The SR80E's highs and lows are boosted, making the sound detailed and punchy, and should result in a fun listening experience. This is enhanced by a wide soundstage and defined imaging that other headphones in the price category cannot match. See More
The highs are quite forward which brings out a lot of detail from the music. The mids, while not upfront, have nice presence and body to the music. The bass has good impact and is well-defined. The SR80e works best for rock, country or live music, but can also perform well for classical music, EDM and similar genres. See More
Th ear cups sport an open-back design, with mesh as the only covering on the driver. This gives a good sound stage which, while not very wide, is enough to give a feeling that the sound is coming from some distance away instead of just from beside your ears. This gives the music a more natural feel. See More
The bass stands out as it is full and has good extension. The mid-range may not be the most detailed, but there is a smoothness to it that gives the sound a warm and pleasing quality. There is a slight roll-off to the high frequencies yet detail and extension is still good . Overall, these headphones can give a fun listening experience that can work well with all genres of music.

Aside from headband adjustment, users can also adjust the clamping force of the ear cups using the Comfort Zone system. This changes how secure the ear cups attach to the headband, which results in either a loose or tight clamp. See More
The M40x can be used for casual music listening, studio tracking or on the go. The fairly balanced sound signature is versatile and works well with virtually all music genres. Build is solid, comfort top notch, with removable cables and foldable yokes for easy transport. This feature set is one of the best in the price range. See More
Sound signature is quite accurate, almost flat. Bass is much more controlled instead of boomy, while there is a slight elevation on the highs, resulting in extra energy and detail up top. These offer a nice middle ground between a fun sound and a more reference/analytical sound signature. This sound quality makes the headphones quite versatile as music enjoyment headphones or studio-use cans. See More
