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.
Summary: DAY One: I was unimpressed. (let them play) DAY Three: I'll send them back tomorrow. (let them play) Day Five: Forgot to send them back. (let them play) Night SEVEN: I fell asleep in them. (let them play) Week Two: I'm trying to find fault? (let them play) Week Three: Finally, I found fault – There are no East-West adjustments!!! (you can adjust up-down, and slightly rotate) Poor recordings –sound poor! –use your equalizer- Good recordings -sound good!! -eq.
Summary: These are arguably the best headphones around the $100 range. They have great sound although not heavy enough bass for some people. Their incredible soundstage allows for positional accuracy akin to surround sound setups. It allows great immersion and can give the upper hand in games.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound
Summary: I wanted to give headphones as a gift for my father who lives 2,000 miles away. I read the other user reviews on these that said how comfortable they were, so I ordered them and had them sent directly to Dad. He's absolutely satisfied -- says they're not adjustable, but it's as if they were made for his head, he says. Perfect. I ordered an extension cable, but he's says the cord length is more than adequate, so doesn't use it.
Summary: With this things you hear everything,has an amazing soundstage.In MW2 it feels live, like a true warzone. it has a great bass not to punchy to drown the highs which is great in gaming because you have to hear everything and with pinpoint accuracy and this headphones do that easily.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
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: 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. Classical, orchestra, strings sound really well on these cans.
In short, if you are looking for a comfortable and sub $200 headphones, the AD700 would be on top of the list.
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
