  • 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. I am a huge fan of surround sound, but currently do not have the money to upgrade my speakers to a 7.1 setup. Thus, getting a decent set of cans is the best way to go - for the time being.

  • 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. btw, i gave the bass extension and impact high marks cuz it really is extended and impactful. the quality just isn't there, imo. mids: it's good and all....

  • Summary: The ATH-A900 are very decent headphones. However they do have a metallic edge to their sound. The bass has great impact thanks to the DADS technology borrowed from its higher-end siblings. The ATH-A900 is similar to the higher Audio Technicas in house sound, however the ATH-W2002, and ATH-W1000 are a significant step up. The A900s have good isolation, that is superior to its wooden brothers.

  • Summary: The A900s were the first full-size headphone I purchased after discovering Head-Fi. Since then I’ve heard a lot of other headphones so my ear has blossomed and perspective evolved. That being said this review is posted and written with my experienced ear. I owned the A900s for about two years. Within that time I primarily used them with my Sony D-555 and Rio Karma, but towards the end before I sold them I heard them with my E5 amped by the Raptor, MPX3 and the EC2A3.

  • Summary: Mid-range occasionally exhibits some odd coloration. Heavy headphone, can become uncomfortable if you dont hold your head straight. I find them uncomfortable with glasses.
