Summary: After owning them for a year, I still really love these headphones. For $100, this was one of the best purchases I have made! The sound quality is on par with Bose, M-50's, and the Grado sr60i. The isolation is good enough that I used them on the bus and in the library often. They sound much more spacious than the M-50, but it isn't the same as open headphones. The bass isn't as heavy as the M-50, which makes it slightly less interesting when listening to trance.
Pros: Sound quality, Comfort, Light weight, Spacious sounding, Quality To Price Ration, and Isolating
Summary: I had these and used these as my primary method of enjoying music, films and video games for 18 months until I replaced them with a more expensive model of a different brand. Before I owned these, my "greatest headphones" were $40 VOIP headsets. I won't even begin to claim I have golden ears or anything like that, but even a philistine like me could tell that these things were a million miles ahead of any game headset or stock Zune earbuds around.
Pros: Detailed, comfortable, smooth and clear. Free from most outside noise, easy to power, very affordable
Cons: Not end-all be-all of headphones. If these are good, other more expensive models are great.
Summary: These headphones are honestly incredible. not much more to say. i dont have much free money to throw around, but i bought these, then a year later had the chance to compare them to the sen HD 800's and a pair of nice grados
I honestly preferred the sound of these
you would NOT regret the decision to buy these unless you really cant stand carrying around larger headphones
trust me, its worth it though
Pros: SOUND STAGE- epically full, clear, and rich sound- exactaly what i wanted out of a set of cans
Summary: If you want to listen at low volumes, in the same room with other people, or in privacy this is a great option. The isolation from the ambient noise is excellent allowing you to save your ears with low volume. There is no heat problem and they are comfortable to wear for hours.
I love my AKG 702's, if I had bought these first, I would have stopped looking, to my loss.
Pros: Excellent reproduction, comfort and isolation
Summary: I was about to bag a pair of the open version ATH-AD700 then saw these on the demo stand... The difference was clear. The sound was so much fuller on this closed version. I was tapping my feet!
These are so close to perfect it's tantalising. Lovely full and open sound from a very comfortable pair of large cans. Just what I wanted. Tried Grado, Shure and Sennheiser in same price range - nowhere close for my tastes.
Pros: Very comfortable, best non-Stax phones I have heard
Cons: So close to perfect that perfect seems just out of reach!
Summary: I have had these headphones for four months now, and they are great. They are relatively inexpensive (at around $120 on amazon), and have a very good balanced sound.
The frequency response is pretty good, but they lack bass. With amplification (I am using the fiio e7 e9 combo), the bass becomes more prominent and the sound is much fuller than unamplified.
Pros: Very large soundstage, very comfortable, easy to drive, balanced sound overall
Summary: The ATH-A700 headphones are perfect if you want to game or listen to music. They are by far, the most comfortable headphones Ive ever owned, which is perfect for hours of gaming or listening. In terms of music, the ATH-AD700 also sold on mwave will probably sound a little better, just because their open headphones which gives a larger soundstage, but where the ATH-AD700 shines is the nice low bass that the closed headphones produce, the noise isolation, and also the lack...
Pros: - closed headphones prevent sound leakage - closed headphone allows noise isolation - extremely comfortable - amazing sound positioning - beautiful and heavy build - does not require any additional ampage to produce great sound.
Cons: - headphones are pretty big, so not a likely choice for portable use.
Summary: Audio Technica ATH-A700 Closed-Back Dynamic Headphones With Double Air Damping
I've had these for about a week so far and they are simply amazing. My old Sony DJ headphones needed to be replaced and I searched for a long time before I had decided on these. The quality is simply amazing if you are a hardcore audio fanatic. If you are planning on buying a pair for FLAC and V0 formats, you cannot go wrong, they sound crystal clear.
Summary: This is my first high-end headphones and i have to say, I am completely blown away. I originally bought these to compliment a high-end gaming and music computer that i built and it is a wonderful addition.
As other reviewers have mentioned, these cans are geared more towards higher frequencies. Rock, Techno and Acoustic Guitar all sound excellent; the high notes are crisp and clear.
