    Audio-Technica Consumer ATH-AD700X reviews

    ATH-AD700X Audiophile Open-Air Headphones is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very, very good ... but ... Excellent headphones with super clear, balanced, crisp, and (here is the rub) almost sterile neutral sound. Extremely accurate. No coloration. No excessive bass. Super accurate mids and highs. Large and wide sound stage. And, yet, they are almost too clear and crisp, NOT harsh or sibilant, yet a bit fatiguing over time. I often boost the bass and reduce the treble with a graphic equalizer. Perhaps it is just my ears, but these cans are just a bit too bright at times. Very comfortable, nearly weightless. The ear pads are very large and round - almost too large, making the headphones feel loose and clumsy. Durable and well made. They seem fragile because they are so light and airy, but that is only because they are light weight. The spring pads apply very little force - almost not enough pressure - on the top of the head. I am a big guy, and they feel a large and loose on me. My wife does not like them, because they feel so big, and she is well used to wearing headphones daily, so it is not like she is just not used to wearing them. BOTTOM LINE - know what you want from your headphones. If you want clear, accurate and completely honest sound THESE ARE IT - yet be careful what you ask for, as they may be too accurate, honest and clear to enjoy for long periods of time. I would not purchase these again, while I would buy other AT headphones. I have the ATH-M50x and BPHS1 and LOTS of other, mostly close back, cans, and I think I would like a closed back version of this set. My bride prefers the A-T ATH-M50x as more pleasant to listen to. Other cans in the collection include higher end ($150 up) from AKG, Sennheiser, A-T, etc. So, these are REALLY GOOD, just beware you may not like the sound signature over long periods of time. Just MY take... your mileage may vary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sound up to $ 200 Best Sound up to $ 200, it is better they play only senior AD1000x. Awesome female vocals, with male vocals -the situation is slightly worse. LF is also very good but not punch, by the way, rock '90s - very good. Classics could play better, but for the price, again, without competition. Panorama at a very high level. Highly detailed!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent audio quality, hesitant on build quality. Let me start out by saying I love these headphones. Using these plugged into an NI Traktor S2 with grant you very rich audio quality, and the open ear design is perfect for what I need the headset to do. It also keeps up in the gaming side of things, providing great 3d accuracy (at least as far as it can with a stereo setup). The complaints that are present are purely with the flashy design that do more harm than good. First complaint, is the lack of a coiled wire. Although this seems like more of a luxury, I've seen a buddies pair of lower-end ATs with a coiled wire, and it really puzzles me why they would include it on a lower-end pair and not a higher end pair. Second, is what's replacing the basic headphone "headband". I don't really know what to call them other than "head mounts", so for the sake of this review, that's what I'm talking about when I say head mounts. These things move organically to the shape of your head, rotating in 2 axis to fit a roughly average-sized head. They are not adjustable, and they seem very, very fragile. Although I haven't broken them, they seem to have a weak point where I've been waiting for them to break at. Every time the wire gets caught under the wheels of my office chair (remember: not coiled) and I trip over it nearly every time I attempt to leave the room, launching the headset across the room. Surprisingly, the head mounts haven't broken yet, but every time it falls I cringe. By now I should just have faith in the design, but it really does not seem like it will stand up to too many more trips over wires. I'd love to see a sort of stress test on those head mounts to put my mind at peace about them, but they really look weak. Although I love the sound, I can't trust them for on-the-road use, and because of that I don't think my next pair of headphones will be ATs.
