  • Summary: Audio-Technica: Headphones for Weirdos. Unnecessarily complicated headbands; midrange skewed in favour of Japanese-schoolgirl sopraninos; bass left crying in a back alley somewhere.
  • Pros: Amazing upper mids & treble; nice soundstage with an 'upfront' slant; great detail without harshness
  • Cons: Steep bass rolloff; lower mids underpowered next to upper mid peak; shallow cups

  • Summary: These headphones were a real disappointment for me: until now, all Audio-Technica products I had reviewed were always a very good value for money, even though not perfect. And the ATH-M50 (which I personally own) are one of my favorite headphones in their price range.
  • Pros: Comfortable and light, Very good high-frequency reproduction, Comfortable, High-frequency range is well defined and never sharp, Very light. You could almost forget you have them on., Well-balanced frequency response, except for the lows, Wide stereo field
  • Cons: Irreplaceable cable and no exchangeable ear cups, Not as good as the, No accessories, Too expensive compared with similar products, Sound is too flat, Lack of low frequencies, A bit too expensive, Cable and ear cup cushions not replaceable, No lows, Very small sound, Lack of dynamics, Cheap look

Audio Technica ATH-AD1000PRM

Gadget Guy
14 August 2011
  • Excerpt: The Audio Technica ATH-AD1000PRM headphones look a little unusual due to the ‘self-adjusting 3D wings’ which are used to support the weight of the phones on the listener’s head. These two little paddles come out from just above the ear cups and conform individually to the shape of your head.
  • Pros: Superb no-compromise sound, Very comfortable to wear

  • Excerpt: В последнее время на страницах разного рода гламурных аудиожурналов появились глубокомысленные рассуждения, авторы которых готовы что угодно обосновать, лишь бы выкрутиться побыстренькому, не напрягаясь с измерениями и привлечением настоящих экспертов.
