Reviews and Problems with Audio-Technica ATH-AD700
Showing 1-10 of 13
24 July 2010
The headpiece is a pair of thinly padded pieces of molded plastic that rest on the head, attached to the cans' rotating mount via a spring-loaded piece of plastic. This is, from what i have seen, somewhat of a signature for Audio Technica, and it works well enough.
Pros: Vast soundstage, Very clear sounding. Cable and headphone feel solid. Lightweight
Cons: Some say the bass is lacking. Cable is long, and has strong cable memory.
Summary: So I want to start off by stating that is this is my first real review of any headphone on this website. I am not an audiophile by any stretch of your imagination! I will try to best explain what my opinions are in as clear of a description as possible. Enjoy!
Summary: These headphones are great but you will need to be willing to EQ them to get best most natural sound.
Itself they're ok but a bit on the bright side.
See measured response below. I've posted the correction here:
Summary: This is my first pair of hifi cans so I don't really have anything to compare them to. It was a nice deal, I love the sound quality -especially when paired with a fiio e10, the e10's bass boost fixes the weak bass problem.
Pros: Super comfy, easily modable, no fatigue from 7 hours of listening.
Summary: I've had these for 2 1/2 years now, and have been very happy. They replaced my Sennheiser 570, which are also very good, but not as clear as these. The AD700 is also better than the low-end Stax that I used to use.
Pros: Clean, clear sound, good dynamics and imaging
Cons: Really big, slight brightness on some recordings
Summary: This is my first ever headphone that I have and I really like it. I would highly recommend it as an entry level headphones. For the amount you pay for, you cannot complain anymore.
The sound is crisp and clear. Just that the bass is weak and certain genres of music are not very suitable.
Summary: So comfortable. Hours of enjoyment with no pressure points.
Make no mistake, if you can buy these in the $70 range ('used' means they are just starting to break in, hopefully they didn't like the fit) you won't regret it.
Summary: I bought these instead of the ATH M50, and i'm glad I did. I listened to the M50s and wasn't too impressed. After reading reviews I opted for the AD700s.
Look and build quality.
They look kinda dorky, no other way to say it. But good headphones aren't about looks.
Pros: Very comfortable, good sound stage, neutral with slight emphasis on Hi's and Mid's
Cons: Bass can be lacking, Mid's can get a little muddled
Summary: I've owned a long string of very cheap headphones (bose earbuds fall in this category because of how bassy they are, and the plug falling apart) so i started to upgrade my sound system. Headphones first.
Summary: This is usually my recommendation for newbies looking for open shells in this price range. They are easy to drive, with excellent imaging and good detail, reasonably neutral reproduction and they are, simply put, THE most comfortable headphones on the planet (the only disclaimer being that the two...
