Hey guys,

 

After lots of searching for the perfect basshead headphone up to $150, I have come to the two headphones in the title (Audio Technica PRO700MK2 and M-Audio Q40). Which one is better overall (sound, build quality etc.) without taking price into consideration?

 

Thanks!!

I've owned both and the M-Audio Q40 win when it comes to sound quality, but the PRO700 MK2 has the better build quality and will easily last longer than the Q40.

Ah okay I understand. What did you like more about the Q40 soundwise?

Almost everything. Better mids, better highs and the bass is more to my liking. The PRO700 MK2 has more impact to the bass but to me the bass on the Q40 is faster and goes lower.

Ohh okay. Seems like the Q40 has better sound. Does the Q40 still have solid build quality?

The newer model of the PRO700MK2 is 68ohm and it performs better than the Q40 in my opinion. I own both of these and would prefer the PRO700MK2 any day. The only problem is that they're really uncomfortable. The Q40 beats it on comfort hands down. I personally think the PRO700MK2 sound more expensive than what they are. The Q40 is still a good headphone though, even though the build quality is laughable, they deliver some decent bass, but the PRO700MK2 are bass monsters with an amp. I know i am late because your thread was some time ago, but just thought i would try and help out if you was still not sure.
