    The Audio-Technica ATH-PRO5X boasts lightweight, yet sturdy construction and comes with two interchangeable, locking cables. The PRO5X headphones are equipped with 40 mm drivers capable of handling 1,500mW of input power, giving you extremely accurate sound reproduction that remains distortion-free even at high volume. And the soft, durable ear pads fit comfortably over the ears to provide excellent sound isolation.

    One of the greatest challenges for professional DJs is monitoring the mix in very loud clubs, DJ booths or festival stages. In order to get produce quality sound for such large crowds, bigger, more powerful sound systems are required. That usually means line array systems with massive subwoofers that are tasked with pumping out enough bass to penetrate the entire audience. The problem is that the DJ's headphones must overcome the house sound—the song that is playing out to the crowd—in order to let him or her cue up the next track and beat match it to the outgoing track. That's where the Audio-Technica ATH-PRO5X's sound-isolating ear cups come into play, allowing the DJ to block out the house system enough to be able to hear what the headphones are reproducing.

    When it comes to sound reproduction, a DJ needs headphones that deliver powerful, clean audio without distortion. The ATH-PRO5X cans let you hear every nuance of the music, from the deep kick drum to the faint high-hat snare, so you don't miss a beat when you're deep in the mix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Perfect Headphone for Indoor Use I purchased these headphones a few days ago, I played various genres and a plethora of music scores, soundtracks and songs on them, including podcasts. This headphone brings the vocals forwards in most genres such as fine musics, it struggles with a battle between rough bass and vocals in genres such as EDM due to its dynamic driver. Bass is standard, though it was made quite excellently for those who would naturally purchase this for studio purposes since that this their audience with these headphones. Treble is perfect, it applies a sensation fill to the beat, this will typically work well on Asian-style music, especially Chinese and Japanese (Shinobue, a traditional Japanese flute {a perfect example}). The highs are great, but it does not fit that perfect level sensation which is excusable due to it being design for studio use (natural sound), the headphones like all studio headphones are easily adjustable with an equaliser. Overall the headphone is worth price for those who wish to use it for its exact purpose, the only negative feature is that it does not include a case for portable use as such.
