Audio-Technica ATH-AD900

Sound & Vision Magazine

  • Excerpt: YOU’LL NEVER BE TEMPTED to take this headphone on the bus. The earpieces of Audio-Technica’s ATH-AD900 are huge, measuring about 4.5 inches in diameter and concealing a big 53mm driver. Unlike almost all other headphones, the ATH-AD900 does not have an adjustable band.

  • Summary: This review is written from the perspective of the Ad900 stock, no external amp or DAC to give readers an idea of what to expect if they buy these without an amp/DAC. I would also like to preface this by stating I will be comparing these to the Ad700 often as they are the next logical step in the Ad...

  • Summary: I'll start of with the physical aspects.  The headphones have a magnesium and plastic construction and feel light but well built.  The 1/8 to 1/4" TRS adaptor is nicer than most and the cable is good (thick, no memory, strain relieved etc.) but single entry which I don't care for.
  • Pros: Detail, soundstage, build quality, comfort, weight
  • Cons: Bass quantity

  • Summary: These are great headphones for quite a budget price (at least in Japan and America).  I also own the AD2000 and the W1000X so here is a little comparison:   The W1000X would be the warmest sounding of the bunch.
  • Pros: price to value, airy sound, comfort
  • Cons: bass, slightly muddy

  • Summary: I've been a lurker for a long time, but now that I've got some more money and better cans, I thought I'd write a review of the AD900s.   I upgunned to the AD900s from my AD700s and an HD 555 modded to HD 595, so my review will be based on that comparison.
  • Pros: Price to Value. Soundstage.
  • Cons: Comfort is picky.

  • Summary: The AD900 is well known for its patent Audio Technica house sound; emphasizing light, airy highs. Separation of instruments is fantastic, but occasionally can cause the soundstage to sound artificially big.
  • Pros: Comfort, detail, soundstage/air, price, easily driven
  • Cons: Bass impact not for everyone

  • Summary: This is my first review so forgive me if I make any mistakes. Everything below will be in my humble opinion. I don't have good amp to drive them either, but most people agree that these cans do not need an amp to drive.
  • Pros: soundstage, instrument separation, bass quality
  • Cons: ear touches speaker = uncomfortable, bass quantity, back of concert hall

  • Summary: This is the summary from my full review: For around $300 you'll have a very hard time finding a better pair of headphones in terms of accuracy, staging and comfort. I regularly wear these headphones all day (literally) and actually miss them when I take them off because they are SO comfortable.
  • Pros: Comfort +++ and great detailed sound - all day listening
  • Cons: Slightly light on the bass
