Summary: After reading all the reviews on these cans, I have to say that my heart was jumping out of my chest the day I came home and saw the package on my front door containing my new headphones. The first thing I did when I put them on was listen to Led Zeppelin's Kashmir, a song who's recording quality is still top-notch today, 35 years after it released. The sound blew me away. I could hear the most subtle parts of the song, and each part stands out clear and crisp.
Summary: The headphones had great sound quality. I used them for studio production, mainly electronic and a few hip hop beats, but the build was bad. They are very heavy, which is good if you are going to be mobile with them, but it hurts after awhile. They are not comfortable headphones. My ears were hurting after about an hour of use. If you are not going to be using these headsets for extended sessions, then buy them. But they will hurt after about an hour.
Summary: Note: not an audiophile's review. The sound quality is pretty good, but since I've never owned any ear-covering headphones before, I don't really have a standard to measure against except earbuds and PC speakers. Bass is strong but I personally find I get more and better 'doof-doof' out of my SONY MDR earbuds, which is disappointing to me, as I specifically bought these headphones because of the Power and frequency response capabilities.
Summary: It's sound really great but after i use it for about 3hours, it feels it is getting heavier and i cannot use anymore But i like it because design is good, quality good, exept it is big and heavy
Summary: I have not received these babies yet .They are a replacement for my Sony $50 MDR x300's(xtra Bass)Which were stolen at school (Devry University Philadelphia)along with an 8 gig Sansa Fuse.I bought the exact same MP3 player to replace cause there is really not anything better in the price range that will play FLAC files. I have not heard these but after about 4 1/2-5 hours of research I was convinced these were the best HEADPHONES for my money.
Summary: After much searching on various websites and reading reviews, I finally settled on a pair of the ATH-Pro700 Headphones, namely for the huge price reduction on Amazon. I needed a good set of cans that could handle my Logic Studio software on high volume and faithfully reproduce the music for mastering, as well as simply having a nice set to listen to my iPod with.
Summary: ATH-PRO700SV is definitely a specific function designed product and this function appears to be delivery of a forceful sound in a noisy environment. The low impedance of the HP allows for very high levels of the sound even using portable CD players and such with the currently lowered output levels.
Summary: These are my second pair of studio headphones. My retired pair (because i bought these) were the Sony MDR-V6's and i gotta tell you that these Audio technica Pro700's pretty much blow them away. I've always used Audio Technica's Mic's and Wireless systems but this is my first set of headphones from them and i'm never going back. Ya their alittle tight, only at first they loosen with use. Nice folding design for easy storage (included carry pouch).
Summary: I've had these cans for about a year now and am very pleased with the quality. For the people who reviewed and said they are poorly constructed and will break easily, I believe they were just unlucky and received a poor unit to begin with. I am a college student and carry these in my backpack everyday, and believe it or not, they are still in mint condition. I honestly wear these cans for probably 4-6 hours a day and love them.
