Merging acclaimed features of the M-Series headphones with a foldable, travel-friendly design, the black Audio-Technica ATH-M30x monitor headphones offer solid build quality and audio performance for studio-based production, location recording, and daily listening. Outfitted with 40mm dynamic drivers and an over-ear, closed-back design, the ATH-M30x headphones deliver enhanced midrange definition and wide bandwidth (15 Hz to 22 kHz) while isolating you from outside sounds.

Thanks to the 15° swiveling earcups, high-quality materials, and generous cushioning on the headband and earpads, the headphones are both durable and comfortable to wear. Exiting from the left earcup, the attached 9.8' cable reduces tangles and simplifies channel identification. The cable sports a gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug for use with mobile devices and computer soundcards, and a 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for easy hookup to audio interfaces, mixers, and stereo receivers. A carrying pouch is supplied with the ATH-M30x for convenient storage and transport of the headphones.

40mm Drivers
The ATH-M30x features 40mm dynamic drivers with rare earth (neodymium) magnets and CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) voice coils for quality sound reproduction at a competitive price point.
Tuned for Enhanced Midrange Definition
The drivers and headphone design work together to provide a sonic signature tuned for increased detailed and enhanced midrange definition. With a frequency response of 15 Hz to 22 kHz, the ATH-M30x can reproduce a full spectrum of tones.
Over-Ear, Sound-Isolating Design
The ATH-M30x utilizes a circumaural design that contours around the ears for excellent sound isolation in loud environments. This over-ear, closed-back style is optimal for reducing bleed and separating you from outside sounds.
15° Swiveling Earcups and Foldable Design
Equipped with 15° swiveling earcups, the ATH-M30x ensures a great fit. The earcups fold up to meet the headband, saving space during storage. A carrying pouch is supplied for protection and convenience while transporting the headphones.
Attached Single-Sided Cable
Keeping it simple and clean, the ATH-M30x incorporates an attached 9.8' cable that exits from the left side. This increases convenience and makes it easier to distinguish the different sides of the headphone.
3.5mm Plug and 1/4" Screw-On Adapter
The attached cable is terminated with a gold-plated 3.5mm TRS mini plug for easy hookup to mobile devices, MP3 players, and computer headphone jacks. A secure 1/4" screw-on adapter is included for compatibility connectivity with audio interfaces, mixers, and dedicated headphone amplifiers. Built-in strain relief on the 3.5mm mini plug reduces the likelihood of damaging the connection if the cable is pulled.
Solid Build Quality
Thanks to the high-quality materials used in the ATH-M30x, the headphones balance comfort and strength while delivering enhanced audio and effective isolation.

Audio-Technica ATH-M30X Reviews

Adore these

By Noah
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-23

These are an excellent pair of monitoring (I even do some light mixing with them) headphones. I got an open box set that made the price point even more attractive. While pretty comfortable, I do still find ear fatigue becomes a problem after an hour or two at the desk. (But that just encourages you to stand up and take a walk, anyway.)

Great sound, good quality. However, the cord is too long.

They are a little uncomfortable and will be hard to ware them for longer than 2 hours. Sound quality is great but sure might be other brands and specials that beat this up on every aspect

This is a great pear of Headphones for music production. I bought these a couple weeks ago because I wanted some studio headphones to connect directly to my audio interface so I can record my friend in a more efficient manner with less latency in FL Studio 20. I love these headphones and my friend also loves them. 10/10 would definitely recommend

Perfect for my studio needs. I have others, but these are a great addition for a lower end headphone with a high quality sound for the $.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are extremely comfortable, and competent studio monitors for the price. I with the materials felt a little better, but they are the same as the big brother M50X so I can't complain too much.

Asked by: Erin
Unfortunately we do not have a specific spec for the size of the pouch. It is snuggly fitted to the width of the headphones when folded, roughly seven inches or so.

What is the difference between the m20s and m30s in terms of sound and comfort ?
Asked by: Steve
M30 is better sounding and handles more power, so louder. They have better high frequency performance. The comfort level is comparable, very little difference if any, ; similar structurally, the M20 are SLIGHTLY lighter weight (7oz. vs 8oz.)
