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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
