  • Summary: I am using these headphones with the Audio-Technica amplifier that they built for this headphone, the AT-HA5000. My review needs to be understood as being influenced by that amplifier. The AT-W5000 is a beautiful sounding headphone when powered by this amplifier.

  • Summary: After a year of listening to the Sony MDR-SA5000 almost exclusively, a headphone finally came along tempting enough to challenge it. Also a Japanese top-production-model, one has to wonder if the model-number for this headphone was designed to take a shot across Sony's bow. The result?

  • Summary: This is what my setup looks like: Lavry DA10-->W5000 (I'm using the Lavry's headphone amp) 1) Bass extension: Very good, I didn't feel like I missed anything in the bass region.

  • Summary: The W5000 has ebony cups, leather ear pads, and a satin lined hard case - the opening arguments in an overall convincing product. These are luxury headphones that try for a sound that's "just right." Fans of bass boost or squeaky treble can apply elsewhere.

  • Summary: Like all headphones, this one too has a distinct sound, ie. it is not neutral. I find the W5000 to be the right balance between warm and neutral. The soundstage is very large, and all the details are present.
