Summary: Desapointing at the first run, this headphone needs a 24 hours burnin period. The first impressions were mudy sound with masking low-mid, recessed mid, and weak presence of the hi. After that period the sound is more balanced with improved mid impression, more natural low balance and very clean hi.
Summary: The ATH –A900 headphones are top notch and exactly what I was looking for - something to use while watching DVDs on a Panasonic EZ485V DVD player fed through a DENON AVR 3803 surround sound amp.
Summary: A900 vs A900LTD? The physical changes are major and each alone has the potential for major sonic changes. Summary: A cord that keeps the grounds separate. The ground cord was an issue last couple of years as being able to make "huge" differences in sound all by itself.
Summary: No amp necessary, unbeatable genre bandwidth, very fun and impressive at first contact, but you soon find out that the A900 is only solid midfi. The level of detailling is quite poor, and the mids are -typically for a closed fon- recessed.
Summary: B/M/H: Bass: wow... Audio technica really wants to tell you that the bass is there. they do that by introducing some loud (and annoying imo) bass on us. the detail is there, but implied flabbiness (i'm sure it's only mostly there) of the bass makes me not like it very much.
Summary: I use this headphones for nearly two years. I'm quite happy with them...good all-around model (also for games and movies). My current sound source is: Creative SB X-Fi XG FPS > van den Hul Optocoupler MKII > Audio-Technica AT-HA25D My ratings: Bass Extension: 6 Bass Impact: 7 Bass Quality: 6 Mids...
Summary: My favorite headphones by far. They are very neutral sounding so the bass is not pronounced at all; however, it does go low and sounds great all the way down. Highs are amazing with a proper recording and source.
Summary: They are just great cans, and im not sure i can anything to whats already been said and my ratings, but... Sound - Must say even better. High's - Still very clean and concise, but the forced feeling seems to be gone.
Summary: The A900s are very good headphones for the money. I have compared them directly to CD3000s and find that these are quite similar sonically. The bass has good impact, but sometimes doesn't extend as far down as I would like it to.
Summary: Let me start by saying these headphones need a huge burn in time. I honestly believe it took near 300 hours for these to fully open up and show detail within clarity. I will review these along with the rating. Bass all around is decent, but the worst part of these headphones.
