  • Summary: Comparison Review: ATH-A900X, AKG K550 Two years ago, when I was looking to upgrade my aging ATH-A9X, I came across the AKG K550 and the ATH-A900X, both then newly-released, with several head-fiers reporting that they are tonally-similar headphones.
  • Pros: Detailed, sparkly treble. Warm, sweet mids. Good soundstage and imaging.
  • Cons: Mid-bass bloat. Bass isn't particularly tight and extension isn't great (not much sub-bass). Treble is noticeably grainy compared to K550.

  • Summary: PLEASE NOTE: (1) This reviewer rates headphones relative to the price paid. 5 stars at £1000, in other words, will not be directly comparable with 5/5 at £100. Unless, that is, it's specifically stated to the contrary, my ratings are given strictly relative to other headphones in the item's...
  • Pros: If You've a Large Size head, Then These Will Fit Well. Outstanding Sound Clarity - Unquestionably Better Than the Popular ATHM50S. V Comfortable.
  • Cons: Definitely Avoid these if your head size is Medium or below. Due to Design, They will only fit you well if you head size is Large or Extra Large!

  • Summary: These headphones generally are excellent. They possess this remarkable mixture of openness and intimacy at the same time. There’s a true sense of soundstage, with a good width and depth and still they manage to sound pretty direct, upfront and dynamic.
  • Pros: Big, slight warm, dynamically fluid and textured sound
  • Cons: Dryish texture can become grating

  • Summary: Sound Treble: The treble is awesome. The high notes aren't sharp or sibilant, they just sound effortless. Mid-Range: The midrange is a strong part of the A900Xs. Male and Female vocals sound warm and rich, but don't overpower the treble or the bass. Bass: The bass is tight and controlled.
  • Pros: Huge Soundstage! Great Detail, Clarity, Imaging, and Instrument Seperation. Very Balanced!
  • Cons: Some may not like the fit, others (such as me) find these some of the most comfortable headphones.

  • Summary: I owned the original A900 for many years, it was a fantastic headphone. After it was stolen I ordered the A900X from AudioCubes in Japan, slightly nervous because I'd read of problems with the new 3D wing system.
  • Pros: (none)
  • Cons: Ineffective 3D wing support system means they're not suitable even for home use

  • Summary: I do not have a large head, nor an obscure shaped one. What I can tell you is that they are by far the best sounding headphone you will get at $99. They are genre plastic, and do well with many types of genres.
  • Pros: Over Ear, Little Clamp, Quality for the price
  • Cons: Little Clamp (For some oddballs :P), Pleathery pads, Wing system

  • Summary: Hello everybody! So just like last time im gonna start with where to buy these headphones. They can be bought for $160usd and a whooping $326cad on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca respectively. I didn’t buy these from any of those sites though.
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality for the price. Extremely comfortable.
  • Cons: "Wing" design system. Very long cable.

  • Summary: Audio-Technica's open headphones are known to gamers for the wearing comfort and huge soundstage that these provide, but the open back models simply lack bass and isolation. Today, we will see if a pricey pair of the company's closed back audiophile headphones can offer the compromise many of you...
