      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-E40 Professional In-Ear Monitor Headphones:

      I have this E40 with me for the last three months and I totally in love with it. It's my very first IEM and I'm sure glad to bought this product.
      The amount of bass in this IEM is just on the right spot for my ears (I'm not that much of a bass-head). The high frequency is rather smooth.
      Maybe some say it's to bulky and stuff, but for me it's not as bulky as they say. But the drawback is the cable feels a bit thin and feels like you might snap it accidentally if you're not careful enough. I personally would prefer just a tiny bit thicker cable.

      But overall, the body construction of this IEM is great, the sound is lovely, the price? Totally worth it !!
      If you're thinking to upgrade your IEM from entry level to a better stage, you should try and consider to get one of this.

          Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-E40 Professional In-Ear Monitor Headphones:

          These in-ear headphones were my first from Audio-Technica's lineup. The sound quality on these headphones are superb and can definitely handle bass with quality and clarity. Out of the box these headphones do not provide a passive bass boost but that should not deter any user from purchasing these headphones. They can handle bass without the audio/vocals being distorted.

          Compared to my previous Sennheiser In-Ear headphones, these are huge, might it be the drivers or the housing of the drivers, nonetheless these headphones are comfortable and I have worn them for hours without discomfort. One gripe I do have however is that the earmolds are not by option nor are they removable which is a nuisance. Every time I take off my headphones I have to fiddle or "reshape" the earmolds which is annoying. I have tried looking for aftermarket solutions since these headphones do come with A2DC (the drivers are detachable from the cables). It would've been a nice addition if they included different types of cables, otherwise the A2DC design is redundant as by the time of writing this review I cannot find any cables.

              Plug them in and listen, the sound won't change in any significant manner.

              If you "must" do break in, 12 hours of pink noise at moderate levels should aid the imagination.
