  • Summary: These phones have largely been ignored because AT did a lousy job of advertising and promoting them. I took a flyer on them hoping that they'd be a great portable for commmuting and use at work. After more than a year with them, I'd gladly make the purchase again.
  • Pros: great bass and better soundstage + midrange than people expect from a $170 phone
  • Cons: no carry case

  • Summary: Got a secondhand WS99. Previous owner got them on (closeout) sale for 110€ and he was selling it for 60€. Just 4 months old. Couldn't resist. First of all...what poor packaging. no case or cover. Just two cables. Both quite short. And pretty cheap looking.
  • Pros: Sound, Bass, Weight, Looks on your head, great close out pricing
  • Cons: Open or closed, Portable or not, Not exactly a premium feel to it in looks, accessories or gimmicks

  • Summary: The impact from the bass does not go directly into your ears,but dances around your ears,so lushy and textured the bass sounds,so much better then my Q40's where i could not follow the basslines like i can on the WS99, i hear things i never heard before,like basslines going from left to right and...
  • Pros: Almost everything the detail,texture of the bass, the looks, standard pads are pretty comfi too...best headphone i own

  • Summary: The WS-99 are Audio-Technica's top of the line headphones in the Solid Bass line- and rightfully so. These headphones are among the best that I've heard. [[SPOILER]] Build - The WS-99 shares a lot of its overall design with the the mid-level WS-77.
  • Pros: Style, sound, soundstage, detachable cables
  • Cons: No carrying pouch

  • Summary: First thing you're going to notice with these cans is, of course, the bass. When properly amp'd, these things almost pop off your head. I haven't heard the JVC sz2000 or the Sony XB1000, but these have the most bass I've experienced so far.
  • Pros: Great low end, very punchy, crisp highs
  • Cons: Mids suffer a bit

  • Summary: Introduction First off, I’d like to thank the folks at Audio-Technica for the sample of the WS99 for review. Here it is, the pinnacle of Audio-Technica’s “Solid Bass” line of portable headphones, the WS99.
  • Pros: Well Defined Bass, Comfortable, Rich Mids, Detachable Cables
  • Cons: The WS77 is Almost as Good for Significantly Less, No Carrying Case

  • Conclusion: An inoffensive pair of cans that need to offer a little more if they’re to stand out from the crowd
  • Pros: Comfortable, Sound has adequate detail
  • Cons: Unremarkable design, Sound needs more subtlety and precision at this price

Test : Audio Technica ATH-WS99

Le Journal du Geek
23 December 2013
  • Conclusion: J’aime : – La bande passante – Les drivers de 53 mm – Le confort – Le son détaillé et riche – La signature plutôt montante – Le câble modulable sur sa longueur – La très grande polyvalence… Les limites : -…mais qui offre un rendu qui manque un peu de charme et de personnalité – Le manque de texture...
