at home on my hobby computer where I do most of my audio work, the Sennheiser HD 280 Pros and Sennheiser HD 555s beat them handily in every performance metric. The most noticeable problem with these headphones for me is that they do not seem to clearly output sound in the mid to mid-low range. Though I have not investigated the audio drivers, it seems as though they are tuned for most of their performance in the highs to the mids and then in order to push them as a performance model, some fair low end bass performance was tacked on later. Sounds that shift from mid to low are drowned out and sometimes bass comes at you unexpectedly since it seems to be driven a bit more powerfully.

If you are looking for the best sound, don't buy these. If you want a set of headphones that you can use everyday that sound way better than a set of earbuds get these.

I don't want anyone to think that these headphones are not good. They are *absolutely great* for a price of $45 and they will be worth it to you if you do not want to purchase a higher end model or if you are listening to low quality mp3s. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to be able to actually hear their music and can't/doesn't want to buy a higher end set. I rated them a 4 out of 5 due to the low price and more than acceptable sound.

I bought a pair of these for my husband for Christmas, and I'm back on Amazon to buy a pair for myself! I researched a lot of other brands, but the ATH-M30 had the most positive feedback. I'm happy to say that everything I read about these headphones turned out to be true: they're durable, comfortable, have excellent sound quality and work well with iPods, computers, discmans, etc.

My husband has a rather large head, and has complained in the past about headphones hurting his ears and/or his head after long periods of use. The ATH-M30's are sturdy, yet light-weight and comfortable. He LOVES them.

I will say that these headphones do not block outside noise 100%, though they come very close to it. They also do an excellent job of trapping sound inside the headphones; I cannot hear ANYTHING that my husband is listening to when he is wearing them. We both fly a lot, so I'm glad to find headphones that will not irritate the person sitting next to me on the plane.

I definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for the best quality headphones without spending a lot of money.
