Audio-Technica ATH-W1000X Grandioso Headphone (Playback 46)

 

Audio-Technica's ATH-W1000X “Grandioso” headphone ($699.99) debuted at the CES 2011 show this past January, and from the moment I first heard it I felt that the firm was on to something special. Right off the bat, two things surprised me about the...

Audio-Technika ATH-W1000X review

 

With its new high-end flagship headphone, Audio-Technica looks to take on the mighty Sennheiser

Great bass and power ; Modest background noise reduction

Slight coloration ; Headband awkward to handle

Among major headphone manufacturers, Audio-Technica produces one of the most inclusive ranges available, with something of a speciality in closed-back models.

Great bass and power ; Modest background noise reduction

Slight coloration ; Headband awkward to handle

It also proves comfortable over long listening sessions and the modest, but useful reduction in background noise is a genuine advantage, very often, over openback alternatives. All-in-all, it's a fine transducer.

Wooden headphones with top-notch bass.

Excellent bass performance, Great overall sound quality

Non-removable cable, Lack some admirable qualities of open rivals

Audio Technica ATH-W1000X

 

Best home on-ear headphones ?500-?800, Awards 2010. If you want to listen to music around other people, these closed-back beauties are the way to do so

Superb sound by the standards of closed-back headphones

Not cheap; don?t feel that secure on your head

Audio Technica ATH-W1000X

 

With ‘Grandioso' emblazoned in gold script on the packaging, and in black script along the lacquered wood of Audio Technica's ATH-W1000X, it's clear these headphones are not intended for the hoi poloi. No, these are ‘important' headphones.

Excellent sound reproduction, Light as air to wear

Need to factor in the cost of a headphone amp, Won’t be a good fit for all heads

Wonderfully colored headphones

 

Some of the best built headphones on the market, and the most comfortable despite their size. The frame is entirely magnesium except for the wing mechanisms, and the wood is far and away the best finish you\'ll find on a headphone, including more...
