Audio-Technica ATH-R70x overview

  • 1Description

The Audio-Technica ATH-R70x Pro Reference Headphones are a professional grade, open-back reference design that feature specially designed 45mm drivers in acoustically transparent housings fashioned from aluminum honeycomb mesh to provide an accurate and natural open-back sound. The carbon composite resin in the design improves structural rigidity to provide a detailed transient response. High-efficiency magnets with a pure alloy magnetic circuit design helps reduce distortion and ensure an accurate and extended frequency response of 5 to 40,000 Hz.

For comfort, they feature the company's 3D wing support system and breathable fabric earpads. The feather-light design weighs only 210 grams without the cable, and the robust construction of the headphones make them suitable for long-terms studio use. The unique, dual-sided detachable locking cable is L/R signal independent to ensure proper stereo orientation. The headphones come with a protective carrying pouch.

    Audio-Technica ATH-R70x reviews

    ATH-R70x Pro Reference Headphones is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed and transparent reference headphones I have been using the Audio-Technica ATH-R70x headphones for a couple of weeks now and I find them to be very comfortable to wear for up to an hour and to give a very transparent sound. I typically use these headphones to listen to my live recordings of a local church choir or organ recital, where in some cases I have recordings from two performances and thus have to select the best recording. I am hearing parts of my recordings, both purchased and my own, that I have not heard before (including quite coughs, babies talking, page turns, etc.). I would unequivocally recommend these headphones as good value for the money spent and for their intend use..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent piece of gear I brought these home, put on one of my tracks and half way through had to check if my Adam A7x Monitors were on or off, it sounds that good. I actually thought the Adams had to be on in the background. I can see these being my new go to cans. I just shelved my AKG712's

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound at a reasonable price point. Excellent value. This open back headphone produces spacious and detailed sound with solid and none intrusive base. It is better than I expected at this price point.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite headphone in my collection I have had the R70x for about six months now, so definitely past the honeymoon period (audiophile wise). That is the primary reason for holding off on a review until now. It is very easy to get excited over a new product and write a gushing review; been guilty of that myself. This headphone's main strength is a neutral, yet non-fatiguing presentation. Bass is relatively flat, but has the ability to punch when called for IF properly driven. I usually drive these with a Schiit Valhalla OTL tube amp as it mates well with the 470 ohm impedance. They do want power, but I usually listen at somewhat louder ( I'd like to say realistic) levels. Neutral midrange with neither too forward or distant vocals. Upper treble might be somewhat rolled off, especially compared to my Beyerdynamic DT1770, DT1350 cans, but those tend to be brighter (and fatigue sooner). I feel the soundstage is very good and has some airiness to it. Not as wide as the now gone AKG Q701, but better in all other aspects. I did feel the stock pads were a tad small and just a little rough. I have replaced them with the Shure 1540 alcantara pads. More comfy with minimal change in sound signature. They are the most comfortable headphone I have had. I fiddle less with the fit than all previous cans. I've gone through many headphones in the past few years ( much to my wife's chagrin). But this one might finally be a keeper. In fact, it's the first can I've thought about buying again for a backup, but as soon as I do that AT will probably come out with a successor :/ In conclusion, highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE my pair of ATH-R70x headphones! Several months ago I bought a pair of the ATH-R70x headphones because I was going to spend 2 months traveling India and I wanted to be able to mix while I was traveling without dragging my Genelec 8020s all over the country. The clarity and frequency response of these headphones is incredible. They are so comfortable that I can spend 3-8 hours mixing music without getting any symptoms of ear fatigue. I initially thought when I opened them up and held them for the first time that they were going to break because the swivel joints looked so frail - but lo and behold they are constructed of such strong and light materials that after 2 months of deserts, dangerous bus rides, and other perils they are the same now as they were when I bought them - so the build quality is top notch. There are only 2 things buyers need to be aware of when purchasing a pair of ATH-R70x headphones: 1) The ohm impedance is such that these headphones are quiet if you are just plugging them into your laptop's headphone jack and if you are somewhere with some ambient noise (like a cafe) they may be too quiet to work with so you'll want have some kind of audio interface or DAC that will amplify them to a more appropriate level (and no, putting a utility on your master channel and cranking it isn't going to give you the clarity you need with the amplification you've achieved - use a sound card or a DAC). 2) These need to be used with Sonarworks Reference 4 to "truly" achieve a flat frequency response. Before I used Reference 4 I was finding that when I would mix on the R70x's and then check them on the Genelecs the high frequencies would be too harsh and the low end would be lacking - after mixing with Reference 4 I have no problems when I jump on the Genelecs - everything sounds as good on the Genelecs as they do on the R70x's! Long story short: These are great, I recommend them to everyone who needs to do critical mixing on the road. These will last a LONG time and oh my, they sound great
