Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 Review

16 December 2009
  • Conclusion: The ATH-W5000 headphones are endowed with exceptional sound characteristics and stylish, cutting-edge design which earns them recognition as some of the best-sounding headphones available today. When compared to rival headphone unit the Sennheiser HD800 , in fact, we found that sonically they held up very well. Moreover, due to the closed back design, ambient noise was dramatically reduced when compared to the HD800.
  • Pros: Clear sound with low distortion, Sturdy build quality, Attractive striped-ebony hardwood earcups, Rugged, red velour-lined storage case
  • Cons: Difficult to fit on your head, Bass response is weak by some standards, No accessories
