Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Specifically For

General Features

Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 20,000 Hz
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
100 dB
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
65 Ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Secondary Color
A color that compliments the main color of the product.

Excellent Audio at unbeatable price.

April 28, 2011

Im blown away at the sound quality of these headphones for the price. Unbelievable!! I own a ton of different headphones ranging from basic "included with purchase" headphones to high end audiophile cans and these Audio Technica ATH-M35 sound amaze me every-time I put them on.

Now I'm not saying these are the BEST headphones out there, but they could be the best for the price. The sound quality is really even. There aren't any "accelerated" frequencies (like added bass with the Monster Beats or Sony MDR-XB700). When I listen to my music it sounds great... period. I listen to a lot of rock, fold, indie, etc. I dont really use these headphones for my electronica or hip-hop because i have others that sound better for those styles (bassy, full sound). The sound stage is defined and open. They are comfortable, but not the most comfortable on the market. The fit is tight and snug, but not burdensome.

Overall, these headphones are fantastic! I put the sound quality on par with the Sennheiser HD 280 Pro or the Shure SRH440. I think the HD280 and the SRH440 are more comfortable, but they are also more expensive.

For the price, best headphone purchase I've ever made!

Great Headphones

September 17, 2013

I bought these headphones hoping they would be mid level quality headphones. They surpassed my expectations. Very high quality, the extra long cord is nice to have and they close up for travel real well.

Amazing Audio Balance and Value!

June 12, 2013

Audio Technica knows how to make great studio headphones. They are not heavy on bass like Beats and others and have a very clean sound. My other pair of headphones is Audio Technica ATHM50, a step up and even a little better. A lot of post production studios as well as production studios use AT headphones. There is a Cadillac commercial that shows a kid on a skateboard listening to music and he has a pair of ATHM50's on that I'm sure the prop stylist borrowed from the sound guy. Can't say enough about the value of both of these headphones.
