Audio-Technica ATH AD500X

 

Audio-Technica ATH AD500X

Great reproduction of the higher end of the spectrum ; Open, airy, almost 'sparkly' sound ; Unmatched comfort

Flat response purists would've wished it to be more neutral ; Not very suitable for small heads

More than two years ago we received the ATH AD300 from Audio-Technica for review. Those headphones left an indelible mark with their open airy sound and unmatched comfort; and when we got our hands on the AD 500X recently, it was sweet nostalgia all...

Easy comparison to 500 audiophile headphones. Fantastic.

 

Apart from my single con of not being able to resize to my head contour, where'as the bottom kind of squeezes harder that the top.... this headphones are TOP NOTCH. They sound amazing. Might even get an amplifier and see how far they can go before...

Good sound for the price, but disappointing in Design!

 

When I first got these, I was very impressed by the sound they produced for the price. Good quality, nice clear sound all round, decent volume too! However after a while I realised that they were lacking in wholesomeness of sound and realised that was...

Nice, Natural and Comfortable

 

I use these as part of my mixing process when producing music. I find that an open-back headphone provides a more natural environment in which to judge the balance of the mix. By design these phones are not bass flattering, but that is exactly what the...

My first open headphone - and I am in love with it!

 

I feelings I had almost got me to tears (honest!). I simply cannot put it into words how much I fell in love with these pair of cans. I am not an audiophile, but I did have a good old ATH-M50 from Audio-Technica for more than 3 years now - I loved...
