Summary: Yup, it's purple, and beige. It also has wings! Well those are for comfort; and homie, they are comfortable. When I received the Audio Technica AD700's, I chuckled a bit when I plugged it into my receiver for a movies/games test. I was thinking...these couldn't sound better than my Beyerdynamic DT770 pros, could they? LOL, yeah right. The colorful alien from Japan just vaporized my Beyers. Sold the Beyers.
Summary: Comfort & Fit
The AD700X are reasonably comfortable. How comfortable they are and how well they fit depends entirely on the size and shape of your head. They are not made for something with a small head and they don't have an adjustable headband to account for different head sizes, although the 3D wings are flexible so it does have some head room (heh heh...) for fit.
The ear cups are quite large. They will fit around fairly large ears easily.
Pros: Very detailed sound. Great soundstage. Great separation. Good build.
Cons: Light bass. Sounds a little cold. Comfort depends on head size/shape and your ears can rub against the drivers.

Summary: With Over 88% of user headphone ratings scoring the ATH-AD700 positively (score of 4 or 5 based on a 5 point scale of 110 user headphone reviews) and not a single professional reviwer giving it less than a 8/10 (based on 5 reviews), you know these Audio Technica's are worth their weght in gold.
provides great sound for you, not so much for those around you.

Summary: lets see where to begin. certainly the most comfortable pair of headsets i have ever had. however that comes at a cost, as mentioned in cons it leaks sound. not just on the higher volumes either, if you can hear the sound, the people next to you can hear it also. the headset is also very large compared to others . this is good news for some, but if you have a small head, be aware. also comes with a good long cord.
Pros: sound quality, comfort, good sturdy cord.
Cons: leaks sound like crazy, not a headset for public use.
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!
These are my first pair of open backed headphones. My intention for these headphones was for gaming. They are my go to gaming headphones for CS:GO.
Summary: To start, this is my first set of audio-technicas, and I generally listen to towers. So some of my expectations may need to be tempered, but I have also used my other set of headphones (Bose QC 15's) as a frame of reference. Also note, this is all with my PC sound card as a source. No USB / no amp. And I generally use tidalhifi as my audio source.
Sound - The mids are spot on here. Especially lower mids. Detail is great.
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. The purple/ pink outer mesh is an odd shade but distinctive, you'll never confuse these with another pair. The pads are comfy and very large, large enough to encompass my whole ear, which is good.
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 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. I'm driving them through an older Arcam 45-watt integrated amp with no problems - volume control is barely above the minimum for a decent listening level.
Dynamics and imaging are very good. Bass is normal, not overemphasized.
Pros: Clean, clear sound, good dynamics and imaging
Cons: Really big, slight brightness on some recordings
Summary: this is a good beginer hifi setup
nice bas and high treble with clean sound
don't get me wrong they sound grate
all in all I would recomined them to anyone on a buget
the only con is that it has funnky coloers
