My $50 Radio Shack 'phones got broken by one of my house guests, so one of them gave me a set of Audio Technica ATH-M40FS Precision StudioPhones.

Anybody familiar with them?

I have a pair of those Troll,they tend to be really bassy and not that good for mixing but work well for playback and other studio apps.

Find a deal on the ATH-M50s. They're excellent mixing phones for people who can't rely on monitors because the room they use sucks anyway. You can find them for a little less than $100 if you hunt.

There are some other good ones too...maybe search fro Best Headphones Under $100 and read what pops up on the gearslutz site...Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic have some nice models in that range. Beware of the Sony phones if you're mixing...they hype some frequencies...good for tracking, but deceptive for mixing.

I own both the ATH-M40 and 45 models ... as a radio and foh soundguy I want something that is very transparent - and they are ... remarkably so to my ears. Very balanced across the audio spectrum. Very clean. I've used others in the booth - but all in all I've more thoroughly enjoyed the Audio Techs more than anything else under $200 I've found to date.

Hey Troll you want my NEar 05 's ? Just pay for the shipping,I just ordered those Yamaha's and won't be needing them,you can have the Free stands that come with the package, I just bought too, I use paint cans with isolation pads so no need for stands on this end...

Let me know it'll be a least a week or so before I get them,think about it ?

Diki, thanks for the offer, but I'm so broke right now I can't afford to pay attention.

I like these 40s pretty well so far, except I'm not getting as much volume as I'd like, even with the comp and players turned way up. I'll have to do a little experimenting and see if I can find some more noise somewhere...

It's not the phones. I just don't seem to get much volume out of this computer. For speakers, I run through a pre-amp and then a stereo. I only get impressive volume when I crank the pre-amp.

The computer is getting old (about 5 years), and has the "click of death" on startup. I expect it to crash and burn any day now...
