Summary: One of my regret back in 2012 was not being able to secure a pair of W3000ANV when it launched. Luckily I was able to pick up a second hand pair in excellent condition lately.
W3000ANV is one of the many products Audio Technica made in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.
Pros: Lush, inviting euphonic sound with great PRaT
Cons: Not the most technically capiable, not neutral
Summary: I’ve always been curious about the Audio-Technica woodies, and recently had the opportunity to spend some time with the latest one, the W3000ANV, thanks to an audiophile friend in Brazil.
I’m slightly on the fence here.
Pros: Incredibly seductive and euphonic sound, luxurious look and feel
Cons: Not the last word in comfort, small differentiation to other AT products, slightly genre-selective
Summary: This is my first review I've ever done on Head-Fi so please go easy on me.
Setup: FLAC > Foobar2000 > Burson Audio HA-160D > ATH-W3000ANV
When the ATH-W3000ANV was first announced, I was very hyped for it, knowing the reputation of AT and how good the mid on their woodies are.
Pros: Intimate sound; Great clarity; Non-linear soundstage; Good looking; Uniquely coloured sound; Great for vocals and classical.
Cons: Hefty price tag; Bass is inadequate compared to other similarly priced models; Average soundstage width/height.
Summary: There are only 2000 pieces of this anniversary version, unfortunately, people doesn't know how to read Japanese which makes it harder to order from a Japanese web site. Advantage LOL
Value: You have elegance, exclusivity, classiness, pristine musical reproduction with a hefty price of course.
Pros: Amazing frequency response, clarity, best for acoustics, classic design
Excerpt: You know a headphone is expensive when it has a serial number. Audio-Technica’s ATH-W3000ANV headphone review sample was #1505 (the MSRP for the headphone is $1,299.95, though street pricing may be considerably lower).

Conclusion: Протестированные сегодня наушники Audio-Technica ATH-W3000ANV, выпущенные лимитированной серией, нам очень понравились. Качество звучания ожидаемо находится на очень высоком уровне, а для изготовления отдельных элементов использованы самые нестандартные материалы.
