Audio-Technica ATH-AD900X Review
20 March 2015
Excerpt: Audio-Technica's ATH-AD900X sits on the mid to upper end of their performance line. It is meant for those on a budget who are still serious about audio quality. I would consider them a second step up on the audiophile upgrade list.
Summary: The biggest thing people seem to knock these 'phones for is "lack of bass." I wouldn't say they have a lack of bass, the bass is just more balanced with the mids and can sometimes be drown out by the highs.
Pros: Beautiful, crisp highs, well defined mids, fairly large sound-stage. Great for listening to acoustic guitar, vocally driven music, or anything with precise instrumentation. Pretty good fit and finish. I would have hoped for less plastic for this price range, but at least it seems like sturdy plas...
Cons: They aren't as comfortable as they could be, that's where they loose one egg. They want to sit on my head (which is probably larger than most; I wear a 60cm hat for reference) in a position that doesn't provide optimal acoustics. I find myself adjusting them fairly often. I wear glasses while usi...
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...
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.
Summary: Coming from the ATH-M50X, headphones I have since returned after putting these on, the AD900X I have found to be the perfect set of open-back headphones under the $200 bracket for me. I listen for the most part to 70s rock, in particular female-led songs.
Fantastic product. The mids on these cans are excellent ...

Summary: Fantastic product. The mids on these cans are excellent and well detailed. These headphones have a very open soundstage as well. The bass, while a little weak, was what I expected from these phones.
Great sound, fit takes some getting use to, note about shipping

Summary: This is exactly what I wanted and expected. The primary reason I chose these is because the price is actually comparable to the American one. When doing research online for a new headphone there were dozens of possibilities around the $200 range.
