  • Summary: I have these, driven by a Ratoc mid-fi DAC/Amp (50.000 Yen), listening to FLAC 24/96 or upscaled 12/44. I can compare them to the W1000X which I also purchased recently, to the AD900 and to the AD700. Most of my impressions AD900 are the review for those cans.
  • Pros: Clarity, speed, overall tightness
  • Cons: slightly tight clamp

  • Summary: When a headphone manufacturer releases a flagship, one would expect uncompromising sound quality, exceptional design and extreme comfort. As Audio Technica's current open circumaural top of the range model, the AD2000 comes off as a mixed bag.
  • Pros: Outstanding soul-stirring midrange, open and airy presentation, tight and fast bass, easily driven
  • Cons: Light on bass, slight treble roll off, soundstaging problems with many instruments, might be uncomfortable
