Conclusion: The ATH-A700’s succeed in every aspect that the AD700’s fail and, as such, are a radically superior headphone. Given their excellent sound quality, adequate sound isolation, comfortable fit and solid construction, we are happy to say that the AD700’s are an excellent headphone and a slam dunk value at an M.S.R.P. of $179.
Conclusion: After three weeks with the ATH-A700 Closed-back Dynamic Headphones, we very much enjoyed these but we encountered a few caveats. The ATH-A700 headphones are extremely comfortable and these look beautiful. The headphones were very good in our music testing, but we feel its sound signature is absolutely an acquired taste and may not be for everyone. Movie playback was absolutely excellent and was only surpassed by the Corsair HS1 .
