  • Summary: My point of reference is the DT880. To me, the A500s have a somewhat bloated bass with hardly any detail. While with other headphones, one may notice the individual bass notes, the A500s seem to muddle them together. Mids take a bit of a backseat to the highs and especially the bass. The presentation will be a bit blended together and messy. Most sane people would opt not to use these on the go. Although they are closed, the fashion factor is nil.

  • Summary: So I bought my amazing PC, with a HT system and the last thing I needed was a good headphone. My friends advised me to go for the Audio Technica ATH serie. They told me it was top of the bill.   I love gaming, music, movies and series. Those were the things I wanted to buy a headphone for in combination with a Zalman clip on microphone.   Audio Quality   For starters the sound quality overall is really good.
  • Pros: Isolation, comfort, soundstage, range (high, mid, low)
  • Cons: Durability, sound color (enclosed, unnatural)

  • Excerpt: Вчера заметил, что друг пользуется эквалайзером на плеере, удивился, взял у него наушники (ATH-A500), сравнил со своими (Sennheiser HD558, открытые). Звучание A500 мне не понравилось, оно в целом какое-то серединистое, «закрытое», ослаблены НЧ, нижний край АЧХ практически не слышен, верхняя середина чуть выделена, но самых высоких частот тоже не хватает.
  • Pros: В принципе, неплохие наушники
  • Cons: Конструкция оголовья не очень удобна, владелец что-то там укреплял с помощью изоленты. Звучание не вполне соответствует стомости.
