  • Summary: The A-T AD900s are a wonderful headphone, especially for the price of ~$230. The lows are very detailed and not boomy at all, however, it doesn't extend terribly deep, though more than many, and the impact is pretty good. Mids are smooth yet detailed, and there aren't any dips or peaks. Highs are exceptional, with no audible drop as the frequency extends to the top. No sibilance is present and cymbals sound very realistic.

  • Summary: So far from these headphones I can notice a very large and great soundstage and instrument seperaration. Complex and well recorded drumming sounds very tight and dynamic. The bass is probably the only low point on these, but it doesnt affect anything in my case cause I like music to sound like it was intended to.

Great Headphone Value

  • Excerpt: I've owned many headphones over the years & at one point in my life, I sold audio gear. These headphones fit over the ear, are very comfortable and have a very open, transparent sound. The bass is detailed, without boom. The critical midrange frequencies are very accurate - voices sound natural. The high frequencies are clear, but not harsh in any way. They are an excellent value and are truly worthy of the word audiophile.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight

  • Summary: History I'm a audiophile wannabee since I was 10 years. Worked in a hifi shop for 12 years and listened to quite a few systems, mainly higher end. I own at the moment a modest set consisting of a Marantz PM17mk2 and Tannoy DM 700 speakers and a Marantz SA11. As I have small children at the moment I do not have much time or chance to listen as much music as I like. One of the reasons is that when they sleep I cannot seriously listen to music as it will wake them up.
  • Pros: Sound, design, no removable cable
  • Cons: no removable cable

  • Summary: New to headphone hobby/obsession, but i am loving it with these bubs!   Just a quickie on the stars: half-star off because it's not really adjustable for head-size unless using a rubberband or shoelace like many others have said.  Quarter-star off because it doesn't have enough bass for my taste.  Quarter-star off because the design is...not pretty.  Sorry if you don't like my taking off a star due to my personal preference.
  • Pros: sound quality, sound stage, comfortability, light weight
  • Cons: not adjustable to fit my head so it slips downwards a bit, as many others have reported

  • Summary: Today I went into my local headphone store with a mission to find a set of headphones to pair with my iBasso DX50. I had been running with a pair of UE6000's up until this point but felt I wasnt getting as much as I should be from my DAP so I took it in to find something it played well with. These were the first pair that the helpful chap behind the counter suggested to me when I told him the range of music I listen to.
  • Pros: Beautiful sound, solid design
  • Cons: Un-boxing is a little anti-climactic, Felt a little loose until rubber band mod, No removable Cable

  • Summary: Let me start be addressing the "le no base XD" ... No these cans are definitely not for bass heads by any means (so they could use a bit for for those who mainly listen to things such as dubstep or really bassy rap and what not) but these headphones can definitely produce nice, sharp and clean bass!
  • Pros: Sound stage is super wide, Punchy Bass, Sparkly highs, really detailed!
  • Cons: Without the rubber band mod they're kinda uncomfortable, not for bass heads

  • Summary: Bought these ad900x for resell, cause it was impossible to get them in my country and prices for previous model was around 500$, but after listening them for a while I tempted to leave them for myself:) or buy 1000 model. So... the sound is great and clear, trebles are magical, mids are good and stright forward, soundstage is decent. Actually I'm even listening crystal method with them, bass is lacking thorough. Yeah, the only minus is the bass.
  • Pros: Sound quality, comfort
  • Cons: Cord, plastic, bass quantity
