  • Summary: I used these headphones at home and need isolation to keep from bothering my wife. The A-900s are very large, but very comfy, and sound very good. Unfortunately, they are only available from 1-2 vendors, and technically do not come with a warranty from A-C. The phones have strong, deep bass with good detail, great soundstage, and high high's. The mids are bit recessed though. The isolation is very good and the comfort is quite high.

  • 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. The mids are somewhat honky and lifeless, but this is overall a very fun headphone for use with all different types of music.

  • Excerpt: (I wrote this review back in 2006, but it still for the most part stands, the detail text following the scores above are my current opinions on the set.) Design: As far as looks go, Audio Technica has apparently always had very unique looking and intersting headphones. While the a900's are on...

  • Excerpt: I bought these in around 2004 from www.audiocubes.com and at the time they were very well received on headphone sites like www.head-fi.org. After doing much research I decided on these bad boys. My initial impressions were that they were HUGE (which they are) and very comfortable. I...

  • 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. One reason people recable headphones is to get the grounds separate. This is not required for the A900LTD.

  • 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. This big headphone doesn't provide a good isolation. Hearing a mono pink noise may produce a hi-mid phasing because of the leaks from one hear to another.

  • Summary: These are very comfortable headphones that are easy to wear for extended periods. Bass reproduction is strong and excellent, without the boominess sometimes associated with closed 'phones. Despite much talk of "recessed midrange" with this model, I have found the biggest problem to be a definite rolloff in the upper frequencies. This becomes apparent when listening to music incorporating high-hat cymbals or other high-frequency percussive instruments.

  • Summary: I've owned this headphone for about one month. It's sound is colored, but it gives the headphone warmth and is very pleasant to listen to. The sound is different from A1000 and more like other old ATH headphones.
