Allen & Heath Xone xd-40 Professional monitoring headphones $30!
Musician's friend stupid deal of the day........got mine shipped for $33.48
I just received my white Ath-m50's yesterday, but this is too good of a deal for me to pass on. These are supposed to be great DJ cans. They are closed-back (sealed, like my AT's) , & would be a good spare set for tracking vocals.
Thanks OP, bought a pair. The AKG K422's I got from them last week ended up being defective, so I was looking for something else for portable listening. These look like they'll be even better.
Yeah, I got the AKG 422's last weekish & have been really impressed with them. They were much more comfortable than I anticipated. I'm expecting some pretty good things from the XOnes, also. Allen & Heath makes some great consoles.
I got my Xone XD-40 in the mail today, and they really sound great. I'm really pleased with the purchase, especially at $30. Will make great a headphone for portable use (albeit the coiled cord is a bit bulky).
Right out of the box, with not much burn in, they sound really good. The sound is surprisingly crisp and detailed for a closed headphone that's this compact. Quite a well-balanced and crisp/airy sound signature. The bass is well-defined and very punchy. My only nitpick is that it might be VERY SLIGHTLY bass-light for my tastes (I prefer a little extra bass). I like a slightly exaggerated bass response, and the XD-40 errs on the side of neutral in that department. The soundstage is close and intimate, not unlike my Allessandro MS1i (rebranded Grados), which is fine since I'm not a big fan of super-big, exaggerated soundstages anyway. If I wanted a huge soundstage, I'd listen to music on my home theater.
They're also extremely comfortable and light on the ear, with soft, high-quality fake-leather padded earpads and headband. They do a great job of creating a seal and blocking out outside noise.
Couldn't be happier with this purchase. They seem quite well-constructed and durable, so I hope to get a lot of mileage on the road with these cans.
