Summary: The Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 headphones are worth every penny I paid for them at Newegg. I will continue to use them daily for months to come.
It is however possible that those of you with smaller hat sizes might find them a bit loose fitting. I found them extremely comfortable (I wear a 7 7/8 hat) for long gaming sessions and the ATH-AD700 headphones are a great standard to use when judging the performance and comfort of other open headsets and headphones.
Summary: With our recent wired and wireless headset reviews, we picked up a pair of ATH-AD700 Headphones to compare to at the urging of our readers. Today we give you a review of what is likely one of the best values in wired headphones in the world. If you are thinking of purchasing soon, you owe it to yourself to read this review.
Summary: The ATH-AD700s strike me as a jack of all trades. They handle everything from classical music to games with such proficiency that it is simply scaring. For $100 these headphones are an absolute steal, if you are looking for a great set of open back all around cans these would be my top pick. The fact that they can be run straight out of a normal sound card is a welcome change because it means that you can use them for gaming as well as listening to music.
Pros: Competitively priced, Sound stage!!, Ergonomics, Durable, Can be driven by a normal sound card, Superb gaming performance, Smooth sounding
Summary: So, in the final analysis, what did I think of
the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700s? Well, as I’m writing this I’m using them to
listen to the DVD-A of the Eric Clapton and B.B. King’s
Riding with the King
[Reprise 9 47612-9]. The bass is deep, the vocals are clear and reasonably precise, the
guitars sear, and the treble manages to convey the essence of the high frequencies.
