    We use these as backup monitors for our DSLR rig - simple combo of DR-100, 60D and basic steadicam.

    Whilst not being 4-driver in-ear monitors, they also cost about 20 bucks, and for that price, the sound is amazing (and also LITERALLY 1 100th of the price...)!

    The one thing I would look out for is the lead - if you're taking them on a shoot - bring a rubber band..

    Things to avoid:
    - Stepping on them,
    - Using them to mix U2
    - using them on trains and buses (NO earphones should be used on public transport - they sap your social prowess and numb your brain, plus - your rap music annoys EVERYONE).

    So there you have it - Audio Technica ATH-M2X.

    Pretty flipping awesome for the money.

    The Headphones sound fine for the price and everything. I just had the cushion fall off and I dont want to go through the hassle of returning it. I guess Ill buy some super glue and try to fix it myself.But I don't blame B&H for the poor review. They are so good in sending items so quickly and love 99% of products I buy from them.

        You can't beat the price. It's all plastic construction but it does have a nice design. The cord is slightly long which is not a big deal.

            I've had these for about 2 years, been traveling all over Africa and Europe, sleeping with the headphones on and still feels great in the morning. Yes, OK, one ear cushion fell off, but I put it back on! I'm going to buy 3 pairs to make sure I have them in stock for when they stop making them!

                The moment I tried on the headphones, I felt that it fit perfectly. As I use this at work for hours on end, I needed something that fit nicely and won't feel uncomfortable after having it on for a while.

                The sound quality was good as well. I'm not an audiophile but the sounds are clear and the bass wasn't too overpowering. For its price, this is definitely a great buy.

                    I use these mostly for digital home music recording recording and mixing. My long trusty high end Sennheisers bit the dust after 13 years and I just needed to run out and buy something cheap as a replacement until I could order a new pair of Sennheisers. These were SO light and didn't hurt my ears at all after several hours. The sound quality can't compare but they certainly are doing the job. They give an accurate enough representation...I'm rarely suprised when I run the final mix thru my JBL studio monitors or burn a disc and try it in my car. I'd say you can't go wrong with these!

                      We use these as backup monitors for our DSLR rig - simple combo of DR-100, 60D and basic steadicam.

                      Whilst not being 4-driver in-ear monitors, they also cost about 20 bucks, and for that price, the sound is amazing (and also LITERALLY 1 100th of the price...)!

                        I bought two of these and they are both connected to the same computer in my first grade classroom. The kids love them and I love that I can adjust the size to fit them comfortably as well as myself. I don't listen to music on them so cant tell you much on that level.

                          I'm a video editor and needed some headphones that not only provided good audio quality but were also comfortable enough to wear for sometimes 10 hours a day. After trying several different brands and models, I finally found these and this is the second pair that I've purchased. I'm really happy with them and would recommend them to anyone else who doesn't want to compromise on quality and comfort.

                            I use this headphones for video editing so the light weight feel of it is great for long use. Sound quality is not outstanding but it does the job needed, because we all know as we watch movies we don't just hear the movie.
