Audio Technica ATH-A500

What Hi-Fi?
7 January 2010
  • Excerpt: These Audio Technica s are of the closed-back variety. Sonically at a slight disadvantage to their open-backed peers (due to more colouration from the enclosure) this pair are nonetheless quite special. They produce a welcoming openness, and detail levels are on a par with the best closed-back cans we've heard at this price.

  • Cons: Ears can get hot

  • Excerpt: Ce casque est tout simplement une tuerie ! Le confort est optimal avec son système d'ailettes sur le crâne bien qu'elles puissent provoquer des petits bruits de frottements de plastiques lors de la mise en place. Les coussins sont très accueillants et l'arceau ne sert par trop la tête, rien de comparable avec les AKG et Beyerdynamic qui m'...
