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 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: 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 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: I bought these for computer gaming, but these these headphones are great all around. I used to own sennheisers, but these headphones blow them out of the water. I dug out some clasical music, marches, and music with lots of bass, and these cans are all that and a bag of chips!
Summary: >> Sound:
The ATH-AD900 highlights trebles and mids. The bass stays politely in the background.
The clearness of sound and the amount of details it reproduces even with very small volume is remarkable !!
Summary: I have had the luxury of listening to lots of top level headphones. I have the Audio-Technica ATH-A700 and ATH-AD700, ATH-A900, ATH-AD900, ATH-AD 1000, ATH-AD2000, and ATH-5000; AKG 271, 240, K601, and K701; the Beyerdynamic 770, 880 and 990; Sennheiser 280, 600 and 650; Grado GS-80, GS325i, RS-2,...
Summary: The AD900 were my first set of real cans. Frankly, I think they sound great. They are the most detailed pair of cans I own (also the most expensive, so people reading for truly high hi-falutin' audiophool reviews should go elsewhere, I'm all mid-fi).
Summary: These headphones are awesome! I have spent a while looking for a set of cans that would sound great without an expensive amp, and these are the best I've ever heard. If you are looking for an audiophile open headphone that is easy to drive and puts comparably priced sennheiser's (i.e.
Summary: I'm a sound designer and composer, and bought a pair of these as a monitoring an mixing solution for when I'm out of the studio and need to work. I have to say that I actually look forward to putting these on!
