    Audio-Technica ATH-M70x reviews

    ATH-M70x Pro Monitor Headphones is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neutral & Revealing so I was looking for a sealed unit to use in noisy rooms and on flights, realize that these are not specifically built for air-travel. I listen to a mix of classical, rock, metal, world (Kodo, Tuvan, etc) and was looking for a good unit. I have used this for a couple of weeks now. I find that the headphone is very revealing, badly recorded tracks sound BADLY RECORDED. Quite fast (might give up a smidgen to open back units such as the HD650). The low frequency notes are well defined but this does not pound your head; I was looking for quality over quantity, so, no complaints. Oh, its a tad heavy (does not bother me)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a superior product at a very reasonable price. The build quality, fit and finish are excellent. The headphones can be worn for long periods of time with no discomfort. There is good tonal balance across the spectrum; bass strings, guitar strings, vocals and percussive instruments come through clearly in the mix. String attack and decay transients are clearly and cleanly discernible. Clarity and detail are superb, the strongest feature of these phones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Professional Headphone I work in a lot of different sound studios (30 years a film sound mixer) and am used to a variety of headphones, but I bought these for my home studio. Great detail. Flat for the most part but with a tendency to brightness. I did some music mixes for a film, and then mixed the film itself using the headphones. My preference for final mixing is speakers obviously and then probably open back headphones, but I thought I'd see what these babies could do, and listen on speakers later. The music I referenced on my home studio Dynaudios before taking the mix into a professional studio for a final. In both cases (the music and the film), I had a tendency to mix the vocals and the dialogue a little too hot, but aside from that the balance of the other elements was pretty good. I would not rely on them in a final mix situation but you can get a fair way into premixing with no problem. I would use speakers after that or open back headphones. Comfort wise they're great. Being female I got a little bit of discomfort behind my ears but only after a few days of longish hours. That's pretty darn good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Headphones/ Great I've been using audio-technica products for the past 8 years since I was 16. The M70s are the latest edition to the family since owning M50s. I must say they are way more accurate in every way and perfect mixing audio which I've been doing professionally for the past 3 years. These headphones have a great stereo image every sound in a mix is isolated and you can hear clearly. It really opens up songs you've grown up with, and you hear many different elements that were hidden. For example the random percussion in a lot of songs and actually being able to count how many stacks some of my favorite singers use. I'd say for a practical application of mixing your projects these are phenomenal. A lot of the guesswork that came with transferring mixes have been extremely reduced. Also using it as reference for professional songs made me realize all the extra elements they have to get the right groove and ambience for my own productions. The differences between the M50s and M70s are surprisingly huge. Like with the M50 you can really FEEL the bass but you're losing a good amount of midrange and stereo image compared to the M70s. With the M70s you can still feel the bass (not like the boom of the M70s) but can also hear it much clearer with all intricacies such as playing technique or for synthetic actually hear the volume dynamics, without sacrificing the very important midrange. Another thing is the M70s don't like to you with your mix if it sounds bad and crunchy in these it really will sound bad everywhere. Often times with the M50s it would just sound good then when it was time to send off the finished product I'd hear minor complaints that had to be revised. So far since the M70s I haven't been asked for any revisions. In conclusion, I would recommend these headphones for any producer who is looking to take their productions to another level especially if you don't have a room large enough or due to noise constraints can't use studio monitors. I would also recommend these headphones to mix engineers who need a good reference headphone for translating mixes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product with absolutely no flaws The comfort was really quite nice with it's soft yet not overheating earpads. The build quality was also really solid, though I don't suggest putting it under durability tests. The sound was what I loved the most. The sound was perfectly balanced, which I like more than those bass heavy signatures from things like the M50x. I don't have a problem with bass-heavy sound signatures, and that said the M50x was good in its own regard, but the M70x has done pretty much everything perfectly, and I can't find a single thing to complain about.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I've replaced some ATH-M50's with this model after one ear cut out in the old ones. On a stereo mastered mix. Very good bass response and balanced highs. The power response is great without a headphone amp. Beware of very loud tracks (ala loudness wars) as it accentuates the highs in a way that can be ear fatiguing at normal volumes. While the M50's are known for their bass response, these have a character (to me) very much like the ADAM monitors which focus on mid/high clarity. In isolation I feel like I can really carve into low end sound design with confidence. A very solid monitor headphone for sure! Super comfortable for long wear sessions. Note: these do not collapse in the same way the M50's / Sony 7606's do. They fold flat and go into a nice cover / case which also has room for the included cables and their bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes ! Finally found headphones that equal my Genelec monitors

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flat at first, after some burn-in wonderful on detail It's not until recently that I care about the quality of the sound I listen to: first got to FLAC from MP3, then learned equalizing, and now wanted something to get the best sound from my Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone plus Boeffla Kernel (don't be fooled, killer mix for high impedance headphones). I tested some headphones on the store and these surprised me for their great detail and accuracy. I was looking for something that exchanged bass and color for clearness and autenticity and these were exactly that. When I tested them back at home I was worried at first about the lack of bass and the extremely annoying high frequencies, many of the music I have sounded with too treble and was disgusting. I was thinking about taking them back, until I equalized them to my taste, and then played Brahms / Tchaikovsky, Violin Concertos: Heifetz, Chicago Symphony, Reiner. The experience was something memorable, gorgeous, and after finishing the disk I could listen to any other kind of good quality music without even touching the equalizer. TL;DR these earphones can seem bass-less and with too much treble at first, but if you can throw some good quality music at it and let your brain get used to them for some hours, you will discover a wonderful world of detail in the sound.
