"The D40 fs is for anyone needing added bass response in headphones, and will serve in any professional area."
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
One thing to keep in mind with these phones...is the added bass response. Be warned! If you are planing to use these in a critical mixing format...the bass will seem much more than it really is....and it can be hard to conpensate as you listen and mix via your near fields or standard monitors.
In all other areas these phones rule! For what they are designes for...added bass.....10+
No frills....standard package....
Solid built and oh so nice to wear at long periods.
Comfortable and can wear at long times without being too heavy.
The reason why I came to this site to begin with. After several years of faithful service, one of the drivers needs replaced. This is due to my own abuse of the phones, not a problem with the constuction. (I love to use these phones when practising guitar...by plugging into my POD...or other FX. It's very easy to turn up....)
I have yet to find out if I can get replacement drivers for them..but I assume I will.
The audio technica line is pro all the way and worth the price.
The Wow Factor:
Head phones for me are a must..as I am in my personal studio working on stuff all he time. The D40fs phones provide a super sound with the added bass....BUT to used with caution in serious mixes....go with the flat D40.
I am trying to replace the driver....as I want to use these phones another 10 years and more.
