  • 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.

One of the current in-production best!

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: My primary cans - visit for more info on these.
  • Pros: Highly resolving cans that will reveal everything down to the very miniscule detail of an album. Very professional looking with high quality wood cups. Surprisingly open with a huge soundstage for a closed headphone - ideal for orchestral genres. Midrange is also very smooth making it a good cand...
  • Cons: Will require solid amplification to make them sing @ their best. Do not purchase these if you don't plan on shelling out on a decent headphone amp! Potential fit issues will arise if you have a small head - can be resolved by bending the metal rings connecting both cups. It can sound harsh if pai...

Awesome headphones, beware of fit

Peter J., Newegg

  • Summary: This is one of the two best current-production closed headphones on Earth (the other being the Stax 4070). Just be glad that you can buy it through newegg rather than importing it from Japan.
  • Pros: Very high resolution Excellent 3-d soundfield positioning and size, especially for a closed headphone Very efficient and can handle very high volumes without trouble Super sexy looking!
  • Cons: Earcups have limited swivel from the headband, which means that these headphones may not fit you properly. Quite a few folks have tried my pair only to have the headphones not seal at the top or bottom of the head. It's hard to tell if they will fit without first trying them. Generally those with...

  • Excerpt: Отличные наушники. Много воздуха. Шикарный бас. высокие безупречно чисты и разборчивы. Слышно каждую струну бас-гитары. Посадка безупречна. Наушники не чувствуются на голове. Сцена настолько широка - кажется ты не в наушниках слушаешь музыку, а в помещении.
  • Pros: Широкая сцена. Кристально чистые высокие. Ненавязчивый звук. Нет "крикливости" Сидят идеально, наушники не ощущаются на голове
  • Cons: Возможно, при большом кол-ве инструментов, легкая неразбериха в среднем диапазоне. Шумоизоляции практически никакой. Звук похож на открытые наушники (это наверное плюс). но предыдущие SONY 7509HD имели звукоизоляцию на 5+

  • Excerpt: Звание топовой модели W5000 оправдывает. У нее свой особенный почерк. Для кого-то перечисленные мною недостатки могут оказаться фатальными, а для кого-то совсем не будут иметь значения, ибо они будут покорены честностью и реализмом звука.
  • Pros: Вовлекающий, эмоциональный звук. Шикарная детальность по всему спектру, которая не акцентирует на себя излишнее внимание, давая насладится сутью музыки. Вокал и живые инструменты - сильная сторона этой модели. Она располагает к долгому, комфортному прослушиванию. Комфортная конструкция (если отре...
  • Cons: Малое количество нижнего баса (ниже 60 Hz). Резковатая середина на повышенной громкости (на некоторых записях) - этот эффект можно уменьшить подбором правильного усилителя и/или источника, не акцентирующих СЧ. Не самая удобная конструкция оголовья - по умолчанию наушники плохо прилегают к ушам ве...
