      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-M20x Professional Monitor Headphones:

      it is very good to use , but its ear buds are getting heat for long use, bass lovers kindly avoid it , u can get reasonable bass and good mid sounds and awsome high freq sounds other than that it has good design for this price, don't compare with rest of the m-series headsets ,it has also a affordable price ,headbands are made up of some good material. finally it is very cool and mainly for professional monitering purpose first understand that and buy if u have professional use or else u can go for any other audiotechnica models

      • Q:

        My ATH-M20x appears to have nothing that indicates which side is for the left ear and which for the right. Or are there L and R indicators, but I have not found them?

        Will these work with the Play Station 4
        Asked on 10/5/2015 by Fatal Ghost from Orlando Florida

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          The Playstation 4 (PS4) features a CTIA-TRRS Jack. The ATH-M20x features a 3.5mm Stereo-TRS Plug, with a 1/4" adapter. You should be able to connect the M20x 3.5mm stereo connector to the CTIA-TRRS connection on the PS4. However, since the M20x does not feature an in-line microphone, you will only be able to listen to audio coming from the PS4.

      • Q:

        compatibility with lumia 640

        hi there, my question is will they work with lumia 640 as these headphones have impedance of 47 ohm. thanx
        Asked on 7/31/2015 by neeraj

        1 answer

        • A:

          As most smartphones have low output impedance headphone amplifier sections, a 47 ohm load should not be a problem. A headphone impedance that is about 8 times that of the amplifiers output impedance is considered ideal. This will provide maximum voltage transfer and good damping of the drivers in the headphones.

      • Q:

        Are the drivers protected inside the earcup?

        Some headphones have grids to prevent ears or something else from poking the speaker cones.

        • A:

          Thank you for your inquiry. There is a perforated plastic covering to protect the driver.

      • Q:

        Voice Isolation

        Is the sound isolation function in the M20x as good as the M40x? What are the db values of the two headphone's sound isolation?

        Many thanks.
        Asked on 8/21/2014 by theconfusedone from United States

        1 answer

        • A:

          Thank you for your inquiry. These are both closed back, studio headphones so the do offer a degree of passive isolation although we do not measure that spec. Some headphone manufacturers do provide this spec in dB, although I believe this to be a meaningless spec, because the question is "dB of isolation at what frequency".
