MUNITIO developed the PRO40 with input from DJs, studio professionals and other industry pros. With ultra-soft protein leather and CODA AXIS™ in-line gimbal technology, the PRO40 ear cups provide comfort and natural range of motion without performance disruption.
Dynamic 40mm titanium-coated drivers are the beating heart and namesake of the PRO40, granting a detailed sonic experience from 20 Hz–20 kHz. Titanium has extremely low mass, requiring less power to move, allowing for higher volume at lower power. Additionally, titanium has no magnetic force, allowing for cleaner driver motion which maintains signal purity.
Neodymium magnets ensure pure sound reproduction; low frequencies sound expressive—not overpowering—with full mids and exceptionally clean highs. The PRO40 also features the proprietary Bass Enhancing Chamber™ for accurate bass without distortion. Premium materials give the PRO40s both strength and comfort—rugged aircraft-grade aluminium with a polymer band delivers a snug fit for enjoyable listening with maximum noise isolation.
“I’ve spent the last couple years working with DJs, studio engineers and other music industry professionals to learn what’s most important to them in a premium headphone design,” said Daniel Massaro, MUNITIO founder and the PRO40’s lead designer. “The PRO40s are a direct reflection of the feedback they’ve provided and the personal testing we’ve done with the most demanding headphone users.”
“What the PRO40s have achieved in terms of quality, style and durability is truly amazing,” said Bill Thiele, vice president of MUNITIO. “Whether traveling, in studio, at home, watching a movie or working the DJ booth, our most discerning PRO40 users will have an amazing listening experience. The industry feedback we’ve integrated into the design of the PRO40 makes it beyond exceptional.”
The PRO40 comes with a three-button [M]ic Control™ cable and a 24K gold-plated 3.5 mm stereo plug to maintain signal purity and call functionality. A free coil cable and ¼” adapter are also available via MUNITIO.com for PRO40 owners. Each PRO40 includes a hard-shell case with D-ring and carabineer for protection and portability. The PRO40s MSRP at $349.99, include a two-year manufacturer’s replacement warranty and will be available at Amazon, Huppin’s/OneCall, Fry’s, and MUNITIO.com.
“I want a pair of headphones that inspire a great performance. When you put on a dull set, a lot of emotion is lost. Whoever said studio reference means stale? I want something both accurate and enjoyable. MUNITIO headphones are just that.” – Kenny Barto, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League
“If you’re on stage or constantly on the move from a tour bus or airport to the studio and promotional appearances, you want a headphone with equal parts comfort, sound quality, durability and styling. The PRO40s deliver on all fronts and it’s been rewarding to be part of their development from the very earliest prototypes to the polished cans they are now.” – Kool Kojak, Producer, songwriter, artist
