    Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-A990Z reviews

    ATH-A990Z Art Monitor Closed-Back Dynamic Headphones is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Audio-Technica never disappoints I had their previous model, ATH-A900X for four years and decided to upgrade, I wasn't expecting a huge difference in sound, but I was proven wrong. These sound so much better, stronger and more detailed. The music that previously sounded a bit flat now shows it's true character. The quality is top-notch, they are very comfortable and don't make your head sweat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really recommend these headphones. This thing sounds great! I waited almost 2 years to find the right headphone and I finally found them when I bought the A990z. Balance is great as they have a high frequency range, mid range quality is right where it needs to be and bass control is excellent. With 44 ohms impedance, they don't require much power, so using them with laptop audio DACs are perfect. They are also incredibly comfortable for long term use. I previously used a Bose QC15, which are also comfortable, but the A990z are so lightweight that you can just use them for hours and hours and not feel and fatigue. I really recommend them to anyone who wants a solid pair of great sounding headphones. The only complaint I have is the build quality. They could have been made a little stronger. I know the Beyerdynamics and Sennheisers are built better and the A990z are very flimsy compared to some of those.
