      After seeing some overly negative reviews upon this pair of headphones I was hesitant to purchase them. In a rush however I decided I needed to purchase a set today to properly assess a concert I had recently filmed. After having a few pairs including a well used pair of Sony mdr 7506 retailing around 99 dollars I came at these [$] pieces with a hesitation as to the quality. Upon putting the massive yet comfortable and spacious headphones on my ears and cranked up the volume putting it through Buyer Beware by Hans Zimmerman and James Newton Howard, King Of Anything by Sara Bareilles, and No Love by Eminem and Lil Wayne the speakers came to life desribing each instrument in it's own range of organic rhythm. Extremely crisp with every detail having an acute presence, no instrument had too much power nor were the bass tones muddy. Excellent headphones, they will not disappoint.

          I use these for video editing in an office environment. Comfortable to wear. Cord is long enough that I can do all tasks without unplugging.

          Used for monitoring, mixing and listening. As soon as I plugged the headphone in my PC, I just could hear everything that I have been listening on my near-field monitor. It just sounded good with clarity and bass.

            I bought two sets of these headphones, one for me and one for my son. We use them when we are making our indie films and find that they work great on his professional camera and on my semi-professional camera. They are especially good inside and great outside, as well.

                I bought this primarily as part of an audio kit for short film project, Air Waves, that is going into production next week.

                I've tested it out a few times and it worked flawlessly both listening to the test tracks on the computer and getting live feed while recording.

                Only complaint might be that the inner fabric scratches my left ear a bit which could very well be my "ear type."

                                Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M10 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones:

                                With its 40 ohms impedence, it sounds great on a laptop and even on a mobile mp3 device. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wants a nice sounding bargain pair of headphones.
