Conclusion: While the ATH-FC700 headphones from Audio-Technica do offer some benefits, let’s be realistic. Drawbacks like clumsy design and aggressive high-frequency performance are enough to give us pause when considering a recommendation.
Pros: Impressive Bass; compact; good sound isolation; stylish choice of colors
Excerpt: The Good Lightweight. Attractive. Multiple colors. Extension audio cable included. Case included. The Bad Ear cups have tight grip; uncomfortable after a while. May get warm after extended use.
Excerpt: Comfort is a major factor in any headphone purchase, especially if you will be using them for long listening sessions. And after listening to these for quite a few hours, I can say that the comfort with the ATH-FC700A headphones is superb.
Pros: Excellent sound clarity, Compact folding design, lightweight, comfortable on the ears.
Cons: Y-cable design rather than single wire, a bit higher priced than other headphone choices.
