Whether you're tracking, mixing or listening, you can expect sonic accuracy from your Studiophile Q40 headphones-designed by M-Audio, leading provider of reference monitor technology. With professional-grade dynamic drivers and ear cups that completely surround the ears, the Q40 headphones deliver full-range specs with excellent isolation from outside noise. Lightweight construction and comfortable earpads make them ideal for long studio sessions or hours of listening. These sturdy phones are collapsible for easy travel and even include a detachable/replaceable 3-meter cable to protect your investment. Whether you're making music or just enjoying it, the Studiophile Q40 headphones let you get the most out of the experience.

Comfort and convenience
The Studiophile Q40s are designed to go the distance with you-from traveling the globe to marathon studio sessions. A collapsible design means they'll easily fit in your carry-on luggage. The included storage bag protects them from dust and damage. The convenient removable and replaceable cord extends the life of your investment. And the large, padded ear cups completely surround your ears, ensuring a comfortable fit hour after hour.

Superior drivers
Full frequency response owes much to the size and construction of a speaker's driver. The Studiophile Q40 headphones feature extra-large 40mm-diameter drivers-bigger than most other headphones-for extended low frequencies. Bass response is also enhanced by efficient components like neodymium magnets, copper-clad aluminum voice coils and vented diaphragms made of low-mass treated mylar. These elements come together in M-Audio's custom enclosure, which has been specially tuned to further maximize low-frequency extension.

Closed-back, circum-aural design
With sealed backings and comfortable ear cups that completely surround the ears, the Studiophile Q40 headphones deliver excellent sonic isolation for accurate monitoring. You'll hear more detail at lower volumes, so you can protect your hearing while tracking, mixing or listening in any noisy environment. In addition, the Q40 headphones afford privacy when working in a shared space.

Full frequency response
Headphones deliver a level of sound quality matched only by speakers costing a great deal more-especially when it comes to low frequencies. With the Studiophile Q40 headphones, you'll feel like you're listening to a full-sized set of reference monitors in a professional studio environment. The Q40s provide excellent imaging and a wide sound stage for accurate mixing-without the hassle of worrying about speaker placement or room acoustics.
