Anybody ever tried the AudioTechnica ATH-M40fs?


I have been using them for a few years and I really like the flat 
response; they don't have that exagerated boom that muds up the mix but 
rather feature a very "polite" bass, that only shows what's really 
Oh, output is no problem for them, and they also feature replaceable 
parts. Maybe a bit on the expensive side, too, but as Scott said, way 
worth it. :-)
