Full frequency response owes much to the size and construction of a speaker’s driver. The M-Audio 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.

With sealed backings and comfortable ear cups that completely surround the ears, the M-Audio 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.

Headphones deliver a level of audio fidelity 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.
