Audio-Technica Audio Technica ATHW1000X Hi-Fi Headphones : very good if slightly odd

Gorgeous headphones, extremely cozy and sound superb by a respectable headphone amp.

I bought these mainly because i experienced fancied them for some time and found a pair on amazon at a genuinely terrific cost. The seem is fantastic – not up to the high-quality of my £650 grados but very even and uncoloured. Working with them and a dragonfly has remodeled my laptop or computer centered mp3 listening. Only beefs – the wooden is so highly polished it appears to be like a little bit plasticky, and the arrangement for fitting to yor head is successful but a bit heath robinsonish.

I ordered these as a substitution for a pair of of ath-es88 headphones i’d experienced but acquired broken. As i would owned audio technica headphones in the past i might witnessed these and had been incredibly desirable but also incredibly,incredibly costly and it was also impossible to find a dealer who really stocked them. Even so, these suddenly have been readily available at a more realistic £265 or so. I resolved to give them a punt. These have been supplied from a german retailer and were a tiny bit slower arriving than normal. On arrival the packaging was a little krypton variable but i was equipped to retreive them without having way too a great deal issue. The to start with factor you notice about them is the sizing. These cans are massive and you are not just going to blend into the background with these. Nonetheless they are also really lightweight, considerably much more so than my hallowed grado sr325e. Placing them on my head also uncovered the actuality there are for me exceptionally comfortable.

I own a number of major close headphones (t1, k812, gs1000i, hd800, th900 and so forth) and these are my favourite closed back design. I do not believe that that there is a ‘best’ best-close headphone, but they do all seem various. The trick is discovering the 1 you like the best for your listening habbits. Never read through the evaluations, these are just fellas and girls permitting you know what they like the audio of ideal, go out to a decent hifi store and try out them 1st. Also matching the headphone to the amp is yet another make a difference of obtaining the one particular that offers you the seem you like. I use the graham slee ulde, fostex hp-a8 and spl’s phonitor 2. But as usually, you are inclined to imagine there is a better sounding answer out there if only you could discover it. Also any headphone in excess of the £300 (listing) cost is heading to be really superior. Getting a top rated-conclusion headphone is only heading to give compact incremental advantages oiver these £300 versions.

Beautiful headphones, extremely comfortable and sound fantastic through a decent headphone amp.
I purchased these as a replacement for a pair of of ath-es88 headphones i’d had but got broken. As i’d owned audio technica headphones in the past i’d seen these and were very desirable but also very,very expensive and it was also impossible to find a dealer who actually stocked them. However, these suddenly were available at a more reasonable £265 or so. I decided to give them a punt. These were supplied from a german retailer and were a little bit slower arriving than usual. On arrival the packaging was a little krypton factor but i was able to retreive them without too much problem. The first thing you notice about them is the size. These cans are big and you are not exactly going to blend into the background with these. However they are also very lightweight, considerably more so than my hallowed grado sr325e. Placing them on my head also revealed the fact there are for me exceptionally comfortable.

I own a number of top end headphones (t1, k812, gs1000i, hd800, th900 etc) and these are my favorite closed back model. I do not believe that there is a “best” top-end headphone, but they do all sound different. The trick is finding the one you like the best for your listening habbits. Don’t read the reviews, these are just guys and girls letting you know what they like the sound of best, go out to a decent hifi store and try them first. Also matching the headphone to the amp is another matter of finding the one that gives you the sound you like. I use the graham slee ulde, fostex hp-a8 and spl’s phonitor 2. But as always, you tend to believe there is a better sounding solution out there if only you could find it. Also any headphone over the £300 (list) price is going to be very good. Having a top-end headphone is only going to give small incremental benefits oiver these £300 models.

Wow, these are truly beautiful and high quality headphones. From the highly polished wood ear cup enclosures to the plush leather finish ear cup padding, they make for a comfortable fit. Importantly, the sound quality is outstanding, though to get the best you need to power these through a dedicated headphone amp, i currently use the fiio e09k desktop amp which does a very good job. The soundstage is very broad with good detailing and separation and overall richness of sound that is a pleasure to experience. I listen to all types of music genres on these, especially dance and all sound superb. A very refined closed back audiophile grade set of headphones that i recommend for anyone looking for a step up in sound quality from basic to mid range headphones.

I bought these because i had fancied them for some time and found a pair on amazon at a truly great price. The sound is excellent – not up to the quality of my £650 grados but very even and uncoloured. Using them and a dragonfly has transformed my computer based mp3 listening. Only beefs – the wood is so highly polished it looks a bit plasticky, and the arrangement for fitting to yor head is effective but a bit heath robinsonish.
