Audio Technica ATH-AD500 review

 

A mid-range example from Audio Technica's broad new range

Comfortable to use ; Well detailed sound

Treble on the peaky side

Comfortable, excellent value and with great detail retrieval - as long as the peaky treble doesn't put you off

Audio Technica ATH-AD500 review

 

Audio Technica's ATH-AD500 feel very comfy and sound good, but not as good as the competition.

Audio Technica ATH-AD500

 

As one of the bigger and more dedicated names in headphones, Audio Technica has not always enjoyed the best market visibility in the UK.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Good sound for the price

 

Don't spend more on recognized brands or consumerish stuff without first checking out the specs! These are awesome!

For the price I paid at a unfortunately non-newegg site I could not get anything better! These things produce great sound with a broad sound stage

I am not counting off on the headphones for this, but newegg had the incorrect pics listed for this item. I emailed them about it and they quickly corrected this issue. The other negative is that newegg was not the cheapest which hurts me as I love to...

Audio-Technica ATH-AD500

 

I was looking for a pair for casual listening. (Since I have ADAM as my working monitor speaker and also Sennheiser HD280pro) But for the price I spent (about USD $100) I find this pair gives out a very natural sound comparing to my HD280.
